If you are thinking about building a home or adding on to your existing home, I am pleased to share our experience working with Alan Ficarra, builder. We engaged Alan to build a tower on our home at 664 Forest Street (Life is Good) in the Seaside community. The work required Alan’s construction team to demolish the existing tower and build a new one that was much different and better than the former tower.

We were very particular about the quality and craftsmanship of the work. Alan’s team  demonstrated attention to detail, which included crafting the special trim we wanted incorporated in the tower to match the trim on the front of the house. He used special brackets to adhere the roof to the tower given the new building codes and camouflaged the brackets so they aren’t visible, providing an aesthetically pleasing look. We asked him to research new products that would age better with the climate so that we weren’t rebuilding sooner than we’d like and he provided to us the option of using Ipe wood that is tongue and groove at a great price for our deck, which will extend the life of the decking.
