We wanted to add a half bathroom on the first floor. This was our first home project and we were very nervous about getting started. Darren was very professional from the first day we met. He was great at informing us, and even educating us as he worked on the details of the project. An added bonus for us was Darren's flexibility to work around our infant. He made sure that any drilling/ loud noises were done before and after naptime. Darren definitely put our priorities first, which made him even easier to work with. Kim was also very prompt and responsive with questions and updates regarding our project. Our bathroom turned out perfect! We're very pleased with the outcome. We get so many compliments from our family and friends. We will definitely work with Kim and Darren again for future home projects!

Darren is very creative besides being a great carpenter; he had some awesome ideas to make my living room really special. It is a challenging space and he created a really beautiful makeover, using stone for fireplace wall and beautiful flooring. He knows how to combine materials to create a unique space. He understands color & light and is really helpful in making decisions about materials and colors. - Alison Kiely / Merrimac MA / Living Room Reno (via Facebook)

We hired Darren to give two bedrooms a makeover full demo with fresh drywall, insulation, trim, and closet door. From the initial consult to the finished project Darren and Kimberly were not only easy to communicate with, but they listened and came to the project with understanding and empathy. They really were willing to work with us. Also, the quality of workmanship was exceptional. Darren's attention to detail matches my own the highest compliment I can offer.

Was able to communicate well, work independently and was flexible with his schedule to accommodate a very tight timeline. Organized and clear on billing. A pleasure to work with.

Kim is great at keeping me update, she was very responsive to my inquires, via text, phone, or email. She is always upfront and honest. Darren's attention to detail is fantastic. Darren would let me know of any issues right away, he is a pleasure to just speak with, he is honest, on time. No problems-I would use him again without a doubt
04/29/2018 5.0 Quality: 5.0 Customer Service: 5.0 Value for Money: 5.0 Review by Cathy O. in Franklin, MA (via Home Advisor) Project: Remodel or Renovate One or More Rooms Comments: We purchased our first home and it is in need of quite a few updates. We wanted to have the walls removed from our dining room which would require a beam, new closet, updates to the stairway, and patching the floor and baseboards plus some electrical and plumbing work. We got two quotes and Darren's actually came in higher but the level of detail showed that there were things the other quote didn't account for and also where we had some choices. We asked to do some of the finish work ourselves since we have to do some things across the whole house and Darren was clear on what was/wasn't being done. In the middle of the project we also had an issue come up in an unrelated part of the house and he answered the panicky text right away and outlined what he thought based on the pictures and calmed us (me) down. He did temporary repairs and then completed that side project (and again gave us choices) at the end of this main project. The project did take a bit longer than quoted but there were weather and supply issues, an additional basement support column requirement from the inspector, plus the aforementioned side project. Kimberly and Darren were great to communicate with and Darren's attention to detail, explanations, and the end product all made us super happy with the whole process. We have already recommended them to friends and plan on working with them again!
Tom & Terry Stubbs Amesbury, MA (via Facebook) I was having an addition done that included a new bathroom. Unfortunately, the contractor got in over his head and was not capable of doing some of the work. The bathroom being a huge part of that. We were lucky to find Darren when we did. Our carpenter had installed tile incorrectly which had to be torn out, our floor was so far out of level that our vanity would have never sat right, not only that, but the toilet would have been out of level and so on. Darren was completely understanding. He took over a poorly done job and turned it into our dream bathroom. He also built some cabinets for our kitchen to match what was already existing. What an outstanding job. We couldn’t tell the new cabinets apart from the old ones. It was a blessing to find Darren. He went the extra mile and made sure our project came out to our expectations. Nice work Darren.
Stu Cataudella Haverhill, MA (via Facebook) As a client, I totally recommend Darren. He is an exceptionally talented designer, he completely renovated my 1600 sq foot home, he designed a hip, modern and charismatic space. He brought a new feeling to my home with his fabulous design skills. I especially enjoy the kitchen and living space, very well thought out. I also like the clean lines, his awareness of being green and efficient while still providing a dramatic space. I absolutely love it. The greatest compliment of all is that I will use him again on my next design project. Thanks Darren.
Connie Pace & Family Revere / Newburyport, MA (via Facebook) We were so glad to get Darren, when we first met he exclusively worked for one contractor. He was very professional and attentive to our needs. We loved the guys so much that we had them all over to our re-designed home for a lasagna dinner. The whole family has had the pleasure of working with Darren, not only have I had work done, my two sons and daughter also had projects completed by Darren. I recall losing power one night in our newly renovated space, we called Darren fairly late into the evening and he was at our house within the hour. He had the power back on in a flash. Thank you so much Darren for another project well done!
Alan Chicos Winthrop, MA (via Facebook) We had our bathroom remodeled and our second bath repaired by Darren. The complete bath is just absolutely amazing. We were nervous at first, because this was the first time that we ever had work done on our home. Darren really set our minds at ease, explaining much of what he was doing and educating my wife and I as he went. The second bathroom had a leak behind the wet wall in the shower, he carefully removed a portion of the wall so the plumber could fix the faulty valve. He restored the wall and re-tiled the area. His work was absolutely flawless. We could not even tell that the tile was patched. Thank you for caring to help us save money. Good luck and best wishes!
