Working with Ohana has been a fabulous experience! From the estimate through completion, they have provided excellent service. top quality work and fantastic responsiveness.
I had been getting quotes on my bathroom remodel for about a year some were really inexpensive some were crazy expensive. None of the previous quotes showed any imagination in how to work with my tiny space so I was reluctant to pull the trigger. When Ryan from Ohana came in to look at it, he suggested putting in a heated floor when I said I wanted to remove the radiator for more space. He cautioned me along the way and even made sure that I understood how the cost of adding the heated floor would affect my total. So I knew he wasn’t just looking to bump up my budget. Because the bathroom is so tiny, it made sense. Maggie, the other half of Ohana was equally awesome. She came along when I chose fixtures and when I (of course) chose all top dollar items, she found budget friendly options that still fit my aesthetic. Ohana’s designer, Jaimie, is also fantastic. Both she and Maggie, took the time to understand my taste and have been able to provide suggestions to fit my style and my budget. What I think is also telling is that everyone who has come in to work on my bathroom, from tiling to electrical to plumbing has been incredibly personable and respectful of my house and my pets. I was very worried that someone would inadvertently let my cats out so on the info sheet for workers that Ohana placed in my foyer, it was typed in large old font that there were two cats and two dogs in the house and that workers should be careful not to let any animals out. I really appreciated that. In the end, my bathroom is absolutely gorgeous. Worth every penny!
Now that I’m onto kitchen renovation, I am going to work with Ohana on that project as well. I did get bids from other contractors to be sure but seeing how fantastic Ohana is to work with, even (slightly) lower bids were no competition. I know Ohana will not throw me any budget curveballs. They are straightforward, honest and do top quality work. You won’t find a better contractor in the Twin Cities.H. Simonson, St. Paul Bathroom Remodel
Complete Bathroom remodel, including steam shower, Kitchen upgrade (countertops, backsplash, and vent hood), and interior painting of residence. The project started in early June 2014 and was completed late September 2014. The initial presentation of the project, its scope, and its organization were key reasons for engaging Ohana. The Design input and selection of materials and fixtures was extremely helpful. Issues encountered during the project were clearly communicated and promptly addressed. All subcontractors were professional and courteous. The project was completed within budget. We are very satisfied with the final outcome and really pleased with the ‘new look’ to our home.C. Allingham, Eden Prairie Kitchen and Bathroom Remodel
This was a huge job. Ryan ripped out our kitchen down to the studs and started over. Their design capabilities are fantastic, yet they happily submitted to our own choices on the few occasions that we had other ideas. As part of the project, our entire HVAC system and water heaters needed to be replaced, and all was handled flawlessly by Ohana. They could not have been more attentive, meeting us at showrooms, bringing samples, incorporating our ever-changing plan. We hit them with all kinds of changes and small adjustments and never got any resistance or attitude. This was a first for me. Do not hesitate to hire Ohana for any construction you’re considering.J. Denton, Chanhassen Kitchen Remodel
From the start Ryan, Maggie and everyone at Ohana was great. Ryan came looked at the bathroom, asked questions about what we wanted done. He came back a few days later with the bid. Ryan took the time to explain everything in the proposal and what Ohana would do. The bid was competitive with the other companies we had out for proposals.
We were not sure what we wanted for colors or designs. Maggie and Jaimie were great going with us to various stores to help pick things out. They gave good information on various items, upkeep etc. Really helped us narrow down our decisions. Maggie came up with several different tile designs for both the floor and the tub wall. She again explained to us why something may or may not work.
All of the workers were very nice, cleaned up. Worked around our schedule when we had a conflict, nice to our dog. 🙂
Loved the work they did very professional and friendly. When it is time for our next remodel we will be calling Ohana.
