WHAT
OUR
CLIENTS
SAY

The people at Craftsman Design did a site visit, talked with me and my husband extensively, and came back with several options in detail drawings. We worked collaboratively and came up with plans that fully expressed our vision of what we wanted our living room and dining room to look like and function. The work was very professional and the sawdust contained. We are totally enjoying our Craftsman remodeled living room and dining room. These are great people to work with.
