Simply the best. Excellent design, and collaborative approach with owner. The result was a kitchen with really special touches, like lots of hidden storage, varied ceiling lines to create intimate seating without walls, customized counter/shelving heights to accommodate owner’s needs, and custom cabinetry that is perfectly fitted and maximally efficient, to say nothing of just beautiful.
Old fashioned craftsmanship and real pride in doing the work even more solidly and beautifully than expected. Stayed true to budget and schedule, and were a pleasure to have around my home, even with all the inevitable disruption a porch/kitchen/living room job entails.
In 2000, Associated Housewrights remodeled one bathroom and built an adjacent bathroom addition. In 2012 and 2013, AHW was the carpentry subcontractor and provided guidance while I was the general contractor on a family room remodel and kitchen remodel, respectively.
Associated Housewrights staff has been consistently excellent at design, at project management, at schedule management, at cost estimation, at producing a beautiful product, and at problem solving and customer relations.
As a subcontractor for Associated Housewrights, I have worked on dozens of their projects. As a professional in the building trades I find that when I work on an Associated Housewrights project, things go smoothly. This is a tribute to their organization and positive attitude. It also speaks well of their choice of subcontractors and employees. There is an excellent spirit of cooperation on the job site which makes things pleasant for me, but translates to a higher quality product in the end.
There is a pride of craftsmanship and an emphasis on quality and good design sense that is lacking in many places. I frequently recommend Associated Housewrights to clients in need of a quality general contractor.
We worked with Matt and he helped us figure out how our home could fit our family’s needs. It wasn’t what we thought at first.. and after living with the remodel for several years… boy, was his expertise valuable. We got what we really wanted!
Associated Housewrights did an outstanding job remodeling our basement, we were beyond impressed with the professionalism, quality, and speed of which they carried out the project.
The staff was extremely helpful in guiding us to the design and features we wanted.
The design, and layout was better than we had envisioned.
We would use Associated Housewrights again for any home project.
We had two major projects done over 4 years. One a back shed designed to match the house and created, remodeling of the breakfast nook walls and windows including adding an outside door, a pocket door and lots of landscaping.
The other a full kitchen rebuild down to the studs including removal of an interior wall and redesign of the layout. The did a great job. Time was either on time or early. Their cost projections are always a range and the project scope creeps and some materials are more expensive once you get involved in the choices. But the process is quite transparent. Hourly costs are on the high side and there is no cost discussions with the subcontracting groups.
