Tuscan Remodel

We recently had the fantastic opportunity of working with a wonderful family while remodling their entire home.  The Johnson remodel consisted of an entire kitchen design, three baths, electrical throughout, flooring throughout, extensive tile work, etc.  We began the process with the all important budget, including an extensive walkthrough with contractors who accurately provided estimates to be included in the overall budget.  The key to a successful project is starting with a budget and continuing to monitor it throughout the entire process.  After a preliminary budget had been established we continued with the next step in the design process and selected each and every material to be inlcuded in the remodel.  The budget was updated again and we were on our way to a great home remodel.  To make their dream home come true, we used a host of sub contractors such as Martin Electric, Colosseum Marble & Granite, Bonita Valley Plumbing, K.D. Cha Painting, and Hegle Tile.  These men worked hard and long to make the Johonson’s house a place that they could call home.  I was proud to be associated with them.  A big thank you from the team at Style On a Shoestring for their efforts.   We began the design process in March and on July 20th the family moved out for two weeks while we sprung into action.  We followed our timeline to the letter and in two weeks, the Johnson’s had moved back into their entirely new remodeled, Tuscan style home!
