Focused Remodeling did an outstanding job remodeling my kitchen and dining room. Eric is a great communicator, a master craftsman, and extremely thoughtful and detail oriented. Eric has a unique understanding of and respect for classic/older homes, and has the skills to bring rooms up to date without compromising the original character. My remodel was on time and within budget, and I couldn’t be more pleased with the end product. I would highly recommend Focused Remodeling to anyone looking to improve their home.


The Difference is in the Details

It was a pleasure to work with Eric on two remodeling projects in our 40-year old home.  The first was a kitchen remodel for which Eric was the only one of three bids who was willing to meet our exact specifications and price requirements.  His communication, follow-through and attention to detail are incomparable.  We relied on his expertise and truthful opinion to walk us through each step of the process.  The second project was a bathroom/bar remodel and we went straight to Eric — no other bids wanted.  The difference really is in the details and Eric’s integrity and project management skills are evident from the start.  He has a great rapport with his sub-contractors, who were also wonderful to work with.

We highly recommend Eric and Focused Remodeling.  We couldn’t be happier with the outcome of our two projects and look forward to working with him on a third remodel in the future.  Thanks, Eric!

Reliable and Talented

Focused Remodeling has been an integral part of restoring our Highland Park home to a state of true beauty and functionality.  From repairing and replacing trim around the windows on the exterior of our house to creating a beautiful master bathroom that looks to be original to this late 20s home to helping us with layout, design and execution of a modern basement, Eric has been attentive to our needs and a reliable and talented craftsman.  We recommend him time and again to friends, neighbors, family and colleagues.

Friendly & Competent

We hired Focused Remodeling to do an entire remodel of the kitchen in our 1924 St. Paul house. We interviewed several contractors and were impressed by the references Eric provided, and it turned out those references were accurate. Eric and his subcontractors were friendly, extremely competent, showed up on time, and cleaned after they worked. Eric also was quick to communicate any changes or to respond to questions. We had an architect working on the project and the two of them were able to coordinate every step of the process and navigate around any challenges our old house presented. In the end, we have a beautiful and completely functional kitchen. I would not hesitate to recommend Focused Remodeling or to hire them again.
