Just a quick note to say that we are beyond thrilled with how the kitchen, bathroom, and garage have turned out. As Tom knows, from first meeting with us a long time ago, this was a very major investment for us -- and it took us time and sacrifices and stretching to get the finances in order to be able to do it -- but the pay-off is huge and rewarding. We keep walking into the kitchen tonight, amazed that we get to live in such a beautiful space. From the design and vision to the execution, everything has been excellent, and the finished product is simply stunning.
I'm not sure if you guys know that we never sought out any other bids on this job. This was against all advice to the contrary. But we didn't because we just felt so comfortable and in good hands with FG, from the very start, that we couldn't imagine finding that level of trust anywhere else. And that has carried through in the job itself -- there's nobody I'd rather be having daily updates with than Joe! At every point, I have appreciated your knowledge and candor and practicality and helpful advice, and nearly encyclopedic memory of this job and this house. This is an old house with many odd quirks and it's been a pleasure to work on it with a true expert in old homes. And a really kind one at that.
