I would highly recommend Steve Peskie to homeowners looking for a major remodel project. After experiencing significant water damage, we were forced/had the opportunity to do a major remodel. Instead of putting our Elkhart Lake cottage back together in exactly the same way, we decided to create a new, modern space that still evoked some rustic qualities. Our builder directed us to Steve.

Steve is warm, thoughtful and deeply dedicated to his craft. He is very creative and has tremendous attention to detail. He settles for nothing short of the best. And if you desire, he will also lead you out of your comfort zone. My wife and I, left to our own devices, would have stuck to a relatively conservative approach to a contemporary remodel. Steve listened carefully to us, to our likes and dislikes, and was able to show us design concepts that we would have never thought of. And we LOVE the result.

A great example is our fireplace. I really wanted to incorporate stacked stone into the new fireplace and mantel. I would have simply wrapped the whole structure in stacked stone and been happy. But not Steve. He introduced us to board formed concrete and ended up designing a fireplace that incorporated board formed concrete, stacked stone, black granite from our pre-existing kitchen that got torn apart, and a distressed ash mantel beam. It is simply stunning -- and it's truly one of a kind.

I wouldn't hesitate to hire Steve again for the next project.
