A Testimonial From One of Our Clients

 "I was remodeling my living room and kitchen and needed to remove a  bearing wall. Luke Ensberg came to my house, asked me what I wanted to  do, and listened carefully. The City required a very involved permit  approval process, but Luke provided thorough and accurate structural  plans, and got the bearing wall removal approved by the City. He was  courteous and responsive, willing to meet at my place in evenings and on  weekends to get the permit approved. I did the remodel construction  work myself, so I know the quality of Luke's services from the  perspective of a builder and homeowner. I enthusiastically recommend  calling him if you want to modify the structure of your home."
