During demolition, the client expressed her desire to have more space in the family room. Working together the Gil’s approved an idea to reverse a closet thereby sealing off the wall to provide access to more useable space within the family room and new closet. We also imbedded plywood to attach/secure a TV wall mount system and provided Mr. Gil with a new electrical supply.
Outcome: Practically, we captured more closet space by reversing it, secured a flexible shelving system, attached a new closet door and provide the Gil’s with access to critical HVAC diverters which were buried by a previous contractor.
Mrs. Olson said: ” Lon, I have been completely pleased with the work you did on my home. It is too bad all the renovations were to sell the home because it would have been nice to enjoy the work you did. Not only was the work done to my specifications, but your recommendations and improvements on my plans were excellent, your work was thorough, you were clean, and respected my home. I will definitely recommend you to my friends and neighbors. Thanks again for all of your help.”

We presented a bid to refinish eight decks for a condo association and were informed that someone offered to do it for 40% less than us. I reworked the numbers and felt that our price was reasonable. As a cost saving measure The Condo Association selects the lower bidder. Conclusion: the decks need to be redone; the contractor splashed stain/sealer onto the roof, metal flashings, gutter, AC unit, door threshold(s), painted wood trim and recently painted metal railing. Stain/Sealer cannot be removed from a rubber roof, and it will cost the association far more than our original estimate to complete the remaining repairs. BTW, lowest bidder did not have insurance.
