“Projects General Construction were the general contractors for a complete re-do of my 1970’s master bathroom. They were a pleasure to work with and I am very happy with the results. They were involved at every stage of the project from early design consultations through final sign off. The job was completed on time, within budget and with minimal impact on our lives. Christi and Cherilyn provided extensive oversight of my remodel. Cherilyn was there every morning to meet with that day’s subs, discuss the work needed and consult with me. I can highly recommend this professional company and would not hesitate to use them again.”
"We have hired Projects by Giffin & Crane for 3 separate jobs. Christi Clayton and Cherilyn Milton are punctual, scrupulously honest, straight-forward, highly organized, and extremely competent. When they price a job, they hold to that price. When they provide a schedule, they hold to that schedule. Christi or Cherilyn was present at the beginning of every day and at the end to make certain that the day's work had been completed to both their and our satisfaction. Their sub-contractors are detailed-oriented, pleasant, and clean up after themselves at the end of every day. Our experiences with Projects have been uniformly excellent and I would not hesitate to recommend their services. At this point, we can't imagine using anyone else for our remodeling projects."
"Cherilyn Milton and Christi Clayton are a phenomenal team with whom I enjoyed working. From design to completion, the experience was professional, timely and the result exceeded my expectations. I looked forward to seeing them and their team every morning of my project. They took unusable space in a 106 year old home and created two beautiful closets. I am looking forward to my next opportunity to work with them again!"
"I have worked with Projects on two separate jobs over the past year. I can’t say enough about how professional, courteous, and skillful they are. From the inception of the project to the finishing touches, the attention given to my projects was top of the line. I know they were busy on many jobs that were larger than mine, yet they always made me feel as if I was their most important client. They promptly answered every email, phone call, oversaw every detail, stepped in with help whenever needed and were here on the job every day. My house is more beautiful and valuable thanks to the 5-star labor that went into my projects. I have been a homeowner for many years and have experience with some of the best contractors Santa Barbara has to offer. Working with Projects was the most enjoyable building experience I have ever had. I look forward to my next project knowing they will be there to make sure everything goes smoothly and gets done on time and in a quality fashion. They have earned my trust and respect for the excellent work they perform.”
"I couldn’t have been more pleased! Projects is perfect to work with."
"To Projects - Thank you for your excellent project management. I am very happy with the results and really appreciate your positive enthusiasm and professionalism. We are undoubtedly going to enjoy this new warm and cozy space for a long time. I hope you have a great holiday season and look forward to seeing you in the future. Best wishes!"
"Smart, honest, savvy—working with Christi and Cherilyn is a joy! How comfortable I feel having Christi and Cherilyn taking care of our projects—I trust them to do it right, simply and easily and with fabulous results. I have trust and confidence in Christi and Cherilyn to make everything work smoothly and easily and end beautifully."
"I didn't know where to start with my kitchen remodel - so it was a lucky day for me when I found Projects. Projects made my ideas become reality and I am so happy with the kitchen. Christi, Cherilyn and their team are so efficient! Started early and finished early. It was a great Christmas present to myself! I would definitely use Projects again and have already recommended them to friends. Thank you!"
"Thank you to Projects for their amazing work on my house! Christi Clayton and Cherilyn Milton were easy and fun to work with. I felt very comfortable discussing my ideas and their knowledge and experience helped me with my decisions. Their daily attentiveness to detail, responding to my questions and needs, and the progress of my many small projects were great. Project Superintendent David Sandoval’s skilled work and responsible attention made the various activities go smoothly. Projects’ great rapport with the various work trades on my job was evident. All work was completed on schedule and this was a great experience with a beautiful outcome. I certainly recommend Projects for a job well done!"
"If you need to go without a kitchen for a month, these are the folks who will make it worthwhile. Quality work, a smile and on-time delivery."
—RICHARD & CAROL HOFFER
"Projects was able to take a small cottage kitchen and turn it into a contemporary work of art with clean lines and cool surfaces. Christi, Cherilyn, and crew embraced our vision and brought it to reality. Our kitchen is spectacular! Thank you Projects."
—KEITH & LORRAINE REICHEL
"Projects delivers excellence! The Projects team is professional, knowledgeable, fun, and well-organized. They always made us feel like our project was special, never losing patience with our questions and helping us navigate the entire remodel process to an outcome we are thrilled with! We especially appreciated Projects' help defining a project plan that fit our budget and their huge effort to complete the work in a condensed timeline. This team also brings lots of experience and insights, and attention to detail, that make the actual construction and remodel process almost pain-free. We are so happy with our new living room, closet, and floors - big thanks and an unreserved recommendation for Projects!"
