…We knew immediately after the fire we would rebuild and wanted to honor the beauty and rich history of the valley by building a modern cabin in the same footprint… From the first meeting with Dean, to designing the cabin with Tobin, and then walking through the day to day build with Lytton, we felt comfortable and in complete control of our project… Every member of the RVDC team was exceptional and did outstanding work at the craftsman’s level… It was an amazing experience watching this build progress and then finally move in. Although our 1940’s rustic cabin is gone, RVDC made it possible in a time of immense sadness to reconnect with the river and the land. We love our modern cabin on the river and will continue to nurture it as well as the land and river for generations to come. Thanks Rainbow Valley!

We originally bought our home knowing that a remodel would be necessary if we wanted to stay long term with our growing family. We are happy we chose Rainbow Valley for the job. Our project team never hesitated with the challenge of adding a second level to our home and our Designer, Tobin, even came up with the perfect solution on the first try. Throughout the process our Project Manager, Kevin, was consistent and thorough in his communication on project updates and kept to schedules. The crew was even able to begin the project a week early! Thanks to Rainbow Valley we now have the home we always dreamed of.

Our home came preloaded with a very distinctive style but it wasn’t ours, and the kitchen space didn’t work well for us. Enter Team Rainbow Valley. Our designer Alec Dakers asked all the right questions to help us articulate our vision for the space. The final design was made a reality by Lytton Reid and Phillip Baxter, and Dana Tessler kept us well apprised of the financials. We ended up with a space that is as functional as it is beautiful.

Successful remodel projects require clear communication and no small amount of trust. Each element of our project, from screw selection to billing, received the same high level of attention, thought, and care from Rainbow Valley’s extraordinary team.

-Ce Rosenow and Angie Thompson


Our goal with this remodel was to honor the integrity of our 100-year-old home, and to work with every inch of the existing footprint. Rainbow Valley’s attention to detail was essential to make the project a success, and we had confidence that every hand in this project (from designer to subcontractor) had our best interest in mind. The staff both offered ideas and incorporated ours as we worked together to create a kitchen that is now the hub of our busy home. We are incredibly pleased with the results. Three years later, we wouldn’t change a thing!

The Rainbow Valley Team expertly navigated us through every phase of the project

The Rainbow Valley Team expertly navigated us through every phase of the project and the inevitable old house remodel surprises.  It was a pleasure to have such gracious and conscientious people transform our vision for the remodel into reality.  Thank you, Alec, Andrew, Richard, Ian and all the other wonderful people at Rainbow Valley for creating a home we love every day.

-Stephanie and Ken Osborn


Designing and building a new home is exciting and challenging, regardless of size. Our partners at Rainbow Valley were efficient, forward thinking and highly skilled. The little black cottage in the woods captures and compliments the vitality of its setting and is a real joy to inhabit!

I’ve been working with Rainbow for eleven years now. I am such a repeat customer I’ve lost count of the projects. We have worked together on an outdoor kitchen, spa and entertainment area, a tile shower, rescue wood floor repair after a water leak, new door installation, kitchen remodel and entire first floor remodel, and the list goes on. They are so caring and conscientious I can’t imagine working with anyone else!  Rainbow takes care of their customers and their employees… They are communicative and transparent with schedule and costs which proves invaluable during a remodel!!

We highly recommend RVDC in every aspect, and after 4+ projects, we know!

RVDC has been part of every aspect of our home renovation since 2014 when they did our living room, hallway and bathroom.  A year later they were back to do the bedrooms and primary bath, and in 2016 for the basement. In 2019 we took on another project and they transformed our yard into an estate. They are very good at anticipating needs and explaining procedures. Throughout the whole process the crew was extraordinarily efficient, helpful, always pleasant and always with a sense of humor. I would like to give a special thanks to Alec Dakers, Dean Lamoureux, Phillip Baxter, and Nic Porter, Jon Clark, and Ali McQueen. We highly recommend RVDC in every aspect, and after 4+ projects, we know!

Rainbow Valley is a pleasure to work with.

We’re so pleased with our remodel! Rainbow Valley is a pleasure to work with. Their attention to detail is amazing, the communication is top notch and we felt like they really listened to our wants and needs. Scott, Andrew and Richard (along with all their helpers and subs) we’re fantastic to work with and were always happy to answer questions in a friendly manner. Our new space is exactly as we imagined it to be and the hours we spend there are countless. We would use them again in a heartbeat!

-Kate & Matt Hillers

We would easily use RV again and have recommended them to several friends.

