Witt Construction is uniquely qualified for home remodeling and renovations, adding new and exciting living space to existing homes, and seamlessly guiding homeowners through the design / build process. Today’s trend for many is to stay their neighborhoods in order to maintain friendships, keep children in their school, and renovate limited floor plans with creative new living spaces.
State-of-the-art kitchens are at the top of the list of home improvements, followed by spacious new family living spaces featuring tall ceilings and custom millwork. Luxurious master suites with lavish baths and abundant closets are often added, as well as home offices, and entertainment rooms.
