I engaged Andrew Schee's Studio Designs in May, 2011 to complete a year-long, whole-house renovation in Perkins. Andrew's team was always reliable, and understood the need to get more done in the same amount of time. Studio Designs has a number of specialists at its disposal, and I took advantage of that, employing landscapers, electricians, design specialists, plumbers, HVAC experts, and even automotive contractors. While it sounds like Andrew's team might be more expensive, this didn't turn out to be the case because of the shear volume of successfully completed projects each day. Andrew's oversight is always friendly and ethical, and he would advise when he thought it would be to my best financial advantage to wait on a project, or defray a project for another season, etc.
I found excellent contractors on Craigslist for months, and figured I got lucky. However effective those contractors had been - and they were - engaging Studio Designs was my single best decision over this past year.
