New year, new plans

Who else has spring fever??? I certainly do! We're ready to get this year started with something exciting (for us at least)! We're in the planning stages of the biggest project of our lives, building a new home...a first for us. We've done the renovation thing, starting with Jeff completely renovating a 100-year-old house while we were in our early 20's, followed by a fire damaged 50-year-old house, then a (thankfully) simple 80's ranch, and now we're ready start fresh and build something that will accommodate our current lives... busy parents & business owners.

That's where the crucial planning process comes in. I am married to the Garage Guy after all, so of course our plans include an over-sized 3-car garage with tons of storage and style. I'm not sure that Jeff would be able to sleep at night if we didn't have the coolest, most organized, and functional garage in town. I'm just staying out of his way and letting him have this one. I can't argue with a guy that knows garages like he does, he's been doing this for so long that I'd be trying to recreate the wheel with any input I'd have to offer. I'll just be happy to have a clean, organized space to park my car and mower!

On that note, we spent our morning meeting with an architect going over the design with a fine tooth comb, making changes, and perfecting the simple yet functional layout we have in mind. I can't wait to share the plans and progress with everyone as the year goes on. Until then, let's start getting our homes, garages, laundry rooms, sheds, etc. ready to be organized.

If you've got an idea and would like us to come out, measure your space, create a dimensional drawing, give us a call! We'd love to see what you have in mind and create a plan! We're currently booked through February, but would love to get a plan in place for your organization project and get you on the calendar this spring.

Looking forward to working with you on your upcoming garage project!

Garage Fitness & Storage

We're coming close to the end of January and hoping everyone is keeping their New Year's Resolutions intact. Sometimes time restrictions or family obligations stop us from getting to the gym...after we've committed to squeezing a workout in.  That's why you should have a back up plan. 

Even if you have space restrictions (as most of us do), or maybe you don't want a gym membership because it's not convenient, or maybe you just prefer to workout in the comfort of your own home. Whatever the case, you should be able to get a good workout in at home and still keep your house looking organized with just a few pieces of equipment and some minor storage adjustments. Just having equipment at home and easily accessible will make getting a workout in anytime that much easier.

I've dug up some fun storage ideas and put some pictures together to at least get some ideas flowing. We'd love to turn a portion of your home into a fun and functional fitness space! If you'd like us to come out and check out your space to get a plan together for you, just give me a call 859.240.2714 or send an email

Garage Renovation | Maineville, OH

Jeff and his team installed 21 sets of cabinets, painted the walls a bright & vibrant blue, installed a RaceDeck tile floor, and accented the walls with some gray slatwall as well as some stainless steel trim and countertops. The homeowners are still organizing their belongings and adding a few finishing touches with the decor, but it's still beautiful.
