The Home town Holiday walk was a few Sundays back as of this post. However i figured i would give a little up date as to what went on. Houck Remodeling was open during the event (from 1-5), and we had about 2-3 dozen people come through the doors of our showroom (no where near […]

The vanity, top, faucet, and medicine cabinet are from Ikea (homeowner provided). They installed easily (although there were some slight modifications that needed to occur).  The light bar is also from Ikea. […]

Phase Two of the Kitchen Remodel

This is phase two. We actually had to wait a few months between phases (customers choice), which was fine but not typical. To start with we tore all the cabinets out and the soffit.  Once the soffit area was exposed there were all kinds of electrical lines and a plumbing vent that had to be […]

Two phase Kitchen Project

This kitchen project was a two phase project. The first phase entailed removing the non-load bearing walls and installing a new tile floor. In the photos below you can get a feel for how it looked prior to any tear out. The last photo has a shot of the old kitchen. The walls came out […]
