“Dan is wonderful to work with. Really, I can’t say enough good things about him. I was very nervous about doing a remodeling project in Tahoe while I couldn’t be there as we live in SF. Dan was on the job.. Ready to go and in touch regularly. I am used to the “on Tahoe time” mindset in Tahoe, but not Dan, he was on the job first thing daily. This was very important to us giving that we wanted to have this remodeling project done between ski season & summer. Despite the crazy architect I was working with, Dan quickly figured out a path to get the job done on time and saving $$ along the way. You won’t find a better contractor in Tahoe!! The quality of his work is superb- he is a master craftsmen.”

“Dan Sheehan of DS Construction was recommended to us for custom shelving we wanted built for our home. Dan did a fabulous job – he is a quality craftsman and paid attention to every detail. He also explained every step in the process, from timing to pricing, so that we knew exactly what to expect. Dan was also pleasure to work with – he checked in with us at every decision point and even advised on design options! The shelves are gorgeous, and I would recommend Dan to anyone!”

“Contacted Dan regarding a quote to install bear fencing after a second bear break-in within 6 months. I had previously contacted Bear Busters and the quote provided was very expensive and made me reconsider securing the cabin. I contacted the Bear League looking for additional recommendations to secure the cabin. The Bear League recommended DS Construction. Dan promptly responded to me and surveyed the job within a week. He was very knowledgeable and provided me with a reasonable quote. His work product is excellent and he is very professional. I was worried about the aesthetics of the electric fencing but Dan’s work exceeded my expectations. He clearly cares about saving the bears in Tahoe by keeping his prices reasonable so more homeowners can secure their homes. I highly recommend Dan for electric bear fencing.”

“When my family recently bought our dream home on the west shore of Lake Tahoe, we were fortunate to have Dan Sheehan by our side. He inspected the properties we were interested in so we could be sure we were buying a home with good bones.  Dan helped to answer questions for us throughout the process and came to our inspection to ensure that we were not buying a money pit! Since then, Dan has helped us on numerous projects, and will be our go to guy down the road when we are ready for a full remodel.  As a building professional myself, I know it pays to have the local knowledge of an experienced contractor more than anything else.  As an out of town owner who resides far from Tahoe, it’s reassuring to have a contractor with integrity to turn to.  Dan also has some great contacts in the Tahoe area for other jobs like snow removal… and he’s happy to provide the occasional snow report! We look forward to a long relationship with DS Construction and highly recommend them.” Chris Corrao



“I’m a vacation home owner and know how important it is to have a contractor you can rely on and trust when your out of the area.   Dan Sheehan with DS construction is knowledgeable, informative and does a quality job.   While my experience had to do with urgent repairs to flooring from water damage, I would use Dan for a significant remodel or repair. ”

“In 2007, we contracted with Dan to remodel our master bath and install a new front door. He did a magnificent job and we personally grew to be very fond of him. Our only regret is that we don’t have another bathroom to remodel. It was nice to have him around. We would not hesitate to use his services in the future.” Rich & Diana Michaels



“We have had a cabin in Homewood for 20 years and had never had a bear break in.
Early one morning, at home in the bay area, we received a call from a neighbor telling us that a bear had smashed our front window and wrecked havoc in our kitchen .
We were so fortunate to have found Dan on the web. He stepped up and was professional, economical and incredibly responsive in helping us deal with the situation and installing an electric fence after the bear was back less than 24 hours after the window was replaced.
We recommend him without hesitation. He is pleasure to work with.”  Lisa & David Kruse
