M.O

The scope of our project was a remodel of the first floor of our home… kitchen, powder room, new built-ins, a new fireplace feature wall in our living room, and new entry way tile & cabinetry. We are very glad we went with Arete for this work!

From the start, the Arete Team was very organized and working with them was hassle free. From the first visit to our house, Davor and the team were very clear on laying out how their process works so we knew what to expect. Ivana and Vasi worked with us on the design and materials and really nailed it!  A previous designer we worked with told us the layout we wanted wasn’t possible but Arete was able to work out a design plan that gave us exactly what we were looking for.

Ivan was our main point of contact for the actual construction work and I can’t say enough great things about him. He kept us informed throughout so we always knew schedule and status. He pointed things out and when unexpected things were found (as is to he expected in projects like this), he took the time to explain  options and costs. The crews were all professional, courteous, and took time to answer questions we had.

Hearing horror stories of renovation projects that drag on forever, we were pleasantly surprised that the project was completed on time, actually a bit early.  Only took about two months from kitchen demo to having a completed functioning kitchen.  We’d be done by now if not for us adding some additional cabinetry halfway through the project, and Ivana and team were very flexible in working with us here to make these scope changes mid project!

Loving our new space and would absolutely recommend Arete and use them again for future work in our home!
