This custom house features curves and arcs, but no right angles. Framing the 4100 sq. ft. home was a challenge for a crew accustomed to making perfect 90-degree corners, but the plans called for curves—so they made perfect curves instead. The results are magnificent. “Our project was very complicated—this truly is a custom home. All of the corners are rounded and there are unique architectural details throughout. Slatter brought a lot of experience to the job and made cost-effective recommendations about enhancements and improvements. They certainly exceeded my high expectations and they stand behind their work. I was very satisfied with the process. Slatter wasn’t the lowest bidder, but I believe that you get what you pay for. Some of our friends have gone with the lowest bidder, and it’s always turned out badly. They’re a family-owned company that has a number of capable people at the top. I didn’t want to go with an operation that was based entirely on one guy, and we wanted a builder who understood how to work effectively in Santa Cruz”. Bob...

The owners planned to install a 2880 sq. ft. Linwood Custom Cedar Home on their property in Ben Lomond. Permitting and construction required the involvement of geologists, civil engineers, sanitarians, and soil engineers. “Getting anything built in Santa Cruz County is complicated, and we couldn’t have built this house without Mike Bethke. My grandparents bought this land back in the 1930’s and we had to make our way through a number of engineering reports and permits to get a house on the site. The whole process of removing trees, grading the site, putting in a septic system and getting permits took about two and a half years—and Michael helped us throughout the process. I trust the Slatter organization and am very pleased with the work they did. We bought a Linwood Custom Cedar Home and they customized it for this lot. There is real quality in all of the work that they do and I would recommend them without hesitation.” Kirk...

The homeowners wanted to preserve the original windows and time period details, which required careful work-arounds and a scrupulous attention to detail. In the family since it was built, the home is up to date and comfortable for this generation.

This job showcases the range of work Slatter Construction can perform on a residential job. The landowner hired Slatter to develop the lot infrastructure and build three homes on the site. The work included everything from initial grading, engineering work and development of the utility infrastructure to relations with neighbors adverse to the project, and finished on budget and within a tight timeline.

This project was a 3018 ft. remodel and addition that roughly doubled the size of the home. Slatter designed, permitted and built the project. We also helped the owner arrange funding and worked with the lending company to set up a schedule that would make the financing work. “Slatter offered a full array of services that were just outstanding. We drew out what we wanted on the back of a napkin, and they got the job done. They did research to see what we could build, then clearly laid out our options. They recommended an architect, as well as the soils engineer and geologist we needed to gain approval from the County. They tailored the construction plan to make it easier for us to get a mortgage. The project was finished on the day it was promised for the price we had agreed to and we moved in a week later This house is everything we ever wanted, the workmanship is top notch and there is not one thing we’re not happy with about the job. I don’t think many people can recommend a contractor without reservation, but my wife and I couldn’t be happier with the job they did.” Scott & Kathy Anderson...
