“Joe is a master communicator. He presented in writing the what, when, how and cost of each aspect of our project. He responded immediately to any questions we raised. He wove together the many schedules of contractors and his own team beautifully.
The quality of work was top notch. All the workers from the excavation crews to finish carpenters and painters were pleasant and polite. Clearly Joe treats them with respect and communicated expectations clearly.”
“Opus fosters a culture of collaboration, craftsmanship, integrity, curiosity, and passion. Rooted in the best practices of generations of craftspeople but ever searching for innovations in materials and methods to improve their product – your home. I relish every opportunity I get to join them in the work we both love – building your dreams. Love you guys!”
“Joe first worked on a project for me in 2004, a significant renovation of a large house in West Cambridge. And I just kept coming back — three follow-on projects, and then a renovation of the apartment to which I have downsized now that my children are grown. Joe stands behind his work and is unfailingly honest and transparent. He knows every trade, can diagnose every issue, understands historic buildings, and is a true artist and craftsman. Joe dedicates his heart, mind, and soul to every aspect of a project to create spaces that are beautiful and distinctive.”
“For over 20 years, Joe DiLazzaro’s heart, energy, expertise and friendship have enhanced our family’s daily life.
After transforming our cute little house into the envy of the neighborhood, Joe and his team have tackled numerous projects to expand, maintain and improve our home over the years. Each experience has been a joyful adventure.”
“Joe thrives on creating the very best and unique space for each of his clients. I often say that a little part of Joe is in every nail and plank in our home. We look forward to continued adventures with him and the Opus gang!”
