WE MAKE THINGS HAPPEN

Nearly two decades ago Daniel Fraiman began building custom luxury homes in Truckee-Tahoe driven by a passion for building custom mountain homes reflecting his client’s mountain lifestyle. Through diligence, loyalty, integrity, and a dedication to client relationships, Daniel Fraiman Construction grew from a one man operation into a diverse, dedicated team of local construction professionals. As experts in custom home, commercial, and modular construction, in addition to remodels and construction consulting, DFC has the expertise, vision, and team to complete your project on time and beyond expectations.

Daniel Fraiman

After more than two decades working in custom construction, Dan founded DFC in 2012 with a dedication to translating client dreams into quality, custom construction. Growing up in Alaska, Dan built homes alongside his father learning and refining the custom building craft, while becoming instilled with the foundational values for DFC: integrity, relationships, and a keen eye for detail in pursuit of quality craftsmanship. Initially attracted to Truckee by the mountain lifestyle, Dan is proud to call Truckee home for his business and family. When not onsite, he dedicates his time to family and community: hosting friends and family around the backyard firepit, camping with his kids in the mountains and desert, or hitting the trails on his mountain bike and skis.
