We had, had several contractors come and look at the space and give us a bid for two bedrooms, full bath, and finishing the family room. Everyone of them asked us "what do you see here"? Some of the other contractors asked us for any drawn out plans. We do not know how to do this. When I spoke initially with Berry Built I explained that neither my husband or myself are architects and we needed help with the design as well as the construction. Matt & Sara came in July to look at the basement. They took lots of pictures and measurements. I did tell them that we had a budget. They explained that they would need a few weeks to put a plan together and they would call us when things were ready for us to come and look the plans over and discuss any questions we would have. Sara gave me a web site to go to, for us to look at possible design ideas. I love the web site! We met a couple of months later to look at there design ideas. Since we are not in any hurry to get the work done we were good with waiting a couple of months to look at any design ideas they had. We met them at there office and they informed us that they had 2 different plans for us to look at. They told us about how they talked in detail with there electrical and plumbing contractors on how to work the space for the bathroom. They were trying how not to move any plumbing and to work with what was already there. We wanted a Jacuzzi tub but no shower. We have two walk in showers upstairs but not tub. The first plan they showed us was wonderful. They had looked at things that we had never considered. They reworked the entrance to the bathroom and the bedroom beautifully. The second plan was almost liked the first but with just a few changes. Basically, we fell in love with the first design. Matt then explained how the plan moves forward and the initial cost of each plan. We had a budget in mind but never told them what the total budget amount was. It was at this point my husband and I went home and looked at the budget and discussed all our options. Unfortunately because we did not have a realistic idea of costs we are going to have to put the project on hold for some time. We do like the plans and would like to have Berry Built do the project but not until we have the funds saved up. We are very flexible and have time on our side, we feel that we can wait until we have and additional $25,000.00 saved. Matt and Sara are easy to work with and to talk too. They are budget conscious and tried to work with all the plumbing constraints that are present. They have a beautiful plan and we will hopefully work with them in the future.
