“When I look back on our remodeling experience, there are several positive things I recall. Initially, John was great at getting a sense of how we function within our home. We started our process by telling him that ‘we love the neighborhood and the location, but our house needs a family room; where can we put it?’ He was great at brainstorming ideas. He came up with a very efficient remodel that basically split our living room in half horizontally and made the space into two rooms rather than one, with an unused elevated ceiling area. It feels like the room was always there, a perfect fit.
During the process, John kept us informed so we could manage both my husband’s allergies and my three-year-old daughter’s inquisitiveness. He understands that he ‘becomes a member of your family’ for a couple months and you still have to get to work and function within your home. He and his staff tried hard to make sure it was a safe environment at the end of the day. He consulted us along the way to make sure [the remodel] was progressing as we’d envisioned, occasionally asking if we’d like minor modifications or adding something we hadn’t thought of before. He was always thinking a couple steps ahead.
Bottom line: remodeling is messy, inconvenient, and not a lot of fun. If you’re not ready for that, don’t do it. When you know what you want and have the patience to see it through, give John a call. You’ll be glad you did.”
