“Mike and his crew were simply excellent to work with and I couldn’t be happier with the job they did. I had a somewhat unique construction need where I wanted to do much of the work on a home addition myself and on my timeline but needed professional help for some of the more involved and consequential tasks. Mike was very willing to work with me and accommodate my desires. When unexpected issues arose, as they always do with a renovation, Mike and his crew identified creative solutions and then worked with me to determine which one best suited my needs. Extremely knowledgeable, professional, and competent, yet always willing to learn from and investigate new options, Mike was a true pleasure to work with. Plus, everyone I interacted with at Straight Ahead Construction were genuinely nice people… exactly the type of folks I look forward to doing business with again. I couldn’t recommend them more highly.”

Testimonial for Fairbanks Alaska General Contractor
Like many cabins and homes in Fairbanks built by rushed homeowners, attention to the foundation detail was lacking on this one. Attention owner/ builders: when your friend’s advice is to take your time and do your foundation correctly do it!
The problem here was many fold. Each length of bean were three separate pieces poorly tied together with small nail plates on one side. The floor joists were not continuous either and butted together on the center beam underneath which adds to the complexity of replacing the beam.
We took steel I beams and prepped them for placement underneath.
I beams were placed on cribs we built underneath.

Bathrooms are difficult to photograph without a doubt. The main issue in this bathroom was freezing supply lines to the sink and shower and a poor layout.
And really, really, really ##$#%!#$ wiring.
I made a 9′ counter that has ~6′ of open space between the sink and washer and dryer. Perfect for diaper changing and folding clothes with storage below.
We also vapor barriered the old wall and built a 2×4 wet wall inside the exterior wall which now holds the breaker box in plane with the wall (see above for old set up) and gives us a place to run supply lines inside the vapor barrier.
Shop set up outside.
Again, not easy to photograph but you can see the new layout improves use of space.
Note: Our bathroom remodels do include bathroom sinks, I just did not get a photo bc Monkeywrench Mechanical came and installed it after we left.

Lets start in the kitchen looking out the window into the new addition…
Window is out, wall is gone, I beam is prepped…gooooin’ up.
We’ll come back and finish up once the sheetrock is painted and dry. Looking forward to finshing the grand island and trimming it out.

This 5′ X 6’10 3/4″ bathroom turned out really nice considering how it started. See for yourself!
No point in posting before photos because they really don’t even look remotely the same mostly due to the nice color choices.
