"After ten years of winning awards for one of the most prestigious advertising agencies in the country, I became known as one of the Goodby, Silverstein, and Partners pickiest art directors. People knew that if they worked with me, I would be working them hard and would be demanding top quality workmanship. I then went on to work on the award winning store design for Gymboree and realized that my true love lay with construction. 

I subsequently designed and remodeled three houses dealing with various contractors and sub-contractors over the years. Recently, my husband and I purchased our fourth house and asked G Family to help us “fluff up” a two bedroom one and a half bath house. Jon Grabham offered to be the foreman on what was meant to be a relatively small job. The scope of the project increased tremendously to a five bedroom, three bath, three story home complete with gourmet kitchen, wine cellar, we bar and built-in book cases in the master suite, as well as built-in entertainment center in the recreation room and a deluxe redwood deck. Jon single-handedly turned our little cottage into a castle. I have never met a more patient, intelligent, talented, honest, budget conscious, hard-working contractor in my life. Jon is more mature than people twice his age and can readily handle any problems that might arise. I cannot recommend him or G Family highly enough."  - Betsy Z.

"We worked with G Family, Inc on our construction project. The project was very successful and we had a good experience dealing with everyone from the office to the site crew workers. The company is very professional in all aspects of the building process, from planning stage to the final stage, the process was smooth, and the jobsite was clean and organized. The company has integrity, honesty, and high quality standards and we would recommend their services to anyone. " - Robert & Barbara J.

"Dave and Jon are great. I had a really complicated deck that needed replacing. I had 7 contractors look at it. The G family bid was not only up to a third cheaper than the others, they were also the most, creative, enthusiastic, and most pleasant. The whole job went very smoothly. Their workmanship was excellent. The job was finished well within the schedule. They went out of their way to ensure I was satisfied. All their crew were extremely pleasant even when it was windy and raining. I love our new deck. It was a real pleasure having them build for us. I first discovered them when I asked a Marin forum for some recommendations and three separate people sent me amazing rave reviews about G Family construction. The reviews were proven right." - ​Mark H.

"If I could give G Family six stars, I would. They have done several projects for us after being recommended by a friend, and their work is amazing. The crew is so talented, all super friendly (and have worked for the company for years--great employee loyalty), show up on time, get the work done on time and to the highest standards of quality, and they finish the job right away, without leaving you hanging for the last 10% like every other contractor we've ever worked with. They ask all the right questions and consult with you to make sure things get done just the way you are expecting, and they are always looking for ways to make a project better. When they leave a job site, it is immaculate, and if you have questions about anything, Dave will come out right away and check to make sure it gets put right. The kicker is that their prices are so reasonable, especially for the incredible quality of their work. I have no doubt we'll be working with G Family for many years as we get our old house brought up to modern standards slowly but surely. We get tons of compliments on all the work they've done already, and they make us look like we have more means than we actually do. Working with these guys will be one decision you will never regret!" -Danielle F.

"Dave Grabham and his crew did a spectacular job converting my funky two car garage into a beautiful art studio. Dave met with me several times what I needed. He was friendly and very thorough in helping me plan and design a perfect work and play space with French doors and skylights. He got me the best prices and stayed within my budget. I will definitely hire him again to remodel our bathrooms and kitchen. Dave is a great guy and all his crew are friendly and hardworking young men." -Susan L.
