Chavin Construction


  • "Michael's attention to detail is very impressive. He made our wreck of an old house into a gorgeous, solid, updated home, and came up with many ideas for improvements that even our architect hadn't thought of. He was responsive to and seeking of our input every step of the way, and was always available by phone or in person for consultation. He is thoroughly professional, on time with estimates and billing statements, and takes great care to make sure that both parties are on the same page, start to finish. Even our one-year-old loved Michael." (E. Frankel, Berkeley)
  • "I have known Michael Chavin for over two decades. Michael is everything one would dream for in a contractor: he is experienced, knowledgeable, skilled, timely, pleasant and honest. I give him an unqualified endorsement." (N. Taxy, San Francisco)
  • "His ability to accommodate surprises that often happen with remodel work and his patience with details were much appreciated." (J. Larson, AIA, Berkeley)
