"We updated our kitchen. So happy with the results. Calvin and his crew are professional, trustworthy, dependable, and so friendly. We would definitely use Hill county B&R for future projects. Juan is definitely an artistic craftsman. Great Crew. "

 "I absolutely love my newly remodeled bathroom. Juan is great at what he does. He's very professional and dependable. Calvin showed up everyday to check on the project and make sure everything was going as planned. They actually finished a week ahead of schedule. I will definitely be hiring them for my next project.

We got a referral from our neighbor in Highland Terrace, Canyon Lake for HCBR.  They had a major balcony repair completed and were very happy.  Calvin and his crew really did a great job.  It wasn't easy and there were some issues that came up that they took care of without extra cost.  They were not the lowest bid we got but we really felt we our monies worth and then some.  We highly recommend HCBR for any and all work.

Retired"My wife and I have built eight homes as General Contractors and Home Designers. And, we have rehabilitated four others. We know what quality construction is. We know the work that is required to build a home. Calvin Paulsen delivers quality and integrity with a smile! He has an indefatigable work ethic and is honest in his dealings with his clients. If you can define what you want, he can build it. I have seen some amazing projects he has worked on and they are the best quality you can find. "

If we ever decide to build a new house, we’d hire him in a heartbeat!"My husband and I contracted with Calvin to completely remodel our kitchen this past February. We could not have asked for a better contractor! He was on time every day. He completed the work in (what we considered) record time. Best of all, he did an absolutely beautiful job! He has an eye for detail and can solve problems, should they arise, with minimal fuss and disruption. If we ever decide to build a new house, we'd hire him in a heartbeat!"

I simply can't say enough regarding how pleased I am with my new custom workshop built by HCBR. I’m a retired Naval Aviator and former ship Commanding Officer with recent work experience in residential construction management so my expectations were for nothing less than the highest standards of design and quality workmanship. Calvin was a consummate professional throughout the entire process and an absolute pleasure to work with. The entire project came in right on budget and was completed two weeks earlier than originally estimated. He kept us well informed throughout the entire process and was exceptionally resourceful with design ideas and material solutions that ultimately resulted in a construction project that exceeded all my expectations. Calvin has earned my highest possible recommendation and I won’t hesitate to contact him when we are ready for our next major home improvement or new construction project. Absolutely first-rate work from start to finish! James T. Cox, CAPT USN(Ret.)

"Once again, Calvin and his workers knocked it out of the park! He had done our kitchen two years ago, which is why we hired him again for this job. He was on time every day, worked quickly, and handled problems that came up (very few, I might add) with no drama. The biggest issues were none of his doing. Things like delayed special order items from our supplier and a VERY slow cabinet maker were beyond his control. We are thrilled with the final results! We remodeled our master suite which is an en suite master that, aside from the water closet, is one open room. The new design involved removing part of a wall to create a door-less, walk-in shower."

He has a through knowledge of the construction industry!!!

I have known Calvin at HCBR for approximately 10 years and have had them complete some pretty amazing work. As a design professional and engineer, I have observed his construction means and methods and found that he is very competent, skilled and effective in completing projects on time and on budget. I have also followed his career and taken note of the varied complex projects he has completed. We have discussed recent projects where he approaches challenges with solid solutions. He never cut corners leaving undesirable or hidden defects. His work is excellent. I have seen reviews, spoke to and observed other clients projects and found that he pays the same attention to detail in every aspect of custom home building as he has mine. He has a through knowledge of the construction industry and I would recommend his abilities building a house without question"

"Could write an essay, but don't have the time: We contracted HCBR to restore our pool room after sustaining water damage from a pipe break, and the stucco ceiling had to be replaced. Calvin is an unusual contractor for this area: He shows up when he says he will, he calls when on his way and gets done what he says will be done. He stays on top of his subs and makes sure that any work is done correctly. We are very pleased with the final result and highly recommend Calvin / HCBR. It was a pleasure to work with him!"
