hey knew they had their work cut out for them
when Aaron and Jennifer Ellenbogen fell more in
love with the 1-acre backyard than the 1963 tri-level
that came with it.
"We bought the house for the land," says Jennifer. Then
they called Gittleman.
The kitchen was first on their to-do list but dropped quickly
to second when a flood forced a speedy reconditioning of
what is now an all-new playroom. "They came right over,
stripped the walls, the floors, took everything out" then
totally refinished everything, from floor to ceiling.
With one job done, the Ellenbogen's invited Gittleman to
move onto the kitchen to not only double its size but
embrace their fantastic view by installing a bank of
windows overlooking the land that first enticed them. All
new cabinetry, granite countertops, hardwood floors, a
cathedral ceiling and a center island make the renewed
heart of the home "the kitchen my husband has always
dreamed of, " says Jennifer, acknowledging the serious
cook in the family, Of course, she likes it, too.

Best yet, she noted, was the day-to-day compatibility of the Gittleman tradesmen who were on the job for nearly
5 months — except for a brief time out when Jennifer gave birth to Henry, now 6 months old.
"I felt so comfortable with them," she recalled. "They always let me know what they would be doing, if it might
wake my older son (Jacob, 21/2) from a nap." And, they always delivered what they promised, a job well done,
on time and within budget.
Gittleman will be back again soon, Jennifer added, the family room is next in the houseful of projects and that is
according to plan.
"We knew we were going to be redoing everything," she said.
Next time you know you've got a lot of projects...or maybe just a little one, rely on Gittleman to do what you
need, when you need it, in a manner you can live with.
JUST ASK THE ELLENBOGEN'S.
