As an interior designer, I’ve worked with Craig on a few residential projects. He’s really dedicated to selecting the right elements to achieve a complete and finished design for the client. It’s a thorough understanding of how all of the parts should communicate with one another - both interior AND exterior. I’ve appreciated his professionalism and genuine attitude in working together, and this results in a quality project which is really what it’s all about.
