Project consisted of moving of Restoration Hardware headboard which was quite massive at 83 inches wide and 5'9" in height. After having the Restoration Hardware movers give up on moving the headboard to our third story bedroom we were inclined to thinking of moving the headboard into the house from the bedroom window through the back of the house. This would need the window to be taken out, the headboard to be hoisted the second and third floor, and then moved into the bedroom, and then all the window repairing fitted back into the structure of the house.
Undoubtedly, after having almost a handful of people go through the house and giving us estimates, I would have to say that Sean was the only one that took the time to come up with every possible scenario and their corresponding ramifications on the risks of the project, the costs of the project, and the quality of the project.
He thought outside the box, made many suggestions as to how to minimize the damage to the house, for example, suggesting that they take out part of the wall, or part of the railings in the staircase, or different methods of trying to get the headboard into the master bedroom, even going as far as to suggest getting quotes from Upholstery Companies, which we did on his suggestion, and probably consider moving forward.
Although we did not use his services for this particular project and in the end decided to have an upholstery company modify the headboard, break it in half, and then move it up the stairs, I am thoroughly impressed with the level of detail, attention to our needs, and the cost benefits with which he pursued the project. His thoroughness came through in what he did next.
Just to ensure that the dimensions of the headboard were truly captured in the space provided by our staircase, he came back a second time with wood and nails to build a mockup of the frame of the size of the headboard measuring the exact dimensions of the headboard. He then pursued to carry this mockup piece up the staircase and identified all parts of the wall ceiling and railing which would need to be either broken and modified to see if it was possible to raise it up the staircase. I would say that he went to a greater length than anyone else to ensure that he was completely able to move this piece of our house. He is affable, knowledgeable, and very eager to gain a great reputation in our community. His family also resides in this region and his knowledge of the industry, having worked at some very large initiatives in Jersey City and New York, make him a very worthy choice for home and project work. We will save his contact details and will call on him again in a few months when we are ready to do other much more involved renovations on our house.
