"The Grey Door provided work that was simply excellent. Beautifully built and well-crafted work. I love the attention to detail and will use them again for future work. Their design in the bathroom created just the right accent and complements the look of the wood. I can tell they have an eye towards excellent work and it is well appreciated by us. And they cleaned up after their work as well, which I greatly appreciate."

"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."

"I hired The Grey Door to install a Trex deck on my house. Chris spent all the time needed to make sure that the deck looked and felt like perfection. Chris was able to identify obstacles and plan ahead to accomplish the project early and under budget. The Grey Door was always prompt, returned my calls timely and treated us with the upmost respect! If I ever have another project, The Grey Door will be my first call! Thank you Chris!

“Chris was highly recommended to us from a mutual friend. We had a variety of items (electrical, roofing, irrigation and carpentry) on our punch list to get us ready for selling our house. Chris got everything done quickly and expertly. We could not be happier and are raving fans of Chris.”
"Chris and Chelsea Travaglio are a dream team! If you have a listing that needs a little work to become market-ready, they will jump in to help bring out the best in the home. Chris is a versatile contractor who can handle everything from fix-it items to remodels. He is an extremely good listener and provides excellent customer service to homeowners at a time when it is most needed. Chelsea is a staging expert who really knows how to make any room shine and can magically bring out the personality of any home. If there is such a thing as a green thumb in the world of design...Chelsea has that! Chris and Chelsea are delightful and you will love working with them!"

"I have worked with Chris and Chelsea many times over the years. I am a REALTOR and personally hired Chris to do build a wine cellar in our basement. It was a dead pocket section under a staircase. He had to frame out the area, lay tile, put in some pre-wire for electrical, drywall, paint etc. It turned out awesome. Additionally, I have recommended them to clients for both repairs and staging. As an agent, I had a client with a punch list of repairs both listing the home and after getting under contract. The client was super happy with his work just as I was. I had another prior client that wanted to sell his home for max return and Chris brought in a team to do a pretty thorough "light remodel" on surfaces and repairs. He came in right on budget and managed the process extremely well. His work helped make the client the greatest return on his sale. Chelsea's staging is amazing and she staged while Chris prepared a Sammamish home that I listed. It was a smaller home and it sold for much higher $/sq ft than any others in the neighborhood. Based on the feedback I received from buyers and agents that went through - her staging really made the most of the home and made it super cute and functional. We sold for much higher than we would have without that work."
