A DIY project for an outdated Fort Greene home
“With Sweeten you get cut and dry options. It takes the uncertainty out of chasing down leads.”
–Billy F., Fort Greene resident
Today we’re excited to bring you our first site visit of 2013! Billy & Sally’s renovation started last May when the couple posted to Sweeten, a free service matching renovators with vetted general contractors, to help convert their newly purchased, but outdated flat in Fort Greene into an open and fully-updated home. The couple had purchased the apartment a month earlier with immediate intentions to renovate, and interestingly, they wanted to do the work themselves. Being practical, however, they opted to hire a contractor to carry out the initial structural, electrical & repair work, and would save the kitchen renovation and new hardwood floor installation for themselves. After reviewing and meeting their matches from theSweeten network, Billy & Sally chose to work with Jon Eklund of ecostruct llc on these initial project components.
“I give Jon at ecostruct the thumbs up and would certainly recommend him to others. Likewise with Sweeten.”
