We recently completed our second renovation project with Mike and are extremely excited with the results. Mike renovated our basement over 5 years and we continue to receive compliments on the space. We added a kitchen and Mike worked with our kitchen manufacturer to ensure the space was ready for the kitchen installation. We continue to enjoy the space and have had many family and friend gatherings in the basement. My kids love the space too and have enjoyed a few parties themselves (no parents allowed-lol).
Most recently we embarked on an even bigger project; renovating the kitchen. The discussion started with replacing a few cracked floor tiles. Then we decided since we are replacing the tiles, we might as well replace the kitchen (25 years old but still in good condition). Over the next few months the scope of the project continued to expand with Mike’s recommendations. He definitely saw the potential for the space before we did (ie. lets take a wall down here, lets add a beam here,….) —things we didn’t think of on our own. So after some long discussions, we said YES to a full out renovation of the first floor.
The results have been phenomenal; Mike helped us create a large open space which resulted in a kitchen much larger than we initially had planned on. He brought in professional trades that got the job done efficently.
And let’s not forget the staircase—“no way” we said to adding that in. However, once we saw how beautiful and modern the space was turning into, we couldn’t leave those builder stairs as is; we had the stairs sanded and re-stained, as well as the family room, living and dining floors to match. The space definitely looks complete now. We continue to recommend Mike’s contracting services to our family and friends; many of which have already hired Mike for their own projects.
