Thank you for your heartfelt words and being open minded to consider the alternate layout for your space! It has been a pleasure to work with you integrating your wish list items; I know you'll appreciate the extra details as you are enjoying your kitchen for years to come. I look forward to seeing the finished "coastal zen" transformation, many thanks.
I love a challenge and was thrilled to incorporate the colorful wish list items for your sweet efficient space! (Custom blue cabinets, walnut counters, nautical accents... so FUN!) Thank you so much for your kind words, I look forward to sharing photos, the integrated drain board and cheerful retro-style refrigerator are among my favorites.
Thank you for taking the time to express your frustration, it sickens me that you’re upset as my goal is always delighted clients regardless of the budget. I am truly very upset that I fell short of that expectation.
When I meet with prospective clients, as was the case with you, we discuss goals and plans as well as the budget. For your master bathroom renovation, you wanted many changes including a dramatic re-design with plumbing being relocated, new tile flooring, shower walls, fixtures, cabinets, counters, storage etc. I was concerned with your budget constraints and I shared with you some resources regarding typical similar project costs as well as a budgeting tool to help you as you made decisions to allocate available funds etc. After reviewing all of this, you chose to retain my services for the re-design of the space even though the documents (Remodeling Magazine’s 2017 Cost V. Value Report ) I shared with you revealed much higher costs than your initial budget.
As you have suggested, I referred you to an excellent contractor, and after multiple plan revisions, the contractor visited the site with multiple trades people in order to accurately quote the labor portion of your project. Obviously, that cannot be done before the detailed scope of work is defined, and his estimate came in higher than anticipated.
Projects get scaled back and changed occasionally as customer’s dream spaces don’t match their spend limits. In your case both you and your spouse were emailing the contractor and me, however, it was not clear that some emails were intended for me, rather than the contractor. I am sure this added to your frustration.
When I work with clients and purchase materials for them from reputable vendors, I carefully consider how each piece fits with the next in terms of functionality, design and, of course, budget. Because you purchased your own items from various on-line sources I simply cannot take responsibility for pieces that were incompatible.
Again, I am sincerely distressed that you were not completely delighted with the services I provided.
Thank you for your kind words, has it been that long? Sheesh, time flies! It was a pleasure to assist with your beach front home and all three projects went flawlessly! What a treat to help with your kitchens and bathrooms, it's so nice when technology works to our advantage, pretty easy to send plans and communicate electronically. I'm delighted you are enjoying your "not-so-new-now" home.
It was a privilege and a pleasure to work with you, thank you for your kind words. I so appreciate the time you took to carefully consider my ideas in order to best incorporate them with the long term vision for your home as your family changes over the coming years. I'm delighted you're enjoying the space and happy to see your project has been featured as a "Kitchen of the Week" here on Houzz!
