Multiple threads of thought and influence converged into a career path of carpentry. At the age of 10, a family trip to look at a custom home being built in Santa Barbara, CA captured my attention for unconventional living spaces. During those formative years, illustrations of houses and structures were intriguing to me and sparked the question, "how do you build one of those?" Growing up in a community of crafters, artists and tradesmen instilled a value of craftsmanship, creative vision and working with one's hands. A college Art History class introduced different architectural styles and design concepts but the "How" question remained. A life long appreciation for the Sierra Nevada surrounded by wood, granite, clear air and bright light and the desire to work outside in the mountains precipitated the choice to pursue carpentry in Tahoe. Nearly 30 years of field experience and technical problem solving later, I am still answering the question of my youth.

I am 24 years old, born and raised in the South Lake Tahoe area. I love being outdoors, playing soccer, and fly fishing the local rivers and lakes. I also love working on hands on projects and that's why I got into construction. I love spending time with my spouse and our five month old baby girl.
We worked with HHC on a several month project, mostly on the finishing stages of building a home. Their work was impeccable, they were on time, held on to their word, and were good communicators throughout the process when we hit challenges. I would highly recommend working with them on any project.
Bret Hackett is one of the most professional Contractors I have ever worked with. He is honest and has a great sense when it comes to design. His company is very meticulous about the details. I would work with Healthy Home Consultants all the time given the opportunity!
I recommend Healthy Home Consultants hands-down. Bret and his team have incredible vision, foresight and flexibility. It was easy to let them make decisions based on our personal taste. Their work is incredible. We could not be happier with the results of our gut job remodel.
Award winning designers and builders in the Tahoe area. After talking with Bret I became convinced of his expertise and passion for coming up with creative solutions and innovative designs. After choosing Healthy Home to design my house I was given a six page questionnaire about my desires and lifestyle. The result they came up with was like they were reading my mind. I was beyond satisfied with their services. I love the house!

We worked with Briette on a kitchen and bathroom remodel and couldn't be happier! She came with a lot of great ideas, but was flexible in creating revisions as our vision changed. My husband and I had a strong idea of what we wanted, without actually knowing how to achieve it, and Briette helped up make it happen in a restricting space. Highly recommend!
We hired Healthy Home Consultants to design, permit and build a two car garage with an apartment on top. Construction in Lake Tahoe is heavily regulated and this project was built immediately next to our home which we occupied during the entire process. Despite these challenges we were pleased with the process and happy with the finished structure. Healthy Home Consultants designed an attractive and environmentally responsible building that has improved the quality of life for our family.
I would definitely recommend Health Home Co! Bret & Clint and their crew were wonderful to work with. We did a full downstairs/kitchen remodel, and as these things go, we ran in to a bump or two along the way, but the guys did a fantastic job of being in communication the whole time and had solutions for the bumps. The web platform they use for the project is awesome, and we could see what they completed each week, along with pictures as we weren't living in the house at the time the remodel started. I was able to refer back to the pictures when I needed to install a tv to see what was behind the wall. Super grateful for their transparency and attention to detail. The crew was here, a lot... they felt like family as we would always chat with them and my 5 year old would "help" them with the construction at times. It was bittersweet when they were done because I was so happy with all they did, but was sad we wouldn't be seeing them again... so we're planning an addition on the home in the future to have them back, haha! I can't say enough good things about this company, they are wonderful to work with and really listened.
PHENOMENAL! From beginning to end, not a single complaint. My whole house remodel was done battling covid, the cost of materials doubled or even tripled, and of course….supply chain issues. Even through all that, the team at Healthy Home was so professional and their communication was top notch. Any issue that came up was met head on with confidence and I was never kept in the dark about anything. Don’t hesitate to hire Bret and his team, it’ll be the best decision you’ll make for your project.
