Sam and Carmen’s discontent clearly stems from budget and construction costs, not design.
We discuss and stress budget with clients throughout every design phase, Sam and Carmen are no exception.
The problem here though, is not the bad advice of one contractor, the increase in scope, or the rising construction costs, it is the lack of insightful, meaningful communication between Sam and Carmen and Synthesis Design.
I wish they would have communicated this to us directly, but at least we get to receive it through their Houzz review. Communication is king. We will strive to be better.
From the first time I met you both, I was confident that your house would transform to more accurately reflect your personalities and lifestyle. I love the transformation and Ken and I are thrilled not only with the result, but more importantly, your reaction to the result. Hosting Christmas dinners, Grey Cup parties, birthday celebrations and weddings are all in store for you and Don now. Sorry Don!!
Thank you for your kind comments. It was a pleasure to work with a couple that was as focused on their kids well being as their own. in the end, the project was successful because you had a realistic wish list, clear goals, and a love for the process. Well done!
I love the transformation both inside and out. The exterior really only need some make up to create a more modern aesthetic, however the "wow" factor occurs once you step inside your home. You and Doug were were both a pleasure to work with, you because you were very proactive and wanting to make the perfect decision on items small and large, and Doug because he encouraged you to fly. He had faith in you, you had faith in us, and together you all have a great family home. Congratulations.
