My experience in point form:
2 builds!!!(Not many can say that)!
Recommended trades were great
Great patience when I changed my mind, I am picky after all
Designs ideas for beautiful yet practical function and explained the whys and why nots
Helping me define my style (remember "refined rustic")
Willing to work with my ideas, style, furnishings
Staging and picture hanging
And we had so much fun along the way!
