We have a unique Southern California custom rancher which was designed and built in the early 1960’s. The house sits on a concrete slab and had no basement. We wanted to add on an addition that would give us some additional room for the kids as well as a basement. We started working with Dave Lunden and the Timberlake team several years before we actually started the project. Once we began the project, Dave and his team worked meticulously to ensure that the new addition would match the existing house design to give the impression it was part of the original structure. Timberlake did a fabulous job throughout the building process to ensure every detail was met to complete satisfaction. I was especially impressed when one of the inspectors came in a said “Oh this is a Timberlake project, they always keep their job site clean and we rarely find any issues." I think the biggest part of a successful project and satisfied customer is tied to the project manager, who is the primary customer facing individual. Ken did an awesome job in his role as project manager. His default answer for everything is “No problem we will take care of it." That statement certainly put us at ease many times during the project when issues or concerns arose. We were extremely impressed with Timberlake and would recommend them for any home improvement project.

Timberlake Design/Build enabled The Narrows to do the unthinkable – sustain our restaurant business while undergoing a renovation to update our interiors, modify the main dining area layout to ensure water view sight lines, replace our bar and create more bar and booth seating. Dave Lunden and his team worked hard to provide a safe, secure, and professional renovation with as little impact as possible for both our staff and our customers. Often working late into the evenings, scheduling tasks around our dining schedule and finding creative ways to get the necessary work accomplished, Timberlake Design/Build’s high standard of performance, knowledge and skill was demonstrated throughout the entire process. They fully lived up to their “on time, on budget, with care” pledge as schedules were maintained and all projects were completed on time. We love our fresh new look!

The Jackson Residence - Stairway

Timberlake and Dave Lunden was recommended to me by my neighbors, and I must say they were very accurate in their assessment. His company did a comprehensive renovation of my home on a tight budget and time frame, with lots of community constraints. They exceeded all my expectations! Dave is very helpful, and friendly. He takes his time to make sure you are comfortable with the scope of work, has clear budgets and final pricing- it's really easy to track changes. Dave stays with the project throughout the entire project- start to finish. His team shares the same sense of quality, it was really nice to have a group of people all sharing the same goal - completing a first-class project.

The Ronan Residence - Screened Porch

Timberlake Design did a fantastic job from start to finish. Design through finishing details. Can't say enough. They built a screened in porch over an existing deck. Open to my idea during the design process. Was able to take what I liked the best and add it to the design and make it work. Listened to what we said and actually made it matter. Staff was great. On time, courteous, detail oriented. Project timeline was spot on. Inspections, subcontractors, clean up etc. Would highly recommend them for your construction, renovation needs.

I have been the Architect on several projects working with Dave Lunden and Timberlake. Dave's hands on approach starts during the design phase. This upfront input is critical to the project's success. When it came time to renovate our new home, we acquired multiple prices. While Timberlake's estimate was not the lowest, they were very competitive. When we considered the added value their experience and approach brought to the table they were the obvious choice. Our renovations included reorganizing the existing space layout and repurposing other spaces. We opened up walls to create a large open plan and expand the kitchen. The project also included improvements to the master suite. Timberlake took special care to isolate the construction area from the remaining home and protect the finishes to remain. This was critical to keep the budget in line and allow us to stage in the areas of the home not being renovated. During construction we came across some significant structural issues due to the unusual framing configuration employed by the original builder. Timberlake called in a structural engineer and had a solution developed in 1 day. They did the remedial framing over the weekend and were able to put us back on schedule in no time. This is just one example of the type of attention and dedication Timberlake brought to our project and the reason they were selected to perform the work in the first place. We were very satisfied with the entire process, level of service and the product provided by Timberlake and highly recommend them to anyone looking to make improvements to their home.

The Devitt Residence - Living Room

Timberlake performed a significant and sizable renovation for our home in Annapolis. Timberlake did a fantastic job! Dave Lunden and his team were proactive on design and material options, finished on-time and under budget!! Our community association also has very specific and arduous rules & requirements which Timberlake managed extremely well. The three best things about Timberlake are that each member of the team was nicer than the last, their attention to detail ensured we had no surprises and have unconditionally stood by their work.

Suzanne and I wanted to write and thank you for the wonderful job Timberlake did in completing our expansion and renovation project; the magic word all owners like to hear… way ahead of schedule and under budget. Timberlake’s attention to detail, quality craftsmanship, collaborative spirit, and knowledgeable advice on engineering and architectural expression was outstanding. Through your assistance in the permit acquisition process, scheduling of inspections, coordination of all the subcontractors and working with our community design and construction regulations you made the process enjoyable. Our neighbors in the community were very appreciative of how neat and tidy you kept the site during construction and the courteous nature of your field superintendant.. We enjoyed every minute of working with the Timberlake team and won’t hesitate to recommend you to all of our friends.

