“Steve’s honesty was refreshing, we made no mistake in choosing Nest Inc.”
We hired Steve Friedson and the Nest Inc. team to redesign, build our kitchen, two bath-rooms, and our living room/media center. Not being adept at construction, we figured it should take 5-6 weeks. A few other contractors that we interviewed, but did not hire, indicated “it was doable”. Steve gently pulled us out of the dream world that other contractors encouraged us to remain within, and fully explained the extent of the work we desired, the NYC permitting process, and the reality that what we wanted would most likely take eight to ten weeks to complete – with us still living in our condo. Steve’s honesty was refreshing, we made no mistake in choosing Nest Inc. The completion of the work took a little over eight weeks.
Steve’s crews cleaned up after themselves each and every day, so we could live in our home during the work. The results were spectacular, to say the least!
Steve designed the fixtures and cabinetry to “soften” the contemporary and give my wife the old world bath feel she wanted. I actually like the traditional touches. The living room & media center is a palace of high tech and comfort that somehow blends the comfort of a family’s common living area with the feel and sound of a performance hall – all at the flick of a few switches and using some very creative tablet apps to control everything.
We had been warned about cost overruns from a neighbor who had experienced a budget nightmare when he redesigned his condo. He did NOT recommend his contractor, and was astonished when we informed him that Steve completed our projects within 8% of our initial estimates. AMAZING!!! We are now considering a complete renovation of our summer cottage up in Orange County. We are getting only one bid for that project … and it will be from Nest Inc. We could not be more pleased with this company and with Steve Friedson.
