"We found Gilmore to be creative in working around the challenges that a 200 year old house presents, conscientious of- and keeping us on- budget.
Our renovation / remodeling project consisted of (1) creating a carriage house type in-law apartment with 1 bedroom and 3-car garage space, and (2) remodeling the existing barn / garage space attached to our home into an extended kitchen and living area. Not a small or simple project. Initially, we worked closely with Eric and his staff, and once ground broke, worked with our project manager, Jen, and our construction manager, Shawn, who were both terrific and endlessly patient through it all.
They were professional at all times, honest to the overall aesthetic of our home, and overall a pleasure to work with. Our 8 month project timing slipped a few times due to unexpected challenges both project-related (eg, water run off, a gas line that needed to be routed creatively to get from point A to point B, town smoke detector craziness) and personal- a family illness that made regular weekly walk throughs more difficult. Gilmore did a good job of helping us understand why things were slipping, what the plan was for getting back on track and helping us understand what the slippage meant to the overall time table.
Jen and Shawn were always prompt collecting new proposals and explaining what made sense for now and where we might be better off waiting until we had lived in the new spaces. A year later, we are very happy with the end product and would recommend Gilmore to those interested."
