Helped me save thousands of dollars

I would like to document my experience in dealing with G&S Construction Company located in South Lake Tahoe, California. I lost my home in June of 2007 in the Angora Fire. In Early October of the same year, I started rebuilding my home and G&S was contracted to frame the house. I had heard about G&S’s reputation from local residents who have had dealings in the construction of custom homes. Based on the contract we signed, G&S came in exactly on budget with no cost overruns....

G & S Construction was recommended by our designer

Building a new home was not in our plans until we lost our home in the Angora fire in June of 2007. Among many decisions that had to be made was who we would choose to rebuild our home. Having lived in South Lake Tahoe for over 30 years we have come to know many people in the construction trade, but after talking with several of them we were still undecided. G & S Construction was recommended by our designer and we could not have made a wiser choice. Scott Noonan and Garrick Terrell have...

Good reputation for quality workmanship

We purchased our house when it was still in the process of being framed. There were some changes and additions that we wanted to make to the original plans. Garrick was able to give us an idea of what the changes would involve and what the costs would be in an accurate and timely manner. He was able to give us advice as to whether or not what we had in mind was a good idea or not. As construction continued and other concerns or questions arose, we found that Garrick was great at addressing...

Blended professionalism and personableness perfectly

Garrick with G&S Construction recently built our mom’s new home after the Tahoe fire. She’s in her 80’s and we needed a contractor we could trust. Garrick completed the house on time, on budget. He was helpful every step of the way. When we were in doubt, we found his taste in design, colors and material to be excellent. Garrick blended professionalism and personableness perfectly. He manage his sub-contractors, paper-work and codes with professionalism while he handle our mom with...

Garrick built our house as if it was his own

We had realized that taking on an imported timber-frame construction in South Lake Tahoe would not be straightforward; out of state engineering, unfamiliar construction techniques and inordinate levels of preparation had to be addressed. G&S Construction took up the challenge with a level of professionalism and enthusiasm that cannot be faulted. Garrick's team worked on nearly all aspects of the construction of what amounts to an unusual property for the Tahoe area. They undertook...

Finished ahead of schedule and on budget

We were fortunate to have Garrick Terrel as our contractor. He built our vacation home in South Lake Tahoe. Very professional and easy to communicate with. Worked as a team with our architect and designer. Exceeded our expectations. Finished ahead of schedule and on budget. We strongly recommend this contractor for future projects.

I was extremely impressed

This was the third home I have built, but my first time using G & S Construction.  I was extremely impressed with the professionalism, efficiency, and work ethic of this crew.  G & S began their work day at 7:30 am (already working at 7:30, not just setting up) and worked tirelessly through the day.  G & S’ attention to detail was impeccable, while also establishing themselves as the fastest crew I have ever hired.  The quality and craftsmanship of thier work was regularly...

By far the best contractor I have ever worked with

I love our new home in South Lake Tahoe. Garrick Terrell was by far the best contractor I have ever worked with. I started out with a list of about 10 contractors to build our getaway home. It was easy to choose simply after having a few telephone conversations. We do not live locally, so this was a risky venture for us. I handled the majority of the details and Garrick was always very respectful and never talked down to me or acted like I didn’t know what I was talking about. My husband...

We knew we found someone we could trust

Our South Lake Tahoe property on El Dorado Avenue has been in our family since the 1970’s and it has always been our dream to build a vacation home to enjoy.  After inheriting the meadow property in May of 2012 we were excited to begin the building process. We approached G&S Construction about building on our lot and were immediately impressed with Garrick Terrell’s professional attitude and astute knowledge of building in the Tahoe area. We submitted our house plans to him for a bid and...

No games

I had family property passed down from 1951 in South Lake Tahoe. The time was right for me to build and I called 4 contractors and decided on Garrick and G & S Construction. He was very patient in answering my questions that first call as well as upfront and direct. No games. Right there I felt he was the guy to build. And that was the best choice I made for my house. He guided me the whole way from blueprints to permits to banks to materials and design modifications and selections on...
