Jason,

In the past few weeks I have been meeting with different contractors to get bids for work I need done on my house. Every contractor that walked into my home immediately wanted to know who remodeled my kitchen. Of course, I proudly said Lars. They each said to me, "They do great work, have a great reputation, and they sure did a good job for you. This kitchen looks great!" Of course, I agreed.

Jason, pretty impressive that your competitors respect your company and work. Again, I can't thank you enough for taking me as a client when I know it was not a job you usually do (also a million thanks to Jackson for pleading my case to you so effectively). Thank you for having the best company ever!! Have a fabulous Christmas.

I was looking over the Lars Construction website the other day, reading the nice things that your customers have written about your company, and there was no letter from us!!! It's been almost a year since you finished our project (actually you finished last October 2007), and Jason, we love every single thing!! We love our kitchen, we love our bedroom walk in closet, we love the additional space in our back living room area, we love our windows, our doors, our cabinets and counter tops, etc, etc, ... We love everything!!!

Wonderful Job on our Remodel!

We just finished a remodel of our home with Lars Construction. We pushed out a back wall of our family room giving us an additional 230 sq ft and completely remodeled our kitchen. Our home is beautiful.

Lars Construction was great to work with from the 1st meeting, through the design and construction, all the way to the end. The people were very courteous and attentive to our wants and needs. The design staff did a great job of providing a beautiful design to meet our needs. The project manager met with us weekly during the construction phase to keep us up to speed on where they were and what to expect next. They were always available and willing to take the time to answer our questions. When problems arose, they were very attentive to correct them quickly and did not haggle of issues. They just took care of it.

I would highly recommend Lars Construction to anyone for home remodel. We had a great experience working with them.

Mike,

Well I guess I must have sent this e-mail just about the time you had finished up yesterday! Pretty unexpected and very nice surprise to walk home to. We both very much appreciate you going way beyond the call of duty to work with the flooring company to ensure that the baseboard install issues were corrected. The work you did yesterday makes a huge visual difference; much cleaner and much more finished appearance.

Again, we both really appreciate the great work you did over the last few months to finish up this project ahead of schedule. From initial design, to product selection, to finished functional living space, Niki and I couldn't have been more happy with the customer care and personal attention that John, Lora, Eddie and you provided throughout this project; the attention to detail demonstrated by LARS and all the sub-contractors; and of course, the overall spectacular end-result.

Please pass on to all who worked with us over the last year our thanks for a job well done. And if you would like to add us to your customer reference list it would certainly be our pleasure.

Best,

Mike and Niki

Dear Mr. Larson,

We are so pleased with our home remodel! It was quite a project: 3 bathrooms, hall cabinets, kitchen pantry, tile flooring, etc. but everything went so well. Jackson's design elements gave our project the perfect personalized touches. We couldn't have been more pleased with our project manager, John. The weekly meetings with John kept things right on track... and anytime we had a question he was quick to return our calls. We will be happy to recommend Lars to our friends and family.

Sincerely, Rick and Jan

That would be the one Richard Larson and Ray Allen intend to move back into in August, 10 months after being chased out of the four-bedroom, 3,700-square-foot house by the Witch Creek fire, the fourth largest wildfire in California history.

The $1.2 million rebuilding project is about halfway done, Larson and Allen said in a recent interview.

"Now we're in the home stretch," said Jason Larson, owner of Lars Construction in La Mesa, the contractor the men hired. He is no relation to Richard Larson.

The slab has been poured. The one-story structure has been framed. And stacks of tiles have been piled high on the roof, waiting to be set in place.

The replacement home is rapidly taking shape on a 1-acre lot overlooking a valley that empties into Lake Hodges. However, little is happening down the street.

The pace of rebuilding in The Trails, a neighborhood of one- to five-acre lots and horses, reflects what's happening elsewhere in Rancho Bernardo, one of the North County communities that suffered the most extensive damage in the October wildfires.

