Recent Review: My husband and I purchased this home as a foreclosure. The staircase was extremely steep and unsafe for our toddler and baby on the way. We signed the contract in either late August or early September of 2009. His bid was approximately the same or slightly under the bid of another contractor that we were considering. Through the entire process he was flexible and creative when suggesting alternative ideas for the construction. This is the first time I have undertaken a project of this kind and didn't know what to expect or how to schedule the order of contractors. For this reason, some of the significant delay can definitely be attributable to my inexperience. However, at the beginning of the project, we were told that the stair case would take approximately one month. He began the project sometime in September and it was not finished until December. Since we did not have a general contractor, I would frequently stop by the house to see the progress and see if anything needed my attention. Most of the time when I stopped by, no one from Creating Spaces was at the house working. Again, I had never done anything like this before so I did not know that contractors do not work on projects from start to finish, but have several going on and go back and forth. Still, it seemed as if it could have progressed faster. We had to delay moving in by one month because of this project and others. At one point during the project, one of the temporary treds on the staircase broke and my husband fell through the staircase onto the basement stairs below. Although he wasn't seriously injured he did sustain cuts and some nasty bruises. Overall the project worked well and the new stairs are much safer (and more attractive) for my two young children. I have only two caveats: (1) There is still a bump from a change in level from the hallway to the beginning of the first step that we trip on because it is not level. It was there prior to the installation of the carpeting and we were hoping that the carpeting would smooth it out, but it hasn't; and (2) The brand new stairs squeak a lot.
