When I saw many of Dan Cooper's home designs that I liked so much, I contacted him to help me with my new home's exterior design. Dan gave me an excellent consultation and beautiful ideas. Can't wait to post the results! I think Dan is very talented and creative.


My husband and I bought a 70's contemporary home with a fabulous view but definite need of updating. We had known Dan for years and were excited to work with him and his team. We had admired his work for years. The project was more than any of us had bargained for, much bigger remodel than expected. I had a more traditional style which did not fit with the house, and Dan really had a vision for what was going to make this house tick and he really kept us on track, bringing all of our visions together, it was a tug of war at times, but he kept pushing forward. "Transitional" was what we called it, and he and his team, truly helped make it all mesh and turn out wonderfully, keeping my need for a homey warm feel but incorporating the new contemporary lines. We love our new home, are grateful for the vision that DC Homes had to make it all come together. They were truly invested and it shows in the finished product. They took care of every detail. Happy Home Owners!!

My husband and I found DC on houzz when we were looking for a reputable builder to build our contemporary home. In the first phone call, Dan said his job was a labor of love to him, throughout our project, he lived up to his words. He and his team designed and built a beautiful house for us that literally stops the traffic in the neighborhood. We were not the easiest clients to work with. I was very particular on every little detail and my husband watched the budget very closely. Dan managed to keep both of us happy. To the homeowners, building a house is a lot like a roller coaster ride. We were very fortunate to have Dan holding our hands through this process.


My husband and I hired dC Fine Homes for a major kitchen remodel that was completed in December of 2014. (reconfigured the layout, new countertops, floors, cabinets and appliances, removed walls, added built-in seating, new island, etc.) Having never done any sort of renovation, Alicia and Dan did a great job of helping us understand the whole process and what we could expect from a timeline and execution standpoint. We had a very clear vision of what we wanted the look and feel to be, and Alicia was able to lead us toward materials that would not only match the look but match our budget as well. The end result is absolutely gorgeous and we couldn't be happier.


What can I say...Dan Cooper, his amazing staff and design team are the best in the business! My husband and I worked with Dan to design our forever home and he really listened to what we were looking for and took in to account our budget and the type of materials we wanted in our house. Throughout the process he was very responsive and professional. I admit I am not the easiest person to please and I have a LOT of questions, but Dan was always willing to take the time to explain everything to me. His construction staff pays attention to every detail and the house turned out amazing. His design team did all the work for me, and made the process so easy. All the materials used in our house look amazing! Thanks again dC Fine Homes! You can see photos of our beautiful home "Artistry" on dc Fine Homes website or here on Houzz.


I recently worked with this Company on a Master Bath remodel. They were great to work with, had wonderful ideas, and the finished product exceeded my expectations.


Our remodel process with dC Fine Homes was FAR superior to any previous remodel. Our kitchen project was no simple one, but the professional, courteous and detail oriented staff made the project flow almost seamlessly! From design to final walk through, we felt our dreams, budget and personal space were respected. Thank you to Dan and Alicia for your design skills, knowledge.


My wife and I truly enjoyed our experience working with Dan and the entire DC Fine Homes team. Dan is a consummate professional in everything he does, and we were amazed at his depth of knowledge in every aspect of the project from the materials to the design and construction process. We were happy to have someone as detail oriented as we are to make sure every nuance was thought about. We love our new home and thank Dan for making it a reality for us.


Dan Cooper designed and built a truly amazing house for us. He was exceptionally accessible, professional and creative every step of the way. I very highly recommend him to anyone interested in building a new home!


I cannot say enough good things about Dan Cooper and DC Fine Homes. They do beautiful work and have exceptional customer service ... a true class act.


Dan and his crew were wonderful to work with. They made a stressful endeavour fun. They worked to make our house feel special and unique while continually being mindful of our budget.

Dan's design suggestions were creative and innovative while also being practical for our family. Dan was easy to get ahold of when we had questions and was always willing to listen to our concerns and answer our questions. He really seemed to care about our home and how we would live in it.

Our home turned out beautifully. Somehow, Dan built the home I had pictured in my mind. Now that we've moved in, we miss seeing him and his crew everyday!

Dan Cooper's work is stunning! We followed his designs for close to 3 years before finally purchasing a lot. He listens, responds to suggestions and can create both practical and creative design elements. He can manage multiple tasks, understands both construction and design while also working with a huge variety of subcontractors in a professional manner. He helped us create a budget we can live with. Our home should be finished by early April and we can't wait.


We were looking for a builder with a strong sense of creativity and design. Dan and his crew at DC Fine homes did not disappoint us. They led us from the initial design process thru the completion of our home with patience and professional design guidance to give us a beautiful, unique home.

DC Design did a wonderful job designing and building our home. It was our dream home when we started and it still is after four and a half years in the home! Dan is very knowledgeable and a great designer. He had great ideas that transformed our plans into a beautiful home. We are very happy with the final result.


It seems "thank you" isn't quite enough. It's hard to put into words how grateful we are for the amazing home you have created for us. In fact, it's hard to believe it's really ours! We recognize how much effort went into making every detail perfect. You are so good at what you do and we couldn't have imagined going through this process with anyone else. We feel so fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with you and to develop a friendship we will cherish forever. Thank you both for the long days, sleepless nights, and for the heart and soul you poured into our project. We can't begin to describe how good it feels to call this place home!


DC Fine Homes did an amazing job on our house from initial design all the way through the actual craftsmanship and work.

They were a pleasure to work with and were extremely helpful through every step of the process.

Highly recommended.
