Artisan Home Builders
Hi Jim,Our current appraisal came in at $1.XX million. Our last appraisal was in August 2013 and that one came in $200k less. Of course, there are a number of factors affecting an appraisal, but I’m sure the work on the kitchen and laundry helped. : ) Thanks again for the fantastic work you and your staff put into this project.
Jim and his team recently completed a remodel on a part of our home that we dedicated to an in-law unit. I can’t say enough about how amazing the project turned out. His expertise and professionalism are unmatched! The end result far exceeded our expectations and we now have a contractor for “life.” What was even more exceptional was the fact that the project came in before schedule and on budget - there were NO surprises - no kidding! I would recommend Jim and have been recommending Jim to all my friends and family.
Jim has an eye for design and a great team supporting him. The quality of the work that Artisan does is unparalleled. Equally important is that they meet the deadlines and time estimates that they establish. This is critically important in taking on a job like a kitchen where construction can be very disconcerting for a family. Jim has my highest recommendation! You will be very happy if you move forward with his firm.
We just had Artisan Home Builders do our new family room. This is the second project we’ve hired them for, and it was once again, WORTH IT!Four years ago I did an Internet search for contractors, as none of my friends or relatives had anyone they could recommend, and going through the yellow pages was no help. So, when I found Artisan Home Builders online, and found out they had good ratings, I hired them to re-do my kitchen cabinets and paint the kitchen. The work was so great, and working with them was so easy, that four years later, when my husband and I decided to knock out a wall and enlarge our family room/dining room area, we called them again to get an estimate, and after a couple of other estimates, went with Artisan again. As in the previous job, they kept in constant contact, did everything we wanted, and even suggested a few things we didn’t think about, that we would have been sorry we didn’t include, later on.They cleaned up nicely every day when they were done, and when they promised a finish date, they lived up to their promise. Two days after it was completed, we were hosting a Super Bowl party with all our friends, walking into the house and standing in awe of the beautiful work. I even overheard a very critical friend mention how beautiful it was, and that it looked like it was out of a home design magazine.I feel like I live in a completely new house, and I can’t begin to rave enough about how happy I am with the work!!Jim Granlund (the owner), is great to work with, and his crew were great as well!All in all, I’m really thrilled with the work, and Artisan Home Builders is the company I’d choose again. A+
Jim has a collaborative work style that I really enjoy. He listens to my ideas and always finds interesting solutions. He has a great eye for design and I consider him a creative partner. I am very happy with the results he has delivered on a full kitchen remodel, a custom entertainment center, and two extensive bathroom remodels.
Jim has done three bathroom renovations, installed doors, windows and tankless waters and smaller projects whenever I needed it. He was always responsive. He sticks to the budget he gives you and will give you a heads up before incurring any more costs for a change in scope. He uses the same team for his work which is great because you get to know them and trust them when Jim isn’t around. Jim works with the budget you have as well if you have a tight budget. He will come up with ways to do things more cheaply. But, he never gives on quality and he will tell you if he thinks it cannot work. I highly recommend Jim for any home renovation.
Jim is very professional, caring and consistently demonstrated patience and thoughtful partnership. Our project was difficult because the designs we received came in far over our construction budget and out of balance with the value of the home, even though we had set a clear number. Jim spent hours with us walking through various options and helped us define a clear plan that would address all of our needs. I trust Jim and highly recommend him to anyone who wants honest communication and quality work.
Jim is a true professional. Detailed oriented, thoughtful, courteous, and conscious of his client’s budget expectations. From the first discussion to the final clean-up, the quality of workmanship is superb. No surprises, except for completing our project prior to the stated schedule! Jim and his team has my recommendation! You will be pleased.
We have worked with Jim for a number of remodeling projects including 3 bathrooms, a kitchen, an office, and our laundry room. Jim has always delivered outcomes that we like. He is responsive, and his teams continue to support their work over time.
Jim is a detailed and creative designer for kitchens and bathrooms. His cabinetry is of the best quality and he will oversee the installation to ensure perfect results.
