"I had bought an older home for my retirement years which needed extensive renovations such as building a new kitchen and taking down walls to complete an open concept plan.
I hired Marshall-Built with James and his team who had been recommended to me. Renovations aren't fun but we got successfully through the process.
I am now living very happily and thankfully in my home which fits my needs." - Nora
