Whole House Transformation


“Thanks for a great job on my remodel project. The results certainly exceed the expectations I had for what could be accomplished. I was impressed by the way you developed a plan to transform my small, outdated house with a dysfunctional floor plan into a cool space that meets all of my needs, including a modern, well designed kitchen, a beautiful master bathroom, a powder room, a new window, a redesigned basement stairway that greatly improves the flow of the house, and outdoor landscaping. Friends and family members who have seen the before and after are blown away and can’t believe it is the same house. In the past I’ve experienced remodel projects on other houses. I was very impressed with you and your team. The finish details are excellent. Your crew was courteous, and every work day something was accomplished on the project, even when weather conditions were less than ideal. This meant that the remodel was completed sooner than I would have expected, minimizing the inconvenience to me. I also felt the project costs were reasonable. Unlike some of the other projects I’ve been involved with, there were no cost increases unless I initiated a change. Thanks again, and if you need a reference or recommendation in the future, don’t hesitate to let me know.”

“Prior to the beginning of the project, Josh had many helpful suggestions to hold down costs but deliver a kitchen much improved in durability and looks. His sources for flooring, cabinets, countertops and paint were local and reputable. The cabinets are a beautiful oak replacement, made by an Amish craftsman north of Madison.

Josh choreographed his staff of wrecking crew, electrician, flooring expert, painter and installation staff so that no time was lost. The job would have been completed on time, but for scheduling issues with countertop production.

All staff were great and happy to explain what was happening and why. (I have a fairly convoluted and outdated electrical system—my next project.) The project was finished (except as noted above) on time and within budget.

Josh was thorough in explaining options (LED lighting under my cabinets and commercial-grade wood laminate) that would increase costs somewhat and was careful to make sure I knew what I was getting and how that would impact total project costs.

I selected this remodeler based on the experiences of my next-door neighbor who had used him first and heartily recommended him. I would absolutely second this recommendation.”

“From our initial meeting with Josh and throughout our project, the service, professionalism, craftsmanship and timeliness were
EXCEPTIONAL. Not only is Josh a dream to work with, his crew is equally as professional and talented. There was no detail too small for them to notice, point out and address immediately after asking for our preferences. The way in which they conducted business, handled our home’s contents and personal items and ensured our home was always safely secured was really beyond our expectations. Josh even plowed 19” of snow from our long driveway! The finished remodeling is beautiful and exceeds our expectations. We are already planning to have Legacy back to do our lower-level family room. I really can’t emphasize strongly enough how satisfied we are with not only our project, but also with the fact that it was completed in record time (on time) by Josh and his highly skilled crew. To summarize, Legacy is beyond awesome, and not only would we hire them again, we will be hiring them again.”

“Josh was the general contractor and the primary point of contact for our entire experience. He was very courteous and very responsive to all our requests. (He even went to great lengths to fix a paint-color issue, which turned out to be a shadow and lighting problem.) His pricing and quoting were very fair and honest and upfront. We received several bids from other contractors, and Josh was in the middle of the road from a pricing perspective. But we did feel the most comfortable working with him. The only minor downside was that Josh was busy with a lot of projects, which we understood with the good contractors, so our timeline for completion was pushed out a couple weeks longer than what we would have liked. However, the end product was definitely custom-built and handcrafted with quality wood products.”

“I’ve hired a lot of contractors. What I have never before hired, however, is a contractor as freaking phenomenal as Josh. And when I say “freaking phenomenal,” I’m grossly understating how happy I am with his work, professionalism, honesty, etc. Usually contractors find all kinds of things that they didn’t see when they bid the job, and those things always cause the price to rise. That was not the case with Josh. What’s more, the cabinets that he was working on did not come apart as easily as he thought they would,  but he never raised the price one cent. The amount he charged me on my invoice was TO THE PENNY what he said it would be. You just don’t find that in contractors today. He and his crew were extremely respectful of our business and our customers and really went out of their way to work around our schedule and our customers. His crew was clean-cut, well-spoken, polite and a pleasure to have on the premises. The quality of work Josh and his crew turned out was nothing short of spectacular.  As a matter of fact, I believe that the furniture looked BETTER after he was done retrofitting it than when it came from the factory. I would never hesitate to use Josh in the future, and I highly recommend him.”

“We are very happy with the results. If we were unsatisfied, then he would fix it for us. He had great design ideas. He does a variety of projects—from laying a hardwood floor to creating a custom tiled shower to remodeling a kitchen. He is a very easy person to work with. He responds quickly to emails and phone calls and completed the project in a reasonable amount of time.”

“We had an existing banister that was built with wide spacing between the spindles — not kid-friendly. Legacy (Josh) did an excellent job making new spindles to match the existing ones. . . . You can’t even tell the difference between the old and new spindles; the stain and style match so well. The cost was exactly as estimated, the workmanship was excellent, and everything was cleaned up nicely. They were also very accommodating of my schedule, which I greatly appreciated.”
