We love our new space and highly recommend Raven Homes!

We hired Raven Homes to finish our basement and were very pleased with the results as well as the process. We made changes to the plans along the way and John accommodated our updates and kept the project on schedule. The basement includes custom cabinetry and tile work along with a full bath. We love our new space and recommend Raven Homes for your building and renovating needs.

You can’t find a better contractor in Central Massachusetts than John Mshooshian at Raven Homes!

We have lived in our home for 18 years and have hired several contractors in that time — some inept and some downright shady. Our experience with John was unparalleled. He came when promised, his crew was top notch and cleaned up every night and we had daily updates regarding project status. Most importantly, John listened to what we wanted, explained the pros and cons of various ideas and helped us through each step of the planning. The end result is not just a fabulous kitchen, but with other simple updates — it’s like we have a whole new house!

Hands down, this is the smoothest project we have ever undertaken.

My wife and I have had several home improvement projects done over the years. Recently we had our basement finished by John Mshooshian of Raven Homes. Hands down, this is the smoothest project we have ever undertaken. John’s estimate was very competitive and there were no hidden costs. Not only was John’s estimate competitive, he stayed within the budget and looked for ways to save money on the project. As far as workmanship goes, our basement looks fantastic. It is obvious that John did not cut any corners. I have recommended Raven Homes to several friends and they have had similar experiences.

The workmanship of all the work was excellent!

We retained Raven Homes to complete an addition to our home in the Fall of 2007 which included the addition of approx. 850 sq ft., specifically increasing our kitchen by > 50%, adding a mudroom, enlarging a bedroom, adding a new bathroom, extending our dining room by 4 ft. and renovating a 2nd bathroom.

We had been planning a major addition to our home for some time and once we had finished up with our architect, we put the job out to bid to 3 contractors. Upon review of the 3 proposals, we found Raven Home’s bid to be competitive and by far the most detailed of what was and was not included, which we appreciated since this was our first venture in a project of this scope. Once we contracted with Raven and work had commenced, we found them to be professional in all facets of the project. Due to the scope of the project, there were a multitude of design decisions that needed to be made and Raven Homes gave us ample notice of what decision was needed and when. Due to their experience in the industry, we often asked for their advice on design decisions and they were always happy to provide it, which we appreciated.

The Raven employees and their subcontractors were respectful of limiting their impact on our day-to-day life during the construction - which was no easy feat because the renovations involving the kitchen and all the bathrooms. At the completion of each work day, the work areas were tidied up and left in a safe manner, which was important to us as we have younger children. The workmanship of all the work was excellent.

As would be expected with a renovation of an older home, we ran into a few unexpected conditions requiring modifications to the original scope. During each of these instances, Raven communicated to us the issues involved and where applicable, offered multiple options from which we could make our decision. Raven ensured that these unexpected changes did not significantly impact the overall project timetable.

John was amazing to work with!

I used Raven Homes to bring my dingy, unfinished basement to a very useful, beautiful living space. John was amazing to work with. He was extremely professional while being respectful in my home. The people John works with are all great. I feel as if I not only gained many square feet in my home but a trusted plumber and electrician too! I have recommended Raven Homes to family and friends as well. There is no doubt that I will use Raven Homes for my next renovation project.
