Mo is an amazing talented carpenter. He built me a walk in closet from scratch in 3 days. He provided the design and ideas on how to make best use of the small space I had available & I couldn’t have been happier with the results. He is very professional and precise in his work and very reasonable in pricing. I am so impressed with quality of his work that I am having him make me a custom built vanity and bookcase as well. He also installed my hardwood flooring and cabinets which were very complicated to install. I highly recommend his services. Be sure to give him advance notice though as he is extremely busy but the results are definitely worth the wait.

I hired Hugh to paint my Living & Dining rooms. I discovered that he is an artist with a designer's eye! He helped me select a classic color and the rooms look beautiful! Being experienced in the business, he helped me organize my projects and recommended an outstanding Electrician & Carpenter team who installed recessed lighting, hardwood floors, crown moulding and baseboards. In addition, he has painted my kitchen & bathroom, transforming their appearance! I am so pleased with his work! He pays attention to detail and insures that jobs are done right the first time! He is trustworthy and demonstrated leadership qualities when the teams were coordinating their work. Hugh is also a Handyman and I have a few more projects I'd like completed around the house. Of course he'll be the one I hire! His prices are very fair for the quality of work.

When we were searching for a contractor to replace all of the doors and windows throughout our home, we asked dozens of friends, neighbors, and even other contractors for recommendations. Your name was the one that kept reoccurring as the one who people considered to be the best. A door and window supplier told us that if we really cared about our home, we should hire you. We received far more than we paid for, or expected. From the very first day, your skilled carpenters carried themselves in a remarkably professional fashion. Before starting work, they introduced themselves to all of our neighbors, informing them as to the work they were about to undertake, and asking about any special noise or parking concerns. Some of my neighbors actually thanked me for sending them (even though I tried to explain that I had no idea they had done this). When they began work, they complied with every request we made of them, no matter how small, and they seemed to take great pleasure in doing whatever it took to please us. Our children became so fond of them that our 3 year old actually came home from school with pictures that he had painted just for them! Seeing the final product was the most pleasant experience of all. You had taken our ideas, listened to and understood our concerns and desires, and made them and elegant reality. Neither of us ever expected the work to be performed as thoughtfully and skillfully as what we now enjoy. We cannot thank you enough for what you and your craftsman have done for us and our home.

I needed a new fence carpenter to build a fence and add a wall inside my home that was being remodeled. The fence looked beautiful and the wall was done well so I decided to ask if they also did bathroom or kitchen remodeling work. Bill said that he had a wide range of work he could perform or manage for me so I started small and had them redo a small bathroom. The bathroom work included cabinets, bathtub, shower walls, new travertine floor and painting. After the bathroom was complete and saving up for a few weeks we moved on to the kitchen. He assisted in the design and layout with the designer. The work took several weeks but it was beautiful and was much better than the drawings. After several months of work on my home, it is perfect with there help. I can't thank them enough and will pass there info on to friends.

Anthony put custom wainscoting in our entryway and two bathrooms. It is flawless, and he easily overcame some obstacles that other carpenters expressed concern about, including curves in the wall. Very talented, professional; I felt comfortable leaving my house with him working here. Highly recommend!
