Download – EPISODE #26 Reno Trends: Room by Room

Recognizing not everyone has the budget or need to renovate their entire home, sharing realistic budgets, and creative design solutions are two topics close to the hearts of Laura Grist Interior Design and Dan Klassen of Jedan Brothers Contracting as they work with homeowners to re-invent livable spaces. Listen in as co-hosts Mike and Jennifer-Lee of Measure Twice, Cut Once explore partial home renovations, room by room. HAVANofficial #MeasureTwiceCutOnce #Podcast

‘There is no such thing as a design emergency because we make sure that things are very well organized and ready for the renovation. We do a lot of back work before the renovation starts. I look at people’s houses and I see what’s going to go best with their personal design style. I’m not there to put in my style, I’m putting in their style at an elevated kind of place so that they can enjoy it on their terms.’ Laura Grist, Laura Grist Interior Design

‘We do some simple math on a first phone call and very quickly the homeowner realizes what things can cost.’ Dan Klassen, Jedan Brothers Contracting
