Over the Oak

How Outdated Kitchen Cabinets Inspired a Life-Changing Whole-Home Remodel

Receiving the invitation into a Client’s home is a privilege and an honor we never take lightly. It requires trust, clear communication, and a thoughtful plan. We are occupying your home for a sizeable stretch of time and dealing with construction can be an inconvenience. We are committed to always make you feel comfortable with the process, and in the end, exceed your expectations for what you envisioned for your home. The most rewarding part of what we do is seeing the joy your new space brings to you and your family.

There may be no better way to illustrate what it is like when you choose to work with McDonald Remodeling than to share a story of a recently completed project. Please enjoy this whole-home transformation in Eden Prairie, Minnesota

About the Home

Location: Eden Prairie

Built: 1989

Sq Ft: 4,000 +/-

Style: Contemporary

Rooms Remodeled: All

This family enjoys entertaining, traveling, and being active. Their children are out of the house and it was time to remodel their home in a way that reflects this chapter in their lives. It all started with the kitchen…

“Todd toured the home we built in 1989 and listened to the things we didn’t like about it. He followed up with a visit a couple of weeks later and presented a plan that exceeded our expectations. Todd’s experience and knowledge helped us look at the bigger picture. Our original thought was to simply reface the kitchen cabinets, which really did not address our long-term goals. The project ultimately grew to a whole house remodel, including the deck. The only thing untouched is the garage. We now have a home we could never have envisioned…It is because of Todd’s professionalism, knowledge and creativity that we signed up with McDonald Remodeling.”

“We call our house “Susan’s house.” Susan gets all the credit for the design finishes and aesthetics. All we really told her was we were “over the oak.” We visited your office a few times to review the various selections of cabinets, flooring, tile etc. that Susan had chosen. Susan also did some pre-selections at Ferguson and Creative Lighting. The whole process was so easy because she knew our tastes. We loved everything she picked – she is phenomenal.”

“We couldn’t have asked for a better project manager. Kevin kept us informed, explained things to us and always answered our questions. He took action on any issues and provided great updates. We are so impressed with the schedule that was given to us and how Kevin managed exactly to that schedule….amazing. Most of all, we miss having Kevin around here.”

We feel so fortunate to have found McDonald Remodeling and the people we had the pleasure to work with… we are in awe of the skill and craftsmanship of your employees and sub-contractors. Without exception, every one of them was very happy to work for your company. Your subs that also work with other companies told us McDonald Remodeling was the best and did it right. We certainly agree!

To say we are 100% satisfied seems inadequate – we are absolutely thrilled with the entire process! We are anxious to share this beautiful home with our friends, family and neighbors. Not just because it’s our home, but this beautiful work should be shared. We are so happy with our good fortune that led us to McDonald Remodeling. Thank you for giving us Todd, Kevin, Susan and the others involved on this project. It has been an absolutely incredible experience! We only wish we had more projects to do!
