Client Response

"If there's such a thing as a dream team for home design and construction, The Grey Door Design & Build is that team. We recently contracted both Chris and Chelsea for complete renovation of the first floor of our home. After three months, here's what we love about The Grey Door:

Communication. We were always up to date on the status of the project, including when Chelsea and Chris, or other subcontractors, planned to arrive and when they left.

Flexible and patient. Our project ran into a number of snags outside of their control, prolonging the renovation. Despite having other client projects on their plate, we never felt as though they were trying to rush through us to move on. Chris methodically tackled each challenge with patience and perseverance, keeping us posted the entire time. 

Stewardship. Chris and Chelsea treated our project as if it were their own home. The worksite was left clean each day and they worked carefully around our belongings. In her design, Chelsea seamlessly mixes high-end finishes with budget-friendly pieces to maximize her spend.

Talent. Chris is a perfectionist in his work and a true craftsman. He never cuts corners, striving for the best result possible. Chelsea has an eye for every detail and happily takes feedback, adjusting as she goes. More often than not, her design proposals were spot-on – as if she knew exactly our style from speaking to us, even if we didn’t have a clue what it was. We couldn’t be more pleased with the results and will continue to work with them over the coming months and year for additional phases to our home."
