Project: Install Carpentry Framing
Comments: In our backyard we built a 20'x15' garden house with a concrete foundation, interior drywall finish, special order windows, double doors for ramp access of our riding lawnmower, interior french door, glass entry door, brick exterior, a/c & electricity. This of course involved hiring a lot of the various trades to complete this very intensive project. The project was at different times unnerving just because of "some" of the clueless workers we had to deal with for the various jobs, and at different stages of the project. The only saving grace for this whole project was Katia. She kept everything moving and organized as much as possible with what she had to work with. She helped keep my sanity during this 5 week project with her incredibly calm demeanor during this stressful time. The only reason I took 1 star off for the quality of the work is because of the morons we ended up working with throughout the project. We had to always be 1 step ahead of these trades every single time to ensure a successful project. The electrician was the worst of all the trades. He would show up when he felt like, and when he did, his job completions were completely unacceptable. Katia had to ask him to return several times to correct his half assed jobs. Then there were the first group of drywall guys who were equally amateur & clueless. All in all the project ended on a high note, but it was all because of Katia's efforts for keeping on top of everything. I also felt I got a good value for as intense & comprehensive a project this turned out to be. I would recommend Katia to anyone who want a successfully completed project with an honest, hard working project manager, and who wants to avoid getting ripped off by the many scammers in the building industry.
