We asked Keith Allen to do the impossible: preserve the sentimental value of a forty-year-old, 1,200 square foot farmhouse, while building a modern 4,500 square foot home around it. It was nearly mission impossible.
First came detailed planning: three equal master bedrooms, a modern kitchen with 10-foot ceilings, upstairs bedroom lofts for children, all while preserving the original cedar-lined great room.
Next came significant engineering: supporting beams for walls that were far from square. Then the management of a series of subcontractors as the modern home magically took shape.
The result: a beautiful modern home fully reminiscent of the great family and party time that had happened over the years. We can only marvel at the vision, the attention to detail, and the character that Keith brings to his projects. Mission accomplished!!
Karen and I were very apprehensive in taking on a home renovation from the word go. We had never done a major renovation, so we had no idea what to expect. Working with you had to be one of the most pleasurable experiences we could have asked for. You are a man of your word, you provide wonderful insight and hire some of the best trades in the business. Your industry knowledge and design vision helped us see our vision come true.
What we appreciated the most was your responsiveness and the open lines of communication. We had heard so many horror stories about remodels by other contractors Keith and we did not experience any of those issues with you.
If someone is looking for a hardworking, idea-driven, open-minded contractor with great ideas, Keith Allen is the man for the job.
Thank you for making our home a showplace!
We have had the good fortune of having Keith Allen as our contractor for our last two renovations. The first one was a major renovation, for which we relocated to a rental for the duration. It included a total kitchen, laundry room, powder room, dining room, den, and touched almost all of the rooms in the house, aside from the master suite.
Two years later, Keith renovated our master bedroom, bathroom and closet. Throughout the process, Keith led us through selections and choices with patience and professionalism. He always went the extra mile to ensure our satisfaction. We remain extremely satisfied with every portion of both projects, and are very thankful to Keith for his guidance and thoughtfulness about both details and the big picture. We highly recommend him!
Keith is extremely knowledgeable, easy to work with, and guided us through every step of our home renovation project. He delivered a project that came in on time and on budget. It was a pleasure to work with Keith and we would highly recommend him.
We have completed two renovations with Keith Allen – one large and one small- and we had the most positive experience working with him. Keith is honest, dependable, punctual, and an expert in all areas of home remodeling.
He always steered us in the right direction as we made our decisions. He has a wonderful eye for color and design and knew where to look for all the best appliances, countertops, tile, etc. Plus everyone all over the Memphis area knows and respects Keith. If you are looking for a quality builder we would highly recommend Keith Allen!
Several years ago we chose Keith Allen to help us perform a complete renovation of our kitchen. The scope of the project would need his input, availability and expertise from the beginning of the planning process to the completion of construction, and he was there throughout. We were able to complete the design of the space, select the best quality products and benefit from the professionalism of all subcontractors with his guidance.
We were extremely pleased with the beautiful result. Some years later we asked Keith to help us with a larger project, a total renovation of a condominium overlooking the Mississippi River. Once again, the result is a tribute to the quality of his work and has been a joy for our family.
Thank you Keith for providing us with such beautiful spaces.
Keith has built a custom home for us and has done two renovations. He has an exceptional eye for detail and makes sure every component of the project is done correctly.
Over ten years ago Keith Allen built a wonderful extension to our home and what was most remarkable was his attention to detail and his determination that we would have things exactly the way we wanted them. Subsequently he built a balcony onto our downtown apartment and he showed exactly the same qualities.
Now he is my first call whenever there is an emergency to be taken care of. This is because he is totally reliable and brilliant at coordinating workers from different companies. In short, I know that when I call Keith Allen I can stop worrying and that everything will be taken care of efficiently and to my satisfaction.
“We are very pleased to recommend Keith Allen to you for any home construction project. About fifteen years ago, we had a kitchen and bathroom added to our home by another contractor and we were very disappointed in the quality of work. When we decided to renovate, we were anxious to be sure that someone much more competent would do the current remodeling of our home.
After seeing a project completed by Mr. Allen, we contracted with him to build a garage for us. We were very pleased with the excellent quality of his work inside and outside. We then spoke to Keith about remodeling our kitchen and bathroom. We are very happy with the results. His workmen corrected both structural and electrical errors left by the previous contractor. Mr. Allen encourages the use of very good quality materials, but he will work within one’s budget and give the customer a selection from which to choose… Overall we feel Keith is an excellent contractor, whose work is extremely well done, and whose words are to be trusted. Our experience leads us to believe in his honesty and integrity. We now have a beautiful kitchen and bathroom.”
“You have been an absolute joy to work with and a true blessing to us for the way you communicate and the way you get things done. We really appreciate all your hard work and can’t wait to see the final product!”
“Keith Allen’s workmanship was excellent and his supervision was very professional. In addition, he is extremely honest and all the subcontractors he selected were polite and provided quality work. Keith’s knowledge and experience in residential construction was very helpful in the many design changes made during our project. Without hesitation, I highly recommend Keith Allen.”
“Thank you for the outstanding job you did on our kitchen. We especially appreciate your expertise, attention to detail, and your professionalism. We love our kitchen!” I can honestly say it was a pleasure working with you. Timing for all the subcontractors was coordinated to perfection. Thank you again! If we have any other projects that come up we will definitely call you. Our experience was a delight. I don’t know any of my friends that have had major construction jobs that can say the same.”
“Keith, your professionalism and attention to detail are outweighed only by your honesty. I would not have anyone else build a house for me.”
