Keeping the Dust off Sleeping Beauty

We bid this job at a lower price than other contractors since we were able to self-perform so much of the work. We were also able to accommodate a few extra challenges – like procuring a crane to lift a massive sculpture up over the roof and down the stairwell. In addition, our client and her 95-year-old mother wanted to come and go as they wished. When they wanted to sleep there for the night, we would create a beautiful one-bedroom apartment for her in the midst of the construction. When they left, we would dismantle it and keep going.
