My name is Robert Hansen and I’m the owner of Bella Cosa Construction.

My passion is art and design. I’m a visual person and I love to create and re-create, which is why I ended up in the construction industry, and also why I’m good at what I do.

I enjoy creating so much that I formed a side business making custom cake designs. The company, Is It Really Cake?, has become a rewarding artistic outlet and a great way for me to challenge my creativity.

My love of art and design was born out of my first job after high school as a warehouseman for Disney. In 1974, I moved to New York and volunteered for a global printing organization for 10 years, which included book making, art design and illustration. I was married by 1981, and by 1985 had relocated to the Bay Area to pursue an interest in construction, first as a handyman and, by 1990, as a licensed general contractor. By 1991 my family was complete with two kids and a loving wife.

My interest in art and design has a great influence on my construction work. I am able to visualize end results, offer suggestions for both practical and aesthetic improvements, and execute projects by utilizing innovative techniques, even boosting the self-confidence of those who want to fix minor things themselves. In addition, I have a knack for trouble shooting challenging situations.
