NOW ACCEPTING CLIENTS IN
Starting in April 2022
From our clients
“Finding Mustard Seed Renovations not long after they began taking on clients truly felt like Fate. We were looking to build or renovate and, when we came across our potential dream home, the next step was finding someone to turn our dream into a reality. We spoke with several companies across Charlotte/Concord area. Some companies never even replied to our inquiry, one seemed to say their kitchens would take the entire budget, and another had a really delayed start time for any job due to scheduling. MSR had the best communication by far. They were the only ones who talked in depth with me first and MSR even got some rough room measurements from our realtor, Pinterest inspiration from myself, and an idea of our style and things wed like to do prior to our first in person meeting. By the time I met MSR, it felt like I already knew them because of all the correspondence. And on that first in person meeting where we walked through our soon-to-be home, she pulled up a sketch of our main two makeovers-the Kitchen & the Master Bath. I can not say it enough to MSR who tour our now completed home: the design-build benefit of this husband/wife duo is a value added that Im not sure I can even quantify. I could say all the things I liked and all the Pinterest pics I wanted, but if a contractor asked me to put pen to paper and solidify all of my ideas into one cohesive plan-I could never. Between Caroline and Sherman, we got the house of our dreams with some additional items we didnt even expect at the beginning(ie-my new remodeled pantry!) They were able to keep us in budget too, most importantly! We were the first project of a large scope for them. However, both have experience in their respective fields, and they were also flipping houses prior to taking on clients. What really sold us besides the communication, which Ive already mentioned, was the fact that these two were clearly very genuine, sincere, hard working, and trustworthy. We have given references to quite a few people with nightmare stories of other contractors who leave job sites, dont fix things or make them worse, etc. Now, it goes almost without saying, that construction or renovation projects can and most likely will have some ups and downs. We had some issues with subcontractors for our project but, even though no fault of their own, they were always willing to come by to resolve an issue or to look for another professional to correct it. They are experiencing the same hurdles as everyone else right now which is just finding enough workers but they always hustled! At no point did we have concern that the work would be any less than perfect when all was said and done.As for the scope of our project, while we did not need to knock down walls or move plumbing, we did redo our kitchen, our master bath, our guest bath, our half bath, change out stair railings, frame out and refinish the fireplace, redo the pantry, have MSR provide some custom woodwork on quite a few pieces (vent hood cover, barn door, bench with push to open drawers), change out all recessed lights and add new pendant lighting in the kitchen and master bath. We also had Hvac installed in our sunroom. We built into our garage a bit to create my non negotiable wine/coffee nook. MSR also designed some custom seat cushions for our breakfast nook (where we also added shiplap) and the bench reading nook built for our daughters playroom. There was a lot of detail work and a lot of focus put on making all of these aesthetic changes form one cohesive picture. Everyone now comments on how the flow of our entire home is so perfectly suited from one room to the next. And Mustard Seed is who we credit for that. Caroline creates and curates the vision, and Sherman brings it to life! And dont be fooled, Caroline’s quite handy herself! Our project happened in two phases (planned from the beginning due to supply lead times for new semi custom cabinets) : most of the work, besides the kitchen, happened in the first phase before we moved in. About a month after we moved in, the kitchen reno began because our kitchen cabinets had finally arrived. So we experienced it both ways. I am work from home and they were communicative regarding any workers who would be on site with or without them. They were clean and respectful of our space and property. All in all, we can not stop showing off our home and raving about the company who made it all possible. We are so glad we found Mustard Seed Renovations when we did. We are so honored to be a part of their coming up story and to see it from the beginning- we know theyre going places and we feel like we got in on the ground floor before the secret was out! We plan to keep in touch with them and we will always go to them for any future home project needs!”
“Reviews are tough for me, I tend to be very critical of people and the work preformed. Overall Mustard Seed Renovations did an amazing job transforming our home. Did everything go smooth everyday? No, but with all the supply chain issues and the lack of people who want to earn an honest living we did not expect it to be a smooth project. MSR did everything humanly possible to give us exactly what we wanted and they rolled with the flow when we made changes. The amazing part to me was it was just the two of them. These are two honest, hard working young people who are working hard to get their business off the ground and keep all their customers happy all the time. The key is patience and not expecting miracles on unrealistic timelines while you also make changes to the project. The biggest problem is he has a hard time saying no, he just wants to make the customer happy. Truthfully that's impossible 100% of the time but they try harder than most people I've encountered. If you want great work done, your home to look exactly they way you envision I strongly recommend you hire Mustard Seed Renovations. They make a great team. The highest recommendation I can give them is I would hire them again for any project we may have.”
