We got several bids from recommendations since it was such a big job – but we immediately knew Tim was the right one. We could immediately tell that this was a man who took great pride in his work. He took us to see a live example of his work, and this just confirmed our initial impression.
Throughout the whole process Tim was knowledgeable, patient and worked with us to find the best solution for our needs. He has a keen eye for clean, modern design, which is exactly what we wanted. Additionally, Tim was always two steps ahead of us in thinking about how we would LIVE in the house – as an example, which way the bathroom door would swing so it wouldn’t interfere with closets, where the trash can would go in the bathrooms, where the kitty litter boxes would live in the house, etc. These are all the things you DON’T think of when putting together your dream house, but are of the utmost importance.
Tim was never shy about letting you know his opinion, but I appreciated this as it was my first time remodel and forced me to think carefully about big decisions that could have been costly to redo. I often ended up taking his advice and was always glad that I did.
Tim is also the biggest perfectionist we know. He has such a high standards and takes such great pride in his work that he would never cut corners. There were definitely times during the process I would get frustrated at extra costs to fix a problem has been uncovered during the remodeling (i.e. uneven floor in our closet, stairs that didn’t meet code), but he always gave sound advice and reminded us to think about the long term. We’re so glad we listened and love our house – as does everyone who walks into the home. I never thought I’d be living in a house as beautiful as mind is now – and it’s thanks to Tim.
I don’t know if he’s the cheapest – but I do know that you won’t get anyone who is more honest and who does such beautiful, quality work.
As an addendum, we continue to be in contact with Tim – going to him for advice and additional work we want done (hard to stop improving once you’ve started!)
