Dana V. Beck


Hello all. I'm a seasoned builder with three and a half decades of hands-on building experience in northern California, just north of SF. Most of my projects are high-end, hillside homes, including a 4-story home in Sausalito with 270 degree views of SF and the bay.

As a minimalist, my approach to construction is to keep it simple - cut through the clutter and chaos and hire those that can do the job at a fair price. This includes realtors, architects, contractors and subs. After 20 years in the field,I wrote this book between semesters at law school. Then, I had the opportunity to hone in on the building issues and strategies that could make or break a build, or remodeling project. Let me know if this helped you or if I can answer questions directly.
