A Message from Jake Schloegel

One of the best parts of my job is visiting a completed project a few months after we have finished.  The homeowners have been enjoying their newly remodeled space and are usually eager to have us take some photos of it so we can post them on our web site.

Soffit Solutions

Hi Jake,

I have a soffit in my kitchen that I would like to remove to place 42 inch cabinets. I have an old home built in the 30's that has plaster walls. I removed the soffit wall so that I could also add insulation, but I found two pipes that come out about 4 inches from the wall.

Decorative Crowned Cabinets

Hi Jake,

A friend of mine wants to build 13 inch wall cabinets under a 12 inch flat section of a tray ceiling. Then attach crown to the top of the cabinets that will stick out into the room. Is it possible to do this and have it look nice?

Linda,

I wouldn’t like the look.

Kirei: A Green Material

If you're thinking about implementing Green materials in your home for your next remodel project, Kirei design materials are a great option. Kirei is a natural, sustainable material that can be used for cabinetry, furniture, paneling and much more.

Indicative of it's sustainability, Kirei board is manufactured from reclaimed sorghum straw.

Galley Kitchen Designs

Jake,

I live in a small tudor home with a galley kitchen. I know it would be very expensive to add on (I also need new appliances) so just wanting to get some resources for ideas.

Thank you,

Barbara

Barbara,

We have some photos of galley kitchens on our web site.

Basement Remodel

We are putting the finishing touches on a lower level finish.  Part of this basement was finished years ago by a previous homeowner and we were able to expand on that for an economical addition to this home. This expanded finished area includes a television room, half bathroom and storage closet.
