Storage under your stairs: This is typically an unused space which can put to use with custom shelving for decoration, books or anything that comes to mind!

Custom shelving: This is a great option for storage, an entertainment center, or simple floating shelves! You dream it and we will bring it to life!

Built-in Window seat: Regardless of what area of the home a built-in window seat is, it allows comfort and coziness! Whether it’s upstairs where you can get comfortable with a blanket and a great book or if it’s in your kitchen where you can enjoy a Sunday brunch it is a great project!

French Doors: These are beautiful to showcase a closed off room while still maintaining privacy! It’s great for an office or anywhere you don’t want guests wandering in.

These are a few of the countless small projects that will make a huge impact in your home! If you want more ideas, contact us at 210-680-5626 to have Keith come over to your house to discuss potential remodeling projects for your home!

SHOULD I REMODEL NOW OR LATER? by Keith Moehle

“I want to get some remodeling done in my house, but should I get it done now or later?” This is a question we hear all the time!

When you start a remodeling project you have to invest time, money, and small inconveniences during the remodel to allow the transformation you’ve dreamed about to become reality. This being said, making a decision on when to start a remodeling project isn’t one that homeowners take lightly.

However, if you do have definite plans to remodel your home at a certain point, you should NOT wait! Now is the time to get started and we at KM BUILDERS want to let you know the reasons why.

  • First off, the cost of remodeling is always increasing. So, if you are hesitant because of finances, waiting will only make the price rise as the years go by.

  • If you remodel now, then you get to enjoy your new home for a longer amount of time! This is priceless, especially if you have areas of your home that drive you crazy.

  • Lastly, if you are going to spend at least 5 years in your home it is highly likely that you will get 100% on your original investment with KM Builders because prices in remodeling will be more expensive as the years go by!

We have professional and licensed interior designers and architects, so your remodel will stay timeless and not reduce in value!

Contact us today to have Keith and the KM Builders team get started on your remodeling project ASAP, so you can 1) Save Money AND 2) Enjoy Your Investment!

We love to give our clients an open-concept house, and we wanted to list out some of the reasons this might be an excellent option for you!

  • It makes a small space feel larger!

  • It allows you to be a better entertainer and be part of the communication during everyday tasks.

  • It is visually stunning, especially if walls are hiding a spectacular view window view!

  • Convert an underused space, like a guest bedroom or formal dining room, into an open-concept room that you will use daily!

These are all great reasons to opt for an open-concept layout, but you still have to contemplate if this is the right decision for you. If you enjoy your private, secluded areas, this might not be the trend for you. On the other hand, if you are a true entertainer an open-concept room is a no brainer! KM BUILDERS can help determine if you have load-bearing walls, and how to design an open-concept area depending on how you want to entertain all of your guests! We have degreed architects, designers, and cabinetry experts that are ready to guide you to the perfect remodel… are you ready to get started?

THE ADVANTAGES OF HIRING A DESIGN-BUILD CONTRACTOR by Keith Moehle

A homeowner has a higher chance of having a smooth remodel when they are doing business with a design-build contractor versus a general contractor.

KM BUILDERS is a Design-Build Contractor, but we are also a general contractor which means we can do any remodeling project that you need.

Let’s list out some of the advantages of choosing a design-build firm like KM BUILDERS:

  1. LICENSED PROFESSIONALS

Design-Build Contractor: Our architects & designers obtained a formal education to get proper licensing to do their job.  

General Contractor: They will call themselves a designer, because of experience not because they are licensed. At the very least, you are robbing your remodeling project its full potential. And at the worst, you will have significant design problems.  

     2. FULL RESPONSIBILITY

Design-Build Contractor: They are in charge of all elements of the project with in-house employees. So if anything goes wrong, you won’t have to chase down a subcontractor. You can talk to your contractor directly and get things straight.

General Contractor: A general contractor won’t have in-house employees so they will have sub-contractors. Because he is the middle-man, he is limited on moving the project along any faster than his subcontractors can handle it. Plus if you run into trouble, it can be a headache chasing the right subcontractor down without them pointing a finger to someone else.

      3. BUDGETING & PRICING

Design-Build Contractor: When you choose a design-build contractor there is excellent communication throughout the entire process. So when you tell us your budget, our in-house staff can keep you to that price, but also give you options for upgrades in menu-based pricing to keep everything clear. We also have an in-house estimator, so we can give you an exact quote and stick to it.

General Contractor: A general contractor has to work with so many subcontractors that it is nearly impossible to stick with your budget. They don’t know how everyone is going to quote them so you could be forced to write extra checks.

These 3 points make the advantages to a design-build firm obvious. And these are just 3 points we are highlighting!

We still advise everyone to do your research and see what is going to work best for them, but hiring a design-build contractor is a sure way of getting a breathtaking remodel!

KM'S TAKE ON SOLAR PANELS by Keith Moehle

Have you ever thought about solar panels for your home?

Solar_panels_on_a_roof-1.jpg

Solar panels are an excellent option for any home! Not only are you helping the environment, but you are also saving money on your electricity bill by taking advantage of amazing rebates! Who wouldn’t want to jump in and be a part of this fantastic offer? The answer is a LOT of people because it is a significant investment.

Although the benefits would outweigh the negatives of the cost for some homeowners, it’s still essential to have proper installation if you decide solar panels are right for you. If you have improper installation, this investment will end up being a costly mistake instead of saving you money in the long run!

Also, CPS provides valuable resources and partners with trusted solar panel companies for the community to work with.
