Customizing your new home for the way you live

Most people dream of making some changes in their new home when they buy, but most people also don't have the time, skill or resources to do it on their own… at least not right away. But don't think it has to be big-time remodeling to have your home customized.

Here is an example of clients who had some work done before they even moved here from across the country. I recommended Fair and Square Remodeling and they were happy with both the work and the process from afar.

They wanted to update the look of the living room fireplace and add some bookshelves…

They also were short a bathroom, so had one created in a corner of the basement… primary concern was functionality. Even though it didn't use upscale design, fixtures and finishes (which Fair and Square could have done) it was still expertly finished… and fit in perfectly, looking as if it had always been there.

Remember that renovations are customized to match your style and price point… don't assume it has to be an upscale renovation to have it professionally done. That is the whole point of custom work… it is designed to fit your budget and the way you live.
