Quality by Design Custom Homes/Real Cooking Kitchens
About this pro
I would like to let everyone know what a terrific job Joe did for us on our kitchen. We (Dave and I) had been looking for years to modernize our small cramped kitchen. Either the kitchen suppliers wanted just to sell new cabinets ( not solving the problem) or several local Contractors wanted to add a large addition to make more room (very costly), but could only refer us to the cabinet salesmen at their lumberyard for the design (who just wanted to sell us new cabinets). At first I was not sure about contacting Joe, he looked very expensive. But after a very long initial meeting, and several follow-ups to tweek the design, we fell in love with the plan. He completly changed the layout, added a >small< bump out to one wall, and 3 months later, we are using our dream kitchen!~ Dave and I would highly recommend Joe anytime!Mar 16, 2013

Joe completed an add-on kitchen/bathroom on our 100+ year old house in 2008-2009. I explained that I wanted it to look like it had always been there. He worked within our limited budget to create the room of my dreams, along with a farmer's porch for my favorite rockers. He moved on to do over our upstairs bath and the old dining room. When we searched for just the right cabinets, floors, storage shelves and library shelves and we didn't find them, he just went ahead and built them! I couldn't be more satisfied with his work. Many visiting handymen and carpenters have appreciated his skill and attention to detail, as we have.Mar 5, 2012
- What types of customers have you worked with?Real cooking Kitchens! People are not going out as much, and after a long wait, the housing market is now stabalizing. Functional (and stylish) kitchens are now being recognized as the one investment that really pays off! Also, expanded family rooms (not complete additions) , master bedrooms with full baths and sitting areas (think computer desk and overstuffed reading chair) , first floor guest /in-law bedrooms . Functional is very big right now. A mudroom area off the kitchen with 1/2 bath, laundry room, and walk -in closet with a bench seat completely changes how you "live" in your house.
- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?Having some basic ideas about what your looking to do.Many times people feel they would need"more space" to accomplish thier goals,when renovating and utilizing what currently exists quite often delivers the results they were hoping for. So take some time and see if you can define what you really need and want. Are you looking to "pretty up" that kitchen or bath? Or make serious changes to solve the problems you have accomodated for years?Once you know what this is..it may be time to talk to a professional. Remember..getting exactly what you -want & need- will prove to be the most economical project to do. And the one you will be most happy with!
