TSG Charleston: What is the most cherished space in your home?

MD: My new kitchen and den. We waited 5 years to do this renovation after living with a 1940’s galley kitchen. I finally have a functioning kitchen and a den to hang out in with my family.  I loved the fact that I could go more modern in this space. The rest of the house has antique heart pine flooring, so I made a change to a white washed pine to let people know this space was different.

TSG Charleston: Classic Remodeling and Construction did the renovation, how did they transform the space?

MD: The kitchen stayed in the same place, but was expanded. The original floor plan consisted of a small kitchen with a breakfast nook, and a hallway led directly to a screened porch. {Classic} took the space once occupied by the breakfast nook and screened porch and built an addition that allowed us to expand the kitchen space and create the sitting room.”

TSG Charleston: Classic has done several projects for you.  Why do you choose to work with them time and again?

MD: I use Classic Remodeling and recommend them to my clients because they do what they say they are going to do.  The quality of the work is as it should be, but the business side is what really makes a difference to me.  There are many contractors, who in the end, will give you a good product, but Classic makes the process so easy.  Bob Fleming is a great problem solver and the crew is fast, efficient, on time and they clean up after themselves!
