A little history on the Renaissance Man

Thomas Koch was born in Mannheim, Germany. He dabbled in the arts and became a gourmet pastry chef and ice sculpture artist before moving on to Hotel Management school in Heidelberg Germany. During Thomas’ prior professions, he always was involved with some type of renovation work. After Hurricane Katrina in 2005 Thomas decided to make full time job for his passion for renovations. He brings the precision of the delicate ice sculptures and artistry from his sugar sculptures’ experience into his contract work. The Renaissance Man has now been in New Orleans for 15 years with a wife, two sons and three dogs and many happy customers.

I couldn’t have asked for better quality work from Thomas and his crew. They spent two weeks completing the job which was exactly the time estimate for work. Thomas came to the house to give an estimate for labor, including electricians and plumbers. He was spot on with their costs. The electrician and plumbers were excellent and offered advice when needed. Thomas also helped me with some ideas. He sent me an estimate that evening. I spent the next day on the internet looking for vanity, sink, toilet, cabinets, and jet tub. I decided that Lowes had the best selection. I went to the Lowes on Claiborne and worked with Julia who helped me with coordinating everything. I decided to purchase off the floor because of the cost advantage. I then went out of town for two weeks. Lowes held all of the items and Thomas picked it up in stages. It was seemless. Thomas ended up making a couple of extra trips to Lowes for me due to a broken sink and wrong shower door. He took away all of the trash and cleaned up every day. I recommend using the Renaissance Man for any renovation project.
