Marrowstone Island Renovation

Our homeowners had a truly unique renovation in mind to go with their secluded wooded property – a Storybook-style house; an architectural style that trended in the U.S and England in the 1920s. Denizen Construction saw their vision, and worked with Tori and Doug to bring this whimsically majestic, Storybook renovation to life. Located on a beautiful, multi-acre landscaped lot on Marrowstone Island. Built in 1998, this large suburban ranch house featured the typical mid-90s design treatments, with a Northwest twist; cedar siding, notched-corner garage doors, tile floors, wallpaper, valances, metal mini-blinds and indoor shutter treatments.

“Thank you, Denizen for helping us complete our dream. Truly wonderful experience!”

“My wife and I had been working on the design/build of our dream home for several years.”

“Our problem was implementing our love for architectural salvage, family antiques and materials taken from the property while still having the style and modern amenities to live comfortably.  Denizen Homes became the solution. Laura, Chris, and their team of great craftsmen worked with us to build and finish a fantastic Legacy Home in the woods that we absolutely love.  Their talent, experience, and knowledge of how to bring all those different aspects together was the key making our house a beautiful home.  There is no place that we’d rather be than at home, which is how it should be.

Thank you, Denizen for helping us complete our dream. Truly wonderful experience!”

“We love our Denizen home! …exceeded our expectations…”

“We love our Denizen home! The quality of the craftsmanship, the design, the team and the support all exceeded our expectations.  The few punch list items that we had, the team was extremely responsive, professional and did quality work. I can’t thank the entire team and Denizen more and would highly recommend them for anyone considering working with them.”

“Outstanding modern Built Green Home”

Our new home is an outstanding modern Built Green home with state of the art features. We love our well-built home and have thoroughly enjoyed living in it. The Denizen team has been super helpful and cooperative. Not only do they educate you about each feature and functionality of your home, but also respond and act promptly if you have any concerns or issues that need attention. Our experience working with them has been absolutely fantastic and positive. Thank you, Denizen!

“We love our remodeled kitchen … We are looking forward to many years of cooking in our beautiful kitchen.”

“We love our remodeled kitchen. We are foodies who love to cook and entertain. The first remodel of the kitchen, laundry area, and powder room was thirty years ago. Appliances were tired and needed replacing; more storage and counterspace was needed in the laundry room, and wood floors in these areas needed to be refinished or replaced with tile.

Laura of Denizen was able to very quickly note some changes that would make the kitchen area more open and usable. They were ideas we hadn’t even considered: moving the refrigerator, removing a stove/island surround, putting LED lighting under pass-through cabinets, changing one cabinet to a liquor storage unit and using pull out drawers throughout. The Denizen employees and subcontractors were always polite and easy to have in our home. The construction areas were sealed off from the rest of the house which kept dust to a minimum. The quality and expertise of the subcontractors was impressive. Laura’s attention to detail is an asset. She was very willing to let us take the lead on design details such as paint colors, wallpaper designs, tile and granite selection. As with any major remodel, there are ‘bumps in the road’. We were able to work with Laura and Chris Jolley to come to satisfactory conclusions.

We are looking forward to many years of cooking in our beautiful kitchen.”

“The home is fantastic!”

…Before buying, I met with a Denizen Principal, Chris, who explained their Certified Built Green philosophy and construction practices. As a prospective buyer, I appreciated hearing someone so passionate about going above and beyond construction code for many important aspects of the home. As someone living in the home, I’m thankful for this attention to high quality…

“…the quality of Denizen’s service throughout our first year of living in our home, far surpassed our expectations…”

…We knew the home was constructed and designed well when we decided to purchase it; however, the quality of Denizen’s service throughout our first year of living in our home, far surpassed our expectations.

You and your colleagues were always available to answer any of our seemingly endless questions about the interior and exterior of the house and its various systems and appliances. You immediately responded to all of our emails and phone calls. When we decided to replace the carpet with wood, you quickly gave us an estimate and not only arranged to have the work done, but also arranged to have our furniture moved and re-moved to accommodate the work.

No matter how many times we contacted you, you never made us feel less than important, no matter how trivial the issue or question we had may have been. Clearly, Denizen employees understand the importance of customer service, a quality that is not exactly common nowadays. Even out neighbors remarked on how respectful and courteous the people working on building our home were to them during the construction process…

…“We cannot recommend Denizen enough and we are so incredibly happy with the final product – they truly brought our vision to life.”

“My husband and I contacted Denizen after interviewing two other contractors. We were looking for someone to help us with our home remodel that included asbestos remediation, updating the kitchen, updating three bathrooms, installing new windows and flooring throughout our home, updating our HVAC system and painting the interior and exterior of our home (it was a major project). Choosing Denizen to help us through this project was an easy choice – Laura and Chris along with their team are all incredibly organized, communicative, knowledgeable and efficient. We really appreciated their design perspective when choosing fixtures, paint colors and other finishes throughout our home. Their expertise was invaluable to us. The entire process from start to finish was a breeze. We cannot recommend Denizen enough and we are so incredibly happy with the final product – they truly brought our vision to life.”

We have been in our new townhome for three months and couldn’t be happier. It is extremely comfortable and totally fits our new lifestyle.

“It is my pleasure to recommend Denizen…”

It is my pleasure to recommend Denizen Development Group for all development/ construction needs. My wife and I recently purchased a home from Denizen and have been very satisfied with our choice. Denizen built the home with quality material, thoughtfulness and attention to detail. They have been prompt with responding to any questions, concerns and all minor adjustments needed at our house.