We demolished an old portion of the house and added an addition which included a new kitchen, bathroom, entry way, mudroom, double garage and recreation room above the garage with a full bath. Timberlake is a superb contractor. Their work was flawless, timely, and affordable. Every employee they have, and subcontractor they used, was a true pleasure to deal with. They took all of the stress out of a very stressful process. They responded to every request we made, and then some, adding special touches to the project. I recommend them wholeheartedly.

The Greenhalgh Residence - Kitchen

We were extremely happy with Timberlake. After interviewing three companies, we found Timberlake to be the most flexible and accommodating to our (changing) needs. Everyone we worked with was terrific and represented the company very well. We feel we got to know them quite well and I enthusiastically introduced friends and neighbors to them when they asked about our project. Our project included a three story addition (including finished attic) multiple dormer windows, MD flagstone paved front porch, a completely redone and enlarged kitchen, and new exterior HardiePlank and stone siding throughout. Two years later, we are still very pleased with the quality and workmanship, having had not a single post-completion issue with the work. We still get many complements from friends and neighbors alike about the project. We would not hesitate to recommend Timberlake.

I was able to step back and just let the process happen under the site manager's direction and feel confident that everything would be done according to plan. But I must admit the final product exceeded my expectations. As a part time Real Estate Agent, when I have clients who are in the market for a new home, I will not hesitate to recommend Timberlake, and I will let them know that I speak from experience as a satisfied [repeat] customer.

The Hankins Residence - Kitchen

To all the folks at Timberlake – CONGRATULATIONS – and thank you, thank you, thank you on a very tough whole house renovation on an original, 1955 stacked 5-level stone house in Cape Arthur. Very well done and we won’t hesitate to tell our friends and neighbors about how wonderful Timberlake was to work with.

The Hook Residence - Exterior

When we met with you and your staff we said we were looking for a builder that could do three things: build our house on time, on budget and with the quality one would expect from a custom builder. We selected Timberlake because we felt your company could deliver on all three. We were not disappointed. Timberlake was able to meet our building deadline, stay on budget and deliver a quality built home.

From the first time we met you, we knew what an up-standing honorable company you were. That’s one of the many reasons we trusted our renovation project to Timberlake. Thank you for your patience and dedication – we love our ‘new’ home!

I just want to take a few minutes to extend a heartfelt THANK YOU to you and your staff at Timberlake Design/Build for restoring our faith in the home building and renovation industry. You and your team have transformed our once barren lots into a widely sought after community. Most importantly, it was done with integrity, quality workmanship, professionalism, and outstanding customer service.

Thanks again for all you do and your patience with me while I have been stressed out, confused, and let us not forget, ignorant when it comes to new construction. You have remained professional and courteous and always quick to respond and resolve. If you ever need a reference, please do not hesitate to call on me.

It is refreshing to know that there are still companies and people within companies that respect each other and are true working partners to get a job/whatever completed/done. Kevin and I are very happy and can’t wait to see how our home is going to be transformed. Thanks again!

The Timberlake Design/Build folks made any hiccups in the construction schedule melt away. The customer service we received from this team is excellent ranging from email reminders/confirmations to personal calls. Timberlake realized our dream and restored the faith we had lost about professional standards. This is an amazing team!

The Roden Residence - Exterior

We hired Timberlake to do an extensive renovation of our home in 2009. They were a pleasure to work with during every step of the process. Everyone at Timberlake was honest, very reliable and extremely organized. The project was finished on time and on budget. It progressed exactly as he said that it would with no hidden costs or delays. The Project Manager and all of the subcontractors were a pleasure to deal with on a daily basis. They shared in our enthusiasm, were polite, highly skilled, hard working and responsive. I have spoken with several people who have had extensive renovations done to their home and frequently it was a stressful and unpleasant experience for them. I can honestly say that our experience with Timberlake was the opposite. Since the renovation I have contacted them several times for questions about materials or warranties and they have always responded to my requests immediately. If we were ever to renovate another home we would definitely use Timberlake.

The Schomig Residence - Kitchen

We are writing to express our appreciation for Timberlake's recent renovation of our home. Every aspect of the project - from the initial planning to the final walk-through - exceeded our high expectations. The most important measure of a remodeling contractor is not its ability to complete a project flawlessly, because obstacles and missteps inevitably insert themselves into all projects. Our renovation was no exception - it had its share of impediments. Timberlake's handling of those impediments, however, was exceptional. Your staff consistently responded to every inquiry, concern and request with professionalism and sincerity. Everyone persevered, regardless of the effort required, until the task was completed to our demanding satisfaction. Should anyone with plans to renovate seek our opinion, we'll enthusiastically recommend Timberlake. If they visit our home, however, we won't have to say anything - the renovation speaks for itself.

After dealing with rain every day in September, Timberlake was still able to complete our home in time for us to move across the county and move in shortly before Christmas. The house is beautiful and my wife and I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out. It was refreshing to work with a team from across the country that I could tell very quickly was hardworking, honest, down to earth and extremely competent. The Timberlake team worked miracles with both the house and timeline and we will always be very grateful. Timberlake knocked it out of the park.

Our experience with Timberlake was wonderful. You all are truly professional and I would not hesitate to recommend you to friends.