We have a long history with Rainbow Valley using them for multiple remodels at our previous home. It was an easy choice to engage RV for this much larger project. The communication, attention to detail, commitment to making sure we were happy were all great. Alec has great ideas in the design process but also closely listens to make sure our “style” is incorporated. Andrew and his team created an environment where we could live as a family and minimized the overall disruption to our lives. In the end, we could not be happier. We would easily use RV again and have recommended them to several friends.

“Our patio project was our second major project with Rainbow Valley. After our first large project, a kitchen renovation, there was no question whom we would choose. From the beginning, the designer and the project manager offered helpful suggestions and designs, listened to our ideas, and beautifully incorporated existing trees and other features into a space that is comfortable, practical and beautiful. Once the work began, the Rainbow Valley folks and subcontractors were dependable, knowledgeable, skilled, and a pleasure to be around. In most projects, surprises happen and minor adjustments are required. The folks at Rainbow Valley don’t quit until they get it right.”

-Anne S.

We could not be more pleased with our beautiful lake house

“As we embarked on our project, we knew selecting the right company for a major remodel was the most important decision we would be making. From the first meeting to the completion of the project, Rainbow Valley Design and Construction was fantastic to work with. Alec’s approach to design was creative, engaging and collaborative. He listened to our ideas, introduced unique design features and made sure we were completely satisfied before moving forward. Michael and Chris were true craftsmen in their approach to construction and quality finish work. We could not be more pleased with our beautiful lake house.”

-Tim and Pam Herrmann

Every Detail Is Amazing!

“Sandie and I want to thank Ali and Jon and Rainbow Valley for the amazing job you did designing and building our outdoor living structure. It is amazing. We have guests over often and they are always astonished by the structure, bracketing, and amazing rock fireplace which I call our “Game of Thrones” fireplace. I am so glad we had Rainbow Valley do this project. We see a lot of outdoor living structures as we visit family and friends and always know in the back of our mind we have something especially unique and wonderful. The finished project is exactly as I dreamed of it to be! Every detail is amazing! I enjoyed working with Jon and the crew. They were all very professional and responsive. Thank you so much!”

-Matt and Sandie Longtin

We Would Work With Them Again In A Heartbeat

“Working with Rainbow Valley to remodel our vintage home was a wonderful experience. Their design embraced our vision. Their workmanship was superior at every turn. They listened. They kept us informed. They showed up on time. They are really good at what they do. We would work with them again in a heartbeat.”

-Leslie and Brent Wells

A Masterpiece To Be Enjoyed By Our Family For Years To Come

“When we decided to purchase rural property and build our new home we never imagined just how rewarding it would be.  The privacy and quietness of living outside of town is now complete with our beautiful home built by the skillful crew from Rainbow Valley Design and Construction.  Alec, Dean, Mike, Roman, John and others worked closely with us to make sure every construction detail turned from drawings and raw materials into a masterpiece to be enjoyed by our family for years to come.”


Rainbow Valley was a pleasure to work with.

“Rainbow Valley was a pleasure to work with. They were always interested in our well being during this remodel. Alec was full of ideas, plans, and dreams. And Michael was there keeping things in control and keeping the project moving. At the end of each day questions had been answered and the remodel area was clean as a whistle. I couldn’t have been happier during this project and was very happy with the end results. Hooray for Rainbow valley, I would use them again and again.”

-Robin Babb

We Love Our New Space!

“We love our new space! On the outside, everything was so thoughtfully completed that you cannot tell that there was an addition at all! On the inside, attention to detail by the team resulted in a room that compliments the rest of our house and exceeds our expectations. We enjoyed working with everyone who was here.”

-John & Valda Lundblade


How can an older home project keep the character, yet modernize it to enhance efficiency and ease? That was the question presented to Rainbow Valley. The Rainbow Valley staff was respectful in keeping special memories and supporting the integrity of the structure and landscape. Their knowledge & skill gave it a professional touch. The project was customer friendly, honoring choices, yet provided helpful solutions. The end result maximized efficiencies, space, and style. Their project coordination was timely and financially accurate, completing a beautiful finished product.

The outdoor space Rainbow Valley designed and built for us was a life-changer. We had no way of knowing when we started the project that a pandemic was looming which would force us to move all social events outside for almost two years. The gorgeous porch covering and sumptuous surrounding gardens were like an outdoor haven where we could have socially distanced visits in an extremely comfortable environment … truly, an extension of our home. The grounds and structure have received literally hundreds of rave compliments from friends and family. The project has brought great joy to our lives. Ali and Jon were the absolute best to work with, creative, professional, and eager for our input. A great experience and result all around.

Rainbow is TOPS!

“Rainbow is TOPS! We couldn’t be happier..”

