Our experience with Hal was wonderful. He has fantastic design vision, attention to detail and produces high quality products for an amazing value. We were so impressed with the work that he did. that we are already thinking of additional projects. In addition to the larger projects, he also worked with us to complete some small maintenance projects around the yard - refurbishing some Adirondack chairs, light fixtures, etc. Other reviewers have captured the considerations on how to best work with Hal: have a point of view, but your project will come out even more amazing if you take his design feedback into account, communicate clearly and often, but be flexible on your timeline, to account for weather and unforeseen delays. Wonderful experience, highly recommended!
