Completed Kitchen Remodel

As a design and build company, kitchen remodeling is at the top of our list of expertise. Kitchen remodels that we complete usually involve a complete demolition, from the wall board down to the framing, followed by adding new everything.

Recently, we completed a kitchen design and remodel in Eden Prairie. Click here to see pictures from the remodel. Below is a summary of what was completed during the remodel for the designed space.
