 Client Testimonial


"We have a 1927 house in the Adams Hill section of Glendale. When we wanted to update the kitchen, it was important for us to retain the original floor plan and respect the integrity of the era. We wanted to keep it simple, yet improve the work pattern and storage. There was a lot of work to do as no room in our two-story house high on a hill had level floors or square corners. In order to put in new cabinets, the walls and floor were stripped down to the studs and support beams, then leveled and squared. It was a LOT of work but Mary's coordination of all the subcontractors was superb and we started and ended in the time frame we wanted. We kept all of our white appliances, but installed a new white sink, warm beige laminate countertops, white painted wood cabinets, and cork flooring. We moved the refrigerator to a different wall and installed a two-drawer dishwasher. We also had to include leveling the floor, re-doing the electrical box and re-doing a wall in the laundry room adjacent to the kitchen. Subway tile in a sage green, yellow walls, warm beige counters and cork floor, charming floral print Roman shades -the results are wonderful! The kitchen is warm, efficient, colorful and a pleasure every day thanks to Mary. Her knowledge, advice, access to quality subcontractors and materials and follow through made the difference. She's the best! "
