  • An updated look and enhanced functionality to the back bar and behind the front counter.

  • Installation of the kegerator.
  • Downsizing of the pass-through window from the kitchen to the front counter area.

Our Emergency Renovation Solutions

We tackled these requests by:

  • Providing the customer with several options on materials and a rough layout to ensure our plan aligned with their goals.
  • Ensuring all approved materials were ordered and received before confirming renovation dates to allow for a quick turnaround once we began working.
  • Using Xactimate, PSA, Encircle, and Microsoft Project to visualize and complete the project with efficiency.
