Clean, efficient, professional

Lee completed our kitchen installation flawlessly. He was communicated well, did the work efficiently, professionally, on-time and the final result was perfect.

Lee was head and shoulders better than other contractors who we've hired for similar jobs. I would love to have him do work for us in the future.

Excellent Work

We found Lee after meeting with many other contractors and he was clearly outstanding, being exceptionally clear, fair and knowledgeable about the work we asked him to do: two bathrooms.

What’s more, upon completion, we’re happy to report that the execution proceeded similarly well, and that we’re know very happy with your two beautiful new bathrooms. We highly recommend Lee and will be hiring him again for future work.

Jolanta, taking on your project was a great experience. The fact that you decided to move out during the construction helped us to work steadily without distractions. We were able to meet important deadlines. Thank you for your trust. We look forward to tackling your next project.

complete kitchen renovation - outstanding results!!

Working with Lee was the best decision we could have made for our kitchen renovation. Our project was a big one – complete gut and redesign in a 100 year old house. Lee was fantastic to work with and exceeded our expectations on all fronts, from the initial design phase, demolition, renovation and right through to the final details. He is extremely knowledgeable and experienced and was able to anticipate potential challenges, accurately budget the project, execute perfectly according to schedule and keep us informed throughout the whole project. His attention to detail is impeccable – the final product looks like a completely custom kitchen, no one can believe it is Ikea. Lee took down a partition wall to open up the back of the kitchen, removed a drop ceiling, made custom pull outs underneath the cabinets for baking sheets, customized the cabinets around our fridge and microwave so they look built in, installed under cabinet lighting, built a full pantry, and worked with all the imperfections of an old house to make sure everything is perfectly level. We are thrilled with the final results, and a few months later the excitement still hasn’t worn off. His partner Danny, and the subcontractors he brought in were all excellent. In addition to the kitchen, we also hired Lee to do custom drawers underneath our stairs for extra storage, which turned out beautifully. A big factor in making the experience so positive for us was Lee’s personality. Renovations can be extremely stressful and Lee’s patience, kindness, honesty and optimism were invaluable to us.

We would highly recommend Lee and look forward to working with him again in the future.

Expert design and installation

I made an appointment with Lee to come and measure and design my Ikea kitchen. I had some ideas, but the design he came up with not only increased the size of my kitchen usable space, but looks really high end. You do the ordering and arranging for the Ikea delivery, but he creates the list for you to order the goods, so you’re not left wondering what to get. You are also responsible for purchasing things like flooring and tiles, but he installs all. His work is excellent. He is not the contractor that comes in the house, grunts and does the minimum but the guy that does that little extra almost like it’s his own home. Lee and his helper Danny were so incredibly pleasant to have around, always a smile and nice to the kitty Kimchi. Lee arranged for the bins and the electrician that he brought in did a fantastic job. I used the company Rockstella that he recommended for the countertops and they were incredible to deal with also. All was seamless and no stress at all. He is an excellent problem solver as I found out with my old house, that has quirky corners and doors that won’t move. The finish work is fine carpentry. He came in on budget and on time. He is incredibly organized and skilled. I cannot recommend Lee enough.

Window Bench

We have had Lee build us a kitchen pantry before which we loved and we recently had him build us a window bench. Lee was professional as usual, on time and did a great job.

He built the bench similar to what we liked and took care of the little things like making a functional and stylish looking extension to the floor vent that was going to get covered by the bench.

We will not hesitate to use Lee again!
