Kitchen RenoPosted by Rashmi P. in Upper East Side
I own a studio apartment and want to change the layout (primarily to have a larger and more open kitchen area). All the elements of the scope of work are “must haves”. We already have board approval and most of the design done, but other aspects - filing and pulling DOB permits, electrical, plumbing, HVAC, labor, raw materials and finish materials - are anticipated.
Not user-friendly and lacking storage space.

Dominick, his project manager John, and the rest of the team were amazing. Throughout the process they were courteous and pleasant to deal with, helpful and patient when it came to making decisions, responsive to questions and concerns, and skillful at adapting to unexpected challenges. They also went out of their way to make sure my apartment ended up just the way I wanted it - and often had useful design and technical suggestions to make it even better. They stayed within budget, too. I can't recommend them enough!
