Never thought a basement could look NOT like a basement. Todd and his team did a terrific job finishing our basement with the high quality and top notch finishes. Easy, professional and timely. I've had three different contractors updating various parts of my house and Creating Spaces was the best experience.
2,000 square foot basement- bathroom, wet bar, media room, bedroom plus new HVAC unit, hot water heaters.
Area Atlanta, GA
Cost $15,000 - $19,999

Todd and his crew were amazing to work with. I would work with them again and recommend to anyone! My basement looks like part of my house--even better! This has been the best experience I have ever had with a contractor.

Todd and his crew were absolutely amazing! Every detail came out perfectly and the experience couldn't have been better. From the estimated time frame to the cost, everything was spot on. They customized everything to meet our needs and even when my husband and I changed our minds (which was frequently) they adapted and exceeded our expectations. The crew was very nice and courteous. I highly recommend Creating Space to anyone looking to remodel their basement!!

Todd and his team contracted to finish our basement. His bid was easy to understand and clear on what was and was not included. His team of craftsmen always showed up when expected and were easy and pleasant to deal with. His team was first rate in their quality of work. Todd was always reachable when we had questions, even when he was out of town. Todd has a great sense about him relative to being able to view an unfinished space and to see what can be done. He made several suggestions on things we could do that in the end made a significant difference in how the space looks. The job was finished on schedule and within budget. It looks great! We made a great decision in having Creating Spaces finish our basement! We highly recommend Creating Spaces!! David & Arleen

Todd and his crew finished a full 1400 sq ft basement that included custom cabinetry, bar and a full bathroom. First I must comment on the fact that Todd is honest and fair. Other contractors reviewed and ultimately overpromised best uses of the space but Todd was honest about what could be done. He did everything we asked and more. Here are the basics. On schedule? - finished the exact week scheduled Communication was good? - answered all my calls and text within hours if not right away Knowledge? - was honest in giving his advice Crew prompt? - All were on time and ready to go Budget conscious? - worked within our budget with NO surprises Clean and not disturbing to family and neighborhood - Most neighbors didn't realize construction was being done A bit of advice. Have a vision prior to entering into such a large project. Entering this journey we were about 70% sure of what we wanted and Todd's experience and "know how" to brought us to completion. This is important because little things always come up (a light here, a socket here, speaker on this wall) and Todd was always accommodating without a fuss but we always had the big picture in mind. In the end, we were within $500 of the quoted price which is unheard of as we are VERY happy with the space. I would HIGHLY recommend Creating Space for all your basement needs.

We would highly recommend Todd and Creating Space. We interviewed 3 contractors and Todd was the only one to give us exactly what we had envisioned within our budget. We were even able to upgrade flooring options and add a few items as the process moved along. His subcontractors showed up on time and were always professional. We are so happy with our basement and can't wait to show it off!

We have worked with Todd and Creating Space on two different projects - the latest being a kitchen remodel. And, we couldn't be happier! Todd was great at helping us design the overall look and feel of the kitchen, and finding the right materials to bring it all to life - all white sticking to a budget and meeting a tight deadline.

Our search for a contractor to finish our 1500 sq ft basement was extensive. We narrowed the choice to three of the highest-rated companies based on Kudzu and other recommendations. I requested estimates, exchanged emails to assess responsiveness and professionalism, and picked Todd at Creating Space, Inc.. He was not the least expensive, nor was he the most expensive, but he was the only contractor to include a scaled drawing with his estimate to help us visualize the project. He listened to us, captured our ideas, offered options, and worked with us every step of the way to make our dream basement real. I was extremely impressed with his attention to detail, his responsiveness to our many questions, and the very high standards of his work. Equally important, every one of his subcontractors were first class, professional and polite. As with any project, questions and issues arise. When they did, Todd helped us work through them to make sure our expectations were met. I am blown away by the quality of the workmanship. It's the best basement I have ever seen, including a massive 13' rustic elder bar, a sound-insulated music room with custom alder wood cabinets, a heated-tile sewing room, a game room, a kids room, a full bathroom, and a great storage room with "hurricane-proof" shelving. Todd's phased payment process ensured our satisfaction each step of the way. Creating Space is a world-class company and Todd is the best in the business! Highly recommended!!!

Creating Space is just AWESOME! I spent 7 months interviewing a dozen general contractors. I believed that I chose the best when Gabe started the job and now that it's complete, we couldn't be happier! I thought I was a meticulous person - but it was really Gabe and all of his contractors. They have years and years of experience and hundreds of basements completed together and it shows in our basement. The project wasn't easy to start with as we required a sunroom and workshop beneath that was new square-footage plus an entire basement with kitchen, game room, home theater, bedroom, etc. Gabe made our vision become reality and it is absolutely gorgeous! We are the envy of our neighbors and now they won't stop coming over - which is a good thing when you have kids. When Gabe uses a sub-contractor (electrical, plumbing, etc.) they are all top notch professionals and extremely considerate - we would trust every single one of them with our own children. Each of them contributed with ideas that made the space work better and saved us money as well. They set VERY high expectations and exceed all of them. On time, in budget and a great experience overall - thanks to Gabe and all of his guys! The only CON that I can think of is that all the areas of our house that they didn't touch isn't as nice as the basement or sunroom. Arg, more work for me (or Gabe again) I suppose!

Todd was easy to work with and his crews were great! They were meticulous, respectful and thorough in their work. Todd's pricing was fair and his flexibility working with me, my designer and our A/V people was wonderful. I highly recommend Todd and his team. Our project has been complete for several months and we do not have a single complaint. We have received so many compliments on Creating Spaces work and could not be happier with our choice to use them.

Todd beat all other estimates, and did a great job. He was easy to work with and very responsive. He made a number of suggestions to the project and understands how to work within a budget. All his contractors were reliable, courteous and professional.

We hired Creating Space for our basement earlier this summer. Gabe was great to work with. He is knowledgeable and flexible and helped us stay within budget. His workmen are professional and courteous. They take pride in their workmanship and it shows in the finished project. Gabe was easy to contact during the project and even afterwards. We had a few things come up a few weeks after the basement was completed. We sent him an email and he called later that evening. His workers were there the next day. Now that's service! We love our new basement. It's our favorite part of our home now. We would definitely hire them again.

Creating Space did a great job on my basement renovation from start to finish, I have no complaints. My project was about 750 sq. ft. (bedroom, bathroom, family room/kitchenette) and the plumbing included cutting concrete and installing a below ground ejector pot. Gabe has a "can-do" attitude and wants to please the customer -- we made a few change-orders along the way and feel we were treated fairly. There were also a couple of times where we didn't like the way something turned out but he corrected it to our satisfaction without a hassle. Gabe always answered the phone, I never once had to leave him a message and wait for him to call me back. He also answered every email and text message in a timely manner. The sub-contractors were true professionals as well; they spoke English and had good attitudes and were happy to answer any questions on the job. I would certainly recommend Creating Space and would not hesitate to use them again in the future!