Thinh Tran, plan review specialist for the city of San Diego, said the city has issued 68 building permits in the community where 364 homes were destroyed.

Tran said to date two homes have been rebuilt.

The home that Allen and Richard Larson are rebuilding is not far behind.

"We're building the same footprint as we had before," said Larson, who works as a regional product buyer for Costco in San Diego.

That's not all that's the same.

"I still have the same keys," Allen said, as he jingled the metal objects in his hands. He said the new home's door locks will be made to fit them.

"We'll have the same phone number and the same keys to the house," Larson said. "It'll just be a new house."

Two RB homes finished

Larson and Allen, who manages a Costco store in Temecula, said they wanted the home to be built to the same pattern because they loved the house that used to stand in The Trails neighborhood, and they just want it back.

Choosing to replace only what they lost, the men said they set themselves up for quicker approval for a building permit from the city of San Diego. And they said it made working with their fire-insurance company, CIG Insurance, easier.

"Our insurance company has just been fantastic since Day One," said Allen.

Or at least Day Two. That's when an insurance adjuster came by to present them a check to cover their temporary living expenses and to take stock of the damage, Allen said. And about a week later, the men received a check for $1 million ---- the full amount of their policy.

By the time the work is done, the cost is expected to total $1.2 million, Allen said, adding that the insurance company has stated it will cover the difference because they aren't asking for additions.

On the day their American Dream went up in smoke, Allen and Larson went to bed at midnight because TV reports suggested the out-of-control Witch Creek fire was far away.

But just after 4 a.m., they awoke to the sound of a police bullhorn.

"And within five minutes we had a police officer knocking at the front door and someone else pounding on the back window," Larson said.

A huge fireball

He and Allen scrambled to collect a few valuables.

Larson managed to pick up a box of family photos dating to the late 1800s. But he didn't have time to sort through most of the other photos and collectibles he brought south from Portland, Oregon, only a week earlier following the funeral of Larson's father. He had already lost his mother earlier in the year.

"We hadn't even had a chance to go through it and figure out what to do with it," Larson said.

Within 15 minutes, Larson and Allen were joining the largest evacuation in California history, as more than a half million people fled neighborhoods in the path of an advancing wind-fanned inferno.

After blowing through, the blaze that became known as the Witch Creek fire left 1,075 destroyed homes in its wake in Rancho Bernardo, Escondido and Poway. The blaze also was blamed for two deaths in Poway.

As for the Larson-Allen home in The Trails, they figure it went up about three hours after they left. Neighbors "said there was a huge fireball over the top of our house," Larson said.

Larson and Allen feared the worst ---- and their worst fears were realized.

"There was nothing left when we got back," Allen said.

The fire was so hot that a pair of four-foot-wide holes opened in the concrete slab, Larson said. "And the granite countertops were dust."

Larson said there's no way to know for sure what caused the four-bedroom home to catch fire. But his best guess is that embers shooting up from a thicket of trees burning in the ravine below managed to ignite the wood framing by squeezing past an opening below the roof.

As part of the rebuilding project, the men are being careful to plug that opening with cement.

Dear Jason ~

I wanted to take a minute to let you how pleased I am with Lars. We (my husband and I) started with a very basic remodel concept and then with the help of Brandon Spann; created a wonderful new design to get the best use for our space and it is beautiful. All of our neighbors love that the house still "fits" in our neighborhood that was built in 1959. Brandon thought of everything when designing our home. From getting the most usable square feet by removing hallways to which side the dishwasher should be on for maximum convenience. Every last detail was thoroughly thought thru. Once we were happy with the plans, we met Mike Reynolds who was our project manager.

I cannot say enough about Mike. He kept this job moving along one trade after another, everything was scheduled out and went great. I love that Mike is pro-active and always communicates what is happening on a daily basis and what to expect. Mike has been available to us anytime we have needed him, including evenings and weekends. He has a great attitude and has made this process a fun and exciting for our whole family. The kids (Hanna and Chase) really got attached to Mr. Mike, after all he was building their new rooms. I think that every remodel is going to have ??bumps? in the process, but with close communication those bumps are minimal.

