To Do list

     We all have a “To Do” list of things that need to be done for maintenance or repairs around our home.  Finding the time to do them is a challenge.  Check Total Home is here to help.  Let us bring our expertise to you.  The list can be short or long, simple or in-depth.  Even the small stuff is important and deserves attention. A lot of what we do starts with a list of small list. We will take on the small tasks with as much enthusiasm as we would the bigger projects. It all needs to be done.

   I keep a “To Do” list on my phone and add things to it as I think of them. You can have a Check Total Home list on your phone and then send it to us when you are ready to get things “Checked” off.  

   We live in and proudly serve the Carroll County area and have plenty of references available upon request.

Bathroom remodel

 

We can do this for you!

This bathroom really got a complete makeover. We kept the 400 lb. cast iron tub. It involved taking out a wall in order to open up the space. The accent wall is a tongue & groove pine that was stained to match the floors in the house. The vanity was re-purposed from an antique chest of drawers. We cut the marble top in order to install the sink. Two of the drawers had to be modified in order to get the plumbing tied in. The finished bathroom is a major improvement to the home.
