Craig Knott (Houseworks Unlimited) has done work for us for years, including, among other things, a bathroom remodel, conversion of a screened-in porch to a sunroom, and now our latest project - a kitchen remodel. We needed to stay within a certain budget, and Craig worked with us on that by providing estimates of various options such as wood vs. vinyl bow window and tile vs. hardwood floors. He kept us apprised of problems/issues that were uncovered along the way (e.g., asbestos flooring underneath the existing floor) and the additonal costs associated with mitigating the problem. Although the original schedule did not account for the unexpected, Craig worked late and on the weekends to adhere to the schedule as much as possible. The areas where he was working were kept neat and clean; when the work was done, the only thing we were left with was a beautiful new kitchen. While Houseworks Unlimited is pricey in comparison to other contractors, you definitely get what you pay for. The quality of the workmanship is excellent; we wouldn't use anyone else!
I'm glad everything worked out.....thanks for being patient. We really appreciate the positive review and look forward to our next project.
The quality of the workmanship.
We were completely satisfied with the final product. also, Craig (owner) is very knowledgeable and easy to work with. would definitely contract with them again!
Houseworks Unlimited did not fall short of my expectations in any area.
We would highly recommend Craig for the smallest home renovation project to building a complete home. Housework's quality of work sets the standard for the contracting industry. The company provides an excellent work product for a competative price.
Houseworks has completed several projects on our 105 year old house. Craig's expertise and knowledge of every facet of home building was invaluable. We are particularly impressed with Craig's ability to scope out a project and work with the homeowner to ensure that the completed project meets your expectations. Craig's carpentry skills are unparalelled and his ability to provide innovative solutions to the difficulties associated with renovating on older home were critical to the success of the projects undertaken on our house.
Thanks for the pat on the back! After doing this for over 30 years, I have learned a thing or two about working on older homes. It's a shame more of these entry level carpenters aren't trained in the some of the basics that were used 100 years ago. We find, way to often, that fine craftsmanship isn't repaired and it just removed. In it's place is another production piece. Thanks for allowing us to do it right and save a piece of history!

I would recommend Craig Knott and Houseworks Unlimiited, Inc. without reservation.
Craig mainteined contact well after the project was complete to ensure that everything was as we wished, and returned quickly to fix minor issues as they arose in the final stages.
During the construction, Craig and the plumbers decided that the pipe in the basement would be replaced (over and above what was contracted for). Thi was done without additional costs to us. Wow.
