Mike Ode has done a number of projects for us. He was originally referred to us by our architect. We own
a 1913 Denver square and needed some restoration to ceiling box beams in the foyer and living room. Mike completed the repair/restoration and his craftsmanship is absolutely impeccable. Mike also did a complete bathroom remodel at our mountain cabin, built a new mission style mantel for a basement fireplace, and transformed our original front screen door into a storm door. In every case Mike’s work was exceptional and we would never hesitate to call him for the next project that comes up!

Mike was great to work with! He completely remodeled our kitchen/dining/living area and completed numerous updates throughout our home, including custom carpentry, drywall, lighting, hardware and painting. He was professional, knowledgeable, timely, and on budget. We knew what to expect—yet
Mike was also flexible and understanding when we requested changes. He completely supported our
desire for earth-conscious, “green” practices. We were (and over three years later still are)
completely satisfied with his work. We whole-heartedly recommend Mike Ode!

My husband & I have known Mike Ode for over 5 years now. We knew we would love to work with Mike on a renovation at some point, we just did not know when that would be. Our opportunity became a reality in the Summer of 2009. Working with Mike and his team on our first remodel was an amazing experience. He was there holding our hands every step of the way. He was very patient, professional, tidy, efficient and great at offering solutions to problems that would come up here and there. We feel his attention to detail as a craftsman and GC is outstanding. He knew our style prior to the project so it was easy for him to chime in with ideas when asked and help see our end vision. We would highly recommend Mike and will use him in the future when we have another project.

My wife and I have worked with Mike Ode on several large projects over the course of 8+ years. Large projects include a large home addition, building an additional garage, a master bath addition, building an outdoor kitchen, and complete indoor kitchen remodel. Mike also built a large arbor over our patio. We have continued to hire Mike for these projects because of his professionalism, talent and attention to detail (he also picks up well - a real plus). Mike is also originally from the Midwest and has that "midwestern work ethic." We cannot recommend Mike enough.

West Elevations did a fabulous job putting a new kitchen in our 105-year-old Washington Park home. Mike worked well with our designer and provided outstanding advice to us. All of the "surprises" that come with working on old houses were handled with integrity and professionalism. The entire job was undertaken and completed while we were out of the country. We returned to a beautiful new kitchen that was completed on schedule and within the budget. It was a pleasure working with Mike and we look forward to working with West Elevations on future projects.

Not only does Mike do great work, he's great to work with. When he finished our house, I missed talking to him daily, so I enjoyed it when he came back to do our deck. Now we don't have Mike around every day, but we do have a great house and a great deck.
My husband and I decided to begin a major renovation to our historic home in the Baker District in 2006. With a baby on the way, this decision was stressful on so many levels. After interviewing several general contractors, we met Mike Ode. His professional and calm demeanor along with his attention to detail quickly put him at the top of our list. He listened to us and what we wanted from the project. He offered us a lot of ideas for how to achieve our goal, a beautifully remodeled historic home, that kept with the theme of the neighborhood, but still allowed us to put some of our modern touches in to the mix as well. Mike and his team were very considerate of us all during the process, especially since we did remain in the house for a good portion of the project. After approx. 8 months Mike had turned our house into a home. His attention to the original craftsmanship, truly gave us one of the most amazing houses in the neighborhood. Whenever we are outside someone always stops to comment on our house and are surprised to hear that we did add on an addition. With Mike's selection of reclaimed bricks, painting and meticulous woodworking, the addition is seamless. Mike and his team are very easy to talk to, extremely hardworking, dedicated and trustworthy. It makes us proud when our neighbors stop to ask us about our home, but what I am really thinking is...hmmm you should see our master bedroom! Thank you Mike for giving our new family a beautiful home to fill with wonderful memories.
