A design-build firm like Talmadge Construction is inherently multifaceted, deploying as we do a diverse range of skills, talents, and expertise. From architects and engineers to tradespeople and craftsmen, each plays a crucial role in realizing a homeowner’s vision.

However, it is the specialized skills – the kind that Schmitz Woodworks brings to the table – that really take a home transformation to an entirely new level of excellence.

It involves a deep understanding of materials, an appreciation of different styles, and the ability to foresee how each piece fits into the larger puzzle of an often complicated project. This expertise is invaluable in a design-build context, such as the collaboration between Talmadge Construction and Schmitz Woodworks.

A History of Excellence

The story began in 2007 when Schmitz Woodworks and Talmadge Construction recognized their mutual commitment to delivering unparalleled quality in residential remodeling. Both companies brought unique strengths to the table – Schmitz Woodworks, renowned for its exquisite woodworking and craftsmanship, and Talmadge Construction, celebrated for its comprehensive construction expertise.

Over the years, this dynamic partnership has successfully transformed countless homes, combining the timeless elegance of Schmitz Woodworks’ custom woodwork with the innovative and practical solutions offered by Talmadge Construction. Their collaborative projects have consistently exceeded expectations, from kitchen and bathroom renovations to whole-house remodels, creating spaces that seamlessly blend functionality with aesthetic appeal.

Notable Collaborations

Modern Ranch-Style Whole House Remodel in Aptos, CA

One of the standout projects that exemplify the collaborative benefits of Schmitz Woodworks and Talmadge Construction is the comprehensive transformation of a modern ranch-style residence in Aptos, CA. This project was not just a renovation but a reinvention of the home’s core.

The residence was well-structured but was showing its age, so we made significant changes to enhance connectivity, aesthetics, and functionality. The main challenge was to create a seamless flow between the kitchen and living room, which we achieved by redesigning the space layout and adjusting floor heights. The kitchen now boasts a vibrant blue island and elegant white semi-custom cabinets, creating a dynamic and engaging environment.

Upstairs, the transformation continued with the expansion of the primary suite. This included a luxurious bathroom with double sinks, a larger shower, and a spacious walk-in closet. The remodel extended to every facet of the house, achieving a harmonious blend of modern elegance and timeless functionality.

The talented experts at Schmitz Woodworks were on hand to ensure all custom cabinetry and other specialist features were designed and implemented to exceed all expectations. The results delighted the homeowners, who loved the finished design and our collaborative team’s professionalism throughout the remodeling process.
