We have enjoyed our relationship with Mike Barnard Construction, both in the building of our home as well as Mike’s continuing attention to details and questions. We purchased a lot here in Bodega Harbour, then began the process of choosing a contractor. We were confident we chose the best with Barnard Construction, and time has proven that to be correct. We have constructed, and remodeled, several homes and no other contractor has promised, delivered and followed-up with the degree of thoroughness we’ve enjoyed with Mike. The home is now over three years old and all elements are functioning perfectly. Mike’s attention to detail is unsurpassed; his immediate response to any questions or issues that come up insures our continuing satisfaction.
Barnard Construction built our home in Bodega Harbour in 2005/2006. This is the only home we have built and we were anxious because of the horror stories we had heard from several of our friends who had built custom homes. However, we could not have been more pleased, building our home was a wonderful experience because of Mike Barnard’s professionalism, attention to detail and unimpeachable character.
The quality of the materials and workmanship exceeded our expectations. Mike was not only on budget but ahead of schedule, a virtually unheard of accomplishment in Bodega’s always unpredictable and often miserable weather. We live 525 miles away from Bodega, and during construction we were not able to oversee the project. Mike steadfastly chronicled the progress on the home, sending us photos and regular e-mails. With Mike’s updates, we were able to stay on top of the myriad design, material, fixture and appliance decisions we needed to make. The only surprises we encountered were happy ones! We love our house!

Mike Barnard is the most organized and efficient contractor that I have worked with in my thirty-five years of being an architect. He will be very dedicated to your project, so that it will be the BEST that it can be.

Clarity, responsiveness and professionalism: these attributes sum up our experience with Mike Barnard and Barnard Construction. We were on plan, on schedule and on budget for an extensive remodel & addition (even with a few, "Can we fit this in Mike?" requests that we made along the way). Three years later we love our home and continue to enjoy the relationship we have with Mike and Barnard Construction. We hold Mike and his crews in the highest professional regard and recommend them without reservation.
I would also like to express my appreciation for the work that you did for Denise and I on our home at 20633 Heron Drive, in Bodega Bay. This was a complete rebuild of our home. You maintained a tight schedule which was routinely updated. Your employees conduct themselves in a professional manner and your attention to details and quality is the best I have ever seen. Denise and I appreciate your professionalism and work ethic every time we walk through our front door of our perfect home.
My experience with Barnard Construction was one of timeliness, quality and kept promises. We had a tight schedule and specific budget, both of which Mike came through on. I was extremely happy with the process and the final result - Mike took on all the issues presented and worked through them with our interior designer.
I would like to provide my highest recommendation for anyone considering to use Barnard Construction for their construction project

As a Structural Consultant practicing in Marin and Sonoma Counties for thirty years I have worked with a many contractors and none were better, more efficient or more professional than Mike Barnard. Also, it was a pleasure working with Mike's crew. One hopes that one's contractor's crew will work with diligence and efficiency, which they certainly did, plus they all seem to be really nice people. Another plus that my wife noted is that that they all seem to get along well with each other.
