As the general contractors, this was a large project for us, and Richard (iCornerstone owner) provided guidance throughout the whole project.
He worked with us to design the conversion of the old garage and erect the new garage, put the specification/building plans together, provided guidance on the building permit process, and acted as the project coordinator.
His detailed project plans were especially helpful, and he posted to DropBox all project documentation, including 153 pictures that show every phase of the work.
Richard referred structural and civil engineers to provide us structural and compression information on the project. This was important because we brought in fill where the new garage is sitting, and the solution he suggested saved over $10,000.
He also referred a construction team for the building work (excavating, foundation, electric, plumbing, and carpentry, etc.), and we hired them directly.
As homeowners, we had had no previous experience or direction for the project, but, with Richard’s help and guidance, we are near completion.
As with any plan, there were changes along the way that were communicated, and adjustments were made in a professional manner.
The project came in on time and under budget, and all the subcontractors we hired were first rate.
We are completely satisfied with the end results.
Description of work:
Convert current garage to a bedroom and full bathroom and construct new garage to replace converted garage.
