Mares & Dow – General Home Contractors

Custom House Plans and Design Services

Serving San Francisco and East Bay Since 1983

Achieving successful results on any project starts with good planning. When building or remodeling your home, you need good house plans backed by a quality construction team. Working with Mares & Dow Construction & Skylight means you don’t have to settle for a basic floor plan. We’ll work with your architect to create a custom floor plan for your home.

Our experts can bring your vision to life by handling all the details of designing the house plans and collaborating with your architect. We’ll review the details with you, including the projected cost, to ensure every detail is accurate and accounted for.

House Plans Designed to Meet Your Budget

Knowing your budget is a crucial part of defining your construction project. Getting our team involved early allows us to maintain that budget by identifying areas that would be problematic to build, increasing your costs. 


Be specific about where you’re willing to allow for an expanded budget or whether that’s impossible. The better you know your limits, the faster we can progress through the design phase.
