Thank you very much for your review and more importantly your putting trust in us to design and build your project, especially with you and your family out of the country for most of the project. We were lucky to work with you and are very proud of the work we did for you.
Thank you for your kind words! We've done several projects for the Lind family, and it's always a pleasure to work with you all. You were a great client! By taking an active role and pointing out any concerns early enough in the process that we could present alternatives and/or make adjustments in a timely manner, we agree that our collaboration yielded a project that is even better than originally designed.
During construction we created some mockups for things you weren't sure about, like the arched opening between the Kitchen and Dining Room. You were open to our input, for instance taking our suggestions to extend backsplash tile to the ceiling and add more LED lighting to the tray ceiling in the Dining Room. The adjacent pergola and deck weren't part of the original scope or budget, but had been problematic in the connection between the Kitchen and outdoors, in an area where the weather allows for outdoor living for much of the year. You accepted our proposal to rebuild the pergola once we'd started construction, which made the whole indoor/outdoor aspect of the project come together.

Thank you! We're happy that you're happy with your new front entry.
I remember you had a leaky deck and I asked you to send some photos. I was hesitant to come out since you originally wanted just to replace the failing elements and we typically do more extensive projects. After meeting you at your home, I could see it was going to be a bigger project than you’d been hoping for. I’m glad we were able to come up with a new design that is safe, functional and complements the Tudor style of your home.
