Our Client base of repeat referrals is a living testimonial to our success.

"We were continuingly impressed by the care and detail expressed by Ken and his team. We are extremely pleased with the results of the work on our home."

–Montecito Shores Homeowner

"Over the past six years we have used Trillium construction for extensive addition, remodeling and restoration of our house in Hope Ranch. They have always met their time commitment, stayed with the job and have delivered quality work.  We still rely on Trillium whenever we need help with anything related to house maintenance and it’s good to know that they are always there willing to respond promptly and ready to help."

-David & Laurette Nitka

"I have used Trillium Enterprises, Inc. for two large remodeling projects over the last 15 years as well as numerous smaller projects in the interim. I would not consider using any other construction group except Trillium for any project, large or small. I could not ask for a more attentive, competent workforce, always on time and on budget. Peter Cohen pays great attention to detail and always kept me informed and was on top of any unexpected problems that arose. I recommend Trillium to all my friends with construction needs, without reservation."

-Hilary Dozer

"Ken Cohen/Trillium Enterprises remodeled our home and we are absolutely thrilled with the remodel.  Our home turned out beautifully! The craftsmanship and quality of the work done to our home was excellent. We also appreciated the day to day communication and follow through provided by Ken and his office staff. Ken is trustworthy and forthright and we were always able to reach him as needed during the remodel. Ken's employees do excellent work and were always dependable and courteous. We have worked with other contractor's and Ken Cohen far exceeded our expectations. We continue to have a working relationship with Ken as he helps us maintain our other properties. Without reservation, we highly recommend Ken Cohen/Trillium!"

-Seymour & Diane Duncan

"Trillium provides excellent services from start to finish, top to bottom. They are always easily available anytime I need to confer with them. I was at the job site almost daily for 18 months and saw them attend to dozens of detailed issues in a timely manner. They are trustworthy and punctual. I built one home and remodeled two others with Trillium and highly recommend their services."

-Jody Boyman

"My remodel project was two-fold in nature, I wanted a loft extended and custom skywalks installed for my cats. Trillium offered the expertise I was looking for, including the catwalks, and I had seen the quality of their work at Peter Cohen's home. The work crews were very professional. The project ran longer than anticipated and I had to leave for a business trip in the middle of it, but I felt very confident that I could safely leave my home in their hands while I was gone. Peter Cohen, co-owner of Trillium, kept in touch with me and even emailed photos of the progressing work. I found Peter very easy to work with and accommodating. The subcontractors offered very good suggestions and everyone cleaned up after themselves each day. I plan on using Trillium in the future and have already recommended them to friends."

-Marci Kladnik

"Trillium was the General Contractor for a 2,800 sq ft home I purchased. We did a complete remodel including kitchen and bathrooms (the expensive rooms!), adding about 500 sq ft to the house. We also completely hard-scaped and landscaped the nearly one acre property. Peter Cohen and his team 1) created an itemized, accurate proposal so that we could properly budget the projects, 2) coordinated every sub-contractor and had them well-timed to keep progress going with a minimum of down-time, 3) respectfully and efficiently handled the inevitable questions we, as owners, had when things were different than what we understood, 4) fielded every "change order" with curiosity of exactly what we wanted and a prompt update of the estimate so we could make informed decisions, 5) finished the job timely and followed through on any post-construction concern for easily 12 months. Construction projects have so many variables and unknowns. To me, a person with whom one can communicate is essential to collaborate through the process. And producing results, not just empty promises and lip service. Trillium did a superb job and I absolutely recommend them."
