As first time business owners, we were lucky enough to contract the Ochoa Brothers to renovate a very old, very tired building in East Nashville into what is now Vinyl Tap. Our only direction was that we wanted a bar on one side and a record store on the other in two rooms that had to be gutted into one. Oh, and make it feel like ‘us’. Aaron, Lesley and a simply amazing team of master carpenters took it from there and created one of the coolest places in the city that is simply more than we could have dreamed. If you want creativity along with impeccable workmanship, hire these guys.
Aaron was a critical part in our new build-out not only in the building itself, but in the creativeinput as well! He was always very attentive and gave full attention to my ideas and creative needs. His entire team took pride and care with their work and I loved working with them. Our space turned out great and we are constantly getting compliments on the creativity of the work as well as the execution. I would highly recommend Aaron Ochoa for any building needs you may have.
When we purchased our diamond in the rough of a fixer upper, we had a very specific vision for the remodel. After meeting with Aaron, I knew we found the man and the team for the job. Even in that very first meeting, we went over every inch of the house together and I knew he understood what we wanted to accomplish. Aaron, Lesley and everyone on the Ochoa Bros. team is so passionate about what they do and take so much pride in their craftsmanship. It shows. Simple as that. This is a team with a true eye for design and you get so much more than a cookie cutter contractor with them. You get a team who will bring your project to life. Most people finish and renovation and swear they’re never live through one again... This experience made us want to do it again. We could not be more proud of our home.
The experience with OCB has been really great. I’m able to put a lot of faith in those guys to go in there and use their best judgment to do things when they don’t have an answer from me and I can always count on them to be there. It’s nice to have somebody like that.
Last year we began exploring opportunities in the Nashville market. We found a prefect spot to open the Jack Daniel’s Nashville General store. We had a great space and design; we were introduced to Aaron and his team and there was an immediate connection. Ochoa brothers not only executed the plan but contributed to the enhancement of the plan bringing in historic timbers for the counter and using live edge shelves on our displays. As usual we were under a tight timeline and Ochoa helped us meet our goals. I am thrilled to recommend Aaron and his team.
Aaron Ochoa is a wonderful contractor to work with. He cares a great deal about the quality and integrity of the homes he works on and is always careful to present any issues along with thoughtful recommendations on how best to proceed. Use him. You won’t be disappointed.
After more than 35 years working with many contractors on both small renovations and big projects ($8 million), I have never worked with a better contractor! Our project with Ochoa Bros was about $30,000 condo renovation, including painting, electrical, porcelain fireplace surround, lighting, demolition of flooring, building a wall and door, and many small tasks. The Project Lead (Aaron) was great to work with, totally unflappable, a problem solver (of problems caused by others!), and a great scheduler and supervisor for his teams. His project advice was helpful and appropriately cost-sensitive. He communicates well by email, text and phone (which with others has been an issue, believe it or not!). His workers arrived on time, worked with minimal noise, were courteous and respectful of neighbors, cleaned up common areas and the work site well, and did quality work. The project was done on time and within budget. I highly recommend!
We needed someone who could convert our attic into a workable office & studio, connect two sections of the house that were disconnected and design and remodel our childrens bedrooms and living space. After viewing the impressive work of Aaron Ochoa, my wife & I felt we had found the man for our job. We hired Aaron and in the fall of 2007 he commenced a work that would take him nearly a year to complete.We were very pleased with the remodel and Aaron”s attention to detail and his design sense . We recommend Aaron for contracting, design and remodeling.
Ochoa Brothers Construction were the GC on the master bathroom renovation in my 100+ year old Queen Anne house in East Nashville. Aaron and his staff came highly recommended from a neighbor across the street, as we had a very tight schedule to meet between Thanksgiving and Christmas. As a commercial architect, I had a very specific vision for the project and Aaron was very intuitive in realizing the overall concept, the detail level I expected, and how to implement the plan on short notice. As with any house this old, many unforeseen issues arose with the existing structure and we always collaborated on the best approach to solve each problem. Aaron has a great attitude, wonderful attention to detail and we worked as a team throughout the project. I would definitely recommend Ochoa Brothers for future projects.
Working with Aaron and the Ochoa team was an amazing experience! From concept to creation, Ochoa Bros were hands on and high touch every step of the way. The end result was a beautiful and functional space that both the staff and clients were extremely pleased with. I’d gladly recommend Ochoa Bros to anyone looking for a professional and attentive design and building team.
