Feature Project

Kitchen & Interior Remodel

Kitchen & Interior Remodel

This client had a desire to "get more" out of their Kitchen and adjacent sun room & living room without adding more square footage to their house. The kitchen was dated and the living and sun rooms were underutilized. Eric in collaboration with Topnotch Design Studio worked on a design layout that would increase the functionality of all three rooms by better utilizing the space and creating better traffic flow between the rooms. A visually more expansive space was achieved by increasing the size of the openings between rooms, exposing some great architectural details and helping to flood the new space with light.

This project began in the kitchen but extended to a large portion of the first floor to include an upgrade in flooring, storage, moldings & trim, custom built-ins and some impressive detailing on the doorways and stair finishes.

Here is what the client had to say about their finished project:

Custom Stair rail detail
Custom stair detail
"It was my good fortune to have discovered Thorson after over hearing another "soccer mom" describing in great detail her recent renovation. She spoke so highly of Eric Thorson and his business.... Specifically how meticulous and neat they were..... Certainly the "neat" caught my attention! That, however only begins to describe just how wonderful the Thorson Team is.
They are dependable, hard working, professional, honest and so very talented.... The result ~ Our lovely but tired home transformed into paradise! I am most grateful to Eric for his planning, patience and good nature! We would highly recommend Thorson Restoration and Construction."

Velux Solar Powered Skylight

The new Solar powered skylight by Velux was one of many products we had the pleasure of learning about at our latest visit to the JLC Live industry trade show.

The skylight caught our attention... and here's why:

  • Remote controlled solar powered skylight requires no wiring, which makes for easy and cost effective installation.
  • The solar panel will work on cloudy days and with indirect light. It does not have to be exposed to direct sunlight to function.
  • With the integrated rain sensor the solar powered skylight will close automatically, in case of inclement weather.
  • 10 year "No leak" warranty
  • 30% Tax Credit available for product & installation
  • Another 30% tax credit available with the purchase of the integral solar blinds available for the skylight in a variety of colors.

Bob Morrissey Celebrates 10 Years with us!

Congratulations to Lead carpenter Bob Morrissey on his 10th year with the company!
Ask any of our clients for a list of their favorite parts of the remodeling process and Bob Morrissey's name usually appears somewhere on that list and that is no surprise. Owners Eric & Stacy Thorson had this to say about Bob and his time with the company:

"We've appreciated the dedication and loyalty Bob has shown here at Thorson over the past ten years. We're always confident in Bob's ability to execute a project with the company's high quality standards in view. We feel that he is a master at his craft and excels as a leader who knows the value of sharing his knowledge with all members of the team. Bob's hard work ethic and determination to "get the job done" accurately and smoothly continues to be of great value to us each and every day and it is very evident that our clients highly value him as well. We feel very fortunate to have had Bob as a vital part of our team for the past decade!"
