Building a custom home is an exciting yet complicated endeavor. Even the finest architects cannot capture all of the details involved, and there are always unforeseen issues. The builder can make all the difference in whether these issues become opportunities or problems. I wanted a builder I could absolutely trust who would build the highest quality house at reasonable cost and speed. Rick Jeffrey is doing just that. He takes responsibility for the quality of the outcome and effectively navigates the architectural and engineering challenges so that the end product, my home, is even better than what was conceptualized on paper. We’ve spent tons of time together over the past year, and now not only is he my builder but also my friend. One of the core values of my family is integrity, and I am pleased to advocate for Rick because we share this value, and he is an outstanding builder and community member.

Rick and his craftsmen completely remodeled our home. They added 1600 Sq. ft., changed the style to Craftsman, altered the roofline, and moved the kitchen to the addition with totally new appliances. All baths were replaced. They installed new furnaces and ductwork, increased the electrical and water supply capacity, water heaters.
Perfection/precision were paramount and while style matched function, neither were compromised. Perhaps most important was that Rick and his crew were there each and every work day without fail, the work was completed as promised and as budgeted.

Hi Rick & Blaine,
I am on vacation in Alaska right now with Laura but didn’t want to
miss an opportunity to send you a LETTER OF RECOMMENDATION for the
excellent work that Beach Front Construction did for us at 3015 Calle
Working with you two and your team along with A&B Design made our job
of expanding Ruth’s house a pleasure. Now that she is
elderly……all of the handholding that you guys did with us and also
with Ruth meant so much to us to be able to get in there….get the
job done quickly, efficiently and end up with a vastly improved
house for my mother-in-law.
Additionally…..when getting into the project we appreciated so much
all of your recommendations for changes that seem to make a lot of
sense once the demolition and construction started. You guys along
with Josh Blummer made the changes so easy and always kept us abreast
of what was coming up next and what was going to be required of us and
the many, many decisions that had to be made a long the way.
Now that Ruth is enjoying the remodeled house and all the extra
updated space…..we can’t thank you enough for all that you did while
on the job everyday and the end result she gets to enjoy each and
I would be happy to recommend you to any potential clients in the
future and would welcome talking with them directly if that is also
Bryan & Laura Uhrig

Rick Jeffrey’s company, Beach Front Construction, completed an essentially new construction project for me necessitated by an extensive house fire that occurred in November of 2007. A close friend, Glenn Scott, recommended Rick to me. The job entailed a partial demolition, grading, site preparation and construction of a 5000 sft. home, driveway, retaining walls, new water lines, decks and patios. Rick’s bid was somewhat below others I received and the optional items in the bid were, in most cases close to Rick’s estimate. The quality of the project was top notch and Rick managed his resources to complete the project in about 10 months. Rick was able to effectively work with my architect Jim Bell as well as the county inspectors. Rick introduced me to a banker who provided me with a construction loan. If anyone would want more information about my project, feel free to call.
