We love when our customers ask us to come back for new projects! Mike & Ashlee asked us to put new cabinets & countertops in their kitchen back in 2020. After a year or so of seeing the potential of their home growing, they asked us to put new flooring, trim, and doors in the rest of the main house. Then, we made MAJOR improvements to another area that was hardly ever used in the many years they lived there, because it had so many issues... the dining room and laundry room is now one of the functional highlights of their home!
When a potential client reaches out about siding a literal piece of history in Altona IL, our team was definitely interested! Although, the place was built in 1896, it still has very strong bones. It only needed some mild to moderate repairs on its exterior. With keeping its original character in mind, we were tasked with bringing it's appeal forward a few centuries... how did we do??

Spring is here! Living in the Midwest and working outside is always a challenge. However, with the weather improving, building new steps is a perfect outdoor project to complete for our customers.
The newly renovated stairwell and landing is finished and boy does this brighten up the space! With all the remodeling that has been going on with our customer's home, next on the list was the stairwell and landing. It was starting to stand out from the house and desperately needed fixed. We removed the plaster and installed new drywall on the stairs. Let me tell you, that was not an easy task as simple as it sounds. We also added fresh paint, installed new carpet and replaced the handrail. Upstairs landing also received new drywall, carpet, new railings and a new paint job! In the slideshow below you will see the after photo first and then the before photo.
Need additional storage? Check out our new finished project! In this bedroom there was a lack of storage space. So, we tore out the wall, expanded the closet and a cubbie was built under the staircase. Can we say Gorgeous?!
Nothing better to welcome you home than a new door! Many times we are able to upgrade for less than our customers thought possible. Give us a call and see what we can do for you! (309) 536-0866
Butcher block is one type of material that can be used on a countertop. This homeowner originally had laminate in her kitchen but wanted an update so butcher block was installed.
Here is a little background on Butcher block. It was commonly used in butcher shops and meat processing plants but has now become popular in home use. Butcher block countertops can last for 20 years or longer! This gives it a major advantage over laminate which can typically last for only 10 to 15 years.
Look how great the butcher block turned out in the photos below. This is definitely one of my favorite material for countertops, whats yours?
