Nick has a great team of people - their carpenters and subcontractors were all very talented and respectful. They always took the time to make sure they understood the design intent and were always careful to do things the right way. More importantly, they always fixed a problem with a smile if something wasn't quite right. There was no fighting or finger pointing - it was clear that everyone just wanted to do the job as best as possible.
The tile work in the bathrooms is immaculate. I feel very lucky to have worked with them every time I take a shower.
