Chris Rhodes, Home Remodeling and ConstructionMy name is Chris Rhodes and I think I have always been a contractor at heart! I was one of five children and, as you can imagine, my parents needed to be rather creative when it came to entertaining us.

I remember my mom giving my brother, Ken Rhodes, and I cans of “paint” (the cans actually contained water) and letting us paint the concrete block wall in our backyard. We’d be happy for hours. Also, my dad would take my brother and me to pre-school programs where we used huge wooden boxes and planks for forts.

But maybe my favorite recollection has to do with the “houses” we created. You see, we saved empty egg carton boxes and then used them to build various creations.

Chris Rhodes, a Builder and Remodeler at an Early Age!

That’s me standing on the high chair – what would OSHA think?! Ken and my sister, Peggy (Rhodes Parrish) are seen helping. Part of the fun was knocking each house down!

As a young adult, my fascination with building continued and I pursued my Associate of Science (AS) degree in carpentry from Los Angeles Trade Tech, and graduated in 1980. I received my contractor’s license in 1986. It was great that my brother Ken and I did this together. Today, Ken Rhodes is a licensed contractor (as is his son, Paul Rhodes) serving the San Luis Opbispo area. And I, after finishing my B.A. at Sonoma State University, have been remodeling and building in Santa Rosa and Sonoma County for over 24 years!

One very important thing that distinguishes me from other builders out there is that that I am professionally trained in construction and carpentry, not self taught. I learned how to do it the right way! Plus, it may seem obvious, but I am licensed. You’d be surprised how many builders and handymen/women aren’t.

I enjoy taking something that is in terrible shape (or needs improvement) and transforming it into the home of your dreams. There is a great deal of satisfaction for me in getting things done – everything looks different by 5 pm that it did that morning when my crew and I started work.

In addition to home construction, I specialize in remodeling in the Santa Rosa area, bathroom remodels, and kitchen remodels, as well as commercial tenet improvements. I particularly enjoy helping homeowners with energy efficient window replacements and tankless water heater installation.
