Homeowners Think Their Bathroom Transformation Is the “Cat’s Meow”

When Sarah and Felix Scheuplein moved into their Weston home three years ago, they knew right away that they didn’t love the primary bathroom, but it was “mostly” functional so they chose to live with it for a while. As a result, they knew just what they wanted when the time finally came to remodel […]

Whole Home Remodel/Expansion Part 3: Building an Airtight Addition – Blower Door Testing

What was once simply empty space above the garage (read more here) has now been completely framed out.

“Quality Time” during the Quarantine for the steveworks Team

It feels like every time you look at social media you see pictures of people spending their time taking up new hobbies (sourdough, anyone?) to make their time at home during the quarantine more enjoyable.

Steveworks Shuts Down Field Work, but Continues Planning Remodeling Projects

For some homeowners, remodeling a kitchen and choosing appliances means going “bigger” – double ovens, 6-8 burners on the stovetop, or adding a steam oven or warming drawer.

A few weeks ago we installed the HVAC system now that the walls are up and the unit is insulated. The main section of the home has a gas fired furnace […]
