Our home builder installed a fireplace that looked more like an afterthought. It was more of a 'firebox' than a fireplace. Very simple and cheap looking sitting against a large wall in our Great Room. The room needed more than this simple firebox.
Enter Winter Construction.
With an unusually large wall framed by two windows near the ceiling, designing the right fireplace was tricky. A standard fireplace would simply not work. It required some imagination. Winter Construction was hired because Tom Winterís approach to the project seemed practical. When we interviewed him for the job, his willingness to both work with us and provide his own suggestions to solve our design problem was paramount to our decision. He was able to take simple plans and ideas and turn them into reality. We could not be more pleased with the result. The fireplace became the centerpiece of the room.
Tom's attention to detail cannot be overlooked. He worked with us closely from design to completion and followed through effortlessly with some design changes that we made along the way. His craftsmanship was outstanding. His work included framing and stone work on the fireplace, painting and cabinetry work to create some window treatments. He arrived on time each day and paid particular attention to cleaning up at the end of his day. Tom was very professional and knowledgeable with every aspect of the job.
We would certainly recommend Winter Construction for your home project. We intend to hire Tom again to complete some other projects that we have planned for our home.
