Who We Are

A team of professionals primed to love
your old home as much as you do

For all their characterful qualities, old houses and renovations go together like brick and mortar. Kitchens and bathrooms are our specialty, but our experience is broad. Ask us about remodeling anywhere from basement to attic. Whatever the space in need of TLC, we pride ourselves on our expertise, craftsmanship, quality products, attention to detail, and customer satisfaction. Our renovators are insured, licensed professionals, and members of the Milwaukee chapter of NARI (National Association of the Remodeling Industry). Let’s meet the team.