All of the trades that came to our home were friendly, clean and really cared out their work. Each one brought suggestions and ideas that can only come from years of experience and pride in their work.

At the same time we were remodeling two co-workers were also remodeling. On many occasions they came to me and vented. Everything from dirty job sites, subs not showing up, sloppy work, and just pure frustration. They would look at me and say, ??has that ever happened to you ?? and with a big smile I would say ??no?. Thank you again for being the best in the business !

Please feel that you can use us as a reference, we would be honored to show off our new dream home.

I have now completed my kitchen remodel and am delighted with the results. It's just as beautiful as I had hoped for. I would like to take a couple of minutes to share how fantastic this process has been. It stared with Seth Larson whose genuine concern for the customer inspired enough confidence for me to pursue what he could do to design the kitchen I had been dreaming of for two years.

To Our Lars Family,

Our remodel is complete and we are extremely happy with the results.

We only had an idea what we wanted to accomplish with the remodel. To change a 1976 track home into a spacious, open and modern home. Seth and John took our wants and designed a home that included everything we wanted and more. By giving them a free hand with the design a round wall was in our plans and a galley kitchen was turned into a beautiful roomy kitchen with a peninsula with a sink that looks over the patio instead of a wall. Thank you Seth and John, working with the two of you was a lot of fun and we will miss those fun times.

Thank you Lora for the ease of picking out tiles, carpet, new appliances, and sinks and faucets for our kitchen and two bathrooms; this is a process that would have been a real nightmare without your help.

When the time for demolition and remodel to start Mike Reynolds arrived on the scene and keep the trades moving. The trades would arrive in the morning and when they left everything was cleaned up, this was much appreciated because we chose to live in the house while this major remodel was going on. Our weekly meetings kept us informed on what was happening during the week and we were contacted if this changed. Mike was on top of the project every minute and never was more than a phone call away. Thank you Mike, you made the whole remodel bearable and after all the horror stories we heard about the other companies we can??t thank you enough.

When you said we would be part of the Lars family you meant it. We tell everyone? If you have any remodel needs Lars Construction is the only one to use.? There have been a lot of people stop by and they have been very impressed. We are your biggest fans and ready to recommend you to anyone anytime. Feel free to use our name and home when needed for references.

Thank You!!

Members of your extended family.

Phyllis and Mike

I wanted to thank you and let you know how pleased I was with my experience with Lars Construction. My bathroom turned out to be better than I expected. I've gone through 5 remodel jobs in the last year and yours was by far the best experience I've had. Everyone of your team treated me like a good friend. They were are very professional and never once did I feel like anything but their one and only client and that whatever I wanted or needed they would jump through hoops to make me happy.

Ed- Working with Ed was great. He explained the process from start to finish and when were in looking at making some changes he was able to keep our original budget in mind which he knew was important to us. I never felt like I was being "sold" anything. He gave me choices. This sales process was very refreshing and much appreciated. Thank you.

Laura- Working with Laura was also a great experience. She took us to the different locations and made great recommendations. When we wanted to pick our own stuff, she was very supportive and never made us feel like we "had" to go through a certain supplier. She had great communication with us and worked within our schedule. We loved having her help us design our bathroom and help with great ideas. When we changed the layout in the beginning she got together everyone so we could brainstorm on the best ideas and it was very much a team effort. The gentleman who did the design was also super. He worked quickly on our changes and provided us with a layout that was exactly what we envisioned with very minimal increase in cost. Very happy.

Brian- Working with Brian was awesome. He was very accommodating and his communication was excellent! If we had a question about something, he was Johnny on the spot to get it resolved. I never once felt like anything I asked was anything short of a "great question" and he made me feel like I was an important part of the team. Any concerns we had about the work was address quickly and above my expectations.

