I had been wanting to renovate my main floor for years but was always hesitant to get started. The job would require removing a load bearing wall; the thought of that alone stressed me out. I had talked to other contractors in my area and they would tell me the job couldn't be done or that it would cost me double what I had budgeted. No one wanted to think outside of the design box, except Marko. I contacted Marko and discussed the scope of work and my concerns based on what I had been told during previous meetings. We arranged a meeting and after checking out my space he assured me what I wanted done, could in fact be done and for a reasonable price. Marko created an open concept living space complete with a brand new kitchen that has changed how I feel about living in this house - I actually enjoy cooking in my kitchen now! I can happily entertain friends and family without feeling cramped or like my guests are on top of each other. The space is finally functional and to say I am happy with the end result would be an understatement. The process was long and strenuous as I anticipated it would be and as is expected when living through a major renovation, but Marko was calm, cool and professional all along the way. He listened to my wants and needs and with his keen eye for design and attention to detail, he worked with me to create the space I have so longed for. Some days, especially the ones when I was losing my sanity and blowing up his phone with text messages, I'm surprised he didn't fire me. Instead, he always talked me down and assured me things would be fine and it would be worth it in the end. It was. Thanks Marko! Looking forward to phase two!
