Remodeling an antique home presents many unique challenges. Floors are typically not level and the walls are not plumb. We seldom work on buildings that are level or plumb so we know how to correct these problems quickly and efficiently.
In the process of remodeling an antique home it is common to find water damage. A small amount of water coming into a building over many years can cause a great deal of damage. We have the equipment needed to replace structural elements quickly and efficiently.

There are no shortage of McMansions going up in this area of the country. Many of them have expensive details and high end features.

Whether we are remodeling one room or a whole house, we try to maintain the unique antique charm of the house.
