We contracted Nutmeg Building & Remodeling, LLC, for some remodeling work in our home in Old Lyme.  The scope of work included upgrading kitchen appliances and adding a double oven, which we did not previously have. Because our home was only four years old, it was critical that this work be done to match the current cabinetry in the kitchen as much as possible and use the existing granite. It was a challenge, but Nutmeg Building & Remodeling, LLC, helped us with design and layout and how to best utilize the space we had. We also upgraded two existing bathrooms to include a significant amount of new stone work, design and installation of new bathtubs, showers, and cabinetry.  The results are phenomenal. Without the help and of Nutmeg Building & Remodeling, LLC, we would have struggled with this remodel project. Their experience, expertise and quality craftsmanship enabled us to think outside the box and have custom remodeling done in a very short timeframe! We highly recommend Nutmeg Building & Remodeling, LLC, for any building needs.

We have worked with Denise on two home renovation projects.  We cannot say enough about the quality of the work, the accurate time and fair cost projections as well as the great attention to detail.  (A woman’s touch in contracting is often an added dimension).
We have dealt with five general contractors in the last four years.  Our experience with Nutmeg has been the best.

Denise was hired to rebuild the interior of a home belonging to of one of my clients after much of the acquired belongings were discarded, donated and organized. She had to deal with the deterioration of walls, ceilings and floors most of which were moldy. She and her team of workers were not only thorough and creative but also extremely kind and considerate to the homeowner. Denise is a hard worker, a professional and an inspiration.

About Us

Nutmeg Builders has skillfully completed large and small jobs over the past few years on our lovely home.  From porch railings to attic insulation to a full bathroom gut job, their work has been reliably competent with attention given to details.  Each job was completed in an efficient and timely manner.  The new bathroom is beautiful.  Totally reconfigured and looks larger and modern.  The pocket door was a perfect option offered by Denise.
    Denise is a listener whose goal is to exceed her clients’ expectations.  Her expertise includes creative alternatives and strategies that respect budget and time constraints.
    New to the upheaval of renovations, I have been and continue to be impressed with Denise’s hands on involvement and with the talent of the workers.

My husband and I have just come to the end of an addition/remodel project with Nutmeg Building & Remodeling. We started with a small ranch-style house, whose living and kitchen areas are very spacious, but whose bedrooms were small. We now have a spatially-balanced home: the new office, the expanded and reconfigured bedrooms as well as master bath, have become the home in which we plan on spending the rest of our lives.
    Denise is an enthusiastic and positive person who has surrounded herself with a very competent work "staff". While everyone is personable and pleasant to be around, each member has his own strengths, and her job was to match those specific strengths to each specific task. The result for us was a "new" home we are proud to show off. We had a vision which we were able to blend together with Denise and her crew's thoughts and ideas. Our dream has been realized and made better by the experience, knowledge, and creativity of everyone involved!

Sorry I missed you this morning…I’m enjoying my new bedroom soooo much I could not have envisioned the day the roof came off the garage that the end result would be so beautiful and relaxing.  Thank you for my “master bedroom.”  The jewel of the addition is my tub… I use it much more than I ever dreamed….loads of bubbles, candles and a long soak…then I’m renewed.
