I referred Jonathan to a friend of mine, who also had a great experience with Renov8it fixing up her place. This year, I was brave enough to take on two building projects for the first time, due to my belief that Jonathan and his team would be able to deliver, based on the success of the three above-mentioned projects.
The project is very high-end. The client bought a beautiful place and wanted to change it from a Provençale style to a younger, modern & slick feel. The client challenged me with requests to equal a six star hotel. I was petrified at first. Low and behold, Jonathan and his team could pull off all the wishes in the world! There were immense challenges, like marble tiles the size of elephants, integrated mirrors, under floor heating in a shower! Yes, you read correctly – a shower!! The part that really impressed me and why I would continue to do business with this team in the future is, when the chips were down and things happened, like tiles were not marked correctly by suppliers and were installed upside down, I freaked out but, Jonathan rectified the problem, with no expense to the client and the client is elated with the final result. We are still meeting the deadline, regardless of the detail along the way. After this project, I feel confident that any ideas I get in Paris or Milan can be Implemented in the Western Cape, as long as I work with Jonathan and his team.
An opposite brief of the high-end project. A long standing client of mine bought a 60’s style home for position. Architects are busy drawing up plans for the future. Our request was to make a “Clean Slate” on the site , so that it is modern and can be used for the next couple of years, without any sixties feeling, until the plans are approved. The client only got access to the site after transfer at the end of October and would like to move in mid December. This is a tall order at any stretch of your imagination.. Changing 4 avocado green / brown, etc. bathrooms into a modern feel.. Red tiles and avocado green carpets and timber slanted ceilings.. Anthracite heaters to be removed. I hope they have pictures as, a picture is worth more than I thousand words, I’ve been told..
The project is still in flight but, knowing the team, I have confidence that they will deliver on time and, that the client will be able to move in by mid December, as requested.
