"The whole team was fantastic. Michael won my confidence by helping to think through color and flow options. Then he selected a team of his employees that would be a good fit for us. We had some pretty tight timelines in which to get work done before moving into our new home, and they executed on the timelines we were left with given all other activities going on. Lastly, they showed the utmost respect for me, my family and our new home. Tremendous team effort. I would recommend them to everyone for any size project."
