It was a pleasure to work with Doug Stern. As you can imagine, it usually is not easy to be so far away and have someone build a house for you. The construction went very smoothly. Not only did Doug stick to budget and deliver a great finished project, but he made sure that we were aware of everything that was going on, sending us photos or detailed emails. He consulted with us along the way to get decisions on things that we did not address while we were in Costa Rica.

From the beginning Doug was responsive and creative in our home addition project. He answered all of our questions and made the process simple by taking care of all the organization, purchasing, etc. His crew is conscientious, professional and obviously skilled. We were particularly impressed at Doug's attention to detail and how often he visited the job site given how small of a project it was. We highly recommend Doug and his team.

I just wanted to say thanks for being there for me again with our second construction project. Casa de Suenos has held up great. It's as good as new 10 years later! I can't wait to see Casa de Suenos Norte when it is finished. It's reassuring to do another project with someone as honest and skilled as you. Thanks for everything. Pura Vida!

Just a thank you, being from Canada and building a new home in Costa Rica, was not only challenging, but, who do you use, or who can you trust, or who can answer your questions? These were all things that worried us. Fortunately, Doug and his crew were recommended. Not only did they do a very professional job, they kept us well informed throughout the construction process, with pictures, emails and phone calls. Their workmanship and attention to details impressed me, and their after construction service is second to none. I have a background in construction and would highly recommend Noswell Construction along with Doug and his crews for any work in Costa Rica.

Any home construction project can be challenging and stressful. Building our home in Costa Rica could have been doubly so as we were still living in the US. Fortunately, we chose to work with Doug Stern and his Noswell Construction. Good coordination between Doug and the architects he managed made project planning easy for us. Plus, effective budgeting (our project ended up right on plan), successful scheduling (our house was completed a month early) and good communications about necessary input from us was our experience. In fact, we ended up with a home with added smart details and design enhancements that we failed to consider, but Doug, Quicho and his dedicated employees delivered because they took pride in the outcome. We recommend Doug and his team without reservation.
