Whole House Remodeling Making Old Houses into New Homes
"When our contractor retired last year, we were nervous and apprehensive about starting our next large renovation, a Kitchen and 3 Bathrooms. John and his team were just great to work with. The quality of his work and his communication with us during this process (of remodeling) was just fantastic. Certainly way beyond our expectations."

Who Would Request a Whole House Remodel?
Every whole house remodel completed by @designREMODEL has been for a new homeowner who has purchased a house that is 20+ years old. They desire that their old house look and feel like a new home prior to moving in. In fact, the Cape Cod whole house remodels that we have completed in the past have been for homeowners that prefer to have their new home “Just Perfect” prior to moving in.
They recognize that this type of project requires a considerable investment, and also that doing the work up front saves them time and money in the long run, as they can move in and start enjoying their new home. Rather then be the frazzled and stressed out new homeowner facing the daunting task of transforming an old house into a new home while they're living in it, they can move right in and spend time on activities that are important to them.
How Long Does a Whole House Remodel Take?
From start to finish of the actual work, whole house remodels can be completed in a little as five weeks. Some have taken eight weeks, and we had one that took six months. (Planning time is not included in the above time frames.) The keys to getting a project done in a timely manner are superb planning and focused decision making, both things at which the team at @designREMODEL excels!
