Working with Chris was excellent, from start to finish. We hired him to redo our entire kitchen - cabinets, countertop, sink and faucet, floors, paint, even removing a couple of walls to relocate the pantry. He always gave clear updates to how things were going, and when we encountered the inevitable speed bumps that come with any project of this size, he handled them with professional efficiency to keep things moving forward. His attention to detail is outstanding, and his unwillingness to do anything less than a top quality job is something rare and wonderful. We love our new kitchen. Even better, Chris actually managed to come in under our budget and estimate. Recommended without hesitation for any job, big or small.

Houzz Review
Chris was easy to collaborate with. I brought him my ideas and he was able to iterate and refine them with me as he used his 3D modeling software and his knowledge of materials. Chris is a good communicator, and brings integrity to his work. He is a special combination of artist and engineer, which to me was important. He knows that his projects affects people’s workflow and day to day life. He puts the user of the space at the center of the problem solving process. Thanks Chris for your quality work and collaborative spirit!

I hired Chris to “liven” up my space after my divorce. I needed something new to come home to and Chris really exceeded my expectations. I have always had a hard time finding something in the store and what it would look like in my house, but with Chris’ fancy software he was able to drop it in, and see instantly what it would look like. He is worth every penny just for not having to deal with returns! Highly recommend!

I had very specific ideas and expectations in my head for our project. I tend to be very picky and have high expectations. Chris 100% delivered on all fronts. After the initial consultation, there were several back and forth communications to determine we were on the same page before install. It ended up being a larger project than intended but he got it done and it is PERFECT! Not only will we be using him in the future, but also recommending to friends and neighbors!
