We have over 35 years of combined experience working in the home improvement & design industry. Living in Atlanta, Jacksonville, and Orlando we have designed and installed kitchens and baths across the southeast. Justin has even traveled as far as California to the west, Boston to the north, and the Virgin Islands to the south to complete renovation work! We know how to incorporate big city design with small town charm and we're looking forward to seeing how we might be able to help you transform your space!

"Justin and Kylie brought to the table with my latest project. I bought a building. I wanted to make the vacant 2nd floor into apartments and the 1st floor into a cafe. It took most of 2019 to complete.

While they have a wide range of talents, these 2 normally focus on redesigning and remodeling bathrooms and kitchens. They did much more than that for this project.

Kylie designed 2 amazing apartments in the 2nd floor space that had been vacant for over 50 years. Each apartment, unique, and blending the historic aspects of the building with modern finishes to make chic spaces that I LOVE. Then, she redesigned a real estate office into a great little coffee shop. The design details she brought to these spaces (tile, counter tops, wallpaper,etc.) are the ones people comment on the most.

All I can say about Justin is that he is a Wizard. Super talented. He's kind of a one man band - demo, framing, finish work, plumbing, electric. If he doesn't know how to do it, he'll figure it out. In this project, there was very little he didn't have a hand in. Yes, he did the finish work in the kitchens and bathrooms - cabinets, tile, glass shower enclosure, etc. But he also did all of the framing, installed doors, molding, wrangled subcontractors, hung from the rafters helping with the difficult bits of sheet rocking a 24' tall firewall, and miraculously made a forklift appear when it was needed most. I'm sure I left several big things out here.

Both so talented, and care so much about the quality of their work. I hope I have the opportunity to do more projects with them in the future."

-Rob Hammatt,  Abilene KS

"Creative. Resourceful. Honest. We needed a serious overhaul in our master bathroom as it was falling apart and the layout did not work well. But we were at a standstill on the design since we just couldn't get a new layout to pencil out. Justin and Kylie "cracked the code" by putting the shower in an unexpected (yet awesome!) location which opened up the whole plan.

We appreciated how they listened to our design tastes and helped us process through the decisions to achieve the final look and function we wanted. Due to unforeseen challenges (it's a remodel!) the project took them a little longer than they expected but they didn't abandon it or leave anything unfinished.

Then, a couple months after our bathroom was complete, we ran into an issue with a tile in the new shower. So we called and they promptly worked us into their busy schedule and made the issue right (actually even better than the original). Start to finish, they made the whole design and remodeling process as painless as possible for us. We are thoroughly enjoying our beautiful master bathroom!"

-Charity Bathurst, Abilene KS

"From being flexible and accommodating to changes we had in the design to going beyond what a normal contractor would do. Kylie and Justin went above and beyond our expectations

While I was out of town Justin handled not only unforeseen complications due to the age of my house but little things like bringing in my mail or taking out the trash while I was gone. If you are looking for a detail oriented team that puts the project first than I recommend Wizard of Odz and Ends."
