Just a note to recommend... BOTTOM LINE BUILDERS of Monterey. They did a wonderful job on the repair and renovation of our home (rebuilding exterior and interior walls, vaulting ceilings, removing of a dormer, creating custom closets, painting, building beams, etc.). They were polite, kept to themselves, worked well around us living in the home during the renovation, and their price was fair. Could not recommend the team enough! — Kate & Brian