I really feel like I made friends with your team and will recommend Lars to all my friends and clients. Your company went well above my expectations. I couldn't be happier.

Thank you so much!

Laura- Working with Laura was also a great experience. She took us to the different locations and made great recommendations. When we wanted to pick our own stuff, she was very supportive and never made us feel like we "had" to go through a certain supplier. She had great communication with us and worked within our schedule. We loved having her help us design our bathroom and help with great ideas. When we changed the layout in the beginning she got together everyone so we could brainstorm on the best ideas and it was very much a team effort. The gentleman who did the design was also super. He worked quickly on our changes and provided us with a layout that was exactly what we envisioned with very minimal increase in cost. Very happy.

Brian- Working with Brian was awesome. He was very accommodating and his communication was excellent! If we had a question about something, he was Johnny on the spot to get it resolved. I never once felt like anything I asked was anything short of a "great question" and he made me feel like I was an important part of the team. Any concerns we had about the work was address quickly and above my expectations.

I really feel like I made friends with your team and will recommend Lars to all my friends and clients. Your company went well above my expectations. I couldn't be happier.

Thank you so much!

I just want to let you know how impressed we are with your staff. We discovered a water leak in the new bathroom at about 1 PM on Sunday. I called Brian Wood and he had Larry Bowen here with-in the hour. The leak was repaired and the water back on before 3:00 PM. The fact that both Larry and Brian were here on a Sunday afternoon and did not put it off until Monday morning was way above and beyond the call of duty. "GO LARS" you guys are the best.

Doug and myself are constantly impressed by the amount of attention given to our project. If not for the window issue, which is no fault to Lars, our project has been run smoothly. Above and beyond the high quality work we are seeing, I have to mention the high quality people I get talk with each day. Your framers especially, were such a pleasure to have around. John Jones is staying one step ahead to keep this job moving. Jim Murry has been there each step of the way to help us make smart decisions. John Klaka made a special trip over to ease my anxiety over skylight placement. With each major decision, one of these guys, or all of them, have been there to walk Doug and I through it.

We are entering the final stage of construction now. We know we are going to love our remodel when it's complete. I just thought you should know how much Doug and I appreciate your amazing team. They truly go above and beyond.

We just wanted to write a quick note to tell you all how amazing you have been with our project. We know you all saw the mid-term survey, but we want you to know how much this project has meant to us.

We were really fortunate to be able to buy this house in the first place, and the kitchen has been our one "big dream" project. We can't thank you enough for taking the time to meet, talk, and explain the entire process to us. We are very excited and we truly thank all of you and your staff for all of the hard work that has (and still is) going into our new home!

I want you to know how much we are enjoying our home. The renovations you all did are stunningly beautiful. My favorite part, of course is my tub and vanity area. I cannot tell you how blessed I feel to have a bathroom so beautiful. And Carlie??s beautiful room... makes me a little emotional! I always wanted her to have a gorgeous room she could enjoy. Now she has a breathtakingly, beautiful room that exceeds my expectations. I couldn??t see Mike??s vision for that ceiling before it was done but wow...did it turn out more beautiful than I could have ever imagined. Once we finish decorating the house we plan to have a block party to show all the neighbors... that??s how proud of it we are.

I saw a Lars commercial where a client said that working with Lars felt like family, and I have to agree with that statement. I got to kn ow so many of the people that worked on the house and each of them was so kind and respectful when they were in my home.

When people ask me if I would hire Lars again, I say, "Absolutely, without hesitation!" Despite the hiccups along the way, I always felt that Lars would make things right and take care of us....and that reassurance was worth a lot.

We would like to say "Thank you" to Lars and all the people that helped make our project a success. We will have many happy years and much enjoyment in our home.

