"Having built seven homes, I have dealt with a lot of contractors over the years, and can honestly say Kevin Konsmo is the best I have ever worked with. My last home was completed in May 2015 and Kevin built it. It was my first experience with him, but I hope not the last. Kevin is honest and good at organizing. He kept the job moving and got it done on time and on budget. The job site was kept neat and clean and the workers are nice guys, competent and considerate. Kevin was also considerate of the neighbors and kept them informed. He looked for better ways to do things and offered suggestions that improved the design and functioning. He made sure that the building materials were good quality and installation was done in a professional manner. Because most of the houses I have built are largely my design, I am very "hands on" and visited the job site almost daily. Kevin kept me informed and listened to me every step of the way. Many contractors are reluctant to try something new or different from the way they have always done it, because of the extra time and effort required. I wanted to include an elevator and, for fun, some "secret" doors, something none of us had ever done before. Kevin and his crew researched the best way to accomplish this and successfully built and installed them all. Many people have commented on the quality of construction of this house. Two examples stand out in my mind. During construction, the Building Inspector was taking a new trainee around and, although this house was not on his schedule that day, they came here because, he told the trainee, "I want to show you a house that is being done right." And in July 2016, this home was selected to be on the Tahoe Treasures Home Tour to raise scholarship funds. If you are planning to build a new home and choose Kevin Konsmo as your contractor, it will be one of the best decisions you make and you will be very happy with the results, as I am. "
"Kevin Konsmo has constructed two exceptionally high quality homes for me. The first completed in 1997, is 6,300 square feet, located on Sharps Circle in Reno, Nevada. The second home was completed in2006, is 9300 square feet, located at on Woodchuck Circle in Reno, Nevada. Kevin Konsmo is a very competent high-end contractor. He is honest, diligent, and reliable. Kevin always goes the extra mile to pay attention to every detail of the construction and costs of building the home. My personal plans include another home construction project in the future with Kevin. I would recommend Kevin to anyone for their home construction with the utmost confidence. Not only have we worked on two home construction projects in the last 13 years, we have also become life long great friends. I look forward to our next project."
"We were very fortunate to choose Kevin as our contractor to build our dream home. Everywhere we went to either choose materials or copy plans while we were building our house we would get the same comments from suppliers, 'Kevin is one of the best if not the best contractor in Reno'. They were right. Kevin is very detailed oriented and trustworthy. He builds a beautiful home in a very cost effective way. If we ever decide to build another home, we will definitely call Kevin first."

"After years of moving around and living in military housing, Jim and I wanted to build a home ~ one we had planned for over 25 years. We wanted to build a home we would never have to move from again! Not surprisingly a great deal of thought went into the process. Kevin was able to help us through the plan submissions, and plan revisions- so that we could have a house that truly fit us. It is a place to come home to. Quality and comfort every step of the way, but with a concern for affordability. We heard all kinds of horror stories about building a home, but thankfully they were just st ories. The process of building our house went smoothly- and I think, in a great part, it was due to Kevin's attention to detail. In the end we finished ahead of schedule and under budget- which was a bonus! If we ever decided to build again Kevin would be our choice in builders. He is easy to work with and listens to your concerns."

"During construction Kevin Konsmo provided numerous construction and cost saving ideas we never considered. Each day provides us with an obvious reminder that Kevin Konsmo has provided us a top notch quality home. Kevin kept us informed daily, his attention to detail and his efficiency is remarkable. Kevin is an extremely credible builder well qualified to provide quality built homes. The wife & I could not be happier even after six years living here."

"Kevin Konsmo is the most hands on, conscientious builder that we have ever worked with. He is open to new ideas and pays great attention to detail. We would highly recommend him to do any project from a large custom residential ground up house to a small remodel. We have worked on numerous high- end residential homes as well as many remodels over the years and have always been pleased with Kevin’s performance as well as his expertise. If a new client were to ask us for a recommendation for a builder we would not hesitate to recommend Kevin."

"Respect and pride of workmanship are the two admirable qualities that first come to mind when my husband and I think of Kevin Konsmo. He treated us with the utmost care and respect during our custom home building process. Our questions were answered thoroughly plus he would give us his thoughts to save money or a creative way to approach an impending issue. His constant attention to detail was amazing. He treated every aspect of our home just as if it were his. His workmanship and work ethics are beyond reproach! He kept a very clean job site and many times he jumped in to hammer nails or help with the finish work himself. He is a hands-on contractor, there everyday! Our experience with Kevin Konsmo has formed a friendship as well. How many homeowners can truly say that? As a real estate agent, many of my clients ask me who they should consider when it comes to quality construction. Without hesitation I refer Kevin Konsmo with the utmost confidence! We love to show off our home ~ we are so very proud of it ~ even after 17 years! Thanks Kevin, we love our home!"
