Terry completed our bathroom remodel for us. I loved his design and that he was a great communicator. I felt very comfortable working with Terry and his team. Remodeling can be stressful, but Terry kept us cool, calm and on budget! We are enjoying our beautiful bathroom and we have James Chris Design to thank for it!

Just completed remodel of kitchen. Did quality work with quality craftsmen. Terry kept on top of the project from start to finish. He listened to my ideas and made some appropriate suggestions. We are very pleased with the finished remodel and plan to use James Chris Design for future projects.

We had a fantastic experience. Terry and Brian provided excellent customer service and became like family by the end of the project. I truly appreciated their attention to detail. There was not a day when a subcontractor was at the house without either Terry or Brian present. We remodeled a guest bathroom, master bathroom, and kitchen without a single issue.
