A Word From Others We Have Helped

After we lost our home to the Tea Fire Don Gragg was a tremendous help to us.  Don listened to what we wanted and to what we needed and helped us make the best decisions in the rebuild process. Don knows the permitting process and told us what to expect. He prepared us for the rebuilding process and came to every Architectural Board of Review meeting with us. If there were ever problems with the city and the rebuilding process he took care of those problems in a timely manner and insulated us from the politics of the rebuild. He helped us resolved issues with the fire department and its new requirements for rebuilds after the fire. Don’s design input was invaluable in making our kitchen island exactly what we needed. We found Don Gragg to be an outstanding resource.

Seth and Barbara Olitzky

We know first-hand what it’s like to have lost our home and cherished belongings as a result of the tea fire nine years ago. Don graag was instrumtal in helping to get our family’s lives back together. His compassion and expertise in planning and designing our beautiful new home was done in a professional and speedy manner. We would highly recommend Don to anyone who has gone through our experience.

Ray and Rosemary Pelli

After our house burned to the ground in the Tea Fire, we hired Don Gragg and his crew at Santa Barbara Design and Build to rebuild with us. We were impressed with all of Don’s design ideas, it seems he knew exactly what we were looking for. We were so pleased with the results of the main house that we went on to build another beautiful structure ( a studio) on the property. One of the best aspects about how Don runs the job is that he takes care of everything.

There is no need for the owner to try to communicate with the city re: permits, which can be a complicated process. Don knows the City’s language, is patient with them, and takes care of the permitting nightmare for his clients.

We definitely recommend Don Gragg if you are considering hiring a designer/builder/contractor.
