Our February 2021 Newsletter

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. From choosing the right door to having it ordered and installed correctly, replacing a front door unit can feel like a big project. 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!

How Much Will My Home Remodel Cost?

The first and most important question you should answer before starting any type of home remodel is how much it will realistically cost. Typically, there isn’t a straight-forward answer to that question without scheduling an on-site consultation and paying for a detailed estimate and design. Because no two projects and no two homeowners are the same, the total cost of your project will depend on multiple variables. This means that even if your neighbor a few houses down has the exact same floor plan as you, built in the same year, your total cost could come in more or less than theirs simply based on your unique scope of work. You also must consider the level of remodeling you intend to do – whether it is a full-gut project that involves moving walls and rearranging the original footprint, or if you just want to update the space you have with new paint, tile, counters, etc. The types of materials, finishes, hardware, and appliances you choose also impacts the final price. For example, two homeowners with the same kitchen layout will have different totals if one chooses standard elements, such as a basic undermount sink and chrome faucet, and the other chooses high-end elements, such as a farmhouse-style sink with a brushed gold faucet. Of course, everyone wants the more expensive options often featured on HGTV renovation shows. Unfortunately, these shows tend to create unrealistic expectations regarding the actual costs, timelines, and processes involved in home remodeling. Read more

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

Our October 2020 Newsletter

There are a lot of variables that go into building an addition on a home —  the property lines, drainage, the roof tie-in, and of course, ensuring that the addition will match the existing structure architecturally and aesthetically. Each of these, among other important items, were carefully addressed for our recent carport addition project in Arlington.

Our team not only wanted to make sure that the project was done correctly and to code, but also that it solved the client’s dilemmas regarding storage space, a shelter for their cars, and a place to house their exotic plants during the winter. The solution was to convert the existing garage into a storage room and add a luxurious carport to the spacious driveway. The finished project is absolutely stunning and meets all of the client’s needs! Read more

Our September 2020 Newsletter

We’ve completed a ton of kitchen remodels, each with their own unique story, special features, and creative aesthetic. Our team loves to reminisce on past projects as a job well done! One of our favorite kitchen renovations was this 1961 kitchen we had the pleasure of remodeling last year. When we first visited our client’s home, the kitchen had the original layout, cabinets, countertops, and lighting — all of which were in severe need of an update! Our team was thrilled with the opportunity to help bring our client’s dream kitchen to life with improved storage space, modern features, and an upgraded look. Read more

Our August 2020 Newsletter

Our featured progress this month is a glamorous master suite addition and garage conversion we recently completed in Colleyville. Our clients came to us with a few ideas to modify their forever home so that it would better meet their needs. They knew initially that they wanted to add on a luxurious master suite, complete with a large bedroom, full master bath, and walk-in closet. This space could not only be used by the homeowners themselves but could also be used to host guests or provide somewhere for their elderly parents to stay. The clients also wanted a place for their kids to call their own, to relax, hang out with friends, and do homework. Converting the existing garage to a game room made perfect sense by utilizing an existing space they didn’t use. Read more

Our July 2020 Newsletter

Our team loves working on out-of-the-ordinary projects! This past month, we completed a unique renovation on a client’s storage shed in Burleson, TX. This old shed was used to house lawn equipment, but our clients hoped to remodel it into a potting shed so they could enjoy their gardening hobby year-round. The Medford Team was not only able to make the shed more functional for the clients but also create a beautiful new aesthetic for the building on their property. Check out the full blog to see the before and after transformation!

Our June 2020 Newsletter

We love reminiscing on past projects! This complete overhaul of a 1970’s master bathroom is one of our favorites!

Our clients in Arlington, TX had been waiting for years to remodel their master bathroom. The main issue was the large soaking tub that sat diagonally in the center of the room. The original design featured the tub as a focal point, sitting on a tiled step-up with a large cultured tile surround and decorative columns on each side, extending up to the ceiling. With large mirrors on both walls behind it, there was no ignoring that bathtub! The clients are thrilled to finally have a bathtub they are proud of, along with a completely remodeled bathroom, spacious walk-in shower, and custom vanities. Check out the transformation on our blog! Read more
