“Are you ready?”

The couple nods furiously while nervously squeezing each other’s hands. They stare in expectation at the designer in whom they’ve trusted to transform their house from drab and impractical to the fabulous home of their dreams. They face the direction of their once too-small, poorly laid out residence, hoping that the dramatic reveal will showcase the abode they’ve dreamt of for so long.

The host finally says the words they’ve been anticipating for months: “OK, then – open your eyes!”

There’s something so satisfying about seeing a project – especially any home-related project – go from start to finish, all neatly wrapped in an hour-long cycle. Yet, if there’s anything we’ve learned from a few decades of reality TV, it’s that reality plays a very small role in many of those shows. Still, home-renovation programs do contain at least one nugget of truth: In the right hands, the right changes create a wow factor that is 100 percent authentic.

With Malcarne Contracting, you actually can take your home from “need to move now” to “I can’t believe I didn’t do this sooner” with very little stress – and absolutely no commercial interruptions.

Same community, new quarters

Let’s face it: Moving is no fun. Just the thought of a sea of boxes staring at you, waiting to be filled and stored, is enough to make most people perish the thought. And moving isn’t all about the structure: Your friendly neighbors, great school district, proximity to frequented shops – these are all things you can’t pack in a POD and move with you.

Before you speed-dial a realtor, now is the perfect time to give Malcarne a call. Love the open floor plans that make so much sense, with room to entertain and clear sight-lines to keep an eye on your little ones? Desperate for an addition to accommodate your growing family? Ready for an update to your tight kitchen or ancient bathroom? Instead of calling it quits with a home that just isn’t working, now is the perfect time for Malcarne to create that one-of-a-kind transformation, making your house the one that makes sense for years to come.

Old problems, new solutions

It’s likely you and your current home have a history, if you’ve lived there for any length of time. The latest model may seem like the answer, but, with the expense of starting over on a mortgage, paying closing costs, and the fact that a different house also comes with its own imperfections, a new home may simply just mean a fresh set of problems – ones you just don’t see yet.

In this type of relationship, it’s actually helpful to keep a record of faults that have been driving you crazy for years: that damp, unused basement, the lack of a second bathroom, the drafty third floor, or boxy, closed-up floor plan. Then bring us your list: After our job is done, our most-heard response is “Why didn’t I do this sooner?”

We may not have a full-fledged camera crew on staff, but we do have all the professionals to completely transform your home to television makeover-show standards. It’s a piece of TV magic that can actually be reality – no cable contract necessary.
