How to Get Started with a Bathroom Remodel

Our bathrooms should be our sanctuaries, and if you are no longer finding that in your bathroom, it may be time to remodel! It all starts with your dream, our team, and a phone call. Our design-build team will listen to your ideas, expectations, and current bathroom situation, then walk you through each step of our 
design-build process.

At Compelling Homes, our dedicated in-house team will help you plan every last detail, help you pick out the best materials and finishes, and answer any questions you may have along the way. We're in this with you, and there is no such thing as an idea too small or too extravagant. 

So what do you say, are you ready to create your own oasis?

What Our Clients Think

We love Rusty and the Compelling Homes team. We first worked with them to turn an unfinished basement into a family area, bar, workout room. We had some pretty complex requests but they turned our unfinished basement into a fabulous rustic hangout space. Rusty has great ideas and is has an eye for details. They just completed an addition over our garage and it turned out awesome inside and out. We can not wait to work with them again on a new master bath and kitchen. I would never go anywhere else. They deliver what they promise and more. They take time to get to know you and make sure your personality shows up in the final product. Love them!!

What Our Clients Think

I cannot say enough good things about Compelling Homes. We are nearly complete with a 4th remodel job using this fine company and the service just keeps getting better. The owner (Rusty Green) will go to any length to keep his customers informed, satisfied and happy. He is a real pro at what he does! Even more, he is a man of the highest values and integrity.

Use this company for your next remodel - big or small. They will not disappoint.

Chad Kitchen | Compelling Homes

What Our Clients Think

The Compelling Homes team designed an amazing remodel for our entire first floor. The attention to detail created an awesome finished product that we absolutely love. We are not the creative types, but when the team came back with their ideas for the space we were blown away and now we have a more functional space that is worth every penny. We always recommend them to any of our friends thinking about starting a remodel project because we know the CH team will make sure that every detail is perfect. Other positives is that were open and honest with the cost and timeline so there were no surprises along the way and we felt fully informed about the entire process. Everyone on the team was excellent to work with and we would definitely use them again.

Ron Kitchen | Compelling Homes

What Our Clients Think

The Compelling Homes team is second to none. Many companies talk about customer service and looking at things from a customer's perspective, but few follow through — the entire team from the owner on down lives it. In addition, their ability to adapt and deliver is extraordinary. Add in the talented people they bring in to complete all aspects of the construction and remodel project, and we couldn’t be more happy with the results.
