My love for remodeling began in Sweden at a very young age, working alongside my grandfather. As a young man, I moved to America to attend The University of Minnesota to study Engineering. During that time, I met my wife, and felt a calling to return to the remodeling vocation as it was something I really loved to do–Design and Build. We decided to take a step of faith and start our company: Strole & Company LLC.
I love my job because I get to work with people first hand, listening to them share about their dream project and working together to achieve that and more. I take the stewardship of the project very seriously, and our team works very hard at implementing, communicating, and executing the entire process from start to finish. Seeing our homeowner’s reaction to their finished new home, kitchen or living space is worth the entire experience.
In order to have a successful project, I have set up a process of how we work to achieve this mission, including an online task system where you’ll actually enjoy working with us on your building project:
- I plan out the project in detail with the homeowner. To eliminate miscommunication, I am meticulous about proper paperwork and notes as changes appear.
- I work closely with my architect to paint a picture for the homeowner to visualize. We use a software program with 3D models and very detailed floor plans. These illustrations are so detailed that we will even drop furniture and decorative items into the design just so you can clearly visualize and do a walk-through of your new space before it is even built. This eliminates future hiccups and problems during the project. I always say it is much easier and quicker to make changes in our 3D design than in real life. If we can make crucial changes in the planning stages, we save ourselves much unnecessary spent money and time.
- All changes and scope are communicated with all workers on our online task system. This eliminates common communication mistakes. We walk through our project several times a week to make sure each step is performed to plan and quality, and to assure the outcome is aesthetically pleasing to the eye.
- You’ll have all the details at your fingertips wherever you have web access. All your decisions and related information is displayed neatly in order. We’ll even send you automatic reminders about what’s coming up next. If you decide to splurge on a few extras, you’ll always know how much you spent, and you can securely approve those things right online. You’ll see your project taking shape. All email correspondence is kept online and in one place, by topic, where you and our team can see it: discussion about fixtures, or questions about anything along the way.
We look forward to working with you on your future project, whether restoration or new build or updating a space in or around your home. Thank you for the consideration and opportunity to help you make your dream project come true.
