I remodel kitchens, baths, basements, etc.
I also buy homes to renovate and build new homes.
Below are some pictures of past projects large and small. I build houses from the ground up and I tear them down to rebuild on the same foundation. There are pictures of a condo that burned out and I gutted and rebuilt it to better than new.
I am always looking for investors to help finance my projects. You can be silent or I even partner up with people that want to get their hands dirty and help with the renovations. If you are interested in either of these please give me a call so we can discuss.
I have connections with wholesalers that find homes at a deep discount and are usually in dire need of repair. Since I am a renovator I can give you a bid on repairs for any property that you may want to purchase. Also, since I am a Home Inspector I can tell you what the condition of the property is and I can base my bid on my findings.
This service is available for a small fee unless you hire me to do the repairs or become a partner for that particular purchase, then it’s free!
If anyone wishes to take on their own project to purchase and renovate their own home or purchase, I am available to consult on the entire project as needed. I can help you or just guide you (or both) with your project.
I use licensed electricians and plumbers for the big jobs and my company is fully insured.
I started off doing renovations back in 1976. I was fresh out of the military and looking for a place to live and work on myself to save money. My parents bought three houses in Elgin that were going to be torn down. I did have some handyman experience prior to this so they asked me to help move them across town (across the Fox river) and renovate them. I had to learn everything about a house at that point because we did everything to those houses (excluding the foundation work). Since that time I have completed many, many renovations, remodels, new construction projects and Home Inspections.
Pictures of some of those projects are below. They are quite interesting.
My personal home for 27+ years was built in 1885. So I do love to Renovate older homes. My current home was built in 2000 as a summer home and I did build it myself with family members.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
