Remodeler’s Remodeling Update February 12, 2017

We are just about done with our remodel, so Betsy has the task of creating the punch list, and putting blue tape on items that need addressed. The man cave (basement), is turning out to be the unintentional crown jewel of this project. But let’s not forget the Mac Daddy kitchen which is still great. And it will be greater when the new Dacor 42” fridge gets installed. #goodthingscometothosethatwait #patienceisavirtue To say we have overbuilt for the neighborhood would be a understatement. But, since we will be using it to show customers examples of what products and solutions we can do, hopefully, that will add value in different ways.

The basement is using a lot of cabinets that were repurposed from our Appliance World showroom, making some custom pieces to fill in some blanks. Prewiring for 7.1 surround sound makes a big difference, and sounds amazing! We reinstalled that system from the old house. This will be where I get to have some of my collectibles on display – Harley Davidson gear, Steelers and sports memorabilia, Comic and Movie related items, etc.

My stay in our “shared” office upstairs is going to be short-lived, as I am being moved to the basement to set up my home office down there. My organization “system” is not neat enough, and drives Betsy a little crazy. #neatfreak

Let's Talk

Have an idea you'd like to bring to life or want expert advice?

  • We absolutely LOVE the kitchen - it has transformed the house and now finally feels like the heart of our home. I have to get used to cooking in less time now that the appliances actually work properly and the flow of the kitchen is so much more efficient! Thanks again! I have already spoken to Stephanie but I have 3 bathrooms to remodel next so you’re not rid of us yet! - Beth M.
  • We are very happy with our decision to hire Distinctive Remodeling to renovate our 3 bedroom, 1960s house into a stylish, modern and functional home! They consistently went the extra mile to make sure we were satisfied. The results are breathtaking! We love our house! - Deanna R.
  • Eddie did a fantastic job on our kitchen remodel. He did exactly what I wanted, and the craftsmanship is superb. The subs were great, and I felt very comfortable with them in my home. They even put up with my four dogs! When the project was done, Eddie and his wife Betsy cooked a delicious meal for 10 of our friends. I highly recommend Distinctive Remodeling. - Shauna E.

  • Eddie and his team were a pleasure to work with, especially for a first-time renovation experience. He came out to our home on a weeknight to accommodate our work schedules and followed up immediately with a very reasonable quote. He communicated exactly what was needed for the job and completed the job on-time even with unexpected snow days! He captured what we had envisioned for the space and well exceeded our expectations. We are very happy with our 3-seasons room, the quality of craftsmanship and the level of knowledge and professionalism of the Distinctive Remodeling Team. - Sean G.
