We spent several weeks interviewing contractors. We found Creating Space on Kudzu and were blown away with the reviews. Once we interviewed Todd we knew we had finally found our contractor. We not... only were impressed with Todd, but we also loved his entire crew. We felt very comfortable having them in our home and around our family. Todd was quick to respond to my never ending questions via text or phone call or in person. His response time was always that same day. The final bill was the exact same as the original quote. There were no hidden fees or upcharges. Our basement was completed a few months ago and everyone who has stopped by to see it has been blown away by the workmanship. We would highly recommend Creating Space.VIEW MORE »VIEW LESS »
We had talked to several contractors about getting our basement finished. We decided to go with Todd. He was very knowledgeable and had a lot of experience, and his quote was actually the most... reasonable. We're very happy with our decision. Our basement looks great! Both Todd and Gabe were good about keeping us in the loop during the entire process, as well as addressing any concerns that we had about things. We would definitely recommend!

The guys at Creating Space are very friendly and knowledgable about designing all types of basements. They can tell you exactly what you are working with in terms of structure and provide multiple options around creating a finished product that works with your home. The most impressive thing was flexibility as I had some things come up during the project that forced us off the standard schedule. They were very accomodating, we completed the project in a way that worked best for me and I have a finished basement that I am very happy with.
Todd had me hooked on the first call, then confirmed my decision by being prompt and professional during the bid process. Todd listened, provided pictures of prior work and delivered a detailed quote. The best news is that he delivered to that quote on the project. Todd's team of subcontractors were also first class. It showed that they worked together often. Any items that needed addressed were done so promptly without debate. Our family is thrilled with Todd's work and using the basement even more than expected. I still remember Todd's quote from the bid process - "my job is to not have this look like a basement when I'm finished". He did just that. If you are considering finishing a basement, you should make Creating Space part of that process.
When selecting the right contractor, I focused on quality, convenience, professionalism, and affordability. The team at Creating Space stood out from among the rest in those areas. They took my dark, cramped, and barely usable basement and transformed it into a beautiful, spacious, and modern master suite. A major selling point to my house for the future. I was also pleased that they were able to stay within my limited budget, work around my nonstop travel schedule, and deliver a design that matched the existing style of my home. I would hightly recommend Creating Space to anyone looking to add value to their home through an affordable remodel project.
I can't say enough nice things about Todd, his professionalism, and the quality of work done by Creating Space. Todd finished a basement for my family back in April of this year (2011), and simply put, he exceeded our every expectation (and I feel we had high expectations). First, Todd worked with us upfront to define a clear estimate and define all criteria for the job. When we had concerns with some of the final pricing, he worked with us to come up with alternatives that allowed us to stay within our budget. Second, the entire project was kept on track, and Todd was always available for any questions we had (and returned prompt responses). Third, the quality of work was fantastic. All of the subs Todd used were extremely nice and knowledgeable. It was very comforting for us to know that he consistently uses the same subs for every job. Finally, I can't say enough about Todd's dedication to the project. He ensured the job was done on time and was readily available for questions/concerns after the project was completed. I would recommend Creating Space (and Todd) to anyone who wanted a top notch basement!
The owner (younger) was a great guy to work with.. he knew when we started that we were anal customers and we lived up to that and he took it all in stride... The project took a tad longer than we expected but he was meticulous.. his crews were professional and overall, he was just a really nice, patient and understanding individual. In fact, he actually helped us install a few tv mounts at no cost. We have already recommended him to our friends..
Todd and his team did a phenomenal job from start to finish in the remodel of our basement. Our former 20+ year old, 80’s style basement (drop ceiling and wood paneling) is now a beautiful open modern living area. Todd had great ideas on the movement of walls and design of the space. They fully demolished the old space, re-routed and replaced utility lines creating a trey ceiling, moved the electrical box, moved a load bearing wall, installed an LVL beam, remodeled the bathroom, hung sheetrock, laid wood flooring, installed lighting and beautifully finished the space. The crowning touch was the amazing built-in cabinets and custom designed wet bar. The sub-contractors were all very professional and friendly. There was virtually no disruption to the rest of the house and our day to day activities. The quality in every area was excellent. Todd was responsive and available for all questions and issues that arose. We would absolutely recommend Creating Space to anyone wanting to remodel their home.
We bought our new house three years ago. After screening of several vendors. We selected Todd to finish our basement. He provided the best combination of quality, services and price. From beginning to end, he and his team were extremely professional and responsive. They opened up the stairwell, updated the electrical panel, framed the rooms, insulate, and hung drywall, installed floors and lighting. Each and every step, he provided a schedule and kept us in the loop on what is going on and what is next. His team always completes the work on time, always clean up after each day, and always willing to come back and take care of minor corrections, until we are completely satisfied with everything. I am very impressed by their workmanship. Todd also worked within our budget and didn’t exceed the quote for the agreed upon work. Every friend and colleague who visited us is impressed by the quality, service and price combination. There is no one can beat Todd if you are looking for high quality craftsmanship with reasonable price. I would most definitely use creating space again if I even have another need.
