I hired Dave to make us a "catio" or outdoors enclosure for our cat. The project required that he design a unique structure for our house. First, let me say that we are entirely happy with it. But second and maybe more importantly, we were very happy with the process. Dave came and took measurements and designed a wooden structure for us. When our landlords asked that we not have wood touching the house because of termites, Dave redid the entire design to be constructed in PVC piping. He had to remeasure everything because the cost of the materials was higher. However, he still came in under our agreed budget, even with the redesign. The process involved me and my husband a little bit more than we were expecting, but in the end, it was worth it, and Dave even returned to add a latch to the inside of the catio so that we could open, close, and secure the door more easily from either side (yes, this catio even has a hinged door!).
Dave mad a video of the construction of the catio and I encourage you to watch it. It was a lot of fun, and we couldn't be more happy with the results.
