"We were incredibly fortunate to have had Dale as a member of the team who worked on our project. Our home was designed by David Adler in the early 1900's and we remodeled the original residence and more than doubled the size with an addition. We were very focused on making certain that the remodel and the addition were perfectly married with the original, and that required great attention to detail and a high level of craftsmanship. Dale was instrumental in making sure we achieved our goals, working primarily with the antique wood throughout the residence. His impressive craftsmanship and artistry ensured that the antique paneling from the original house was perfectly retrofitted into the new space, which meant that in some places he had to create "old panelling" out of new wood to match the original. He created a new transom above a door imported from an embassy in Cuba, and finished it to look as if it came with the antique door. The care and precision with which he approaches his craft is truly inspiring and our finished home would not be nearly as lovely had he not been a part of the team. But perhaps as important as the quality of Dale's work is his easy manner and pleasant personality. As anyone knows who has been part of a long construction project, the experience is in large part determined by the personalities involved. Having Dale on the team ensured that the work was beautiful, and the experience was wonderful!"- Owner of the Noble Brandon Judah Coachhouse in Lake Forest, IL.
