It's just a little 1000 sq ft bungalow built in the early 1960s but the changes that it's undergoing are amazing. Out with the worn carpet, in with laminate flooring. Out with the aged linoleum, in with the tile. Out with the old kitchen and in with new - totally new - plumbing, electrical and cabinetry. Reconfigured, the new kitchen has more storage and more counter space, and looks wonderful, of course. All of it has been made possible by Mario and his crew.
I've never felt that this was too small a job for Mario. I am treated well and listened to. Importantly, I am kept informed of what is happening and involved when decisions must be made. All of the workers, both his own and those contracted in, have been polite and done their jobs well. Mario expects good workmanship from everyone he hires and is onsite almost daily to ensure the work is progressing to his exacting standards.
Is the process disruptive? Of course, it involved moving everything on the main floor and going without a kitchen for a few weeks. Is it expensive? Yes, but now I don't feel I have to move to be in the house I want. Is it worth it? Absolutely, the house is like new and when it comes time to sell the increase in equity will help offset the cost. Is Mario the contractor I would recommend? Without any hesitation. In fact, even though the finishing touches are just now being done in the kitchen, we're already talking about what to do about the garage!
