About the owner

Hi, my name is Alexander Pell. I  started my career in construction 20 years ago,  building straw bale homes in Colorado.  Being a highly niche type of construction, I moved away from straw bale homes and move to conventional building.  In 2008 I moved to California, to attend a 6 month internship natural building program.  I learned a variety of natural building systems, and have since been passionate about incorporating these techniques in my projects when possible.  From 2011-2014 I was a project foreman for a general contractor in San Francisco.  I briefly worked for myself from 2014-2015 doing repairs and small jobs which was a great learning experience.  During that time I was awarded “Best Handyman in the East Bay”, by Thumbtack (an online platform connecting professionals to clients).  In late 2015, an amazing opportunity arose to be a foreman for FB Design Build in Berkeley.  I managed projects ranging from small remodels to full house remodels.  After two years I left on great terms,  after realizing I was ready to go out on my own.  I acquired my General B Contractors License in early 2018.
