Thanks once again to a client’s referral, I have been busy drawing plans, obtaining permits and am now remodeling a couple’s existing master bedroom and bathroom suite. My new clients were feeling cramped in their existing (and outdated) space. So with a small expansion into the backyard we are now making a very nice improvement to the clients’ self-described “Strip Mall Mediterranean” home’s layout and functionality.
The clients’ prior remodel had left them with less-than-favorable memories of a project that dragged out interminably when their contractor took on additional work, leaving them sliding down the contractor’s priority list. In addition, they had hesitations about the local building permit process and also wanted to obtain a detailed building plan tied to a firm working budget before breaking ground.
We were able to obtain a building permit for them quickly and get the project started as scheduled. Progress has been steady and our execution of their detailed plans precise, all while flexibly incorporating the clients’ finish products and design ideas, making for a fun project for all. I know I can’t wait to see all the unique ideas and finishes brought to fruition.
In the meantime I have attached a link below to view the progress and some comments from our client.
“Eric has been easy to work with, receptive to our design ideas and especially patient with our sometimes unrealistic wishes. His creative eye is exceptional. It’s a pleasure to work with someone who can both share our vision of the project and, at the same time, move it along in a timely and efficient manner.”
