bauschatz testimonialDave has done a variety of carpentry projects for us. All were completed with extreme care, imagination, and flair. We feel fortunate to have found him for what originally seemed like formidable challenges in adapting and maintaining our 1854 house. One small project involved adding glass panels on our screen porch, so that we could use the porch more months of the year. The next year, he also put in a tile hearth to bring our woodstove up to code. Both times necessitated working with mismatched dimensions, unlevel surfaces and hidden problems. In each case, he solved the problems quickly and efficiently. A major project concerned transforming a large mud-room into a new downstairs bathroom (with tile shower and counter-top) and guest room and changing an old bathroom into a laundry-room with laundry sink and folding table. Throughout that project he worked with plumbing, heating and electrical contractors to make sure that the various steps happened on schedule. In all these projects, Dave has been hard-working, flexible, and pleasant to work with. We would have no hesitation in employing him in future projects, and we recommend him highly.

nangle testimonialDave literally transformed our attic space into a wonderful, cheerful room that has proved to be a family sanctuary! Our house is about 100 years old and he turned what was once a dark third floor attic space with unfinished flooring, exposed beams, and almost no insulation into a warm, beautiful, sunny living space with soft yellow walls and white wainscoting. We have worked with a number of contractors and Dave was notably different. He gave us a detailed plan and precise budget and continued to consult with us before moving to each new stage of the project. Another thing that impressed us was his attention to detail. He is a true craftsman who cares about his work. Before putting on the surface details, Dave spent hours installing high tech insulation and ensuring that every behind the scene aspect was ready. Though he often works on his own, he has electrical and floor finishing professionals to call on when needed. We would, and probably will, hire him again.
