We asked OGC to renovate our century old home and they offered fairly competitive pricing compared to some other companies. We had brought our own designs with us from Design First (RIP Friedemann Weinhardt) and they agreed to do the renovation based off our designs. It was accommodating of them to agree to work with our designs and drawings as this is not typically the case. They work with an excellent cabinet contractor, and we hired our own stairs and flooring guys. In the end, the renovation took a lot longer than originally anticipated but the finished product speaks for itself.
We replaced pretty much everything inside the house from insulation, plumbing, HVAC, electrical, flooring, cabinets, walls, ceiling, bathrooms, closets, etc. Literally everything. This project required a lot of TLC and Brad Newsham of OGC did a fantastic job (once he took over the project midway).
The project started off slowly and there were a lot of issues when you do a major renovation on a very old house. Demolition and removing structural walls, replacing it with a new beam took almost 6 months. There were some project management shuffling but in the end we ended up with Brad.
Once Brad came on the project, everything started to move with some momentum. There were problems with renovation literally every step of the way. The basement needed a sump pump, the base plumbing was rotting, tiling needed to be re-done, HVAC needed to be re-done, etc. Brad (and OGC) approached every problem with transparency and did not exaggerate timelines. He also made sure the work was done right. If a subcontractor did not do the original job correctly, he was willing to incur the costs of redoing it correctly. Which is exactly what you want from your general contractor. The project certainly had its fair share of bad luck, but it was refreshing to have someone that cared about your project and paid attention the details. We did have some good luck as some of the subcontractors for cabinets, flooring, stairs, tiling, and HVAC were top of the line.
I've attached some before and after pictures of the renovation. My project took about 1.5 years, but in the end it was very much worth it. I certainly think OGC can help with your project, just be prepared to be in for a fun ride :)
