Dear Mr. Siebold:

My wife Pat and I just completed (or nearly completed) a complete renovation of our kitchen, laundry area/mudroom, powder room and eating area on the first floor of our home.  We wanted to let you know what a pleasure it was working with Alison Griffin on the project.

Our basic plan was to maintain the existing floor plan as much as possible, replace the aging cabinets and appliances, and to increase the amount of storage space and work areas relative to the existing kitchen.  We also wanted a stylish and tailored “look” for the finished product, but beyond these basic concepts our design plans were somewhat vague.

Alison met with us for an hour or so at your design center and then came to our home for a site visit.  By the next meeting she was sketching out design ideas for us to think about and within a relatively short period of time we had a fairly well-developed idea of what our new kitchen would look like.  The design process couldn’t have been easier from our point of view.

The plans themselves were meticulously detailed and accurate.  The contractors commented several times about how easy it was for them to work from the drawings Alison had done.  More importantly, her involvement didn’t end with the delivery of the plans.  Alison helped us throughout the project, picking out the right granite pieces for the countertops, helping us with appliance, fixture and finish choices, and working with the contractor to quickly resolve the issues that inevitably pop up on a project like this.

The end result is well beyond our expectations!  The storage areas and workspaces in the kitchen are bigger and better than before.  The entire first floor project area is more thoughtfully laid out, with a sensible differentiation between functional areas while maintaining a unified design, and it makes the entertaining area of our home much more livable.  In addition to all that, the “look” Alison achieved is absolutely beautiful.  We couldn’t be happier with the outcome.

Yours sincerely,


 John & Pat Hayden
