Areté is a gem. We hired Areté to design & build a 1-story addition + basement + deck to the back of our house. This was not our first renovation, but was by far the largest we’ve ever done. We are THRILLED with the result.

We got exactly what we wanted — more usable outdoor space, great entertaining space, a dedicated family room, and more storage.

Davor patiently explained the construction process, answered our numerous questions and walked through the options available within the design. His communication was always clear & prompt.

The interior wasn’t much — only 1 room — but Ivana & Dulio took all the time needed through several revisions to get the interior design exactly the way we wanted.

The construction took approximately 5 months, during which time we came to trust Ivan completely to handle anything that came up. He kept us informed every step of the way. And everything Areté built was built well.

The punch list at the end was pretty small and quickly resolved.

We would happily recommend Areté to others and would use them again for any future renovations.
