"Travis and Yvette, the owners of Dog Star Enterprises, sat down with us and reviewed our paln for an attached porch, to discuss whether it was feasible. A few suggestions for minor changes were offered for structural purposes, and we were set. The work bedgan on time and, despite less-than-favorable weather conditions, was completed in less time than expected. The materials were a perfect match for the exterior of our home, and the work was....well, quite simple put, extraordinary craftsmanship. We are so pleased and have spent many hours enjoying this wonderful addition to our home. I am pleased to highly recommend Dog Star to turn your building/remodeling plans into beautiful reality."
"I met Travis & Yvette when they built my home in Sudden Valley.
Over the past 12+ years we have become not only business partners but friends as well. I would recommend Dog Star Construction to anyone looking for outstanding work at a fair price."

"We needed to have an addition built onto our house for my elderly
mother. We talked to another contractor and told him how we wanted it arranged & he didn’t want to do it that way because he didn’t like the way
it would flow. So a friend recommended that we talk to Travis and
when we explained what we wanted, his reply was that it was our house & we should have it the way we wanted it. He worked with us and drew up the plans. He gave us a bid & I must say that he actually stuck to the price quote that he gave us! We did add a few things that were not in the original bid, but that was on us, not him. Travis did such quality work, would not cut corners and finished the job in a timely manner. Yvette
was very helpful with choosing the finishing touches such as flooring, tile and fixtures. What a team! We are so happy with the addition, Mom is
very happy with her new home and everyone that comes to see it is amazed. Now we should have the other contractor come and see wha
t a great space we have and it flows perfectly. We would recommend
Dog Star Construction to anyone wanting a quality job by one of the most honest business men we have ever met."

"My wife and I purchased a home from Travis, which he had built in 2007. At the time of purchase, we were only purchasing the two completed floors. When we wanted to complete the bottom floor, we hired Travis to install two bedrooms, a bathroom, kitchenette, a
fireplace surrounded by cabinets, and hardwood floors. His
attention to details and being able to work with changes, as to the
scope of work, is excellent. He not only completed the work, but came
in on budget and on time. I would recommend Travis for any
upcoming projects that you have."

"We have owned a cabin in SV since 1984, it was approximately 960 sq. ft. We asked Travis @ Dog Star about the possibilities of an addition. Travis drew up a plan adding 1000 square feet to our
cabin. He was able to blend the old with the new so the two
halves blended seamlessly. We love the large kitchen where
our family gathers and the view from the windows brings the
natural beauty of the surrounding forest into our home. We would most definitely recommend Dog Star Construction in Sedro
Woolley to be your home remodeling contractors"

"In late 2010 my wife and I purchased a home in Sudden Valley built by Travis Bertram. We chose this home because of the excellent workmanship, unique designs, positive environmental features, as well as its aesthetic beauty. When we decided to add some features, Travis agreed to make the additions. The results equaled the same excellent workmanship of the original home, he completed the work on time and within budget, and he always presented a pleasant and professional demeanor. I would wholeheartedly endorse Travis for any kind of construction project."
"Our home was built in 2007 and we were able to have a lot of input on the design. Travis, from Dog Star Construction in Sedro Woolley, drew the plans to accommodate our requests for a large master bedroom and walk in closet with tons of built ins. The building site was excavated to take advantage or the best lake view. The garage was also custom designed with an oversized work area. The quality was wonderful down to the tiniest details. We definitely recommend Dog Star Construction for doing a great job. If you need someone who can design your home and then build it-Dog Star Construction is the company you should work with. An excellent job!"

"Travis, please feel free to quote us with comments on your performance with respect to the work recently accomplished by (you) Dog Star Construction at our Mt. Vernon home. We contacted you with little more than the wish to create an on-suite bath off our master bedroom and a lot of (sometime) conflicting style ideas. The first task was to solve a long standing problem with what we thought was a sunken foundation wall on the one end of the house. As it turned out, the problem was much more complicated and could have easily stopped the project in its tracks. Your experience and skill with these types of issues was evident in the solution you came up with. Thank you for your patience, skill and expertise in creating such a beautiful space. Your attention to detail and commitment to excellence shows in your work ethic and in the finished product. We are ecstatic with our new bath and would not hesitate to recommend Dog Star Construction to others."

"I was looking for a contractor when I found Dog Star Enterprises in the local newspaper and decided to give Travis a call. Travis was the only contractor that came out and looked at the bathroom project in depth.
He was able to give me an estimate that was spot on when he was there. At the time he was estimating on the bathroom he didn't know that he was interviewing for a whole house remodel. He got the job-a full house remodel. He stayed on budget. The job was done in a timely manner
and he had amazing ideas. The best thing is the intricate work that went into it. The house turned out beautiful and I now love my house.
Thank you Travis and Yvette."
