Pat Bellamy had a lot to say…
so we thought we’d make it a little easier to read what he had to say:
Jim and his team of helpers–Allen in particular–recreated my kitchen, living, dining, and laundry areas. Their first project was installing two high line toilets in the bath areas. With Jim’s guidance, the decision was made to take down the two kitchen cabinets and wall that blocked the view to the living, dining and deck areas. Jim suggested the door from the dining area to the guest room be closed in so we could move the refrigerator to that area and build storage cabinets in the previous refrigerator space. It was decided that an appliance garage would be built about the counter to hide the coffee pot, toaster, can opener and two large drawers would be built below the counter to hold dinner plates, cups, saucers, bowls and other kitchen items. Instead of losing cabinet space, we added several square feet of beautiful new cabinets as well as a total of four drawers! Pull out drawers were installed in each of the cabinet areas as well as under the sink making it very easy to access the trash can and cleaning products under the sink.
Jim and Allen worked diligently to frame out the kitchen bar so that the area would be level for the granite installation. Electrical work was relocated so lights, electrical outlets and garbage disposal elements were included in the granite design. With the addition of the white Taj Mahal granite, this area is now a key focal point of the room and a beautiful design element.
Since wall space was limited in the living area, the coat closet opening was covered and the opening moved to the laundry room, thus providing much needed space for decorative accessories. Jim’s experience in remodeling townhomes lead him to suggest that a vent be installed over the stove and place the microwave in the newly built cabinet.
Ceiling fans were wired in to the living room and master bedroom. Fluorescent ceiling lighting was re-routed. A rolling storage cart was created with the two cabinets that were removed from the kitchen and the property is ready for renters to enjoy the beauty both indoors and outdoors at this Segovia Lake property. Jim will be returning to do a covering for the deck once this homeowner has saved up some more money. Jim is a true professional who is honest, works hard, and gets the job done in a timely fashion with reasonable pricing. My mother and I contracted with him in 2012 in her $25,000 remodeling job. He has exceeded our expectations in both projects. He has a keen grasp of costs of materials and labor and he willingly shares his knowledge with his customers.
