Lexington: Whole House Renovation

Every once in a while you become great friends with a client. This renovation project was one of those times.

Our client was gracious, decisive with her choices, and she trusted us every step of the way. We helped her navigate her options and connected her with other trusted specialty contractors who would come alongside us to make her vision a reality.

She fed our guys pizza a time or two, so we surprised her with flowers, wine, and cake on her birthday. She made the final play, however, when she invited us over for a homemade steak lunch well after her project was complete. Connecting with her has resulted in what we hope to be a lifelong friendship. If you’re reading, dear friend, we love you! Thank you for your confidence and trust.

Client Review

While I wouldn’t look forward to another renovation of this size, if I had another renovation to do, James would be the first person I’d call. And, if needed a design opinion—Casey is my go-to.
