Timber Creek Home Remodel in Libertyville

Over the course of 2 years and in 2 separate phases, our team at BDS had the pleasure of working on the Timber Creek Remodel in Libertyville. We were able to accomplish an extensive remodel of the primary bedroom suite, hall bath, and stairs, and then later took on the complete remodel of the kitchen, mudroom, and floors. It was a beautiful transformation for an incredible family! With a home that had become outdated and lacking in modern conveniences, this busy family partnered with our team and the results turned out stunning!
