Dan responded to our initial inquiry very promptly and provided a thorough cost estimate. Throughout the process he patiently guided us and most importantly (for me) kept us on track. He pointed us to great vendors to select the fixtures and tile and his architect was wonderful helping to select the most appropriate colors which greatly reduced my anxiety. Dan's team completed the job in the time promised and their work was beautiful. The bathroom is gorgeous! We will definitely use him again - maybe the kitchen next year?!"
