Bear Creek began in response to a need in the construction industry for good, quality cleaning services geared to serve local Commercial and Residential Contractors.  Initially Bear Creek offered only cleaning after a construction project was complete and ready for final occupancy.

Today Bear Creek offers Design/Build Home Improvement Services to transform backyards and exterior living spaces for homeowners in the greater Shenandoah Valley, Charlottesville City and Surrounding Counties.

Just recently Bear Creek has started building out tiny Studio Trailer Units.  These units are designed for the mobile entrepreneur, studio artist, event planner or for anyone needing a mobile office or studio space to work on location or from their backyard.  The possibilities are endless!  You can learn more about our Studio Trailers Here.
