True professionals are as good as gold! I put off remodeling my home for years because I dreaded the hassle of dealing with contractors and designers. When I finally committed to having the work done, I went through at least 8 General Contractors and designers to find the right fit. Each of these was either overly expensive, or had overbearing personalities, or sounded like used car salesmen.... Until I connected with Byron Cuhna and Co. Byron runs a family operated construction company that handles all size jobs. Byron came in and helped my wife and I work through the design of a large addition 26x24 on with a two car garage and bedrooms/bath above it, as well as another 15x15 family room on the opposite side of the house. Byron not only gave us great design ideas, he helped us add features that would be more cost effective and efficient. Byron and his son Eric were on the job from start to finish, and made the experience of living in "construction" much more bearable, and at a price affordable enough that I can still pay my children's college tuition next year. I highly recommend Byron Cuhna construction, I will update this review with final before and after pictures of my house. Carmelo
I would use Bob to build my house. He cares about his workmanship and the quality is there Sold many of his homes and all my clients have been pleased!!
I am very happy with Concept 21. We have worked together on several projects now and look firward to more. I would recommend this company and their designers.
Umberto designed my family's home, and I fell in love with the space that he created. He designed a multi-story brick home with windows that appear to wrap around corners and stretch nearly floor to ceiling letting in as much of the Boston sunlight as appears in the sky. Umberto's talent is obvious in his ability to marry two opposite characteristics. He created an interior with high ceilings and skylights that gives one the feeling of space and air while at the same time creating little nooks in different areas of the home that are cozy places where you can read a book or listen to music. The unique design of our home also allows us to entertain many friends and family with ease but at the same time is just perfect for everyday living. I just love how our home feels.
Our house was a 1955 ranch-style house with 3 bedrooms, one bath, kitchen, and living/dining room that we moved into in 1995. We had been looking to add a second bathroom and had originally worked with an architect from NH to do a modest front and rear bump out to give us more room to fit in a second bathroom. This architect had to withdraw from the job and recommended David Kinsella of TBC. David initially made some modest changes to the plan that made sense. After some further discussion, in which my wife and I raised the possibility of a larger scale project to modernize the style of the house, David developed a plan that essentially rebuilt the house except for our previously remodeled kitchen and original foundation. This new plan converted our house into modern design with a more open floor plan, completely new roof line, loft space, re-finished basement (and the second bathroom). David was able to fit this into an only slightly expanded footprint in order to comply with town regulations. Throughout the process, David kept our budget in mind and would typically present different price options for us to choose from to allow us to come up with a reasonable comprise between price with style. In addition TBC worked with the town to make sure our design stayed within our zoning and conservation restrictions. After deciding to go ahead with the project, we interviewed several contractors and decided that TBC brought us the best value for our money and would also allow David to oversee the project as needed. We started the project in June 2011 and completed the project in May 2012. The project did take several months longer than expected, but did stay on budget. The major problem that occurred that delayed the project was that in the summer of 2011, the original subcontracted framers were being sent to other jobs by their boss even though TBC was told they would be coming to our job. Hence, instead of working full time on our job, they were working less than half time. Eventually TBC had to fire them and find a new contractor to step in. At the time we felt that TBC should have replaced them sooner, but perhaps this was difficult due to contractual obligations. (We also found this first group of framers were slobs who did not have much regard for the fact that we were still living in the house.) By the end of summer 2011, the house was not completely framed and roofed and number of rain storms (including hurricane Irene) slowed down progress further. In mid-October we were still living in the part of the house and we agreed at this point that we would move out to allow for a more efficient work flow. From this point construction generally proceeded ahead, except for a few delays do to weather and scheduling conflicts that arose for other subcontractors, no doubt due to the significant delay caused by the no-show framers. In the end the house is beautiful and works for us better than we could have imagined. While the house has not expanded much in terms of square feet, the open floor plan and high ceiling/roof line combined with increased natural lighting gives a much more expansive feeling inside. From the curb, the house has modern angular green metal roof with cedar siding and one has to look hard to find any resemblance to the original house. At the completion of of the project, TBC was very responsive to completing punch-list items and other minor issues that arose. While my wife and I certainly had stressful times during the renovation (and certainly did a lot of second guessing our decision to renovate rather than move), we always felt that David had a personal interest in getting the job done correctly and making sure that we were happy in the end. In that regard, David was very accessible by email or phone before, during, and after the work. In summary, David Kinsella provided the creativity to design a renovation plan that was truly transforming for our house and TBC was then able to see the plan through to successful completion.
In 2006 & 07 Hal & I were partners on several projects in resort areas of Maine. Hal designed and I managed construction of 3 houses and 6 condos. The spaces are amazing and really project you outside and the cost cutting details Hal introduced were great for the bottom line. Our timing could have been better in bringing them all to market in 2008. Hal's architectural vision is right up my alley and his skills and knowledge can only come from many years of experience. ~ Doug @ Zoë Design
We had an excellent experience with Stephanie Metz as architect of our house. She was considerate and patient throughout the process, which was important because we had input from several family members who will live there. She remained conscious of our goals and budget and managed to balance the two while providing us with a design everyone loved. I recommend her and would work with her again.
Gary and his crew was a pleasure to work with. We customized our matching wedding bands and just love them. They worked right within our budget and created something we know we'll enjoy for years to come. Thank you so much!
Humberto was a pleasure to work with. He is great at making sure that you consider variety of designs and styles which you may not have considered previously. He was very responsive and professional, and followed up with me to ensure I was pleased with how the construction went. I would highly recommend working with him!
We were able to work with Covel Studio in the design development and construction documentation of our projects in different locations, Not only the designs were very clean and smart, but the documentation was clear and very professional at less than half the cost of a local architect / designer. The drawings provided were good for permitting as well as construction estimating and the contractors love them!
Casey exhibits a level of understanding, professionalism and courtesy that is refreshing and comforting. We enlisted Casey to develop plans to remodel our recently purchased home in 2013 and she far surpassed our expectations. She provided several reasonable options within our budget that fit our lifestyle, and generated plans that our town and GC felt were detailed and precise. My husband and I could not be more happy with our home and we are so very lucky to have had the experience we did working with Casey. We highly recommend her for any architectural and design needs you might need.
Very professional & organized. I would highly recommend.
Jay did a great job helping us create a functional small addition that blends seamlessly with our 1930's colonial. The importance of feeling that space was always there was not lost on Jay, from the careful placement of windows to align with doorways in the existing home to matching the woodwork in both spaces, Jay did not disappoint! He worked closely with our contractor to ensure the plans were carried out and modified when needed. We couldn't be happier with the end result, including his recommendation for furnishings! Looking forward to having him over for a celebratory refreshment to enjoy our new space.
Boston Architects created very high-quality stair plans for me that were approved by the local inspectors right away. They are responsive, great listeners and a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend them for any project, from a commercial design to a smaller residential need such as mine.
Michael provided us with a vision and execution for our gut remodel kitchen that was a wonderful and functional design. He listened to our needs and worked within our budget objectives to turn out a fabulous kitchen at a reasonable cost. He found interesting design elements that allowed us to put our personal stamp on the project. He took care of all of the details and oversaw all aspects of the construction acting as the GC making sure all of the subcontractors and suppliers were managed.
