Dear Kevan,

I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you and your team on the extensive remodel of my house. We have been working together on this project for three years and it has finally come to fruition.

On a personal level I cannot tell you how happy and delighted I am with the end result.

The house is beautiful from the outside, warm and inviting, I have already received numerous compliments on the design and architecture. On the inside it seems spacious, open and very stylish and with your attention to detail has been totally transformed.

The back yard is an absolute dream, with maximum use of space and I know will become the "center" of the house. I especially love the curve of the deck, which is something coming from such a "straight line" person. I know that the front porch will be made great use of, both as a place for the family but also for entertaining.

Thank you for always taking in to account my personal taste and requests that I know are sometimes quite forceful. You were always respectful even if you didn't always agree.

Finally, I want to thank you most sincerely for introducing me to Tom who has been a pleasure to work with. It is not easy to have your client living in the house and he has shown patience and consideration at all times. Always available and on site every day, you could not ask for more. I would highly recommend him to anyone undertaking a remodel, he has a great eye, extremely thorough and his subs are all of the highest caliber. Without fail when I have a question or concern they have given me their full attention and gone out of their way to please me.

Once again, thank you for what has been a very rewarding experience and I look forward to many happy years at 10629.

Best regards,


We are writing to express our appreciation for the outstanding job you did on all aspects of our recent remodel, from design and conception of the plans to the overall management of the construction.

We've been especially impressed with your ability to solve problems in updating our home, making it more usable, attractive and contemporary, while respecting the period in which it was built.

Kevan, your tremendous service orientation, attention to detail and incredible patience and accessibility made a seemingly overwhelming task manageable. We truly felt we were partners working together! Needless to say, we love the outcome and could not and would not have wanted to have done this project without you!

Thank you so much for overseeing the design and construction of our "new" home with such integrity, attention to detail and ownership of the process. This was not only a great educational experience for us, but was enjoyable as well. Not once did we feel overwhelmed or lost beyond our expectations. You were truly our "navigator" and we could not have done it without your care and direction. Thank you again for designing such a beautiful and unique home and for making our "dream" home a reality.
