     Rehabbing started as a hobby after I purchased my first home when I was 24 years old. My husband was against remodeling it because he didn't want to be part of a do-it-yourself project of that magnitude. So, my Mom flew out to help me get started. She taught me to tear out a wall oven, cabinets, sheetrock, and 2x4's. Once I got over that fear of demolishing my kitchen, I forced myself to learn how to rebuild a new one. After four years of woodshop in high school, and watching my machinist father deal with electrical wiring, plumbing, and many different engineering projects, I knew my vision was feasible. I also knew that my Mom, nicknamed MacGyver, could figure out how to solve any construction problem I may encounter with her ingenuity and aplomb. After way too much consternation on behalf of my husband, our project was nearly complete before Mom left town. All we had left to do was purchase a piece of granite for the top of the new kitchen island. That's where I learned you don't have to pay full retail for anything. I found a supplier who had a leftover piece of granite that no one wanted because it had a large visible vein running through it.


     Even back then, I had a deep appreciation for things and people others may view as "flawed". I see the beauty in uniqueness and scars acquired through struggle. That piece of granite was a symbol of that belief, so I proudly installed it in my kitchen at 95% less cost than the going rate.

     Since then, TheUpsideChicago partner, a licensed and bonded contractor, and I have remodeled quite a few of our own homes/buildings and have been sought after to consult and remodel many others. We enjoy coming up with solutions that will have the biggest payback in terms of beautification, use, maintenance, and net profit when sold. We have worked with many homeowners to remodel and stage their properties to enhance them to sell quicker and for more than expected. We've helped realtors and building managers make minor adjustments to their properties in order to get the best bang for the buck. It's not working, it's fun for us.

We would love the opportunity to help you get more out of your property.
