We hit the jackpot and found Dana and Alastair with a chance meeting during our first trip to San Juanico. Working remotely, Dana took great care to find us the perfect property and a home we could build, all within our budget. Both were professional, communicative and easy to work with. While we were in Texas, our Baja home was completed on time, and within the budget. We absolutely love our home thanks to Dana, Alastair and all their builders. It’s a work of art! We highly recommend this team.

Alastair and dana built our house in San juanico which is at scorpion bay in Baja sur. The house is in a Spanish colonial style with a detailed brick parapet and other architectural details. We have received many compliments on the style and quality of work. Dana and Alastair do beautiful work and without skimping on the quality they still managed to save money on the materials and labor. They are both very professional and easy to communicate with. Even though their knowledge is best they still listen to your ideas and opinions. Highly recommended.

When Alastair remodeled an original Mid Century home I owned in Los Angeles, CA it turned out perfectly. His attention to detail was spot on and his ability to keep within budget and schedule was refreshing. Alastair’s design & fabrication skills are the reason I chose him to build a line of studio production carts, truly amazing. A master of perfection determined to build things that last, I will always use Alastair when starting a project.

Dana and Alastair has made our dream of having a custom built home in San Juanico a reality. It was such a pleasure to work with Dana and Alastair on our project. They did an excellent job following our design plan and were very hands on with our vision and gave us parameters of what was and what wasn’t possible within our budget. They kept us informed and up to date start to finish. Throughout the entire process, a professional work ethic was displayed by everyone involved on the project. We were so pleased with the professionalism of the work crew, the quality of there work and the ease with which our project was accomplished. Our new Casita serves as a referral to showcase the exceptional job that they did for us.
Thank you both, and everyone involved, so much.

I am writing to recommend Alastair Hilson whom I have known since 1998. Alastair assisted and worked with me on many projects in Los Angeles, and in fact throughout the United States. I work primarily within the Architect and Design community building extremely high-end custom designed furniture and completing remodeling construction in and around the Los Angeles area. Alastair and his “Weasel Works” crew were an invaluable resourse to me and my business in general. Alastair operated and ran his own workshop with a crew of carpenters working under his expert supervision. The Weasel Works Workshop was synonymous with high-end, beautifully crafted furniture and remodels built to exacting standards and on time. Very often we were dealing with extremely demanding clients (often within the entertainment community) and Alastair was a calm, self-assured partner I could always rely on. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any further questions.

I have had the privilege of working with Alastair on numerous construction + landscaping projects over the years. His creativity, professionalism and attention to detail are incomparable. He is that rare craftsman whose building skills are matched by his ingenuity and honesty.
I would recommend him without reservation for any building, landscaping or design project you can come up with.

Of all the building and remodeling projects that we have undertaken, this one was the least stressful and most enjoyable. Excellent craftsmanship, no hidden costs, no overage, no surprises. What we all agreed upon at the very beginning of the project was exactly the same at the end of the day. Dana and Alastair are impeccable honest and for them their word is their bond. We highly recommend their work. Feel free to come by and check out our house and ask us more.

At Shawn Hausman Design, we pride ourselves on being a specialized team, that work on a few projects at a time with a loyal client base. We have worked with Alastair on several design / construction projects and have found him to be hard-working, organized and conscientious. He grasps design concepts quickly and turns them into reality. He is also creative with materials, knowledgeable in many facets of construction, and brings a lot of experience to the table. Most importantly, his workmanship is exceptional. We believe he would be an asset to any project, be it as a designer, contractor or craftsman.

We think that Alastair and his construction crew did an excellent job on the house they built for me and my family in San Juanico.He built the house in a timely manner.The house is built to withstand hurricanes; built of concrete with a concrete roof.The finish on the concrete floor looks great! In addition my daughter really appreciates the fact that the floor will be easy to clean.The choice of the wood and the finish on the wood makes the woodwork in the house really stand out.Also the way the inside of the house is designed gives you a spacious feeling when your inside the house and the cost of building the house was reasonable.I would highly recommend Dana, Alastair, and his construction crew for any construction work that needs to be done.
