It’s Time To Finish Those Projects

By | Custom Home Building, Small Projects | No Comments

As we move out of summer and into a new season, it’s a great time to think about those big fall projects. With the kids heading back to school, and life returning to business as usual, why not take this opportunity to finally get those dream projects done? Here are some areas where we can be a great resource for you.

Often when homeowners begin thinking about home additions, they think in terms of building out. Have you considered building up? This is a great option for those with limited space around their home or restrictions such as water or trees. Whether it’s building an extra room over the existing garage or adding a complete second story – building up can be a great solution to your space needs. Regardless of the space you have available, we can help.

When you walk through your home, are you happy with what you see? Is there a bathroom or kitchen you’ve been dying to do a complete overhaul on? You’ll be amazed at the difference a remodel will make, not only in home value, but also in the joy and renewal it can bring. We have customers tell us how they enjoy cooking again, or cooking together, because the kitchen is now a comfortable, functional space. Or, that the master bath finally feels like a spa and place of relaxation, not frustration.

Give us a call today at 757.819.4466 to discuss your new room, additional floor addition or remodeling needs. We’re detail-oriented craftsmen who are experts on code compliance, as well as knowing what tends to work for families like yours.

Small Projects That Can Make A Big Difference

Spring has always been a great time to update your home. Take a look at these home design updates that will instantly brighten your home and make it more attractive to potential buyers or simply more enjoyable for you.

The front door is your home’s first impression. Installing a new and stylish front door will be a warm welcome to your home. Adding French doors leading to your outdoor space can bring much needed light into your home and make a room feel big and airy. French doors can also turn an unused formal living room into a functional office. How about installing a barn door to add a fresh feel to your kitchen pantry or add one to your bedroom to give it a cozy and comfortable look.

Now is the perfect time to think outside of the home when looking for ways to enhance both the beauty and quality of life for you and your family. A deck addition or replacement is the perfect choice for grilling and entertainment. Decks can be built off of the lower floor of your home or they can also be added to an upper level room in a rooftop setting.

Enhanced curb appeal is important to most homeowners and the most dramatic transformation that will instantly get attention is the addition or an enhancement of the front porch. An impressive entry way can be showcased with a beautifully designed and built porch that is also useful for relaxation with neighbors and family!

Your kitchen is a great place to start when it comes to upgrades. A new back splash is a high impact improvement that makes a world of difference. Adding an island is a great way to increase storage and seating to a small kitchen. An eat-in kitchen offers a big advantage when you are ready to sell your home. Consider adding a built in bench with a banquet table for a unique touch.

Adding new light fixtures is an easy way to update your home. Painting your home in bright, neutral colors will always go a long way to making your home feel clean and new. If you are painting, you might as well go the extra mile and upgrade your switch plates and replace your doorknobs as well. Taking the time to make these little changes can make a big difference.

Sprucing up your home will give you a well-deserved sense of relaxation when you walk through the door. Decide on the upgrade that your home needs the most and contact the Schneider Custom Builders team to make your small project dreams a reality. You will be glad you did!

This Year Resolve to Have Your Dream Home

For many people New Year’s Resolutions involve physical health — dieting and exercise. Too often we overlook our mental health resolutions – like resolving to have less stress, or to finally take care of that to-do list or home improvement project.

If you have a list of things to work on around the home, it can feel overwhelming — especially when there are more fun things to do with your time, or you lack the expertise to do the job to an expert craftsman level.  Whether you have a few small items on your list, or have larger ambitions to finally add that art studio or sunroom, make this the year of getting things done!

At Schneider Custom Builders, we are accustomed to working with homeowners who need a little help to get their house to dream home status.  Or, as is sometimes the case, with small projects around the house that will reduce stress, improve performance (lighting, ceiling fans, fireplace inserts) or are pre-sale fixups.  Our commitment to homeowners means you’ll get an honest assessment of your projects, a fair price and quality craftsmanship that you simply won’t find in the handyman or remodeling trades.

We use the same skilled personnel and project planning, no matter what size the project.  If you are ready to let go of some stress, or finally add the element that you’ve been dreaming of, contact us today and let’s start the conversation.
