Our home renovation project with Kerr Construction involved completely updating and modernizing a mid-1930's bungalow while retaining its character and charm. It was a true team effort, with my husband and I working with our "team" from Kerr Construction - Eric Linzmeier, Dave Sillmans and Mark Austin as well as Anja Henche (independent design consultant.)
Eric and Dave guided us through the early stages and stresses of designers, permits and cost estimates and continued to meet with us weekly through the year-long, active construction phase. At these meetings, we discussed week-by-week progress and problems which allowed us to make timely decisions based on collaborative solutions.
Mark Austin came on as project supervisor after the project was several months underway. He quickly grasped the scope of the renovation and the inherent challenges of renovating an older home. An able carpenter and technology-savvy, Mark showed extensive knowledge of construction and available products and had good contacts with supporting independent tradesmen. He fit in well with our team approach and was a major contributor to weekly onsite meetings. He also showed admirable patience working with and mentoring his junior crew.
As our design consultant, Anja Henche brought her considerable expertise and modernist sensibility to the completion of the project. We worked well together finalizing new kitchen and bathroom layouts and finding the right balance between traditional and modern in products and finishes.
The Kerr team - Eric, Dave, Mark and Anja - were all unfailingly polite and professional throughout. They brought their considerable experience in the industry to the successful realization of our renovation project. Now 3 1/2 years after moving back in, we can attest that our house is a continuing pleasure to live in.
