     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, I have remodeled lots of homes and buildings. I enjoy coming up with solutions that deliver the highest value and biggest payback in terms of style, functionality, maintenance, and good vibes for the price. Not only I help you enhance your home so that it benefits your life, what I can do will increase the value of your home. The Upside Chicago can remodel kitchens, bathrooms, alter room layouts, build curb appeal, beautify outdoor spaces, decorate and stage your home.

     I focus on creating environments that reflect the homeowner's values and sensibilities and have a feel-good vibe. I'm sure you will appreciate the results.

     I take pride in delivering high-quality work at exceptional prices and hope to have an opportunity to work with you to maximize your property's potential.

Your Home Reimagined

We will help you get more enjoyment from your home by finding practical ways to change the layout, remodel or refresh kitchens and baths,

create inviting outdoor spaces,

alter the decor, and enhance the feel of your home.

If you're trying to sell your home

we may partner with you by covering the improvement costs

so you can make more money from the sale of your home.

If it makes sense for both of us, you won't pay a penny until closing.

We will split the upside profit above and beyond the original asking price and the cost of the remodel and staging investment made.

If you just want our advice and tools, not a partner in profits,

then that may cost a bit, but studies prove it will be worth it.

If you're interested in discussing your home's potential, whether you want to live in or sell it, say hello.  We look forward to speaking with you.
