……It looks awesome! We used the area so much throughout the holiday with our family. It has completely transformed our house!
B. Legrand worked very professionally and kept the area clean since it was near all bedrooms. He provided great drawings and explained details thoroughly. When unexpected items occurred, he discussed with me the options and his recommendations immediately. I always felt comfortable with him and his crew in my house while I was not there. Loved the results!
We started with Bryan Black of B Legrand back in the Winter of 2013. We were interested in redesigning our kitchen. Bryan worked with us to come up with a design that fit the space in our kitchen and made the space much more efficient. He also went through several designs with us until we came up with the one that not only met our specifications for functionality, but also fit our budget.
In September of 2014 he broke ground. His team completely gutted our kitchen. His team was amazing! His workers showed up on time, were very conscientious and best of all, cleaned up after themselves. Doug and Tom were the primary guys in charge of the day to day work. They were fantastic! They paid a lot of attention to detail and were very careful to keep us in the loop as to the progress of the job and any factors that might impact their progress. They were also careful to take into account the impact the job had on my family. They worked things so that throughout the entire job I was only without a stove for a few days, and I always had a full-size functioning refrigerator.
Besides Tom and Doug, Bryan was careful to hire sub-contractors that met his high standards for quality. Everyone from the electrician, to the painter, to the plumber, to the dry-wallers paid attention to detail were courteous and cleaned up. For a full kitchen remodel, it went as smoothly as it could.
It was great having Bryan as both the architect and the contractor. Whenever there was a snag, he was quick to get into contact with us and come up with a creative solution. For example, at one point we realized that a pocket door had been removed from the plan, but we needed something to cover the opening from the mud room into my kitchen. Bryan quickly came up with the idea of a barn door. That door is now a focal point of the kitchen and one of my favorite details.
Somehow Bryan and his team managed to finish our kitchen both on time (in 7 1/2 weeks, and the original quote was 8-10 weeks), and within the initial projected budget. Bryan was great and I highly recommend him and his company.
