Below is a list of comments from previous
clients of Mountain Design.
"We are delighted with our new kitchen,
designed and installed by Yves. As part of our renovation
we doubled the size and completely replaced the existing kitchen
area. We wanted a high quality finish and complete blending
with the existing interior. We found Yves's design, innovative
touches and thoughtfulness on aspects we would not have considered,
to be excellent. He also sourced a wonderful block of wood
for our island matching our interior. We were not present
in Canada during the renovation and found dealing with Yves
long distance to be very easy and that we could totally trust
his judgment and execution."

In January of 2008 we contracted with Yves
Wenger, owner of Mountain Design, Inc. to do a complete renovation
of the kitchen of our townhome at Stoneridge in Whistler.
The project involved the replacement of all cabinets, counters,
flooring, ceiling, lighting, plumbing fixtures and appliances
excluding the dishwasher. In addition, heated stone flooring
was installed in the entry area and a below deck storage area
enclosed. Working with Yves and his subcontractors we had
selected almost all of the materials and fixtures before the
start of the work. We agreed on a timetable of two months
during which we did not intend to use our unit. Yves gave
us a schedule of the activities that would go on during that
period. We arranged for the transfer of funds for Yves to
draw on during the process as we planned to be out of the
country for part of the time while the work was going on.
We did not visit or see the premises from the time the work
started on about April 28 until we moved back in on July 6.
On our return we found that the overall appearance and the
quality of the workmanship exceeded our expectations and met
all of the objectives we had for the project. The work was
completed on time and at a cost below the budgeted estimate.
We especially noted the care that had been taken to protect
areas not involved in the project as well as the thoroughness
of the cleanup. Both before and during the course of the project
Yves was diligent in contacting us by e-mail when questions
came up or choices presented themselves in materials or fixtures.
In these situations he showed an ability to meet the quality
level we desired while being sensitive to cost saving opportunities.
He also took the initiative to point out and with our consent
make needed improvements and repairs to our property that
we had not been aware of. His periodic invoices were complete
and in sufficient detail. Throughout the entire process we
were struck both by Yves’ pride in his work and that
he treated our project as though it was his own home.
In summary we would give our unqualified recommendation of
Yves Wenger to anyone considering working with him on a similar
