JBDB Home Renovation Project Profile: The Schile’s

July 28, 2017 | Blog

The Schile’s home is a perfect example of how a home remodeling project can transform a house and a family’s lifestyle. With the help of the James Barton Design-Build team, the couple began envisioning how they could make better use of the space in their home. This dream eventually grew into a multi-stage home remodeling project that included updating, expanding, and transforming their home. Because of the stunning results, the Schile’s Apple Valley home was our Remodelers Showcase home during the 2017 Spring Parade of Homes.

Below are just some of the many features that were included in the Schile’s home remodeling project:
