What Customers Are Saying about MLHI...

Paul has been a godsend. We were in the Butte fire and needed quite a bit of rebuilding. Paul exceeded our expectations. He added a outside staircase and deck that is a work of art. I have never walked up stairs that were quite so comfortable...That may sound strange but true.. He refinished the inside of our bunk house and it is absolutely beautiful blue pine siding and one wall is rusted corrugated tin. He is meticulous honest and trustworthy. We will definitely hire him again if he has time for us.
— Frankie S.

Mother Lode installed an entry and flight of stairs from the street into our front deck and also completed significant structural repairs to our back deck at our place in Cedar Ridge. Paul and his team did a superb job on this project. I was impressed with their commitment to quality work and materials as well as their approach to handling the inevitable surprises along the way. Truly a pleasure to work with, I’ll certainly call Nick, Josh and Paul for my next project.
— Randy Z

Our church was damaged by broken water pipes. The bottom floor was inundated and there was quite a bit of damage to classroom walls and restrooms. Paul worked with the insurance company and completely repaired the damage. New doors and casings were installed. Walls were seamlessly restored and textured. New fixtures were installed in the restrooms where needed. Floors were fully repaired. It was a complete transformation! I have no doubt that the repair made the facility better than the original.

Custom redwood deck and staircase

New deck extension with stairs. Per the customer's request we used heavy timbers custom milled from old growth sugar pine salvaged from the Tuolumne County Rim fire. This material holds up exceptionally well to the elements.


twain harte pine interior

Customer just purchased her dream cabin; original cabin has traditional pine over large rafters. However the addition was constructed with a modern sheetrock finish which did not blend well with the cozy pine feel of the older part of the cabin. The updated pine interiors added a warm touch to an already classic home.


home addition with spiral staircase and patio

Twain Harte home addition that included a lower entertainment room and upper loft with a custom spiral staircase. The project included an outdoor stamped and stained concrete patio, complete framing and interior build, siding, windows and roofing.
