How we work



Once we define your goals and estimated budget in a Design Agreement, our design manager acts as your guide, proposing a layout and helping you select the perfect finishes from flooring to lighting and everything in between


Detailed Proposal

We create a detailed proposal based on the design, so you know exactly what you’re getting for your money. We present not only visible elements like cabinets but also the underlying bones like electrical, plumbing and HVAC



Using our detailed proposal as a guide, your dedicated project manager keeps you updated on how your remodel is progressing and keeps the team on track, making sure we deliver your project on and on budget

I had a dream for the last few years of having a bar in my basement...Once I greenlighted the project, Handy Mensch took over and assigned a project manager, Sean to oversee the construction. They built the bar from scratch in our basement and used an incredible carpenter along with tile and counter artisans. Sean was always available and there most of the days which gave me a great conduit for questions and concerns. The bar came out better than I could have imagined and became not only a great entertainment hangout but also an oasis during the pandemic as I could hang out at my bar, pouring a draft of a great beer and enjoying life. Thanks Handy Mensch for bringing my bar to life!

HandyMensch remodeled our bathroom and basement and did a fantastic job. The work they did exceeded all our expectations - they clearly have a focus on quality and responsiveness. Everybody on the team was a pleasure to work with - professional, friendly and very knowledgeable. In fact, we asked HandyMensch to take over some other work we had previously contracted to another company because it was obvious in comparison that the HandyMensch team had a better understanding and ability to get it done. The construction process was very smooth. The quality of work and materials were of high quality. The HandyMensch team were extraordinarily clean and tried to be as unobtrusive as possible (I worked from home the entire time and found it to be no problem). Lenny promptly responded to any questions we had. Lenny, Sean, and Dan were absolutely great. We would very strongly recommend HandyMensch and would definitely use them again for future renovations.
