It’s summertime, and that means fun in the sun with your kids, parties on the back patio with friends and neighbors, and long, sunny days to enjoy time with the people you love. Both those long days are also great for something else: home improvement projects! That’s why summertime is the ideal time to make upgrades to your home and address any home repair issues you’ve been putting off during the cold winter months.


At The Construction Group in Maplewood, our experienced remodeling contractors can knock out a simple carpentry project in just a few short days. In this post, we’ll discuss a few simple summer carpentry projects that can add value to your home.


1.      Create a Built-In to Add Storage

Older homes are coveted for their charm and character. But people tend to have more belongings than they used to, and older homes tend to be short on storage space and closets. Creating a built-in is a beautiful way to add storage to any home. It can also provide the perfect place to store your collection of books, pottery, records, or other valued treasures.


2.      Upgrade Your Bathroom Vanity

Adding a bathroom vanity is one of the fastest ways to completely change the look of your master bathroom. A bathroom vanity can be an appealing place to lounge as you prepare for a busy day or a night out on the town. We can replace an outdated vanity or construct a new one based on your specifications. It’s also an ideal time to add to your bathroom storage so you have a perfect place for all of your toiletries and cosmetics.


3.      Build an Entertainment Center

An entertainment center can instantly upgrade your home theater. Rather than piling your Roku and video game console onto a table or shelf, a custom-built entertainment center gives you a place to keep everything neatly displayed. We can also customize your storage options to display and store your speakers, game discs, and more.


4.      Add a Beautiful Mantle to Your Fireplace

A hearth is a warm and welcoming space in any Minnesota home during the winter months. The only thing more welcoming than a fire in the fireplace is a holiday mantle decked out in evergreens during the holidays. We can create a new mantle to provide a focal point above your heart to your specifications. This simple project adds a timeless elegance to your living room and creates a welcome space to display art and design vignettes.
