Mike Sharp transformed my 1880 home from droopy parquet floors & low stucco ceilings into an elegant open concept house that could easily be featured in House & Home or Architectural Digest.
After having received three proposals and met with three contractors, I choose Mike Sharp Design Build for my renovation.
The main floor was torn down to its bare bones. Floors were leveled and wiring was re-organized. 9 foot ceilings with recessed lighting, a feature brick wall, steel staircase, new Ikea kitchen and all new oak floors were installed. Mikes recommendation to install walnut support beams and crown molding added integrity, character and elegance to the living room/dining room area. My favourite feature is that my living/room dining room/kitchen area is an open concept, but you cannot visibly see any of the appliances in the kitchen. The appliances are all hidden and no one will see the mess I've created when I have guests. A very clever concept that I'm glad I listened to.
On the upper level, all floors were leveled and new oak floors installed along with a new railing. A complete new bathroom with floor to ceiling mirror, heated floors and rain shower was installed.
The end results were elegant, well thought through and much better then I could have possibly imagined. Mike’s 20 years experience, knowledge of design, function and trades were skills that I came to trust and respect with the push and pull of any renovation.
Mike is a great communicator and has an excellent team of professional craftsmen & women who are friendly, skilled and respectful. I am already planning phase 2 of my renovation (five years from now) and hope to hire Mike & his team again.
