I had the pleasure of working with Alex and Lisa to design and build out a one bedroom apartment on he ground floor of our single family home. It was as smooth and painless an experience as one could ever hope for!... READ MORE

9th Ave to the Nines, San Francisco

Tackling our first major remodel project was made much easier by working with Alex and Lisa. Before my husband and I began researching whom to work with, we spent time learning about the difference between a traditional Design-Bid-Build process and a Design & Build firm. We had heard agonizing tales of disappearing and difficult contractors and subcontractors... READ MORE

Lisa was a pleasure to work with, I highly recommend her team! She was clear in her communications, quick to respond to questions, and always stayed within budget. Her sense of style and eye for design made choosing finishes super easy and we're absolutely thrilled with the end results! I would welcome any opportunity to work together again.

We highly recommend the exceptional home renovation service that Nerland Building & Restoration provides. We recently bought a 1940 single family home in San Francisco, and renovated the kitchen and bathrooms with the Nerlands. The project was extremely close to the original budget, and the delivered product was exceptional. Their attention to customer service and post renovation follow up on details were great! Highly recommended!

Nob Hill Townhouse,

We worked with Lisa and Alex to remodel a 1908 Victorian condo in Pac Heights and had a very good experience—definitely the best team we have worked with of the four remodel projects we’ve completed.

A totally new home, thanks to Alex & Lisa When we started the adventure of remodeling the main level of our home, we met with several design/build firms, checked references, and finally chose Alex and Lisa because they were the best fit for our project.

I highly recommend Alex and Lisa Nerland for your home design and build projects.

Alex and Lisa were simply amazing and a pleasure to work with. We just bought a new house in the Twin Peaks area of San Francisco. We wanted to knock down the wall between the living room and the kitchen and renovate the two upstairs bathrooms that were just outdated. We had four different contractors come to look at our place and give us bids....READ MORE

We could not be happier with the result of our Tiburon remodel we completed with Nerland Building & Restoration. This was our second project with NBR.

For this project, we needed an entire renovation of our downstairs....READ MORE

Mission Dolores Residence,

This was our first home renovation project and we went in weary, having heard so many horror stories of projects going way above budget and taking much longer than estimated.

I was very happy with my decision to use Nerland Building & Restoration for the complete renovation of my Sausalito home. The renovations started in our outdated kitchen.
