A Note From Our Lead Designer…

Renovations by Hearth + Home is expert at helping create forever homes.  This client’s curbless ensuite shower is a perfect example.  By eliminating the shower curb, floor tile flows seamlessly from outside to inside the shower without having to step up and over a curb.  For even greater accessibility, our clients also incorporated two corner glass doors.  Details like these – and our ability to provide them – will allow our clients to enjoy their home forever.  Dana George


A Note From Our Construction Manager

Our goal for the outdoor living space was to create a natural extension of the interior’s farmhouse character and charm.  I think we accomplished the goal with rustic-look composite decking, simple white metal columns and red metal roof.  This traditional wraparound porch gives the homeowners an exceptional view of their property and beyond.   Damian Fauth


A Note From Our CEO

One of our greatest rewards is helping clients realize the hard-to-see potential of their spaces.  Then, we thrive on creating that “aha” moment when the vision becomes reality.  Jason Meyer