Lars recently completed a remodel in our home to convert a couple rooms and garage into one large game room. We wanted to pass on to you our utmost thanks for the wonderful job that was done from start to finish with our remodel. Lars?? approach to home remodels, the strong project team and quality workmanship by the trades has made this a great experience for us. Were very happy with how the room turned out and a huge part of that goes to Ed (Project Designer ) and Joe (Project Manager ), who we are very thankful for and appreciative of their efforts.

Their people oriented approach and focus on communication, which included weekly meetings and timely response to emails, resulted in no surprises. Joe made sure things kept moving andwas exceptional at managing the project and coordinating the trades. Along with the quality workmanship by the trades, we also appreciated that they were all very courteous, respectful and went the extra mile with their services. The folks at your Custom Cabinet Shop and Custom Painter/Finisher did a great job with cabinets and staining. And we really appreciate the attention to detail and workmanship that you did with the wood flooring. The same can be said for the stucco work that was done as well. The project notebook received at the end of the project was very informational and a really nice touch! Thanks again for the terrific experience and job well done!

I'm sure we'll enjoy Hawai'i as much as we've been enjoying the kitchen. Thanks so much. You should know when Jean went to our bank in Casa De Oro, she got in a conversation with a teller who is planning a kitchen remodel and traded notes. The upshot is the woman asked Jean who did our remodel, and you'd never guess who she recommended? Some outfit by the name of Lars ... which she recommended highly. Hope it pans out. Will send pictures and be in touch in the future. Thanks again. We always knew we were dealing with quality people.

After a long search for a general contractor to do our room addition/roof, working with Lars Construction was a breath of fresh air and a satisfying experience. Quality, professionalism, great communication is what you will get. All the subcontractors did an excellent job in a timely fashion. They exceeded all my expectations and have earned my business for future renovations.

I can??t believe that it has been nearly a year since our kitchen and bath remodel was completed. Every day I love my home more. I love the way it looks and the workability of the space. I am so appreciative that you were able to take my thoughts and visions and make them a reality.

Every time we have friends and family to the house, they are amazed at the job that Lars did. We get compliments every time someone comes into the house.

Those who had seen the kitchen before are surprised at how much the new design opened up the room and how rich and attractive it is, and those that never saw the kitchen before love how functional and beautiful the space is.

I can??t thank everyone at Lars enough, but especially Mike Gentile and Jim Murray who really made the extra effort to make sure we were satisfied.

Hi, I wanted to take a minute to let you know that we truly believe that Lars Construction is the best. You and your wonderful team built our home about two years ago. We recently had a problem with our master shower. It only took one call to Brandon Spann and the problem was taken care of. Our shower is now repaired and I will continue to refer you to everyone I know.

My neighbor across the way is currently remodeling with Lars (Brandon). We are now experiencing the ??fun? of watching them remodel, as they did with us. Last night we saw them taking pictures of the progress, my daughter Hanna said look mom they are taking pictures just like we did.

Brandon also met with a family friend that we grew up with, regarding remodeling her kitchen. Not sure where they stand as far as the project, but you know that I told Vy that you are the best !!

You do truly stand behind your words and in this day and age, that??s refreshing.

Thank you again,

Michelle

I just want to let anyone know that is thinking of remodeling their home of the incredible experience that my family and i had with Lars Construction. After seeing many of there commercials on TV, I must be honest that I was very cautious as many times the ads that companies run can be deceptive. I want everyone to know that this company is the real deal. They actually do "Say what you mean and Mean what they say" They bend over backwards to make sure that you are completely satisfied. I am not kidding. We felt that we not only hire the right company but an angel to look over us while we we under construction. They were right there to ensure that we were taken care of and that we were completely happy at the end. I would tel my friends and family that I hired Lars to remodel my home and it seems that I would hear the same thing - They would say " I hear that they are a really good company" - Well let me tell you they are a a dream come true when it comes to remodeling and if you've ever heard a remodeling horror story, well it's more than likely that they didn't hire Lars. Feel free to contact me for more.
