From Fixer-Upper to Fabulous Beach Cottage
Joe and I bought a 1955 fixer upper beach cottage a few years ago. With pretty much our entire life’s accumulations of tools being a screwdriver and a hammer. Initially we started out doing cosmetic paint work. But when we were ready to tackle the bigger project, the paint company owner referred us to Nicodemus Construction with the golden words of “you can trust”. We met David with absoulutely no previous remodeling experience, and a picture from Coastal Living magazine.
And so began a six month journey into this new world of construction. The scope of the work included a complete kitchen tear out, removing the existing original roof that was hiding between the bottom and newer second floor, removing a weight bearing wall, adding a fireplace, adding windows, and changing pretty much everything this side of the exterior walls. David guided us. Inspired us. Organized us. And transformed us. David navigated us through the maze of architecture, engineer, and city permit procedures. His workers showed up on time, performed magic, and cleaned up. The sub-contractors, same. His contacts, all easy to work with, and beyond excellence in quality. He was always readily available. Love his job presence and sense of style. Without hesitation, I recommend this company for ANY PROJECT.

Formless to Functional
Form or function? Our original kitchen had neither. David Nicodemus was not put off. From our first meeting, he helped my ideas of an ideal kitchen evolve into an actual ideal kitchen. He and his crew were thorough, several times going beyond the scope of what the project had appeared to be. They were tidy, cleaning up every day and in every work area. They worked quietly. They were careful about and courteous to our pets. Although it is trying to live through a top-to-bottom kitchen remodel, the presence of subs or David’s crew each day gave us confidence that our project was a high priority and that it wouldn’t be long before we could actually boil water again. Our new kitchen perfectly marries form and function. It is a place we love to be. I would hire him again without reservation.

2009 Was A Good Year
David Nicodemus and his professional crew completed 5 large projects for us in 2009. One job consisted of building a 3 bedroom- 2 1/2 bath home from the ground up, and another was a tear down and complete rebuild. The other projects involved solving extensive drainage issues and upgrades to a house, including a kitchen rebuild. He constructed an outdoor kitchen at our residence and upgraded a rental house from the 1950′s. During these extensive and involved projects, not once did Nicodemus Construction leave us hanging or fail to meet their anticipated schedules. All projects were completed quickly and on time with extremely friendly and courteous service. We would highly recommend Nicodemus Construction for any size project you have planned. They will not let you down!

We had a challenging remodel of our home in Santa Rosa Valley including the building of a high end screening room above our garage, as well as the gutting and rebuilding of several other rooms in our home. David and his crew, as well as his sub-contractors did impeccable work. Our job required an immense amount of work and the level of detail involved was very extensive. Our screening room includes very intricate crown moulding which took several weeks to install. Although David could have delegated this effort to this crew or to his subs he chose to personally do this work to make absolutely sure it would come as planned. I can say unequivocally that we are thrilled with the end result which could not have been achieved without the professional expertise of David Nicodemus. He is a pleasure to work with. Always a gentleman. Always there to make sure we were satisfied. He is as much an artisan as he is a builder, equally comfortable with major construction as he is with intricate detail. No regrets. David is a class act.

Skilled Craftsmen, Unforgettable Results
In addition to being hardworking, honest and skilled David and his crew engage his customers in the design process and allow “our” design to become a beautiful reality. Every guest who walks in my bathroom is awed !!. And, when they step into my guest room and purple (family) room they are envious. I miss having David and his crew around. They feel like family when they are working in my home. I always tell David I wish I had more money so I could have him do job after job for me. No job is too small nor too large. He builds unforgettable homes are well as he remodels small guest bathrooms which he did for a friend. Do not pass up an opportunity to have David work for you, you will not be disappointed.
