After confirming with
Approval of the Kitchen\Living Room plans came back quicker than expected (in a few days as opposed to weeks), and work on the kitchen and living room commenced and ran concurrent with the work on the master bathroom. This work involved removing walls between the galley kitchen, the den/4th bedroom, the living room and the dining area with the ultimate design goal being a great room spanning all of these areas. Due to removing load-bearing walls, support beams had to be installed in the attic and 6 foot deep underpinnings had to be dug and placed in a several areas. Although the inside of our house was unrecognizable, the work proceeded on schedule for the most part. During the project, we did make some adjustments to overall scope (not changing planned work, just adding new work to overall scope, e.g., originally we had no intention of touching the fireplace, or any of the bedrooms; we made some decisions midstream to have Horizon redo the fireplace and floor and paint all of the bedrooms based upon design ideas from
Removal of HVAC unit from closet adjacent to the bathroom.
Demolition of walls between HVAC closet, bathroom, and adjacent coat closet.
Installation of new HVAC unit in the attic.
Utilizing the square footage from the HVAC closet and the coat closet effectively doubled the square footage of the guest bathroom allowing us to convert it into a full bath with double vanity (from a ¾ bath). This was the last aspect of the project to complete.Considering that we lived in the house through the project (with the exception of 3 non-continuous weeks for vacation), we were eager to see the project complete, and we are extremely happy with the results. Horizon saw the vision we had for transforming the interior of our 55 year old ranch style house into something more modern and beautiful, and they executed on it.
The only negative thing I feel compelled to note is that the crew was not considerate about keeping the work site clean: Paint brushes were rinsed out in the plants in the front yard; razors, cuttings from wood, discarded pieces of wire, food wrappings, etc continually littered my front yard and driveway. I asked
Lastly I have to say that,

- Very Satisfied Homeowner
garage beneath and second floor and attic above. He examined structure in garage and basement as well as the hallway upstairs and the structure of the roof in the attic. He was very informative and gave a lot of information as he was making his inspection and measurements. He answered any and all questions we had and included what he thought the cost would be for the project to give us an idea of price to expect. He also said that we and/or whoever did the work could call him anytime with questions about his report, specs and drawings. The report was emailed and sent by regular mail within 10 days (he emailed to say that he apologized for the slight delay...he had promised it in 7 days). He had told us if we needed the report earlier he could get it to us, but we did not need it right away so the week-10 day time frame was no problem AND he contacted us to let us know about the delay (even though it was only 3 days). He also contacted us again to let us know he was emailing the report that evening and putting it in the mail the next day.
Included in the very detailed report was a nice letter, again emphasizing that we/contractor could call with any questions. He also recommended having 3 estimates done and provided the names, addresses and numbers of three contractors he had worked with often.
We would use his services again and would highly recommend him.
Made a few phone calls to them about when this can be looked since they are bonded. Even grant people made a call was told 6 more weeks. Never heard back. I called again and was told someone would be here before or after christmas, there was a no show. Than my bathtub would not drain.tried calling again and got no return call. Had to use what little left of grant money to get someone else here and was told pipes were plugged up and this fixed the sewer smell but still have the noise up the sink. Pretty upset they got that much money for 2 inline vents when I could had it done thru somewhere else
