My husband and I considered using a design-build contractor, but I never would have ended up with the fabulous kitchen and screened porch Patrick Jarosinski designed. Patrick developed a design that was practical, elegant, and sophisticated and perfectly suited to our home’s existing architecture. More importantly, his professional involvement didn’t stop after he gave us our plans. Throughout the project he provided valuable advice, humor, and support along the way in my selection of colors, countertops, lighting, hardware, and just about everything else. Patrick held my contractor to a high building standard and was my advocate throughout the project. The truth is I had imagined and saved pictures of my dream kitchen for 20 years, and the end result, largely due to Patrick’s involvement, was a kitchen even more beautiful and perfectly designed than the kitchen of my dreams. Now I’m trying to think of another home improvement project so I can hire Patrick again.
