After having purchased an Edgewater commercial office building in 2000, J.R. Graves and his crew proceeded to convert a gut job into amazingly workable and beautiful space. His vision and experience allowed us to bypass using an architect, plus J.R. came in on time and on budget! His work and ethic is such that, when redoing our home kitchen in Lakewood Balmoral in 2007, we wouldn't even consider anyone else. All to say, there's NO ONE better when it comes to residential or commercial remodeling!
R.H., Chicago (gut and remodel commercial space)

Not only did the project get finished in time, but we ended up coming in under budget. We absolutely could not have done this project without JR's leadership and partnership. He proved a talented, committed partner who was very pleasant to work with. We would highly recommend his company to anyone considering a home or business remodeling project.
J.A., Morton Grove (whole house rehab on a tight schedule)

Not only is his work impeccable, but he is a terrific problem solver and made suggestions that would help the process go more smoothly and in some instances reduce the cost. We have recommended J.R. to other friends and they too, were pleased with his work. He's wonderful to work with and a true professional.
P. C. & A. D., Chicago, (cultural center rehab)

Throughout the four month project, the workers maintained a high level of professionalism and respect for us and our home. The quality is impeccable. Through their talent and efficiency, the team turned our dream into a breathtaking reality.
D. & E., Wilmette (1926 colonial-style home rehab project)

JR took the space from a dirt floor through completion and we moved in right on schedule. Not only is JR's work top notch, but he advises his clients of the best ways (finish, financial, timeliness) to approach a job. We have recommended JR to several clients and friends, and will continue to do so.
L & S, Chicago (1920s autobody shop transformed into real estate office)

So many people have remarked positively about the work and appearance. We are very satisfied!
