When we moved to a larger house last September, we were finally able to move forward on our dream project – converting an extra bedroom downstairs into a home library. We attended the Calgary Home and Design Show and spoke with a number of renovation contractors about the feasibility of building our library. To be honest, our initial discussions with various contractors left us feeling quite uninspired and disappointed. But then we spoke with James, Karla and Elysia of Mayfield Renovations Ltd. Their immediate enthusiasm for our project, pertinent questions, and genuine understanding of the structural and aesthetic desires of the confirmed bibliophile was both impressive and enervating. We knew we had found the right renovation company.
The room we wanted to renovate was irregularly shaped and presented a number of design challenges. The design that Mayfield created was truly innovative and exciting, utilizing virtually every bit of available space for our book collection. They worked with us every step of the way, incorporating our ideas and suggesting remarkable concepts.
The actual physical work was completed in a timely manner with a minimum of inconvenience to us. All of Mayfield’s contractors (carpentry, electrical, painting, floor installation) were, to a person, highly professional and a genuine pleasure to meet. Karla, James and Elysia regularly came to our house to oversee the work in process, and they answered and addressed any questions we might have. They were a joy to have in our home and we feel like we have made new friends.
In the end, the design far exceeded what we had been picturing in our mind’s eye. Our humble idea for a home library has become the showcase room in our home – all completed within the budget we had decided upon. Our friends and family have all been blown away by the elegance of our new library.
We would not hesitate to recommend Mayfield Renovations Ltd for any home renovation project. We know that we will be working with them again in the future – we’ve got some ideas for a backyard patio that we’d love to have them design.
