My husband and I hired White Crane Construction to do a kitchen addition to our 1929 tudor and give the main living areas an overall much needed facelift. We had spent several years meeting with various builders and designers in the Twin Cities, White Crane was the first to come into our home, listen to our ideas and say, "Yes! We can do what you want in your budget!" Katie Jayden, their Senior Designer, was very clear about what our options would be to stick to our budget, keeping us financially in check throughout the entire process. Never having done anything like this before, we were worried about surprise bills or being over budget, because that's what always happens on HGTV, right? When we signed the contract, we were given a payment schedule and not one time were we billed more than what we planned for. In fact, one payment was even lower than planned due to some demo work we had done. We started our project in November, we were worried about the weather and staying warm while we were missing a roof and walls in our old kitchen. White Crane's and our Project Manager, Bill Braniff, and all the subs took extra care to keep us warm, putting up zipper doors, extra insulation, temporary heaters whatever was needed to do to keep us warm. One night after our dog had tried to go through the zipped up door and tore it down, Bill came over that evening to fix it so our family would be warm. Through every step of the project they were attentive to us was at that level. They were onsite every day at 7am, working hard and addressing any concerns (which were few) we had within hours. It's April now and our project is pretty much complete. Our kitchen and main living spaces turned out better than we could have ever imagined, they are all so beautiful. The design and materials used are on par with what I see in magazines and we feel very, very lucky to have this space in our home. I have no doubt that our A+ building experience and the finished product has everything to do with White Crane and their work ethic/style. I honestly have to say I miss all the subs being around, we really enjoyed getting to know them. I hope that if you are thinking of remodeling you will consider using White Crane, I am so glad we did!
