In 2006, Carl Pfeiffer of Craftsman Connection L.L.C., did major renovation on our 1924 cottage. When we purchased the
house, all of its original beauty had been altered by the prior owner and our desire was to bring the luster back to the property and provide us with good flow and movement on the inside.
Carl did an amazing job on the work – the house has been re-born and we are extremely happy with the craftsmanship and attention to detail that was put into it.
Carl removed the stucco exterior and aluminum frame windows and installed wood siding and wood frame double-hung windows, which have been key elements to the renovation. Many of our neighbors have stopped us in our garden to comment on the facelift and have been very pleased with how the house has really upgraded the street. The new side deck has been a great addition and allowed us to create a new exterior space to flow from our living room.
The interior changes are incredible! Carl had new cabinets, mantel and crown moldings crafted that make visitors take a double take when we tell them that they are not original to the house.
The new wood flooring, the central HVAC, French doors, fireplace, chimney, buffet, and upgraded floor plan (opening up the wall between the living room and dining room with craftsman-style posts and built-ins) have given us a beautiful home that we can be proud of. Bringing back the original style of the house, and maintaining its integrity, has been one of the things we love the most.
Working with Carl was a great experience because he cared so deeply about this project and paid attention to every detail… demanding excellence from himself and his entire team. Carl was conscientious of our schedule and was available and accessible to us whenever we had questions regarding the ongoing work.
We would gladly recommend Carl Pfeiffer for future work. His philosophy is to both satisfy his own sense of quality as well as make the property owner happy and proud to bring their property to its full potential.
