A review for Olympic Kitchens Inc
I contacted Olympic Kitchens just before our reno was to begin and I was connected with Andrea Panacci, who is one of their space designers. Over the next 6 months, Andrea and I worked closely together to design our kitchen, our living room built-ins and our entrance bench. Every one of our meetings was on-time and professional and Andrea had fantastic ideas on how to work our space into the kitchen we wanted. Her recommendations, even when not aligned with what I thought was best, were always better in the end. She has done it and knows how it will look so I trusted her and was not disappointed. Our living room built-ins were a bit more of a challenge given our bar fridge and spacing but they turned out better than we would have imagined. The finish product was of high quality (everything was rift-cut walnut so obviously somewhat of a challenge to work with) and the craftsmanhsip was superb. Installation, though it was delayed due to circumstances outside of Olympic's control, was excellent and the gentlemen installing were very professional. I cannot recommend this company and their employees and owners enough. Thanks so much to the Olympic team to help make our dream home a reality!!!0 of 0 people found this review helpful.
A review for Bravehart Building Design & Build
Laura from Bravehart was very accomodating with our schedule from our very first meeting. We discussed what we wanted in a home and for our lifestyle and we gave her some ideas of what we like. After several meetings, she came up with an initial plan of our additions. With a bit of tweeking, we quickly came to a plan of what we wanted. She had some excellent ideas, particularly with the kitchen layout which we will implement in the next few years over which we will do our reno. Laura and Alex, on contract with Bravehart for drawings and permits, worked to get the permits in and stayed on top of the City employees when the permits were getting stalled for no apparent reason. They were also quick to come up with solutions to some of the issues the City had. Overall, for the layout, plans and permit work, we were happy with Bravehart and would recommend them to friends.
The project is a very interesting one and we look forward to seeing the end result. Designing so that you can build in Phases is a great approach which works for many of our clients.
