To Whom It May Concern:
Almost five years ago we moved from St. Louis to Indianapolis to be closer to family. Due to a number of circumstances, we made a very hasty decision and purchased a home that in retrospect was not in good condition or particularly attractive. Four and half years later we can now say our home is exceptionally beautiful and we owe it all to Chris, his WrightWorks team, and his partnership with designer Matt Harris.
We met Chris through a friend of a friend of our daughter. He initially came to provide us with an estimate to construct two bookcases on either side of an unattractive fireplace, build a deck, and reface our kitchen cabinets. We laugh with Chris about it now, but years later those are really the only projects he hasn’t done for us. Basically, ¾ of the house was gutted. Chris remodeled our kitchen and great room, created a mud room, built a suspended library, an entryway, a glass staircase, remodeled the third level, installed a beautiful large round window, gutted and constructed four amazing bathrooms including two master baths, and created a master suite from a cramped 5 room in-law apartment–which now features a wall of windows and sliding doors overlooking a newly landscaped courtyard. Everything that can be done in a remodel Chris and his team accomplished—including all new interior woodwork, doors and hardware. They then turned to the outside of the house which previously looked like a series of white boxes with little to no curb appeal. It is now a beautiful home with dark grey brick, all new cedar trim, cedar shakes and a fabulous custom cedar pergola across the entire front walkway of the house leading up to the entrance.
During the course of the renovations, Chris encountered numerous structural problems with our house, including a bathroom floor that needed to be jacked up, an attic with a sinking floor, rotted exterior window trim, a roof that resembled Swiss cheese and the resultant water and mold damage that occurred–and the list goes on. Chris was incredibly patient and thorough in explaining things to us every step of the way. There were many days that my homesickness (my husband Tom is from Indiana) and sense that the problems would never end got the best of me, but Chris and his team were always there to assure me that there was light at the end of tunnel.
And was there ever!! Our home is now incredible and has exceeded our wildest expectations of how it would turn out. The quality and integrity of the design, materials and craftsmanship is exemplary. Chris and his team’s integrity, honesty and professionalism are above reproach. Chris’ passion for what he does and his drive for perfection is evident in every corner, joint, grout line, tile cut and tile placement. If it wasn’t exactly right he would pursue it until it met his very high standard of excellence. His punch list was always far longer than ours ever was.
One of the comments visitors frequently make about our home is the evidence “that it is extremely well thought out” down to every little detail. This is due to Chris’ and Matt’s clear vision over the four year renovation which by the way was not initially designed as a whole but in phases as we moved from space to space. “Well thought out” is only one of the comments – others are “beautiful”, “amazing”, “fabulous”, “the most stunning home we’ve seen.”
Without reservation we recommend Chris to anyone considering a remodeling project large or small. His integrity, honesty, passion, craftsmanship, sense of design, and professionalism are unequaled in this business and quite frankly in any business with whom we have been involved. The same standards are evident in his team as well. He and his team members are a delight to work with and the outcome for us has been nothing short of phenomenal.
