Michael worked with my wife and I on the remodel of both our primary and second home. On both projects we found his ideas and design schemes to be inspiring, logical and cost effective. Michael offered many construction solutions that saved time and money. Michael demonstrated both artistic vision and practical "in the field" talents. We highly recommend him.
