We have used Jimmy Clifford for two major construction projects and would recommend him to everyone who is considering a small or large undertaking. The first project he did was building a great room (16’ x 24’) across the back of our house, opening up our dining room and kitchen. It had a clever design that allowed the kitchen to expand into the back room creating a more open eat-in kitchen from our original corridor-style kitchen. It was a great design that was completed on schedule and came within our expected budget. It opened up our living space considerably and expanded our home with our growing family. Making this renovation was not too disruptive even with a two-year old at the time and a dog. It was one of the best investments we made, allowing us to stay in our neighborhood, a great location in proximity to the local schools.
The second project was more elaborate, but equally successful: a second floor, nicknamed the 'parental suite', along with a renovation of the kitchen. The second floor sits over the original footprint of the house, adding a master suite with walk-in closet, guest room, utility room, office, exercise room and large full bathroom. Jimmy and his team helped us reconfigure the corridor kitchen to create more efficient work space and lighting, along with making our renovation ideas a reality. This project took less than three months to complete; it started at the end of September and we were able to host Christmas dinner at our house after getting running water back in our kitchen and appliances hooked up, just in time. We have recommended Jimmy to many of our friends and neighbors. In fact, one of our neighbors adapted the “Martin model” to their ranch-style house and added a second floor as well. We may be starting a trend.
