“It literally felt like all of the stars and planets aligned when we were finally able to connect with Straight Ahead Construction last summer. We had a vision. Due to popular demand for a second location closer to the downtown Fairbanks area, we found a great spot and were ready to start renovating. Soon, it felt like all we had was our vision. Our first rookie mistake was to act as our own General Contractor.
We happened to see a link to SAC on Facebook and fell in love with all of the work Mike & Company does! I immediately emailed him, and while he did write back right away, he was unfortunately booked up for the summer. Another rookie thought to think a contractor with such skill and talent would be available at the drop of an email. As the summer wore on, we were at a standstill with literally no one returning our calls or able to help us. Then, we got a call out of the blue; Mike was ahead of schedule and had some time and wanted to know if we still needed some work done.
He came over and, within very short order, we had a quote which was very fair and a schedule to work with. Mike had so many ideas to address things we hadn’t considered, all with the idea of a high quality end product that didn’t require us to take out a second on the house. He was professional and really took to heart what we wanted to present. The result was a beautiful laminate counter with Alaska birch trim that we consider the focus of our new shop. We continue to consult SAC for advice on continuing renovations. Our continuing dream is that our business grows large enough that we can retain SAC exclusively and build all over the world. Or at least Alaska.
