We found Henhouse to be very professional, and enjoyed working with them. We absolutely love our custom distressed pantry. It could not be more functional or beautiful!

We first encountered Sappho several years ago in her retail store. When it was time to renovate our new townhouse, Sappho looked at what we were starting with, listened to what we were trying to do and then proceeded to add several new ideas to the mix that turned out to be keys to the project’s great end result.
Her design ideas were very appealing to us, and her ability to get things done was extraordinary. Clear communication of the project plan and timeline, good relationships with great tradespeople, and a willingness to use her leverage occasionally when it was needed.
We wound up with a new home that is more than what we had hoped for. We have done a couple of renovations in our past, but nothing was ever done so well, was so pleasant to be engaged in and nothing has ever turned out so well. We can’t recommend Sappho highly enough.

Sappho looked after every detail, the efficiency and overall quality of work is superior. She collaborates with a team of hand-chosen talented professional tradespeople, who were a pleasure to have in the house, always arrived on time and work was completed within budget. She created a warm and inviting home, where our personal touches are evident in every room. She captured our essence.
We love every single thing that you’ve created in our home! I truly cannot thank you enough for transforming our home into something so special – it is so beautiful! I still look around and say to myself ‘I can’t believe that I live here!’
Thank you so, so, much for all of your hard work on our project. It was such a pleasure getting to know you and working with you. Your creativity and vision was truly inspiring and really brought colour and life to our new home. Thanks for your patience and kindness throughout the process. We hope to continue to work with you in the future.

It has been such a pleasure working with you. You have a clear vision of the end result and it has been so rewarding to see what has been in my head come to life. I know that the space you created will be the ‘heart’ of the home. Your professionalism and attention to detail did not go un-noticed, so thank you. Henhouse was definitely the right choice for us, well done! Best wishes for a fantastic holiday season and Merry Christmas!

Sappho came in to our home, walked through it with us, and helped us prioritize which rooms to target first. She gave us sketches, fabric samples, sourced furniture options and gave suggestions. It was such a fun experience to look at samples and sketches together.
I love how the house feels and looks now, and coming home to it feels so relaxing in a way it didn’t feel before.

Working with Sappho made for a straightforward process with the cabinet maker and other trades, so we avoided unnecessary delays. With her help and expertise, the new kitchen looks as though it’s always been that way, and everything in it has a home. In the end we absolutely got it right.
“Working with Sappho and the Henhouse team was an ultimate pleasure. From the starting stages of idea building to design to finished product we couldn’t have asked for a better team to engage in collaboration. During our kitchen renovation, Sappho devoted much time and attention to designing a living space that combined elements of both function and beauty. She was able to align her ideas with our own thoughts on what we wanted and offered honest feedback concerning what would work and what wouldn’t. Being first time renovators, Sappho provided us with the right level of guidance to ensure an even flow to implementation, and thanks to that assistance all things fell together beautifully.
Joe, the cabinet maker made dealing with an old house look easy. With cabinetry reflecting the finest degree of workmanship, unexpected complex problems were handled thoughtfully with an end product even better than the original design element. Finally, the small unexpected extras were a step beyond what was required and made us feel that we were in good hands throughout the project. We would highly recommend Sappho for any aspect of renovation, kitchen design, furniture design and more. Henhouse will surpass your expectations.”

We worked with the Henhouse team to renovate our dated family bathroom. Sappho and Joe were exceptional to work with. Their combined knowledge made the daunting task painless and fun. Sappho was a pleasure to collaborate with. Her keen eye and sensibility allowed us to maintain our budget but gave us the overall look that we wanted for the new space. Her spaces are beautiful and at the end of the day we trusted her input. Joe’s master craftsmanship transformed our ugly and dated bathroom into a beautiful space that we are proud to show off. We can’t wait to work with them on future projects.
“I knew when contemplating the kitchen renovation that I wanted to find someone who could take on the whole project. Sappho made me feel instantly at ease; she did all the work in coordinating the project and made thoughtful suggestions for all aspects involved. I thought I would be overwhelmed by the process and choices but Sappho made it all so easy in presenting the best options.”
“Thanks so much for all the help and the beautiful kitchen. I am thrilled with the results.”
I would highly recommend Sappho and her team at Henhouse. She expertly guided us through a bedroom and main floor renovation – taking care of everything from design to reveal. She quickly understood our high level vision for the spaces and executed on that vision down to the last detail – both spaces were more lovely and liveable than we could have imagined! It was a fun and collaborative process and we were thrilled with the results!
We hired the Henhouse team to design and build our kitchen in our new house. They were able to turn our ideas into a plan and make recommendations on improving our ideas. Building a house can be extremely stressful, and I can honestly say that Henhouse was one of the contractors that we did not have a single issue with. The work was PERFECT, on time, and exactly what we were looking for. They were a pleasure to work with.
