When you’re the 4th owner of a 1940’s house, which has gone through additions and renovations, you’re bound to have a few surprises when you decide to update your kitchen.
The last time the kitchen was updated was in 1997. It had the dark wood and dark granite fashionable then and the galley space kitchen looked even smaller than it was. We knew it was past time for another update.
We chose to work with David after we saw the new kitchen that David remodeled for a close friend of ours. But it wasn’t just her kitchen that convinced us that David was the right choice, though. From our first conversation, we realized that David understands design and listens to what we’re saying. For example, my husband and David worked together to come up with the idea for replacing an old cabinet with a slimmer china cabinet that opened up the space and created easier access to the family room.
Once the project started, David brought in a lot of good people to work on our kitchen. They respected the time limit for this project and got it done. And they were also so mindful of the fact that we lived in the house through the renovation – everything got cleaned up every day. There was never a mess.
In particular, I was so impressed with Angel Mendez who was in charge of the construction crew. He was determined to get everything right, even if it meant redoing some things.
We both work so we had to rely on David to supervise and manage the project. David was at the house almost every day, checking on every detail and addressing any concerns immediately. And he always kept us in the loop about what was going on.
