The TOUR of Remodeled Homes is produced by the Milwaukee/NARI Home Improvement Council, Inc., and sponsored by Kohler Co., First Supply, a leading Kohler wholesale distributor, VerHalen, The Pella Window Store, and Hallmark Building Supplies, Inc. The event will allow attendees to view 21 recently completed remodeling and home improvement projects from Milwaukee/NARI contractors at homes throughout southeastern Wisconsin.

The TOUR of Remodeled Homes will feature the following renovation project in Greendale:

• J&J Contractors I: Interior and Exterior Whole House Remodel • 7069 Darnell Lane
This walk-out ranch home received a complete interior and exterior remodel, with all work completed in a three-month period. All new roof decking with ice and water barrier and ridge vents complete the waterproofing. There is new attic insulation, gutters, downspouts, soffit, fascia, and new foam-backed vinyl siding. The interior features an open living space, as existing trusses on 60% of the home were removed and new cathedral ceiling trusses installed with a tray ceiling in the living room. In addition to new light fixtures throughout, new windows and entry doors were added, and the drywall features an orange peel finish. Pre-finished wood flooring was installed throughout the first floor, plus base, shoe trim, and two-paneled arch top interior doors were added. A new gas fireplace with tile surround and a mantel with custom legs were added to the main living room. In the kitchen, custom cabinetry with a painted glaze finish and rope detailing was installed, along with granite countertops and tile backsplash. The renovated bathroom features custom cabinetry with granite countertops, a walk-in shower, and new fixtures.

An added attraction for the 2014 TOUR of Remodeled Homes is an opportunity to win a 2.5 bath and kitchen Kohler Alteo faucet package in chrome polish valued at more than $1,000. Patrons that visit at least six of the project locations will be eligible to register to win the prize package.
