We are so happy that we chose to work with Lagois. We are loving our new addition, which nearly doubled the square footage of our century home in Westboro, adding more functional space for family as well as a tranquil master retreat.
The design process was a positive experience. Starting out, we knew that our old addition had to go, but we had only general ideas about what to put in its place. Chris and Jeff helped us refine our needs and priorities in keeping with our budget.
The resulting design effectively integrated the new with the old, both inside and outside, maintaining our home’s historic character. Given the age of the house, we were nervous to begin demolition and construction, so we really appreciated how Lagois works with tradespersons to identify precise costs before entering construction contracts.
We enjoyed working with Sophie to select all of the finishings and love the end result.
We could not have had a better site supervisor than Darren. He paid close attention to construction details, communicated with us regularly, and did what he could to minimize disruptions to our lives. Darren clearly set a high standard with the tradespersons concerning cleanliness and respect for our property. He also maintained good relations with our neighbours. Living in a house during construction is not for everyone, but he helped us make it work.
We also appreciated how Lagois made it possible for us to collaborate easily, despite our hectic schedules, by transacting things by email or meetings at our home after hours.
We were happy that the project came very close to our original budget and completion date. The quality of the work is evident. Once we are ready to renovate more parts of our old house, Lagois will be our first call.
