Dutch Barn Timber Frame Renovation - New Paltz NY

Barn Restoration
  • - "Robert handled our barn project in a professional and thorough manner from the first time we met with him to design and estimate the work, all during the construction phase, right until the final clean-up of the site. He brought a design sensibility to the project that was unexpected and added real value. His group of dedicated sub-contractors were courteous, dependable and well-skilled. During the entire process, Robert was responsive to our concerns and questions, and always available to provide clarity when needed. Most important of all, we were extremely pleased with the quality of all of the work, and Robert delivered our project on time and on budget - a win-win for all."

Post & Beam Home Renovation - New Paltz NY

  • - "We first worked with Robert and his team when we wanted to break through a wall between our kitchen and dining room. It was important to us to maintain the design integrity of our 100 year old farm house and Robert understood that right off the bat. The wall was replaced with post and beams that to the untrained eye look as if they have been standing as long as the house has. Robert's attention to detail and his design ideas were invaluable to opening the space up and creating a natural flow between the two rooms. Six months later when we were ready to renovate the kitchen we knew Robert was the only contractor we wanted to work with. His team is comprised of crafts people who take great pride in their work and it shows in their work ethic and the beautiful end product."

Bathroom - Basement - Bedroom Renovation - Kingston NY

  • - "Our bathroom / guestroom renovation was daunting to us because our house was so old and the basement had structural issues. There was so much that needed to be addressed in such a short period of time before the baby came. We had little idea of what we really wanted nor did we understand the magnitude of what was entailed. Robert really took the reins and handled this project for us "soup to nuts."
  • We were skeptical about the extra money we spent on having Robert's structural engineer evaluate and draw up plans for re-supporting our basement but in the end we easily obtained our Certificate of Ocupancy from the town because the work had been done to code. The basement rennovation looks fantastic and went like clockwork.
  • Over all, we are very pleased with the value received. Robert's high level of professionalism, attention to detail and tremendous organizational skills made his company a pleasure to work with. His suggestions regarding recessed lighting and radiant floor heat in the bathroom were fabulous improvements. We trusted him and were are so glad we did. His keen design sense moved this rennovation in the right direction from the start. Robert really held our hand through the whole thing and made us feel completely taken care of. The Wogan Works Crew were polite, professional and considerate. They were able to get a phenominal amount of work done in such short period of time. We can't emphasize enough how greatful we were to have found a Hudson Valley Building Contractor that was sensative to our needs, kept within our budget and truly followed his timeline. Thank you so much Robert Wogan and your team !"

Kitchen Renovation & Lighting Design - NYC

Kitchen renovation with custom lighting
  • - "One of the first thing I did when I purchased my Manhattan apartment was to invite Robert over to discuss renovating the kitchen. I wanted something different, and thought we could bounce things around, knowing that Robert's practical side would ensure things would get done on time and on budget and his creative side would be excited about what was possible.
  • And I was thrilled at how it all came out and so has everyone who has visited. I can't imagine any other contractor that could have taken some of these crazy ideas and gotten them done. Who would have known about cast nylon that could be modified with intricate patterns on a CNC router but someone who once worked with artist Mathew Barney, recognized for working with new materials? Or how to create a wall that blended into the apartment by day and turned into red neon by night, all without breaking the bank by being very resourceful with his subcontractors?
  • If you've got a complex job, one that needs meticulous attention to detail, or one in need of some creative problem solving, I highly recommend you give Robert a call. "
