ESB: Custom Home Project

"Dan (Concept Builders) is an honest, hard working, professional home builder. We've built two large custom homes in the last decade with Concept Builders and both projects were very well done.  
With that much investment it is wonderful to know that you are working with an honest, principled company that will stand by their work (and make sure the subs do as well).  
There are no surprises or hidden costs with Dan and he is competitively priced. If we were going to build again, we would only need to make one call, to Concept Builders."


SJL: New Custom Home Design

"Dan built a custom home for my wife and I. Throughout the process he kept the project on schedule, and was extremely helpful advising us as to the many choices one has to make in building a home. His recommendations were always appropriate for our budget and greatly added to the quality and livability of our home. Our experience was so positive that we chose Dan again when we decided to build an addition on our home. I would highly recommend Dan without hesitation to anyone who is considering building a home or remodeling an existing home. I would rank him as one of the very best in his profession."


JNP: Custom Home Project

"We happen to be people that are detail oriented and tend toward the perfectionist side of things. So the fact that Concept Builders has built two custom homes for us should speak volumes. Dan has an easy going manner which is very helpful in overcoming any challenges that may arise. We relied on his knowledge and experience as we developed our plans.

One of his most important attributes is his ability to listen. Whether it concerned something we were trying to achieve in the design or dealing with material and construction, we were happy with the communication. We have been in our second custom for almost 3 years. We have no reservation about recommending Concept Builders."

"Concept Builders Inc. not only remodeled our house but created a home that we will live for many years and share with our family and friends. Dan and Joe listened to our wants and needs while working throughout the remodeling process. They exceeded all our expectations, returned phone calls the same day, kept us updated on the progress and were happy to answer all our questions; we appreciate their knowledge and professionalism. The skilled craftsmen they have working for them, all were respectful of our our wishes. They entire process from beginning to end was a great experience. If you are considering a remodel or building a home, we wholeheartedly recommend choosing Concept Builders Inc. "

Thank you Dan & Joe!

Architect's Office

"We now have a wonderful looking workspace for our interior designers, along with a new conference room, and private office space. Working with Dan and Joe of Concept Builders was a pleasure. They, and their sub-contractors, were prompt and professional during the entire project. They worked well also with requested change-orders during the project and completed the work within the estimated timeline and within budget. The quality of the service and work are of excellent quality. 

I would highly recommend this company to any client or friend."

+ BNH: New Custom Home

"Concept Builders built a custom home for us in Carbonado, WA. Working with Dan and Joe Schaafsma made it really easy for us to get exactly what we wanted. They worked with us every step of the way and made sure all of our needs were taken care of. Their attention to detail was second to none and they really did make the building process as easy as possible.
We would definitely recommend Concept Builders to anyone considering a first class builder. We couldn't be happier with our new home thanks to Dan and Joe!"

+ CT: Custom Kitchen Remodel

"Dan and Joe Schaafsma of Concept Builders were general contractors who remodeled my outdated 50-year-old kitchen. I met with Dan who looked at my basic Home Depot remodel design and sent me to a cabinet supplier for a different (and lower!) quote for cabinets. Dan asked me questions about my preferences for plumbing, appliances, lighting, counter tops, and back splash. Dan provided lists of vendors and suppliers with whom he has established relationships. I made appointments and met with sales representatives and designers for cabinets, counter tops, tile, hardware, plumbing, lighting, and appliances. Dan sent me an electronic draft of a construction agreement and later met with me for finalizing the bid and the agreement. I decided to lower costs by being responsible for the demolition and painting myself.

Joe coordinated the scheduling of subcontractors. He kept me informed of dates and times that materials, cabinets, counter tops, appliances, and workers and craftsmen would arrive. Joe let me know when there were inevitable changes in the schedules. He was responsive when I had questions or concerns. When I was unhappy about the design of the lower corner cabinets, Joe researched, problem-solved, and created a perfect solution with which I was very pleased.

Joe and all of the craftsmen, technicians, and workers were respectful, punctual, and professional in interactions with me and my very modest home. They arrived at the promised dates and times. They used drop cloths to protect my floors and plastic sheeting taped into place as barriers to reduce the dust from dry wall work. They cleaned up at the end of each work day.

I am thrilled with the finished project! The work came in under budget and fulfilled my vision of a new kitchen. It is much more open and bright. I appreciate the effect of the under counter lighting. I love the coordinated look of the counter top and back splash of ceramic tile, and accent of glass tile and slate. I now have more than double the counter space for cooking prep and for entertaining. I highly recommend hiring Concept Builders for remodel projects."

+ AEW: Custom Home Design & Build

Concept Builders was recommended to us by a neighbor that was familiar with their work. We contacted Dan Schaafsma with the idea of building a Craftsman style home with over eight thousand square feet including a two lane bowling alley. We also wanted a house with striking appeal from the street as well as the lake. Dan designed us a home with the floor plan that met our needs, and exceeded our expectations.

The project started with demolishing two existing homes on Tapps Island. We had concerns of environmental issues due to being on the lake, and Association regulations. Dan worked closely with both the County and the Association. The President of our Association said he had never seen such detailed plans addressing the concerns of the Tapps Island community.

When the project started we received a schedule and a time frame as to when items such as lighting fixture, plumbing fixtures, colors, and flooring needed to be decided. He also gave us a detailed list of suggested suppliers to work with. With this schedule and the list of suppliers it made it easy for us to pick items without any pressure. Dan helped us with design choices so everything worked with the Craftsman style we wanted to end up with.

Friends that had houses built for them said this will test our marriage. Concept Builders had put together such a detailed plan that it was easy to stay on task.

Concept Builders had never put a bowling alley in a house before. Yet you would have thought after seeing the final product that they had done this many times. The detail to the finishes throughout the house is phenomenal.

The house has been finished for a while now. And whenever I have called with a question, I have never had to wait for a response. They have contacted me on numerous occasions just to see how things are going. Every phone call to them I feel like I am talking to a family member. We are planning to build a house at Snoqualmie Pass in the future. There is no question they will be the one for this project.
