“Normandy and the dream team we worked with Chris Ebert and Bruce Pettingill were outstanding. They transformed our home!!! And most important they did it ON TIME while I was 6 months pregnant. We hired them to convert our kitchen/dining room into a kitchen with a mudroom.
Our home is over a hundred years old with a 18-year-old modem family room addition and my husband fondly referred to it as the Frankenstein house. He wasn’t wrong – and the worst part about it was the disaster of the kitchen and the disproportionate amount of space from the old part of the home vs the new part.
We had considered a couple of other firms, but from the minute Chris walked our entire home (even though he knew the project focus was only the kitchen) he won me over. He spent a lot of time learning about our home, lifestyle, tastes and asked thoughtful questions and truly served as a trusted advisor. Chris has a sharp eye and a strong vision – we knew we needed a firm like Normandy to really own the project from start to finish – but we thought we knew the direction of the design. What Chris proposed and designed was beyond anything we could have ever imagined – every single person who has walked into our home has marveled at the transformation.
As soon as we hired Normandy, Chris guided us through a seamless process – his candor and honesty was so refreshing. We knew they were one of the more expensive firms, however he was considerate and conscientious of our budget and found creative ways to stay within the budget. He is a fantastic listener and kept our insights in mind. Both Chris and Bruce were outstanding communicators, and were extremely patient.
Our only stipulation with hiring them was we needed to have the project completed by my due-date – May 21st Bruce and team started the work in Mid- February. I went into labor 3 days early and when I came home from the hospital my brand new kitchen had already been cleaned and was ready for our baby boy.
My husband was a little skeptical before hiring Normandy but he has is a converted fan and has already started thinking about other projects with Normandy.”
