Beautiful Custom Staircase

Our older home was in need of an immediate staircase overhaul when we moved in. Dan and his team gave us great advice for an affordable, yet classic and elegant-looking staircase that matched the feel of the rest of our home (as we didn’t want a new staircase sticking out like a sore thumb). The result was a beautiful stairway with treads and handrails that our kids could now safely go up and down without us worrying, as Dan custom lengthened the landings by an inch or so. We have never felt such a solid staircase. We can literally jump on it and not feel any give!

Thank You DJ Hovestol Construction!

Impressive Detail and Quality

We were looking for a master carpenter to do the finishing work for a major remodel in our town home in Geneva National. After meeting with Dan, he convinced us he should be our general contractor for the project. His experience working on fine homes, the excellent subcontractors he introduced us to, his creative vision as a carpenter, and his attention to detail, were exactly what we were looking for.

We agreed on a budget and a timetable, and we were very pleased with the results. As in all projects, changes occurred, but Dan worked with us so that the costs were contained and they were finished on time. We introduced Dan to our designer, and she was impressed with the detail and quality. Our neighbors were also impressed.

Dan is a man with integrity, and we highly recommend him.

Dan’s the kind of guy that makes you want to kick your husband to the curb and have him move in. Clever, meticulous, and soft on the eyes … a housewife’s dream contractor.

110% Recommended

We initially hired Dan to complete a set of stairs, and we could not be happier. He is an expert in his trade—professional, honest, and has become a friend that I enjoy spending time with. We are so pleased with Dan’s work that we have hired him again as the general contractor for an addition to our vacation home in Lake Geneva. We would recommend him 110% to anyone looking for a contractor.
