We’re very grateful to Jeff and his team for converting our 1960s pool cabaña into a beautiful pool/guest house (ADU). Nott did all of the design, secured the necessary city permits, and managed every detail of the construction process. We appreciated the fact that Jeff (and, for many years, his father) has been part of the local South Pasadena community, and he understands the city’s requirements inside and out, which is no easy task. Jeff is trustworthy–a family man who keeps his word–and a pleasure to deal with.

We were pretty meticulous about certain design elements, and Jeff and his team were very responsive and patient in terms of making any required modifications to get things just right. Also, his background in carpentry was a real attribute in terms of the beautifully customized woodwork for the ceilings, floors, and cabinetry.

Kudos to Alex Weber, who was integral to the day-to-day management of the project, including the sequencing of subs and helping us with the design elements and decisions regarding appliances, paint, etc. In fact, the entire Nott team was very professional and courteous throughout, despite the fact that the Covid-19 pandemic posed enormous challenges, including repeated work stoppages, protracted delays on the part of key suppliers, higher material costs, etc.

Would we have chosen to undertake a major project during the pandemic? Of course not–it took much longer and was much more expensive than we had anticipated, but we chalk that up to unlucky timing, yet Jeff kept in constant communication throughout. In the end, we couldn’t be more delighted by the end result–we are thoroughly enjoying our pool/guest house.
