So many people move into their new home and just “look past” the aspects of the home they aren’t fully in love with. Maybe it’s the kitchen, or the unfinished basement. Months go by (or maybe years) with remodeling projects looming. You buy (and pine over) every Minneapolis home remodeling magazine you can get your hands on, tearing out pages for remodeling inspiration. You spend hours on Houzz looking at every general contractor in your area. Choosing a general contractor can seem like a daunting task as there are so many general contractors in Prior Lake, not to mention home construction companies the greater twin cities metro!

There’s a lot of manage during a kitchen renovation. It is helpful to think about where you’ll cook (take-out, anyone?), how you’ll do dishes (bathtubs come in handy here), and what it means for traffic flow through the house. But logistics such as getting permits are on us.
How will you quote my home construction project?
We can start with a phone call or message (or both). Describe to us what you’re looking for, and we may be able to give you some rough estimates. Do you want to renovate the kitchen? Or are you looking for a kitchen and bath update? Kitchen redo as part of a full home remodel? We’ll also ask about specific requests. Like, should you go with the Wolf 48″ Sealed Burner Rangetop with 6 Burners and Infrared Charbroiler you’re been drooling over for years? Or a more modest 4-burner stovetop with 20,000 BTU dual-ovens and an infrared ceramic broiler? Custom height cabinetry using barn wood from your family farm? Specialty drawer pulls made of imported Venetian glass? Oof, some options can get pricy. But don’t forget how much time you spend at home in these spaces (especially now!). These details are important and can be the difference between wow and WOW! We’ll help you navigate the options and decisions.
After we’ve talked about your project, you can invite us over to have a (socially distant) look at your space and after that we’ll come up with a kitchen remodel plan we’re all excited about (yes, we’re general contractors so we still get excited about this stuff!).
