When I purchased my new home in Brookland, I hired Keil Construction initially just to replace the kitchen. The kitchen replacement was a full tear out and involved removing the wall separating the kitchen and the dining room, leveling the floor and ceiling, moving the sink and stove, closing the existing exterior door out of the kitchen, and installing a new double door to the back deck from the dining room. Once we began the kitchen changes, it became clear that the whole house needed extensive improvements literally from top to bottom. These changes included a new roof, new central air conditioning, floor sanding throughout, a new master bathroom, a new concrete slab in the basement with perimeter drain, and a new paint job throughout. The unforeseen conditions put a strain on my budget. Keil Construction was sensitive to these changes and provided great value by using salvage items and creative solutions throughout the project. In addition, Jeff Keil provided creative insights that gave my project a unique style that I truly love. He built a beautiful custom vanity and salvage wood cabinet for my bathroom to my specifications. He made some of the cabinets in my kitchen, using salvage windows and doors. The open shelves he made using old floor joists give me the rustic charm I was looking for. He donated an old tin ceiling from another project for my kitchen. Another benefit of using Keil Construction is that they not only are willing to work with you to implement your creative ideas, but they welcome the challenge. Many contractors out there look for the easiest solution. I had a salvage farm sink that I wanted to include in my kitchen design. Other contractors told me it was too difficult, but Jeff figured out a way to incorporate the sink into my design, having a carpenter build a custom cabinet to house the sink. It was his idea to use my antique license plate collection about the face of the kitchen bulkhead, and this final touch is very charming and enhances the warmth of my kitchen. l would highly recommend Keil Construction to any homeowner interested in creating a home with personality and interest, without sacrificing quality.
