It’s why our clients love us!” Felix explains. Toys include lazy susans and dividers.
What does Felix enjoy about his work?
Felix enjoys interacting with people and listening to their needs. He also loves following the progress of his clients’ projects from the “first nail that goes in to the last nail that’s put in!”
A client wanted Felix to renovate his old kitchen into a more contemporary design. The client wanted custom white cabinetry, black quartz countertops and as much storage space as possible. Woodpecker designed a kitchen with ceiling to floor cabinetry, a counter depth wine cooler, built-in refrigerator, two sinks and a white tile backplash. They also incorporated many other hidden space saving features, like drawer spacers and a super susan, which ended up creating this sleek and spacious kitchen.
