Adding living room spaces and bathrooms to make an unfinished basement a livable part of your home…

Adding a bedroom and bathroom downstairs to house an extended family member. Sometimes as a bonus in recently-built homes, plumbing has already been roughed in, reducing cost.



These are as varied as gutting a whole house to the studs and reconfiguring everything, to lightly retouching existing rooms.

A whole house remodel often involves remodeling or even reconfiguring multiple bathrooms. Typically, the kitchen is one of the most extensive – and expensive – rooms to remodel.

Often the flooring changes during a whole house remodel. Chandler Construction Services can install prefinished hardwood floors and basic tile installation ourselves, and we are capable of managing the installation of customized flooring.

Exteriors can involve residing, replacing windows, adding decks, installing plumbing and lighting around new outdoor rooms.



We have built everything from single story to three-story houses. We are happy to work with architects and designers on your customized, one-of-a-kind project, or with purchased home plans.

We’ve built-in creative environments: on lakesides, small lots, sand dunes, and other demanding locations.

Two home builds of note: one in the Camp Buffalo development in New Buffalo. It involved incorporating split-log elements and finish details to coordinate with the homes around it. The rustic, hand-scraped pre-finished hardwood floor adds to the cabin feel of the house, much to the homeowner’s delight. This project is a good example of follow-up after project completion to answer questions, and of a continuing relationship between us and our client. 

Another home build project of note is in Union Pier on the Lake. This custom home is an intricate build combining post-and-beam construction with standard construction. Because of the location overlooking Lake Michigan, this 2,200-square-foot, two-level showpiece home project was executed without hoists and other heavy equipment.
