'Everything is Possible' -- Whole House Remodeling by Mid-Ohio's DreamMaker Bath & Kitchen

‘Everything is Possible’ – Whole House Remodeling by Mid-Ohio’s DreamMaker Bath & Kitchen

One Mid-Ohio couple was so pleased with the remodeling experience in their Copley home, they hired Steve Miller and his DreamMaker Bath & Kitchen remodeling team to transform a second home. 

A Simple Kitchen Remodeling Project Leads to a Whole House Transformation

Nancy Ryland initially hired Steve Miller and his remodeling team to replace the kitchen cabinets in the home she and her husband, William Pepple, had shared for almost forty years. As the team go to work, however, Nancy was so pleased with their results that the project began to shift. Soon thereafter, Nancy’s vision included opening up the space between the kitchen and dining room, installing hardwood floors in the living room, remodeling a bathroom, and completely overhauling the laundry room in her Copley home.

Throughout her home’s transformation process, Nancy was thrilled by DreamMaker’s ability to handle a wide range of projects. “Steve kept saying, ‘No problem, no problem,’ and he was good to his word,” she said. “He did what he promised and it came out wonderful.”

A Second Whole House Remodeling Project Done Beautifully

Nancy was so pleased with her experience with DreamMaker Bath & Kitchen that she didn’t hesitate to hire them for a second, even bigger project when she inherited her mother’s home in Akron. Steve began by updating the kitchen, and then the remodeling projects quickly spread throughout the rest of the home. DreamMaker completely gutted and reconfigured some rooms, installed new woodwork in others, or simply applied a fresh coat of paint to the rooms that didn't need much work.

Nancy and her husband felt completely at ease leaving their home in the hands of Steve and his DreamMaker remodeling team. They had every confidence Steve would make good on his promises to complete the work, and to complete it with a high degree of professional craftsmanship. Beyond that, Nancy says she had no trouble trusting Steve and his team to work in her homes, even when Nancy or her husband couldn’t be present.

One of the best aspects of working with DreamMaker Bath & Kitchen, Nancy asserts, was the ease with which she and her husband could communicate with Steve and his remodeling team, even though she and her husband were frequently traveling for work. Steve made the projects seamless by communicating via text to alert them as issues arose or to answer whatever questions Nancy or William had along the way.

Bathroom Shower

Victorian Tub

One such issue came up when Nancy found a Victorian tub that she wanted to put in one of the bathrooms. Steve and his crew had to reconfigure where the shower would be located, re-tile, and rework the plumbing to make the bathtub fit. 

“There wasn’t enough room, but Steve took a look at a closet in there and said, ‘We can take 11 inches off the closet, and still keep some closet space,’” Nancy says. “It made such a difference in the bathroom, and I still have storage there.”

DreamMaker Bath & Kitchen Also Offers a Designer’s Touch

Beyond his ability to accomplish just about anything, Nancy says she appreciated the fact that Steve also brought resourcefulness and imagination to every project he handled. He became the wish grantor who turned her dreams into reality. 

“I had a thought that I wanted the basement to look like a lodge. We didn’t draw up any formal plans. I just talked to Steve about what I wanted and he figured it out.”

Steve engineered it so that half-depth logs were mounted on most of the walls, with one wall done in cedar to allow Nancy a flat surface for hanging pictures. DreamMaker also redesigned the bar area to fit with the lodge theme and concealed a sump pump so that it was not noticeable, but was still accessible when needed. And when Nancy mentioned she wanted outlets in the middle of the room, rather than just along the walls, Steve and his team brainstormed an idea to hollow out a log without bark to act as an electrical column that looked like a tree.

Lodge Basement

Nancy was astounded by Steve and his remodeling team’s ability to go above and beyond with any project she threw at them. “He had to step up to a whole different ball game with my mother’s house, and he proved he could perform in any arena. I would ask him to take on another project, and he would say, ‘Sure, everything’s possible.’”
