We hired Norseman to help us transform our new home into a place that made more sense for us. Our first project with them began just before the COVID pandemic hit in March 2020. We were completely renovating our basement, turning it into a 2-bedroom basement apartment and a family room, powder room, and laundry room for our use. Kris and our project manager helped guide us through all the issues that arose with the pandemic and lack of supplies and construction crews. Despite all those issues, the project ended close to schedule and is beautiful.
Our second project started much quicker than we anticipated thanks to the knowledge of Norseman’s architect and how to create designs that suit city permitting. This project was a new build 2.5 car garage with a 680sq feet laneway suite on top. It was done through the second and third wave of the pandemic, and again, despite some supply struggles, the project was completed close to budget and close to the proposed timeline.
Throughout both projects, we were impressed with Norseman’s communication and professionalism. If we encountered any issues, they were very responsive and really do strive to keep the homeowner happy - even extremely difficult to please Type A’s like me!!
I recommend Norseman to others purely for the dependability and accountability. I know many who have hired other companies and been stuck living in an Airbnb for months longer than projected while their project sat not being worked on. We didn’t encounter those issues with Norseman and if a trade couldn’t show up on a specific day, they made it up somewhere else.
We have our third and final large reno project scheduled in a couple of years time - a second story addition. We will most certainly turn to Kris and the Norseman crew to get that done.
