Proof of proper insulation

This photo is of a house Schloegel Design Remodel recently remodeled. We converted the attic space on the left side into a bedroom with a full bathroom. Notice the snow on the roof that is still present. The right side of the roof, which covers finished space as well, is free of snow.

Historical Hyde Park Project Before

We are really excited to be starting a project in historical Hyde Park.  This wonderful duplex was built in 1921, and still posses many of the beautiful, unique qualities found in buildings built during that era.  The generous moldings, doors and trim are original.

One-Week Bath: Round 2

This is a photo of our lead carpenter, Ted Kincaid, working on installing a tile floor in one of our bathroom remodels.

This complete, custom bathroom remodel was completed in 6 days in an 80+-year-old house.  This is the second One-Week Bath bathroom we have completed for this homeowner.

A shocking discovery

You never know what you might uncover when remodeling an old house. Someone decided to chisel out a track for a wire rather than getting the wire back into the wall the way it should have been done. This wire was covered by a mirror which provided some protection against an electrical shock, still not the best way to do it.

Photos from the NARI Remodeled Homes Tour

We recently participated in the KC NARI Remodeled Homes tour, showing two of our remodeling projects – a kitchen remodel in Brookside and in Fairway.  Over 300 people visited the homes.

Pictured in the Brookside home is Chris Peterson, one of our Production Managers and in the Fairway home is Donna Kirsopp, the design consultant.

Recently, our very own Debby Allmon was featured in the Handyman section of the Kansas City Star. Debby is a certified remodeler and Vice President here at Schloegel Design Remodel.

Debby was featured in the article as she answered a question submitted by a reader of the KC Star.

More Remodeling Fun from the Past: 1950s Design vs Now

We are having fun with the remodeling and decorating book from 1954!!

In this blog we are showing two “cellar” remodels that were high style in 1954 and one that Schloegel Design Remodel completed in 2010.

Do you think things have changed much?

Leawood Rotary and the Urban Rangers

The Leawood Rotary club recently raised over $3500 in their annual Christmas Auction.  The money was evenly divided between Marillac School, www.marillac.org and the Urban Rangers, www.urckc.org, two very deserving organizations.  The photo shows the two auctioneers, Stu Sharp and Jake Schloegel, demonstrating one of the auction items.

Dramatic Bathroom Makeover!

 

Wow what a dramatic bathroom makeover from Schloegel's One Week Bath!  The old pink tile and pedestal sink came out in this bedroom bath and was replaced with classic white subway tile and a furniture style cabinet with Carrera marble top.
