Our experience with 8 Penny Nail was everything you hope for in a major remodeling project. Megan Beaver is an honest, experienced and skilled contractor. Her bid on our complete bath remodel was realistic and fair. The work her crew performed was top of the line and completed on schedule. At the end of every work day, the work site was left clean and orderly. That might seem like a small point, but we certainly appreciated it in our project. We truly enjoyed working with Megan — and now have an absolutely beautiful bathroom that incorporates many features that will allow us to remain in our home as we age.

We hired Eight Penny Nail in the fall of 2017 to build a little A-frame cabin in our back garden. She took time to understand the feel of our garden, patiently listened to the details of my vision, and poured over countless drawings and pictures with me. She was sensitive to my budget and always presented me with transparent choices in regards to cost. When work began, she and her crew were prompt, professional, courteous, and passionate. They clearly cared about the project and throughout the process kept me abreast of what was happening and gave me lots of input. The end result was even more wonderful than the initial vision and blends into our garden perfectly. Since the completion, Megan has been available for questions and has even loaned me a ladder to paint!

We engaged with 8 Penny contractors to replace a large window in our upstairs bedroom. I would recommend them without reservation. Megan and Aaron responded in a very timely way, provided a clear bid and scope of work, and it was well within the other bids. Then, upon approval, they handled all aspects of ordering, delivery, and installation. And kept to schedule and with excellent quality and communications all along the way.

8 Penny Nail is simply the best. Megan, the owner, is completely honest and has the kind of integrity that is a must for contractors. She will finish, and she will finish it right. And she's lots of fun! (She did our kitchen.)

Our goal was to transform a typical bar into a cozy Irish pub, and do it under a month. 8 Penny Nail was integral to making this happen. Megan and her team added wood to the existing bar, constructed a service counter, created shelves for the shop, crafted a semi-private seating area called a snug, and built tables and benches outside. They did all this balancing expert attention to detail with an easy-going communication style. We would definitely use their services again.

Megan's craftsmanship speaks for itself. I would and do recommend her to anyone I know who needs help working on their house.

Megan communicated promptly and updated us often. Attention to detail and care for our house were always obvious and greatly appreciated. She is organized, neat, and meticulous, all of which shows in her work.
