Regretting your design? Consider remodeling.

There are a million different reasons to redesign a space. We recently read a blog that reminded us of one of the most common reasons: functionality. Does a wall in your home just not make sense to you? Or maybe a closet could be better placed somewhere else to open up a room.

Lower Level Living Part 2

Our clients remodel their lower levels for various reasons, whether it’s to create an in-home bowling alley, a walk-in cellar or just some extra cozy space for their family. In a previous post we showed you a basement transformation in which the homeowners came to Schloegel Design Remodel because they needed more space to spend time together as a family.

Debby Allmon on bedroom soundproofing

Q. In 2010, I bought a home built in 1956. I love the house, however, there are noisy people who live nearby. They play their music loudly with the bass thumping late at night.

We just finished a great project with our client, Michelle Cour, and she was so pleased with her renovations that she treated the team to lunch at the 75th St. Brewery!  Debby, Brad, Megan, Jake, Tom and Michelle had a delicious lunch and shared funny remodeling stories.

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.

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.

Table transformation

Family history will be preserved in this kitchen makeover. Sally and Don raised their children around this maple butcher block table.

We have planned a new kitchen island that will utilize this modified and renewed table as the new island counter.

Not only are we restoring a piece of family history, but we're also recycling lumber.
