About the Author
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.

With his elaborate, trust worthy, and lengthy experience, he has helped guide me through a very difficult process, overcome what I thought would be the end of me, and gave me crucial information and skills, not only in the construction field, but my own life and financial future. In a field where anyone can, and will, take advantage of you, this book is a money and life saving, must read. This information cannot be found anywhere else. Dana has been through it all and overcome the endless issues again and again, there is no better place to get these essential and necessary trade secrets. Highly recommended.
