The Alpiner-Stein Family

Even before they bought their charming Cape Cod-style home, Neal Alpiner figured his wife, Tobye Stein, was already visualizing the

transformation of ugly under-utilized space into a library of perfect proportion.

“A library wasn’t a must have,” she recalled, “but it was something that would be nice to have.”

“Nice” understates the quality of the space the couple now enjoy after a phone call to Gittleman Construction got them going on their home improvement project. Meeting directly with Scott Gittleman, Tobye shared her goals, among them,
“It had to look like a real library and it needed more light.” And her design criteria, “I got hooked on an idea of a castle.”

Scott came through with well-lit, floor-to-ceiling bookshelves plus dramatic castle-like arch accents in a room that exceeds the couple’s expectations yet stayed within their budget.

“We really liked their workmanship,” said Neal. “They came when they said and when you called them, they called you right back.”

As to future projects, Neal’s certain there will be more, and Gittleman’s number is nearby.

So next time you’re dreaming of turning unattractive, under used space into something spectacular, turn to Gittleman for help from start to finish.
