We hired Lars Hansen to do a major renovation on our home. The job involved building an addition and a front porch, and renovating the kitchen, hall bathroom and other living spaces. It was a large and very complex job that we had been contemplating for a few years. It was critical that we hire someone we trusted and felt comfortable working with through a long project.
At our initial meeting, we reviewed the areas that needed work and discussed the space we wanted to add. Lars was great at helping us see the possibilities and focus on the goals of the renovation. During the project, Lars and his crew kept everything clean and safe, so that our family was able to live comfortably in the house. He was excellent at communicating any challenges that arose and offering solutions that fit with our vision and kept everything on track.
We were very happy with the quality and professionalism of Lars’ crew, including his subcontractors. It was obvious they had all worked with Lars and one another for a long time. That made for a smooth work environment and efficient schedule.
In the end, Lars translated our ideas and goals into a home that we truly adore. The spaces are roomy, bright and comfortable. The cabinets and materials were all expertly installed. The custom cabinetry is beautifully designed, built, and finished. His vision, design and top-notch craftsmanship transformed our home into a very special place.

We have had the pleasure of hiring Lars Hansen for three different projects on our former home in McLean, and now recently on our home in Falls Church.
Lars’ first project on our McLean home was to build a large deck designed to fully appreciate our beautiful back yard. Our family used that deck year-round, as Lars designed easy access to it from inside the family room and from the back yard.
For our second project, Lars redesigned our kitchen, opening it up to the family room and adding a large window seat facing our back yard. But the most amazing part of our new kitchen was a beautiful walnut island that Lars designed and built. This island was a beautiful piece of furniture that fit our family’s style, perfectly fit the kitchen, and provided exceptional functionality.
The third project required Lars to redesign access to a large, enclosed screen patio on the side of our house. In the adjoining living room, he added another double door, placing the door perfectly so as to not adversely affect the use of the living room. That patio became another beautiful and quiet space for our family to use and enjoy. All three of these projects for our McLean home were delivered on time, with minimal disruption by a great crew, and well-priced.
Now, in our home in Falls Church, we yet again have turned to Lars for his expertise to refine our master bathroom, to build a deck, and to design storage. We are excited to work with Lars again as we know that he is excellent at his craft and has wonderful ideas. Our continued repeat business with Lars Hansen Construction is our best review of Lars and his work.

Lars Hansen has done several different remodeling jobs for our family and we have been absolutely thrilled with the high quality of workmanship as well as the fairness of the pricing and the professionalism and friendliness of Lars and his wonderful crew and subcontractors. Lars Hansen Construction has built an elevated screened porch for us, remodeled our kitchen, butler’s pantry and laundry room, remodeled the front portico of our home and constructed an exquisite paneled library with built in desk, library shelving and cabinetry. We could not be any happier with the work done by Lars Hansen Construction and recommend Lars and his team whenever we can. The improvements that have been made have enhanced the value of our home as well as the quality of our family life and are the source of great happiness for our family.

We have hired Lars Hansen for two construction projects at our home in McLean, and would hire him again in a heartbeat. Lars remodeled the lower level of our home with an updated bathroom and transformed our family room with lovely custom built cabinetry, bookcases, new lighting, and crown moulding. He later updated the exterior of our 1958 home by extending the gable roof, and making other significant – but not costly – changes to the façade. We hardly recognized the house after he was done! Lars and his staff are an absolute pleasure to work with. They are consistently professional and punctual, and complete the agreed upon work on schedule. We strongly recommend him and are pleased to serve as a reference.

Lars provides great attention to the customer’s needs and is attentive to every detail. His goal is make his client’s house as comfortable and inviting as possible. Their satisfaction is his greatest reward. The workmanship is first-rate and built to last for generations. Attention to detail can be found in the moulding, the built-in bookcases, and selection of materials. For our cherry wood bookcases, Lars drove to Pennsylvania to select the highest grade material. Lars is a traditionalist when it comes to custom workmanship and never leaves the site until the customer is completely satisfied. Above all, we selected Lars because of his integrity. His crew is equally trustworthy, professional, and responsive. We could not ask for a better contractor and are planning to use him for another project soon.
