Scott Residence | New York, NY

This one-bedroom apartment project consisted of a kitchen renovation which involved installing a wood floor, custom painted cabinets, new appliances, a granite counter top, and tile and mirror backsplash. The bathroom was also renovated with a tiled floor and walls and new plumbing fixtures. The antique tub remained and was re-glazed. All door, floor and window moldings were replaced. A custom wall unit was fabricated for the living room.

It’s clear you love what you do – it shines through! Your organizational ability and timeliness when added to your good communication with us, our interior designer, architect and in particular our building superintendent, made the whole process (usually high stress for us!)... stress free.
