For our featured blog this month, we are sharing part 3 of our 4-part blog series featuring our recent whole house remodel in Arlington, Texas. This post includes the complete details of the master bathroom renovation and the addition of a glamorous walk-in closet within the bathroom. What an amazing contribution to this updated home! Check out this beautiful transformation on our blog.
It’s hard to believe we’re already in the last few months of 2019! Fall is just about here, which means the busy hustle and bustle of the holidays is just around the corner. While most people enjoy the holidays and the change of pace that it entails, it can easily be one of the most stressful times – for homeowners in particular. Not only do you have to think about gift shopping, special events, unusual work schedules, and potential traveling, but you also have to prepare your home to endure the harsh weather and elements that come with the season. Unfortunately, cooler, wetter weather can wreak havoc on your house if it has not been properly maintained!
Because no one wants to be hit with an unexpected home repair bill during the already expensive holiday season, the best thing you can do is make a conscious effort to prep your home throughout the weeks leading up to winter. You might think it’s not a big deal; why fix something if it’s not broken? The answer is that, more often than not, the expense of an emergency home repair far exceeds the cost of maintenance before the damage is done. Similar to the expression “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure,” it’s in your best interest to keep your home in great working order instead of waiting until something goes wrong to address an issue.
On top of the additional expense, it’s much more difficult to find a professional that is available to provide their services during the holidays. Most businesses have shorter hours and are closed for multiple days, meaning their available work schedules fill up much more quickly. It can be extremely frustrating to call one handyman after another only to hear that no one has any time to fit you in right before the holidays. Save yourself the struggle and get these things done ahead of time!
Here are a few home maintenance projects you should consider having done before the cold winter months arrive:
1. Clean out the gutters
As much as we all hate to do it, cleaning out the gutters is a must. Clogged gutters can be a dangerous hazard during the winter months. Water and debris freezing in the gutters can make them very heavy, causing them to break and fall. Not only can this be dangerous to you, but it can also cause serious damage to your home. Who wants to pay for gutter repair or replacement when cleaning them out a few times a year can easily prevent this problem?

This specific blog features the updates we completed in the living spaces, including two gorgeous fireplaces, custom built-in cabinetry, paint, flooring, and lighting. You’ve got to see this stunning transformation!
Check out the stunning updates we made to the living spaces in our recent whole house remodel!
Our recent clients owned a home in Arlington, TX for several years with the intention of completely remodeling it. They came to us with the idea originally in 2015, but chose to wait until the time was right for them to get started. We received a call from them at the end of last year, and have since been able to complete their whole house remodel! We’ll be posting a series of 4 blog posts to showcase the details of this major project, starting with the kitchen. Check out the beautiful transformation in our most recent post!
Our featured project this month involved solving a problem many work-from-home individuals face: not having a designated home office to work from each day. Our recent clients in Southlake had a large upstairs bonus room we were able to convert to a spacious home office and loft area for their kids to enjoy. We also updated the staircase, the kitchenette, and the guest bath, along with all of the paint and flooring, resulting in an entirely renovated upstairs space. Check out the blog to see the details of this fantastic transformation!
Every now and then, we like to feature one of our older projects in our monthly newsletter to relive the transformation and showcase the project to our growing mailing list. It’s hard to believe this Grand Prairie kitchen remodel was completed just over 2 years ago! At the time, our clients needed a more functional kitchen with increased storage space, an improved layout, and of course, an updated aesthetic! Check out the blog to see how our designers recreated this space for a stunning, functional finished product!
Late spring through the end of summer are when the temperatures in North Texas really heat up! There are a lot of good things that come with warm weather – cookouts, sporting events, family trips, and checking off those home projects you have been putting off. Unfortunately, warm weather also brings some not-so-good things, like an increase in your electric bill. In fact, according to the US Energy Information Administration, the United States used more energy last year than ever recorded before! Our guess is that the energy usage will continue to climb as the years go on. The good news is, there are a number of things (easy things!) you can do to use less energy and still keep your home cool; benefiting both the environment and your wallet!
This month’s project spotlight is on our recently completed 1990’s master bathroom remodel in North Richland Hills. The original bathroom was very dated (we’re talking pink wallpaper!) and was way past due for a refresh. The updated design includes custom vanities, a frameless glass shower, a 60″ drop-in soaker tub, LED can lighting, and more! Check out the blog for the full details of this beautiful remodel!
