This project just kept growing! Yet, it was a pleasure to execute over 50 change orders “before the baby came.” Within the 1st week of the project, in early September, the owners decided that whatever they were ever going to do to their house, they’d better do it before the baby came…in late January. Their being perfectly pleasant the whole time helped a lot. We earned our DPM (doctorate in project management) on this one.

We love working for pregnant clients. It adds that extra level of satisfaction when we can keep that special time in their life as stress free as possible.
