Seeing the impressive 3D renderings, the thrift store finds, the unexpected issues and the dramatic final reveal is enough to make you jump online and search for a local contractor on the next commercial break. It’s no wonder so many of our clients mention an HGTV show as the main source of inspiration for their remodel!