—BILL RADFORD & KIM COALSON
"After the completion of our two beautiful bathrooms, we can not say enough positive things about the Projects team. There were challenges along the way — new materials to learn about, new building codes to address — but we always knew Christi and her vendors would make everything work. Liz, the designer, came up with inventive solutions to make our small master bathroom live very large. We feel pampered every day. The guest bath added some much needed storage to the house, and we even have a few empty shelves! We miss our daily visits—Projects is hands on and kept us in the information loop every day. We would not hesitate to call on the same team in the future. Thanks Christi, Cherilyn and Liz!"
—PEGGY & KEN SMITH
"A couple of years ago my wife had Projects install a wine refrigerator in our home as a birthday surprise for me. All the work was done while we were away for a long weekend; it was a beautiful installation and I never suspected a thing. So the first call I made after signing the lease on my new office space was to Cherilyn and Christi at Projects. The team of professionals they put together could not have been better, they did outstanding work and were a pleasure to be around. All the work was completed while we continued to operate the business with very little disruption. The end result, a beautiful environment that I look forward to working in each morning."
"Ten minutes into our first meeting, I knew Cherilyn was who I wanted to work with. She put us at ease immediately and radiated an unmistakable confidence in her knowledge. From the first day of the project to the last, we were met with pure professionalism. If I ever saw something I didn’t like or understand, Cherilyn was always available to answer my questions and eliminate my worries. They accommodated our daily schedule, came in on budget, and ended up finishing 1 ½ weeks early. Now, whenever someone comes over and sees our bathroom, the first word out of their mouth is "Wow." I highly recommend the Projects team. They are absolutely great!"
—PAT & JOHN PACIANO
"Wow! In 4 weeks, a project requiring electricians, carpenters, plumbers, tile and stone cutters, painters and other tradesmen was completed. Every aspect of the project was well coordinated and supervised. Our concerns were met and acted upon. Everyone was enthusiastic, friendly and easy to work with. The experience was like watching a well-orchestrated symphony. And the final result: music. Thank you, Projects!"
—DALE & PIERINA LOWDERMILK
"Thank you for making the renovation of my guest bedroom, bathroom, hall, and office so stress free. Every person who came into the house to do their specialty was courteous and efficient in the extreme. Best of all, the time, schedule and cost estimates were well within the ballpark range as presented before we agreed to work together. Calm is the operative word here. No stress, no strain; just supportive and knowledgeable people doing what they do best. And they cleaned up after themselves! Most of all, I was supported, guided, and cheered by the knowledge that experts were not only on duty, but on my side."
"We are 100% complete, and 200% satisfied! I cannot tell you how great our experience was with Cherilyn, Elizabeth (project interior designer), Sean, Christi, the contractors and the staff at Projects – we always felt well-informed, involved and very satisfied with the high-quality results. You certainly went over & above all our expectations and we are so pleased with the results! I have recommended Projects to everyone I come across. Thank you again for the great experience, and I’ll see you when we get around to the kitchen!"
"My remodel experience with Projects was wonderful! From start to finish, the communication and follow-up on details was so well done that I left every weekly meeting seeing progress toward my finished addition. When old house issues had to be addressed, the coordination between my architect, engineer, designer, landscaper, and any subcontractors involved was amazing. I so appreciate the attention to detail everyone showed to keep my 1920’s cottage feeling like the addition belonged all the time!"
"We just came down from the cottage after enjoying a glass of wine toasting you and everyone that was involved in making this adventure a pleasant one...well done Cherilyn...we love what you did."
—MAUREEN & ED
"Everything has been done and looks great! Thanks again for your professionalism, thoroughness, and attitude. You really have been great to work with."
"Words that come to mind when I first think of Projects: incredibly professional, passion for perfection, absolutely dependable, superbly organized, totally accountable, over-the-top attention to detail, first class workmanship and remarkable service from the top down. It’s such a treat working with professionals who are passionate about their work. I highly recommend the Projects team. They are as good as any in the business and certainly best of breed in Santa Barbara. I’m proud of what we accomplished and more importantly honored to call them friends."
"Fun. It’s not a word usually uttered in the same sentence as remodel. Nor is enjoyable, smooth or on time — and especially not within budget. Unless, of course, you’re working with Cherilyn Milton. Cherilyn and her crack team of professionals at Projects were a joy to work with, from the first phone query to the final goodbye wave. We were actually sorry to see them go! Would we hire Projects again? You bet. Our remodeling job was enjoyable. The process went smoothly. The work was finished on time and within our budget. And, we even had fun."
