“Creative, efficient, success - these are the three words I would use to describe Melissa’s approach. I hired Melissa to transform my old office downstairs into a bedroom for my oldest daughter. My 11 year old was thrilled with the result which was beyond our imagination. She not only is gifted in organizing and designing but is very knowledgable about building structures and layout which gives customers assurance when it comes to implementing the plans. Melissa also has a good sense of humor and was an excellent choice for me and my family!"