I have been remiss in not posting a review sooner - Creating Space did such a good job creating our space that I have been too busy enjoying it. We started with a finished basement, but it was very closed off with a long, cave-like hallway, bad carpet and white walls. Todd & Gabe came in and transformed our space into a wonderful open area by taking out 4 walls. They helped us create spaces for a TV/video game area, kitchenette, seating area and finished a previously unfinished area to create an exercise room. Of all the estimates I got, they were the only ones who came up with a new idea how to use an unusual nook in the exercise room and turn it into a storage closet. Though Gabe did much of the work himself, including turning our stairs into finished wood and installing the kitchen cabinets, all of the sub-contractors were excellent with top-quality work. When anything was questioned, Gabe responded immediately and professionally. The payment plan they presented was logical, spread out the payments according to the work being done at that time and made me feel comfortable that everything was going to get done in a timely fashion. No worries about paying too much up front. Our basement is now amazing, usable space. We are so happy with the work Creating Space did and would recommend the company to anyone with a remodel or finishing project in mind.
Todd DiFiore and his team at Creating Space did a great job on building our basement! Todd gave us a design that was really workable after viewing our empty basement and we now have some great additional usable space. The project came in on time and at the budget quoted. We will definitely call on Creating Space for our next basement!
We finished our second renovation with Todd last fall. He completed a major basement build out. We previously had our kitchen and a small bath and laundry room renovated by Todd and his crew of skilled sub contractors. You can see our comments dated 11/22/10 about that job earlier on this site. I can say we have really enjoyed our new kitchen. It is still a joy to use and we still get many compliments on it. In some ways though the basement renovation was an even more difficult project for Todd to work on. Our home is older and had an unusual basement configuration and we did not have an architectural plan for Todd to build from. This turned out well since Todd’s plan was great. He had ideas we never thought of. The plan in turn became a first class finished project. Our basement is now referred to as the “terrace level”. Shortly after the job was finished the holidays came and with the holidays a lot of guests. I don’t know how we would have handled them all without the new terrace level. Once again I want to compliment the subs who for the most part were the same team that built out our kitchen. The basment required major HVAC installation work and that sub contractor did a fine job as well. So after two extensive renovation projects we still give our heartiest recommendation for Todd and his crew.
We are so pleased with the job that Todd did finishing our basement. He had ideas that we never thought of, which made great use of the space we have. Todd is professional. Add ons were in the price quote so there were no surprises. The workmanship is high quality. He worked within the time line he told us. We definitely recommend Creating Space and will certainly use them again in the future if we have any other projects. The Chandlers
Creating Space did a fantastic job finishing our basement. My wife and I were so pleased that we have made several referrals to friends since completion of the project. Instead of writing the entire story of our basement project I'm just going to provide a bulleted list of why we liked Todd and his team. * honest - Their bid was very accurate and I felt very comfortable throughout the project despite my ignorance of construction. * flexible - I lost my job in the middle of the project. Todd was understanding and paused until I could re-start the project. * reliable - I cannot emphasize how important this is. Contractors are legendary for being unreliable but Creating Space was VERY reliable. * workmanship - They didn't cut corners and when I pointed out issues they were quickly resolved. * transparent - Very good at providing options and explaining the costs and benefits of each without being pushy. He even invited me to visit two basement projects in progress so that I could see his work before signing the contract. As with all projects, the plans changed as we decided to upgrade certain elements (trey ceilings, crown moldings, wetbar, tile design) and scratch others (workout room remained unfinished). We even relocated the bathroom at the last minute! Todd did a great job of helping us to minimize the price impact by suggesting cost-effective options along the way. If I ever finish another basement I will definitely use Creating Space again.
We were very pleased with our basement remodel. Todd is very professional, did what he said he would do, and did a great job of communicating with us throughout the process. The quality of work was superb and we got a great value for the money spent. One thing I especially appreciated was that Todd did not skimp on our allowances and his pricing on the invariable add-ons was reasonable. This sets him apart from any other contracting business we have worked with. We have already referred two friends to Creating Space- the best sign of a satisfied customer!
Todd and Gabe did a terrific job in remodeling our basement. They always showed up on time, and finished on time. The work was exactly what my wife and I were looking for. The basement came out great. From the removal of walls to the installation of the bathroom, HVAC, and bar area, we were very happy with the results and we would highly recommend Todd and Gabe.
I just moved into Georgia and didn't know anyone at all. Creating spaces was given to me by my daughter who had worked with them on many other homes and everything she said about them was true. You will be more than satisfied when you hire Creating spaces to do your small or large job. They are so easy to work with and friendly and the craftmanship is far above anything I expected.

Creating Space custom designed our finished basement (several rooms, walk in closet, custom tile bath) to maintain consistency with rest of house AND within our budget. Great service, communication, managed all permitting and we are very satisfied with the finished product. Will use for future projects and highly recommend.
