"May your home always be too small to hold all of your friends.”

This tiled inscription in Rick and Karen Schaeffer's new rec room describes their home's original state. The Schaeffer's, hosts to large gatherings (200 guests at times!), needed our help.

"Jerry Liu asked about our lifestyle—how we entertain,” says Rick. "We have family from the Midwest who stay for a week, so bathroom space is at a premium.” We helped the Schaeffers add a bathroom and closet, rearrange existing closets, and remodel an old bathroom, adding handicapped accessibility. The dining room was expanded, and space was freed up in the rec room by removing a wall and building enclosed outdoor stairs.

"DG Liu gets high marks for kindness,” says Rick. "If the crew says they’ll be there at 7:00, that's when they knock on the door. They do a great job of cleaning up. And I love their flexibility. As you're doing renovations, you find you change your mind about things. DG Liu was happy to work with me.” "May your home always be too small to hold all of your friends.”
