Project Testimonials

Dan Bawden, Legal Eagle construction has just about completed a partial kitchen remodeling job. The whole team was very professional and the work is first rate. I would highly recommend Legal Eagle to anyone seeking remodeling work.

Legal Eagle built a reno of our Master Bath. The crew did a terrific job, leading us to recommend them several times since. Suggestions were offered on how to get the most bang for our buck, and how to revise the design to accommodate us as we get older.

Dan did remolding work on our bathroom. Excellent service and workmanship! Finished the job ahead of schedule and there were no extra charges. Very professional.

Dan's Funk Chart - What Happens to Your Emotions During a Home Remodel

Renovating your home is a lot like riding a roller coaster. In our more than 40 years of business, we've found that the emotions of the homeowners, their kids, and even Fido rise and fall at fairly predictable moments. Even the architect can experience a "funk" at certain times in the process.

So we assembled this helpful (albeit unscientific) graph to prepare you for when you can expect to need a tissue and when you'll want to put on the party hat.

Aging-in-Place and Universal Design

Legal Eagle Contractors are industry leaders of forward-thinking building methods that ensure your home is the former, not the latter.
