My husband and I moved into our relatively new raised bungalow about eight years ago. The house is an open concept plan - living room, dining room and kitchen. Separating the living room and dining room is a beam. I always thought a coffered ceiling would be perfect in the living room. How right I was. It is stunning. When Darren came to look at our space and estimate the job, he was very professional and even asked questions that we had not considered. For example, how were we planning to light the living room? Darren also asked what were our thoughts for the dining room and kitchen. Did we want to leave it as is or put in crown moulding that would match the coffered ceiling? We chose to put in the crown moulding. The kitchen area has some very acute and unusual angles. We were absolutely amazed that Darren's measurements were so precise that when he cut all the pieces they fit like a glove and did not have to be trimmed - not even a millimetre! Amazing skill and craftsmanship. An absolutely professional job from start to finish: from ensuring our carpeted areas were covered, wearing bootties to keep out the dirt on the work shoes, to putting up a tarpaulin, attached to our eaves, to protect the moulding when it started to rain in the afternoon. We are fortunate that we have a garage and Darren was able to make use of this sheltered space. From the moment Darren pulled up to our driveway and set up his workspace to the moment he drove off his professionalism and craftsmanship was evident. Darren cleaned up and removed all debris. All we had to do was clean up the fine dust left on our lintels, fireplace, top of fridge and kitchen cabinet. All this intricate and fine work took one day to complete! Our living area has been truly transformed and looks stunning. We are truly grateful to Darren for his advice. When we told Darren that we would like to put in pot lots in each of the coffered squares, he measured out the space so that we could snap the chalk lines and the electrician could put in the pot lights. Darren, thank you so much for everything you did. We will be enjoying our enhanced living space for many years.