We’ve used Ohana in the past to install a new deck. They were amazing then, and amazing now. Maggie and Ryan seem like family to us, and I think it’s because they make you feel as important as a family member. They truly care about their customers. From start to finish the kitchen remodel went extremely well, and we never lost a minutes sleep with worry. Above and beyond our expectations. They made sure we had everything we needed to be comfortable during that time and responded to all questions, any request, issues, everything quickly and professionally. I can honestly say if we need any further construction needs, I will not contact anyone else. We HIGHLY recommend Ohana. They are the best!!S. Platt, Apple Valley Kitchen Remodel
I am a professional flooring contractor that has worked with Ohana Construction on many of their projects. Thier personal attention to their clients needs as well as their sub contractors is second to none. They work hands on during the entire process from start to finish. I highly recommend Ohana Construction for any of your remodeling needs.G. Glehn, Above All Hardwood Flooring
I’ve worked with a number of contractors over the past year, and Ohana Construction was by far the best. Ryan and Maggie gutted and redid a bathroom on the third floor of my 1880’s condo. Their bid was in the same range as the others I received on the project, and they did a fantastic job throughout the process, from helping me choose materials when I was indecisive to helping evaluate some unexpected problems with the structure of the building we discovered during demo.
The subcontractors were generally polite and did not make any more mess than was necessary under the circumstances. Ohana maintained an online calendar showing when each subcontractor would be there, which I found helpful.
Ryan and Maggie always responded to phone calls or e-mails within a business day. I found them responsive and easy to work with, and the finished product looks great.
The project was well conceived and subsequently amended with the addition of water damage (sump pump failure) to the lower level. The input provided by Ohana’s Design Team was a great complement to the overall satisfaction of the project. Issues encountered were promptly communicated and resolved with dispatch. We are very satisfied with the outcome and wouldn’t hesitate to engage Ohana again.D. Allingham, Eden Prairie Master Bathroom Remodel
It was excellent. They had a decorator to help us pick out paint and countertops, etc. Their suggestions were great. They were really good. If anything came up, we just called and they were here immediately to fix it. Everything was very detailed. They gave me a book and I could go online to check the schedule and see when the contractors were coming. Communication is excellent and they are very organized. I am really enjoying the project now that it’s done.S. Zwickey, Chanhassen Bathroom & Laundry Room Remodel
Ryan was able to quickly understand what we wanted on the initial visit and clearly communicated their proposal on the 2nd visit. It was more money than we were hoping to spend but was within the range of other bids we received. We decided to move forward with Ohana because Ryan seemed very honest and engaged in our questions in contrast to other contractors where it was clear you were dealing with a salesman. We were able to save some money by doing the demo and painting ourselves.
The design process was great! Maggie struck the right balance between taking our input and offering their expert opinion. They were conscious to our desire to save money when possible, but ensured that we would be happy with the end result.
During construction phase we ran into a few bumps including hidden surprises behind walls/soffits, issues with the grout, flooring not matching sample, appliance issues, and plumbing delays. Ryan handled most of these issues quickly and to our satisfaction. Some of the issues did drag on longer than we would have liked and we have to question their choice in plumbing subcontractor.
Overall we feel that we got what we paid for and we absolutely love the finished product! We would recommend them to our friends and family without question.S. Keninger, Burnsville Kitchen Remodel
We felt that both Ryan and Maggie listened to us versus following some preconceived idea and they were very sensitive to our schedule, budget, and design goals. Our favorite parts of working with Ohana were their responsiveness, accommodation, and design guidance. We really appreciated the “extra mile” that both Ryan and Maggie traveled.
As much as getting the “heart” of our home ripped up can be…it was fun. We’re thinking of some additional work in a year or so, and Ryan & Maggie will be our first call.D. Hughes, South Minneapolis Kitchen, Fireplace & Basement Bar remodel
Ohana did a complete kitchen remodel for us. We had a fantastic experience. They were very tactful in helping us select the right layout, materials, and finishes. They let us make the original selections and, upon our request, gave us suggestions to improve our selections. Many times they found materials that looked better, but were less expensive than our choices. Their subcontractors were some of the best I’ve ever worked with; very professional and courteous.
The attention to schedule and finish was a top priority with Ryan and Maggie. They were very insistent with the contractors that they needed to honor their commitments. I witnessed one situation where the electrician got a call to go take care of something on another job while working on my kitchen. Within five minutes, Ryan had the electrician back working on my kitchen.
Ohana helped us out with the inconvenience a kitchen remodel presents. We didn’t realize how hard it is to be without a kitchen for a couple of months. They loaned us a hotplate and a water dispenser that really made things easy. Another thing we didn’t realize is the dust that is generated in the process. They set up a HEPA filter air scrubber that did a great job of minimizing the dust.
It has been eight months now since the job was completed and we are still thrilled with the work that was done. Everyone that has seen the kitchen, has been very impressed with everything.M. Tenpas, Apple Valley Kitchen Remodel
