"Jeff created a beautiful fence in our yard with great skill and design sense. He was nothing but professional during every step of the process and we are so pleased with the result. "

"If you want anything built with hand selected wood, with incredible craftsmanship that will last for the long run, Jeff is your guy. He not only has incredible technical skill, he is a great person and communicator who does what he says he is going to do. It was a very positive (and fun) experience from beginning to end. He builds things for others with the same quality and precision that he would build for himself. There were a couple nail holes where the putty didn't exactly match the wood: I didn't say anything because Jeff pointed it out and it he found a solution. He looks at the project like an artist does and his high standards ensures that his designs are top notch. We got quotes from others that were less, but the quality was at a lower level. We wanted a pergola, fence and gates that would last for years and years. We had to save up for this project and it was totally worth it. We are so thrilled with the results and we have folks walking down the street just to look at it. Seriously, it is that good. It is so fun to come home and drive up to our house!! It looks great!"

"We highly recommend Jeff. He built our fence and did a fantastic job. We've had many people comment on how great it looks. He was wonderful to work with...great communication, high integrity, on time, and very talented! We were particularly impressed with his expertise, creativity, and interpersonal skills. We wouldn't hesitate to hire him again or recommend him to others."

"Jeff Nelson was recommended to us by a friend that had used his services to build a fence. He built a fence, gate and trellis for us. He was great to work with! Jeff offered ideas and advice and listened to our design goals. His services were reasonably priced and he worked efficiently to complete the job in a timely manner. I would certainly use Green Coast Carpentry again and highly recommend Jeff Nelson."

"We hired Jeff a couple of years ago to build our new fence. He was not the lowest of 3 bids we received but we hired him based on references, knowledge, and professionalism. I could tell immediately that Jeff was a person of high integrity who would follow through with the project and do his very best. Our fence is gorgeous! We were so happy with it that we hired Jeff again the following year to build a small detached cottage/office in our backyard. Not only did Jeff build a beautiful office for us, he designed it too! I am writing this review from that very office right now. I can truly not recommend Jeff highly enough!"

"I spent many months researching fencing contractors, obtaining bids, and looking at completed fence projects around the city. After seeing the high quality craftsmanship of a fence Jeff had built, I met with him to discuss our project. I found Jeff to be very personable and easy to work with; he discussed all aspects of my project with me in detail and provided valuable input with regard to materials, design/aesthetics, and physical construction of the fence (most of which I had never considered). All work was completed to the highest standard, and the final product is a beautiful addition to our house. When we were considering a project involving the construction of a decorative cedar retaining wall to match the fence, Jeff was the only person we considered for the job. Highly recommended!"

"Jeff does such beautiful work. I would recommend Green Coast Carpentry to anyone and would hire them for any future carpentry work."

Kelda A., Bellingham, WA

"Jeff rebuilt our deck and added on steps, a railing, two roofs, a half-circle cut out for a circular hot tub and he constructed a hot tub pad. He was very helpful in the design process as we didn't have a clear idea of what we wanted at first. He used environmentally responsible stain and he went out of his way to get quality wood for the project. We are extremely pleased with the quality of our deck and it was a pleasure working with Jeff."

Jennifer C., Bellingham, WA

"We hired Jeff a couple of years ago to replace our aging (dangerous) deck. We loved working with him and appreciated his attention to detail and level of professionalism. He always had great tips too, for example recognizing that the concrete slab that our deck would be built on was prone to flooding which would have created problems with our new deck. He suggested digging a ditch and filling it with stones to drain the water before it hit our new deck. We are thrilled with the end result. Our new deck feels more like an extra room on our house. Would recommend Jeff to any friend or family member looking for a beautiful new deck.."

Sarah S., Bellingham, WA

"Jeff was undoubtedly the most professional, polite and caring individual one could ever expect to be in charge of a home improvement job. Each day, when I arrived home from work, he was still working, or in the process of clean up. He was always available to discuss what he had completed that day, and open for any questions or ideas of what was next or any changes needed. I was also very impressed with his quality of work. He is obviously a craftsman and takes pride in his work. In short, the entire project was a positive and non-stressful situation."

Deborah H., Sudden Valley, WA

"Jeff has built two fences in my backyard and I am most pleased with the quality of his work and his creative artistry. I value his personable professionalism, his eye for beauty, his responsiveness, efficiency, and that he supports local lumber companies. I welcome people to come by and see his work!"

Shirley O., Bellingham, WA

"What really resonated with me was the minimizing of waste product and the reuse of available resources, while still keeping attention to detail. I recommend Jeff for any and all outdoor projects."

Charles L., Bellingham, WA

"Jeff Nelson of GreenCoast Carpentry did a great job for me on several projects. He listened to my ideas, and translated them into reality, using recycled materials and working within my schedule. As a single gal, it is important to me to have someone trustworthy in my home, and you could not find a nicer guy than Jeff. I will use him again the next time my home repair plans get ahead of my abilities."

Libby G., Bellingham, WA

"I highly recommend Jeff at GreenCoast Carpentry. He is timely, respectful and honest. He has phenomenal communication skills. When he's doing a project at my home, I feel like we are part of a team. I have no reservations in recommending him for any job, big or small."

Christine K., Bellingham, WA

"My wife and I had a vision for a shed that would complement our new watershed-friendly landscape. Jeff did a great job of working with us to turn what we had in mind into a structure that is both functional and visually pleasing. Jeff has tremendous pride in his work but also understands that projects need to be completed in a timely manner. He is thoughtful about the local and global environmental impact of his work, a perspective my wife and I want to support. We recommend Jeff Nelson of GreenCoast Carpentry without reservation."

Michael and Mary J., Bellingham, WA

"We needed a fence for practical purposes. Jeff’s commitment to quality and his skilled craftsmanship resulted in a pleasing design and execution that has added to the overall appearance of our property, surpassing our original expectations. Our neighbors have expressed their appreciation as well! Jeff is easy to work with, communicates clearly, and follows through on agreements (no surprises). We look forward to other projects with GreenCoast Carpentry, and recommend him wholeheartedly."
