Whole House Remodel

When we modify the dwellings we live in, we extend features we like, eliminate what is not pleasing to us, add what the house does not have that we want. These changes are realized in simple or complex ways and may involve:

  • Adding to a house or altering the size and shape
  • Color and texture
  • Furnishings and art work
  • Light and lighting
  • Windows, doors and the moldings that encase them
