Backyard of Pine Steet home

The Kasten Builders team was a true pleasure to work with. The residence they built for us in San Francisco’s Pacific Heights neighborhood, The Two Way House, required a lot of attention to detail, material selection and technical execution. They came through in spades with a foreman who cared about giving us quality craftsmanship and who was a pleasure to work with. Kasten Builder’s sub contractors were also great. The cabinetmaker, electrician and tiles setter all listened to and teamed with us to provide our client with a beautifully built home. Our clients are very proud of their home and I look forward to working with Kasten Builders again

Kasten Builders exceeded our expectations in every regard.  They not only were diligent and responsive at every step of the way, but brought an exceptional level of experience and creativity to the multitude of refinements that bridges the gap between our concept and completion of the project.  We were lucky to be able to work with Kasten Builders!

Seafirth Residence

We worked with Kasten Builders for nearly 2 years, from the inception of our project all the way through completion. We have had an excellent experience throughout this somewhat arduous process.  Our project was a complete renovation of an existing 1970’s structure.  The house was taken down to the studs and then completely re-built.  Everyone at Kasten Builders was professional, friendly and great to work with.  We definitely recommend them!

Kasten Builders level of craftsmanship, professionalism and general care for the outcome of the project exceeded my expectations every step of the way. They were able to execute a design with a high level of minimalist detail and high-end finishes at a great value without cutting corners. Pete was a pleasure to work with and the on-site leadership was exceptionally handled. I hope to have the opportunity to work on another project with Kasten Builders in the future.

Cass Calder Smith

My firm, CCS Architecture, worked with Kasten Builders, the contractor on the Martin House.  This new home was a challenging project to build due to its steep site, modernist design, and the high expectations of the client.  Kasten rose to the challenge and built a great house.  Denny and his team were always a pleasure to work with, and I would work with them again on any scale project.

Rosa Suessman

Rosa’s project involved the remodeling of her kitchen, master bathroom, and complete interior painting all while she and her husband lived in the house.  We set up a temporary kitchen in the living room and took great care to make the process as painless as possible.
