Well have no fear - remodeling is our job and we do it everyday! If you are just a bit curious, keep reading what fears we hear and what we do to calm them.Read More
All new to the line up...Remodeling Overview Seminar. We have spent the past several years sharing the how to's of Bath & Kitchen remodeling, and honestly, there are some cross-over topics for these two types of projects. We often, however, have clients that really need that reliable general contractor to handle their other home remodeling needs as well as the kitchen and bath.Read More
Remodeling a kitchen and need a little inspiration? direction? someone to show you the path from A (the desire) to B (the final completion of a beautiful kitchen)? Well step right up, I mean SIGN right up!
Most people realize that remodeling a kitchen is more than picking out cabinets and countertops. In fact, there is more to picking out a quality cabinet than some are ready to tackle. And when looking at a reasonable budget,Read More
Oh, you thought we were talking about cabinetry hardware!? We can do that in the near future...today, we share the details on the shiny hardware we brought home from the DreamMaker Annual Reunion, held in Murfreesboro, TN in June.

So what is the trend? What is the fashion? What is in style, vogue, the craze or all the rage? Well, I'm not sure if Central Illinois falls in and out of trends quite as often or as deeply as other parts of the United States. I think that is probably a good thing...especially when investing in a kitchen remodel. We don't see people remodeling a kitchen every 5 years, or rarely every 10 years (although updates is another story).
