"I've known and worked with Dan Compton since 1995 in Sedona, Arizona. At that time he was the lead contractor on the construction of a 6,000 sq. ft. mansion outside of Sedona for a client. It was a huge ongoing project for several years.
Dan showed his general knowledge of all phases of construction from foundations to the very demanding finish work that was required on this structure. He's an excellent carpenter and a good general organizer for large projects. This project included extensive timber large framing from reclaimed railroad trestle lumber. It was a challenge Dan was always up to.
During this period I was hired as a framing and finishing contractor. I have held a general contractor's license since 1988 and have over 30 years of experience in construction."
"I have known Dan since 1983 where we worked together on construction and development projects. He built many multi- million dollar homes on Oahu's prestigious Hawaii Loa Ridge. He handled many different phases of construction having some heavy excavating equipment. His company(s) did sitework, foundations, framing and finish and were well known for their attention to detail. At one time he had crews in excess of 25 employees and many subcontractors and specialty subs as well. His homes were unique and extremely well built.His detail to quality was impeccable. I also watched him build out a 20+ unit residential subdivision of $375,000- $475,000 range of homes in Kaneohe Hawaii called Alawiki Heights. I can highlyrecommend his quality construction, his experience in many facets of construction, and his ability to work well with people."
Projects on this website were constructed by one of Dan Compton's companies in Arizona or Hawaii. Dan has been the owner/principal in both the construction companies and in some cases the development company that organized the projects. The Hawaii projects were done by his construction and development and excavation companies. References below

"In July of 2004 I bought a single family residence in Cottonwood, AZ. With Dan Compton as the general contractor I had the house transformed into a triplex. This involved separating the gas, water, and electric since each apartment had to be on it's own meters. This was a fairly complex operation because different parts of the house had been built at different times. Two kitchens, one bathroom and two swamp coolers were added, a laundry room was created as well as numerous other improvements.
Several months later I hired Dan to transform what used to be an old cow dairy into an art studio for myself since I live in one of the apartments. This project included putting on a whole new roof with skylights, creating a new wall for one side of the building, leveling out the floor with cement, and cutting through the cement walls to add doors and windows.
This is a very beautiful and magical house that needed Dan's artistic eye to maintain it's original character. Dan is very creative and inventive and does an exceptional job of creating beautiful environments. His knowledge and skill level are excellent, and he is very well suited as a general contractor because he is a natural leader. Everyone who sees the house is very impressed at the results and many have said they want to buy it if I ever decide to sell. It could not have been what it is without Dan, and I can highly recommend him to produce great results with any kind of construction project."
"I have known Dan Compton since the 1990's and I have seen him and his company produce excellent quality projects for many years. He is very gifted at gathering talented people around him and creating beautiful homes. We sold some of his projects and our clients were very pleased. He is talented in many phases of construction and has an eye for detail. He and I did some joint ventures together as well. His crews were great workers and a joy to know."
"I have known and worked with Dan for over twenty-five years. I know him to be an industrious and hard worker as well as diligent. He also assembles good crews. Having been a builder and inspector for over thirty years, I know the difference between the good and the not-so-good. I'm sure you will be pleased to have Dan build for you."
