Jeff Nott was born in South Pasadena, California. At the age of 10 he was building forts and skateboard ramps. By the time he was 14 he took summer jobs working with builders in Pasadena.

Jeff attended UC Santa Barbara, then returned to Los Angeles and began working with noted builders throughout the Los Angeles area . During this time he gained vast experience in all areas of design and construction. While working in the Pasadena area Jeff learned about the importance of keeping the detail and character of historical homes as much as possible. He worked with architects who were well informed about the history of these homes.

He applies this knowledge today to his projects, by maintaining appropriate standards and incorporating todays’ current lifestyle needs. His years of experience allow him the ability to enter a house and determine solutions quickly and cost effectively.

Jeff’s team includes trained carpenters, skilled subcontractors, and the services of an “in house” Interior Designer who specializes in kitchen and bath design. Whether it is a whole house remodel or one room, Jeff Nott will create the home which the whole family will enjoy.
