Jennifer Markanich was contracted for total renovation and design for my 16-year-old kitchen. An opening through a load-bearing wall into the adjacent living room was created to improve use and enjoyment of that space. Jennifer is extremely intuitive with her clients in creating space reflecting their lifestyles and tastes, and she worked respectfully within a budget. The kitchen was completely gutted and reconfigured. She provided extensive, detailed design for the cabinetmaker, a lighting plan, electrical detailing, assistance with appliance selection, etc. She was very attentive with the day-to-day progress and efficiently scheduled the various elements to minimize the amount of time this project took as we continued to live in our home during this process. She worked very professionally and knowledgeably with the various trades involved in a way that contributed to the overall design. It was a total pleasure to have her do this project with us. We were thrilled with the outcome and enjoy the new space immensely.
We are about to complete a project with Jennifer. This was new construction, so Jennifer’s organizational skills have been so important. She is one of the most professional and creative designers we have ever worked with on a construction project. Her communication skills have been excellent with us as well as the contractor. This has been one of the most pleasant construction projects we have done so far!
