ABOUT

Growing up in one of Stillwater's historic homes, is where my love of old homes began.   

At 19, I purchased my first home built in 1875.    It is here that I fell in love with

Remodeling  & Restoration.    My career started in Remodeling and Commercial Property Management in Stillwater and then continued to the Chicago area

where I worked mostly on multi-unit Stone and Brick buildings.   During this time,

my wife completed her degree and started working in the Interior Design field.   

After 5+ years we decided to move back, settling in rural western WI.   

I worked for 7 years as a Job Supervisor for a Custom Home Builder.  

This is where I gained a lot of experience with Energy Efficiencies, Green Building

and Sustainable Building Practices.    When the new construction market came to a hault,

I turned my focus back to remodeling.   It is at this time that the two of us combined our knowledge to provide Full Remodeling and Design Services.   

Now I am taking my 30+ years of work experience and putting it to work for others doing Home Inspections and Consulting.

"When I tell people I have an Interior Design degree they think, curtains, carpet, paint..."   Design is so much more, it's first about how to make a house the best HOME for you.    How it works or functions for the occupants needs.   Once this is accomplished then we can put the "icing on the cake", the curtains, carpet, paint...
