What Our Clients Say

During the summer of 2002, we entered into an agreement with Brian Burns and Alpine Valley Homes to do a major remodel of our home in Truckee. The work included an extensive reengineering of load bearing structures and shear walls, as well as a total redesign of the interior spaces, addition of square footage in the unfinished basement and reframing for new windows and doors throughout the home. In all, the project was to take an entire summer.

From the first footing to the final brushstroke, Brian and his crew performed flawlessly. The crew was always on time, worked diligently and safely, and the resulting craftsmanship is stellar. We were constantly informed of progress, kept appraised of budgets and timeline issues, and were always “in the loop” when decisions were made.

We have thoroughly enjoyed our “new” home for almost two years, and would not do one thing differently. Of all the decisions involved in a remodel of this scope, the best one we made was in choosing our contractor. We enthusiastically recommend Bryan Burns and his company and welcome any inquiries by prospective clients wishing more information.

Last year we undertook a multi phase remodel of a home we purchased in Northstar including a deck expansion. Alpine Valley Homes did an outstanding job. They finished the project on time and on budget. Bryan and his team pay a great amount of attention to detail and it shows in the final product. Bryan’s eye for design was also very helpful to us when we were selecting finishes or designing something like a bookcase. I highly recommend Alpine Valley Homes for any type of construction or remodeling project.

I would highly recommend Bryan to anyone who is interested in doing home, office construction or remodeling. We worked with Bryan over a 5 month period remodeling our newly purchased, built in 73′, condo. Bryan was able to meet with us on short notice. He accompanied us to the condo and gave us many ideas and possibilities. Because of his many remodels in the area, he was able to show us examples of his work nearby. We particularly liked his positive attitude. Whatever we asked for, he had several suggestions as to how it could be accomplished. When we did not know exactly how to do something he was great at brainstorming ideas with us. He was very specific in his time and cost estimates and held to them throughout the project. He kept us informed if there were any problems and called if he had any questions. Even though we were working with him from Michigan, he was always available to us through cell phone, fax or e mail. Best of all his work was of the finest quality. Everything he promised, he delivered plus some. We will definitely use Bryan for our next project.
