It’s all in the details

I met Angi through mutual friends.  I first saw her house at a party she threw for one such friend and was amazed at the design and details.  I couldn’t get enough of the kitchen floor as it was so unique.  What I didn’t know at the time was that she designed and built it herself.

Angi Brittain has loved creating and building things all her life but she initially planned on being a doctor and has a bachelors in pre-medical sciences.  She graduated with a Masters Degree in Public Health with a specialty in Epidemiology and Biostatistics.  Angi was a manager of an environmental department with an environmental, architectural and construction firm.  In her spare time she continued to build things.  Over time Angi became intrigued with what was going on over in the construction department so she cross-trained.  Eventually she decided to go for her GC license and passed on the first sitting!  

Realizing the scope of her passion for her hobby Angi decided to start her own design-build general contracting company called The Eva Claire Corporation.  Her daughters were her inspiration as she wanted to teach them with hard work, integrity and determination you can build anything, literally!

Part of her core value: Integrity is the foundation on which we build.  Our Company is in the business of general contracting for one reason; because we love what we do.  We love to take a dream and build it into a tangible, livable, workable space.”

Angi has created many dreams spaces for her clients.  Her eye for detail and respecting her client’s budget is, to me, what makes her stand out in this business.   She even designed a bar for a client that displays over 500 beer bottles.  Check it out on her website at to see pictures.  The Eva Claire Corp. was also just featured in Angie’s List Magazine and is both a Registered Small Business Enterprise and a Certified Woman Owned Minority Women Owed Business.

I am hoping someday to use her services to add onto my house but until then I will enjoy hearing about her latest project.
