They even considering buying another home in Hidden Springs but that would mean they would have to sell their existing home.

Dave and Shelley Baldiga needed more living space – a place for their growing boys to hang-out and a guest room for company. There was no room on their lot to expand the footprint of their home. The only option was to go up. But their home was already two stories. They wondered if they could somehow convert their attic space to living space. They consulted a couple of remodeling companies who said it couldn’t be done without removing the existing trussed roof and re-framing it. Then they called us.

The Fanter’s have lived in their home since 2000. It was Hidden Springs Buildng Company’s Parade Home that year. The countertops and backsplash were dark brown granite tile which was extremely popular in 2000. The Kitchen featured a large island – approximately 7′ x 7′. It was fine while the Fanter kid’s were small. But it became a problem as they got older. See why and how we solved the problem.