-John & Catherine Smith

We Definitely Recommend Rainbow Valley

“…We thoroughly enjoyed the design process with Alec Dakers and then later the building process with Michael Scarola, our project manager. We appreciated working and exploring with Alec and Michael as they figured out how to build our not so typical house. The entire building crew including in-house and subcontractors were very professional and knowledgable, easy to work with, and fun to be around… Occasionally, both Alec and Michael donned their tool belts and we all worked together to add some of our unique elements. We would definitely recommend Rainbow Valley for your design and construction needs especially if you want to push the envelope and design something out of the ordinary.”

-Dune City New Home client

Pleasure To Work With

“My husband and I recently completed an attached outdoor patio and partial room remodel with Rainbow Valley… We couldn’t be happier. Their contract and customer communication process is transparent and personal. All the sub contractors were super and any little glitch was immediately addressed. The patio is exactly like we envisioned. Highly recommended.”

-Jacqueline Chama

Rainbow Valley Is Fabulous

“Rainbow Valley is fabulous… Alec Dakers and Andrew Dimitru were absolutely wonderful to work with. They were as excited with the vision of the remodel as I was and the end result was more than I could have hoped for… There was not a person who worked with the team who was not just as great as the two of them. All subcontractors were very genuinely nice people whom I had no problem welcoming into my home. The quality of work was exceptional. They were thorough and detailed, and I am very happy with the results.I would use them again in a heartbeat.”

-Vicki James

I’d Gladly Hire Them Again

“Rainbow Valley designed and built an addition to my house. They kept the costs within the bid price, maybe even a bit less and did quality high standard work. The project was completed in the time frame given, they only missed one day of work due to inclement weather. Scott, listened carefully to what I wanted in the design. If there were any problems we worked them out together. I would gladly hire them again. The finished product is better than I could have imagined.”

-Susan Stoddart

Rainbow Takes Care Of Their Customers

I Have No Hesitation In Recommending Rainbow Valley

“I have had the honor of working with Rainbow Valley Design and Construction on several projects for over thirty years. I trust Rainbow Valley. They consistently offer excellent design, clear communication, reasonable pricing, and thorough follow-through in every aspect of the relationship. I have no hesitation in recommending Rainbow Valley and enthusiastically look forward to the opportunity of working with them on another project.”

-Robert Wakeley Wheeler and Katherine S. Wheeler

Great To Work With

“Great to work with… It was our first time working with a contractor. The shared online tool let us know what was happening in real time and… I really appreciated how well things were organized. Their design really helped us get the most of a small space and welcomed our tweaks that made it our own. The subs were all very pleasant, worksite was always clean. Project was pretty much on time and budget. I think the best compliment we can give is they built what we dreamed.”

-Hendricks Park Remodel client

You Guys Rock!

“Alec is the best! He has great vision and gave us exactly what we wanted. He and Andrew made it happen!!! The entire Rainbow Valley crew was awesome!! Lytton and crew made our landscaping beautiful. You guys rock!”

-Dana Naylor (Stone Works)


The skills and expertise of our Rainbow Valley Design-Build team turned our fragmented ideas and bad sketches into our dream home! Collaborating with our designer was a highlight of our experience. Thank you to our entire team and all of their hard work. We are grateful.

-Cheryl Quinlan


Our team of Dean, Tobin and Kevin remodeled our 60’s ranch house literally from the bottom of the septic tank to the top of the chimney, and we are so pleased with the result. Two things we appreciated were RV’s collaborative approach and their unwillingness to sacrifice quality. We had a rough notion of what we wanted at the start of the project, and by the end it had evolved to exactly what we wanted. Tobin would take ideas from anyone if he thought it made the result more to our liking, but he kept a subtle filter on things to keep the end result cohesive… Rainbow’s not the fastest nor the least expensive, but we were looking for a sense of quality and craftsmanship, and they delivered.

-John and Carla Brock

I Highly Recommend Them

“These guys are great! Starting with Alec, who had great ideas for our home remodel and drew great plans, all the way to the crew, who did beautiful, meticulous work. In spite of the fact that almost our whole house was being worked on, we were still able to live comfortably, as they cleaned up every day after work. The carpenters came to feel like part of our family. We have had so many comments about how great our house looks. I highly recommend them.”

-David Funk

The Team Was Easy To Work With, Respectful and Professional.

“My home is a 1950 construction 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath. Rainbow Valley helped me to convert the Bath (Tub/Shower) into a aging in place walk in Shower. I now have a heated subway tile floor, with coordinating tile shower and walls. It is simple, elegant, comfortable and perfect for now and later. The team was easy to work with, respectful and professional. I would hire them again!!!”
