I bought a "project" house in 2014. This place was stuck the 70s and every single room needed a makeover. I saw this place as an opportunity to to take a "blank" canvas and make it into exactly what I wanted. I figured it would be fun to develop my handyman skills in the process. As I started going through the house, I kept getting more (and more ambitious) ideas. Many of which depended on one another or required a feasibility analysis from an "expert". That's when I called Bruce to come in and help me get all my ideas organized through one of his "Brainstorm" sessions. Bruce is awesome! He came out and took a look at the place, including crawling around in the attic, measuring everything and listening to all my ideas. I really appreciated the time he took to make additional trips out to the site, and the several phone calls to walk through ideas and clarify priorities. I felt I could be completely direct and candid without offending him, which is important to me. In the end, he helped me see what was possible with this place, by providing several sketches detailing some great solutions (that I hadn't even considered) to many of the issues I encountered, and an overall "plan" with a very detailed cost estimate. I am taking my time working on this house, but I intend to engage Bruce throughout the process whenever I need to call in an expert. More...
