“When we were deliberating whether to buy an intriguing 15-year-old home in Darnestown, we met with a representative from Hopkins and Porter to discuss the possibilities of remodeling it to fit our family's needs. We were immediately attracted to what we recognized as an important optimistic realism from H&P's Ken Hurdle. He was remarkable at listening, hearing and being careful to understand exactly what we were trying to achieve. He was never intimidated by the craziness of our ambitions but, at the same time, he was never hesitant to give us his honest professional outlook as to what those crazy dreams would factually entail. Over the following months, we learned we could completely trust the H&P team either to figure out ways to transform our visions into reality or to help us adjust our expectations into financial feasibility. Unexpected challenges that arose along the way - as happen in every remodeling project - hardly seemed to phase our H&P team. They almost welcomed them as interesting challenges and launched in to find creative solutions. We feel that the end product of our extended remodel job is a resounding success. The unfinished basement has been transformed into a combination of recreation rooms, bathrooms, sound-insulated bedroom, and a mahogany office of the most meticulous detailed craftsmanship. The new addition of a connected three-car garage with guest apartment was so masterfully built and with such careful matching of rock, paint, trim, etc. that it's nearly impossible to tell that it's not part of the original home. The H&P team stopped at nothing to make sure every detail of our project was completed to our full satisfaction. They demonstrated the highest standards of professional integrity and became lifelong friends to our family in the process. We couldn't give Hopkins and Porter any higher recommendation. Contact us and we'll gladly tell you more!”
