The designer came and didn't seem to realize we bought the package from Angie's List so kept pushing for us on picking them to do the renovation work soon. My husband said that the designer sounded like he won't even bother making the design if we don't sign with them at that time. BTW, I did mention to the appointment person that we're not sure when we're doing the work, maybe 6 months or one year down the road. I had just wanted a 3D design first to capture what I have in my mind. I also emailed them before purchasing the package to see if they include measurements in the design, they said it will but it didn't.
During the session, I was trying to ask questions to see if we can put a double oven or a corner pantry but he seemed to not listen to me properly and repeatedly assured me that he will do a really nice design for me.
After over a month of the meeting, we got three pictures from different

subsequently decided to use as a pantry--it's that big and that beautiful).
There is a reason that we value "old-world" skills and values, and
Hire him. You will be glad you did.
We got a discount of $500 in our contract and felt comfortable to start the work, since we had over a year thinking to do it and getting estimates here and there we felt it was time to do it.
They work efficiently and work around the original idea he had for our bathroom, even though it took an extra week of work, we felt very satisfied with the results.
We told her what our budget was for the project and she said it would be a challenge, but it was possible. She left telling us she would run some numbers and get back to us in 10 days with an estimate.
It has been almost a month now and she hasn't contacted us. I have contacted her office several times and they said she would get back to us, but we have heard nothing.
We have met with 5 companies (including

house build in the 50s. It would have been impossible to live in the place during
the remodel. So one of the criteria was that the bulk of the work would be done
in 3 month. They managed to keep it to 3 month from move-out to moving back…on
time. A major accomplishment for a project of this size. They came in and did
the demolishing in less than a week. Worked Saturdays and sometime Sundays to
meet the schedule and assigned as many people as necessary. Did most of the
work with their own people but brought in contractors for some jobs. All very
professional. Some of the details were finished after we moved back in. We kept finding small things after moving back
we didn’t notice before and they and fixed all the things we mentioned. No cost
overrun or surprises after the contract was signed either. Actually, quite the
When we ran into a few problems, which you invariably do with
bigger construction projects like this, SOD would immediately take steps to
address the issue to our satisfaction (e.g. wrong color paint and a window).
When there was a problem the responses was immediate. After moving in we had a
bit of water running from a pipe coming out of the wall on the floor in the bathroom
one evening. I called and they had a crew of 3 guys ringing the doorbell 20
minutes later at 9:00 in the evening.
I have a detached Garage in bad shape as well which was not part
of the project (quote), but they removed the siding and put on stucco and a new
roof anyway. Also, additional lights (I have all

extra cost when I simply asked for it. Even fixed my shower faucets after all
the work had been finished 3 month or so after we moved back in requiring to
open the walls again. Something I had forgotten to ask for.
SOD clearly showed they are an experienced company with a lot of
know-how. Easy to work with. This is the company we'd like to work with again because
they always covered our back with honesty and sincerity. They were easy to
reach and responsive. And the online web site for communication and email works
great as well. And I was really impressed with the quality of the work
I can't say enough good
things. I just know that we made the
right choice! Hire these guys if you have a job to get d done. I would again.
They were very good with reminders and encouraged us to keep the appointment when we had second thoughts. So we went with it.
So, we thanked him. And will go with someone else.
We think we're the best, and we can prove it.
