I built this beach front home to comply with FEMA regulations requiring the living space to be above the base flood elevation. Following approved exceptions closely, I designed a ground level entry opening into a large foyer for the elevator and sweeping curricular stairs leading to the upper floors. The rear patios span the length of the home and open up to a beach level lanai and a meandering walking path through the sea oats to the beach.

Bonita Bay, Bonita Springs, FL
I have completed 3 projects for the Otero’s to date. Recently, I completely remodeled their butler’s pantry and laundry room. We are in the design stage for a major master bath addition that is planned for spring 2015.
Here is what Mr. Otero wrote in a review on Houzz.com for me regarding our first project together.
“Keith served as the overall project manager of a major outdoor-living expansion my wife and I undertook in the fall of 2012. He was responsible for managing every facet of the project from the initial work of helping us settle on a design, and the features to include or exclude, to contracting and pricing, as well as sorting out and researching options, selecting and managing subcontractors, being very considerate of our relationships with neighbors, securing necessary approvals, scheduling and attending inspections, insisting with subcontractors that no detail could be overlooked or compromised. At the same time, the initial phases of the project had significant time constraints and Keith was also managing larger projects. Despite those problems, we never felt that our project was disadvantaged. Keith has many years of hands-on construction management experience which benefited us in many ways from large to small. The resulting improvement in our property has greatly increased the use we can make of our home, the ease with which we can now entertain and the personal enjoyment we derive from it. We are completely satisfied. Keith fully deserves five stars and more for his work with us.”

I managed a whole house remodel for Mrs. Blumen. She continues to hire me on a consulting and contractor basis. She is building a new home in Canada and has hired me to review all the plans, contracts, etcetera for her as an owner’s representative. I am starting a new roof top deck project for her, Fall of 2014.
Mrs. Blumen wrote the following review for me on Linkedin.com:
“Keith was the project manager on the head-to-toe renovation of our home in Florida. Keith is both big-picture and detail-oriented, with a wonderful sense of design, an unusual combination, which made him a hands-on contributor to every aspect of the renovation. He is focused, energetic, unfailingly positive, and a complete pleasure to work with. Keith created a supportive, disciplined working environment with high quality subcontractors, individual experts who worked collaboratively to produce the best possible results for our home. I have never had such an easy, pain-free renovation. I would recommend Keith enthusiastically, without reservation, and plan to use him again in the future.”
Breantt Wollis - Customer
Majestic Country Club, Fort Myers, FL
I did a whole house remodel for Mr. Wollis and his wife. We redesigned the entire master suite and kitchen. The home was dated so we upgraded almost every surface of the home. The entire process took place while the Wollis’s were in Canada.
Mr. Wollis gave me the following reviews on Linkedin.com and Houzz.com:
“Keith did an incredible job on our remodeling project, from design to completion, working with us from abroad. Couldn't be happier with the results.”
“Couldn't be happier with how the project turned out. We did a complete gut and redo of our place. Keith turned our ideas in a dream retreat, even with the challenges of us being out of the country, his emails and communication made the process seamless. Easy to work with and came up with some great suggestions and workarounds when dealing with existing construction. Wouldn't hesitate to use his expertise again.”

“I had the pleasure of working with Keith on a number of jobs this past year. His attention to detail, cleanliness, professionalism, and customer satisfaction are second to none. It was refreshing to work with Keith as he has a real passion for each job. He ran each job as if it were his own home and showed a great deal of respect to the client and their property. Keith operates in a class of his own. He is a class act.”
Scott Carroll - Colleague
Owner, JS Carroll Electric
Scott wrote the following review for me on Houzz.com:
“My name is Scott Carroll. I am owner/operator of JS Carroll Electric. I have had the privilege of working with Keith on several projects over the last few years. On all the projects, his knowledge of construction and design, his communication skills, organization, and attention to detail have made my job so much easier. On some of the more demanding jobs, with tight deadlines, and very demanding homeowners, Keith always maintained a positive attitude, stayed focused and finished the projects on of before the deadlines. Not only is Keith a great contractor, he is an even better person. Keith is a man of honesty and integrity, both in business and outside of work.”
