My Life Story

The reason why I founded Eano

As a young girl whose parents worked in construction, I grew up around builders. I spent my summers playing at construction sites and watching mixer trucks pour concrete — not the childhood that most people consider “typical”, especially for girls! But I loved it, and wanted to spend time with my parents.

Most of the time, my parents left for work before I woke up and got back after I fell asleep. When customers called, my parents would leave to meet with them, no matter the time. I admired their compassion and incredible work ethic; it’s a huge part of what inspired me to start Eano.

The other major inspiration happened when I bought my own house in 2017. I heard people talking about California ADUs and after doing some research, found it’s a great way to earn passive income.

I ran into many issues while managing my own project - it was very a painful process. Everything in the residential renovation space has remained the same for a long long time.

I ran into many issues while managing my own project.

What I didn’t realize was that I had embarked on a nightmare:
  • I struggled to find trustworthy referrals at a reasonable price.
  • Timeline was never provided and quotes were all over the place: from $40k to over $100k.
  • My architect and contractor often ignored my calls. I had to send over 150 emails to get my own permit approved.
  • It took nearly 350 days to get my permit done, delaying the project by over 2 months.
  • My contractor did not communicate with me well, costing me over $1,000 on wrong materials.
  • And worst, I learned that my contractor was not at all reliable until it was too late.

I ended up wasting over $1,000 on wrong materials.

I sent 150 emails and many Bay Area remodeling companies didn’t pick up my calls.

I hated the process and wanted to save other people from the nightmare I went through. So I decided to build a one-stop solution that would streamline remodeling (and save homeowners money).

At first, I was simply helping my friends with their ADUs or bathroom remodels. Eventually I got more and more requests and Eano took off from there.

We have helped many customers remodel their homes with our unique processes and software.
