"Our experience in working with Dan and his team was stellar."
"We worked with Dan Fraiman Construction on a new construction in Squaw Valley. Our experience in working with Dan and his team was stellar. Truly outstanding project delivery and quality of execution.
Our project was a tear down of a 60 year old existing house, extensive excavation on a steep slope and the building of a new house with 5 BR. Three core areas of distinctiveness for Dan and team:
1) Hitting project budgets: Dan and team came right on budget on all the line items of the entire bid. On the allowances, Dan had always a great set of ideas to provide us real alternatives for us to trade off
2) Great communications and project management: We are living in the Bay Area and it was great to work with Dan remotely. He was on top of all the open items and it was extremely easy to communicate via email/text/pictures on the choices that we had to make
3) Quality of execution: Every single element of the house was done superbly. Dan's model of working with the best sub-contractors is unbeatable. This way he can secure great quality, but also take benefit of a competitive sourcing of suppliers. And he and his foreman are super on top of all the work.
Overall, we think Dan is a very distinctive contractor in the Tahoe Area and we highly recommend him for anyone that tries to execute a larger project in the Sierra."
"He came in on time and under budget but more than that, the house is beautiful and he was a pleasure to work with."
"Working with Daniel Fraiman Construction was an extremely positive experience. We asked Dan to take over our project that had been started by someone else. He was able to pick up the job in mid-stream and bring it to completion. His communication, quality of work, timeliness and expertise resulted in an extremely satisfied customer. He came in on time and under budget but more than that, the house is beautiful and he was a pleasure to work with. Dan is a true professional. He delivered exactly what he promised with superb attention to detail. Dan’s crew was also reliable and experienced. I highly recommend Daniel Fraiman Construction."

"The quality of work was outstanding exceeding all our expectations!"
"Dan & his team were great to work with. We did a significant remodel and addition in 2012 and have done a couple of smaller projects with Dan since. Dan was great at communicating project status, giving us creative ideas and meeting schedules. The quality of work was outstanding exceeding all our expectations! We had a mountain cabin; now we have a beautiful mountain home! An outstanding first class experience."
Richard & Susan
"We unequivocally recommend Daniel Fraiman Construction."
"We have been vacation home owners at Lake Tahoe for over 25 years and have remodeled several times. Last year (2015) we hired Daniel Fraiman to construct our most extensive remodel yet. The work included excavation and finishing of a basement storage area, complete remodel of three bathrooms, reconfiguration of a master bedroom, replacement of mechanical equipment, and other structural and cosmetic work.
In all respects, Daniel’s work was of the highest quality. He provided professional assistance in project design, working with design professionals regarding structural requirements, choosing materials, coordinating the trades, and assuring proper construction of what we wanted. His pricing was reasonable and of excellent value.
In addition, he has been a delight to work with: he has been always promptly responsive and efficient. We unequivocally recommend Daniel Fraiman Construction."
"He cared about our budget, our interests, our time-line and ultimately, our family."
"We started with Dan over four years ago and now have two-plus finished projects under his careful guidance, both with wonderful outcomes. The first one was a complete "gut" of a big, out-of-date, very boring house in Squaw Valley and the second was a broad remodel of a classic 1960's A-frame with an un-retouched interior in Alpine Meadows.
Although the two projects were very different in scope, feel and design, Dan got it right both times. He has an unerring eye for quality and more importantly, for the artistic. I have spoken many times to him about getting rid of the "uglies" and he always knows what I mean. At the end of his work, there was no "ugly" left in either house -- both are lovely, graceful and have an undefinable mountain spirit that our whole family enjoys.
Dan is a nice guy -- easy to talk to and a respectful listener. He cared about our budget, our interests, our time-line and ultimately, our family.
Our long term plan is to retire to magical Tahoe and build a house exactly how we want it! We are looking for a property but we don't need to look for a contractor. I recommend Dan Fraiman with the utmost confidence. Please feel free to contact me personally with any questions."
"Dan did a spectacular job with the remodel of our Tahoe home."
"We live in the Bay Area (Marin) and purchased our home on the west shore in November of 2012. Before we closed I spoke to Dan about doing a fairly extensive remodel of our vacation home. Dan gave me his first bid in early November with an updated version later that month before we closed. I probably made five or six revisions to the plans and interviewed and received bids from two other contractors.
We ultimately made the decision to work with Dan. Here are some thoughts/reasons:
Patience - Throughout that process Dan was very patient while I decided what I wanted to do and whom I wanted to do it with. With every change in plans he gave me a bid and wasn't frustrated as I came to the right decision for me.
Quality - I visited a home he was finishing. The work was of high quality. He clearly had contacts with subcontractors that do nice work. We also visited his house which he was completing and the work was well done.
Decision Making - As I previously mentioned I live in the Bay Area. I travel quite a bit. My wife is busy with three young children. We didn’t have time to make decisions and watch the progress on the project closely. After talking to others that have worked with Dan and discussing with him I felt confident I could ask him to use his best judgment to make decisions when we weren't available to weigh in.
Timing/Honesty - I asked him many times how long it would take to complete the project. I tried to press him to complete the project sooner than originally indicated. Rather than moving his timeline in he stayed consistent that it would take 4 months to complete.
He was not the cheapest but after taking my time to make a decision I wish I would have chosen Dan five months prior.
Outcome: Dan did a spectacular job with the remodel of our Tahoe home. His ability to deliver extremely high quality subs on schedule was very helpful to keeping our project on time. Where appropriate Dan made decisions and provided suggestions that were ultimately helpful. There were suggestions that I didn’t take him up on and looking back I was foolish to not do so.
It has been over two years since the work was completed and we are still happy with the finished product. To the extent we have questions or need help to this day Dan is always easy to reach and very helpful when he can be. I highly recommend working with Fraiman Construction!"
