There are few things more rewarding than a quiet, serene space to relax. This is one of the big reasons master bathroom remodels are so highly sought after among homeowners! Our recent client in Flower Mound, Texas, felt the same way. Her master bathroom was over 20 years old needed a renovation to better serve as an at-home escape. She came to us with hopes of recreating the space into something she had always wanted; something she could enjoy for years to come!

Remodeling for Elderly Parents: 5 Age-in-Place Options to Consider

There are many reasons homeowners choose to remodel, from updating aesthetics, to improving functionality, to increasing resale value. Another common request we receive is for assistance in making accommodations for elderly parents. This can either involve our clients remodeling their own home to allow for parents to move in or remodeling their parent’s home to prepare for aging-in-place. Either situation can be difficult, as making provisions for elderly parents can be stressful and emotional. Our goal in assisting with age-in-place remodeling is to simplify the process for both the clients and their parents to make for the best experience possible! Read more

Our April 2021 Newsletter

A galley kitchen remodel can be one of the more challenging home projects if improving storage space or changing the layout is the end goal. The limited space in these types of kitchens often prevents major structural changes from being made. Luckily, small changes can still make a big impact! Our recent client in Fort Worth wanted to breathe new life into her narrow 1960’s galley kitchen without sacrificing valuable countertop and cabinet space. Our team was able to identify the changes that could be made to improve storage, functionality, and overall aesthetic. The finished renovation is exactly what our client had in mind! Check out this amazing transformation in this month’s project blog. Read more

What are ‘Budget Items’ in Regard to My Home Remodel?

Aside from wanting to see detailed floor plans and 3D renderings, there is one primary reason homeowners choose to purchase our custom design package for their major remodel: to receive an all-inclusive price quote for their unique project. The Scope of Work document we provide as a part of your design package allows you to see exactly what is included – everything from foundation work to framing, to plumbing, electrical, and so on — and the total cost of everything as installed by the Medford Team. Your total project cost includes installation, materials, and labor, plus the total cost of your Budget Items. This bottom-line number is your total project cost. Since your Budget Items are the portion you as the homeowner get to control, we’d like to discuss them a little further: Read more

A Classic 1960’s Galley Kitchen Gets a Mid-Century Modern Upgrade

You might think there isn’t much that can be done for a galley kitchen – removing an entire wall would take away valuable cabinet and countertop space, and the limited square footage makes it nearly impossible to change the layout at all. The good news is that you don’t have to completely change the layout or remove walls to create a beautifully updated aesthetic. Our most recent kitchen remodel in Fort Worth is a prime example!

Our client’s home was built in 1965. She inherited the home and knew that it needed to be remodeled, starting with the kitchen. Due to the existing floor plan, the option of completely opening the kitchen into the living room was unrealistic, since that side of the kitchen housed the sink, the dishwasher, and cabinet storage.  She met with our team in hopes of updating the kitchen without having to compromise on storage or counter space.

Your front door is not only your first line of defense in keeping your home safe, but it also serves as a focal point and first impression piece for visitors.

Our recent clients in Grapevine had been meaning to replace their faulty front door for quite some time, and our handyman division was thrilled to help them get the job done! See the full story on our blog!

The Timeline of a Remodel: What to Expect

We recently had a client contact us about having his kitchen remodeled. Upon discussing our process of completion from designs to construction, he asked a common question we hear from almost all of our clients: “how long will the entire remodel take to complete?

This is a great question! Everyone wants to know exactly how long it will be until they are able to enjoy their new kitchen, bathroom, or other remodeled space. Unfortunately, there is not a “canned answer” we can offer to everyone because we don’t always know exactly how long certain steps of the process will take. For example, obtaining the required permits could take several weeks depending on the city and the project, which could push back the start date significantly. This definitely isn’t common (in most cases, we receive the permit within 10 business days), but it is a possibility, and we’re sure to educate our clients on the process and timeline prior beginning the work.

Our December 2020 Newsletter

It’s early December and most definitely fireplace season! The chilly weather, lights, sights, and sounds of the holidays makes cuddling up by a warm fireplace even more enjoyable. Our recent clients came to us earlier this year with hopes of remodeling their fireplace to create the perfect spot to cozy up next to this winter, along with a show-stopping focal point for their living room. We were blessed with the ability to remodel nearly every room in this client’s home over the last few years, and the fireplace was one of the major projects that continued to get pushed further down the list. They were beyond excited to finally get this renovation done, and it turned out perfect! Take a look at the blog for the full story, photos, and video on this luxury fireplace remodel. Read more
