Small Basement Finish

We hired Penguin to finish our ~500 sq foot basement and turn a 2 pc rough in into a 3 pc bathroom. We're a busy family really value the minimal spare time we have, so we wanted to hire a full service contractor who would handle permits and coordinate trades people.

Overall we are happy with the finished product. We went about 2 months over the initial timeframe, but this is quite good considering the job started during COVID/supply chain delays.

The tradespeople who came in were respectful of our home and the majority did a good job. We had a few concerns, but for the most part they were remidied.

The use of buildertrend allowed us to receive scheduling updates and oversee our project without constant phone calls. However, there was no lead person per se, which made communication a little challenging. Often our contact would change depending on the stage we were in, but weren't notified.

Overall we are happy with the job Penguin did. We're utilizing our entire home and have created more space and additional resources for our family.

We again apologize for the length of the reno. But as you noted Covid seemed to impact everything and everyone. We are happy you are happy with the results. Enjoy the basement.
