Will You Need a Structural Engineer for Your Next Home Remodel?
Using the right professional for the right job is arguably one of the most important decisions you need to make when starting any project, let alone one as complex as a home remodel. Deciding to use an architect or interior designer is usually fairly straightforward while working with a structural engineer is often not considered. Depending on your remodeling needs, a highly skilled structural engineer could make all the difference. Let’s explore the rationale for bringing one into your remodeling project, describe exactly what they do, and define the specific types of projects where they’re needed.

These homeowners reached out to Sweeney Design Remodel, looking to update their kitchen, powder room, and mudroom.

Read the details behind this project and see its remarkable before and after transformation.
Let the Sunshine In with Marvin Windows
Quality windows are important for keeping warm in your home when it is cold outside, and warm air out in higher temperatures. Windows also usher in sunlight, fresh air, and our connection to the natural world which can improve any mood.

We especially like Marvin Windows, working with our local partner Window Design Center. They help our clients choose the perfect windows that are energy efficient, high quality, and of course, beautiful.
