Kitchen Remodel

Our starting point was a small, cramped, outdated kitchen that was desperately in need of a full-scale remodel. Our clients love entertaining but, unfortunately, could only fit three to four guests in this sad, old kitchen at any given time. So for this kitchen remodel, we focused our efforts on expanding the space and optimizing it for maximum use value. We minimized the main wall separating the kitchen from the living/dining room, creating an open floor plan that gave the kitchen—and the people in it—room to breathe. What was once cramped, close quarters is now a stunning new room that can house as many guests as our clients desire.

Jared Lewis is a dream to work with and we can’t recommend him enough as a contractor. Our job included a full kitchen remodel, removal of one wall between the kitchen and dining room, changes in floor, windows and lighting in both those rooms plus new floor in the living room. We had put off doing this work for ages in part due to some of the horror stories we had heard from other friends who had done remodels. Because of these apprehensions we were especially impressed with how professional and reliable Jared was through the entire process. Although a remodel like this is always going to be a disruption in your routine – Jared and his crew definitely made the experience as painless as possible. Jared is a true professional and cares about all the details of your job. His main crew – Jeff and Chris – are really skilled craftsmen themselves and very considerate of the home owner’s needs. We also were very impressed with all the subcontractors Jared worked with and found them all be top notch professionals. We really appreciated Jared’s consistency, attentiveness to detail and schedules, and his ability to communicate and keep us up to date on what was happening. He was very up front about costs and good about flagging any unknowns so we would be prepared. He is very skilled at what he does and the final product came out amazing – exactly what we dreamed of. We will be using him for anything else we do on our house.
