Kitchen Remodel

This 1970’s kitchen was in of a complete remodel. We gutted the kitchen & added diagonal hardwood floors in the kitchen & dining room. We expanded the kitchen area slightly to increase storage area & countertop space. By enlarging the island we were able to double the storage space, add a breakfast bar & put the microwave in a base cabinet. Believe it or not, these countertops are laminate. By using Formica’s 180FX high definition laminate tops we saved the client some cost but still achieved the marble look & feel. The shaker style cherry cabinets contrast well with the greenish marble look tops. The owners were going to paint the walls at a later date. All in all, this kitchen remodel is a wonderful...

We wrapped the house with Tyvek & used barn red vinyl siding with shakes on the ends for a nice contrast. Call us for your garage addition or pole barn...

Court St.

This historic home in downtown Howell was in need of new siding. We removed the old siding & installed real wood clapboard siding. Our goal was to give the home an update but still stay period correct with our renovations. The homeowners chose to paint or stain the exterior themselves.

Not every contractor knows how to apply them properly; luckily we do & we are here to help. Call us for help with your historic...
