The Modern McKinley Project
Welcome to the #ModernMcKinley! What a great project from start to finish. We started off here just doing a kitchen renovation and it quickly escalated to most of the first floor. We reconfigured their kitchen, included an island with seating, opened up the wall into the dining and living areas, tiled and painted their mudroom, created a faux fireplace with custom red oak shelving, and more! Swipe through the photos for some behind the scenes and before shots of this project! Make sure you follow @critlycontracting and @hpm_designs on Instagram for more projects like this!
Great Room Restoration
This Great Room Restoration project was originally an art studio back in 1879! We completely restored these historic beams, added new paneled inserts and trimmed out the entire space. It was certainly challenging working on scaffolds most of the day, but the end result was absolutely worth it. We completed the space with this wagon wheel center chandelier for some added charm and character. Projects like this are our favorite ones due to the history behind the homes.
House On Cleveland
This first floor project was so awesome to see come together and was one of our first projects working with Hannah Mainiero from HPM Designs. We created such a beautiful layout here which included opening up some walls in order to add a large island, new half bath, and coffee/wine bar area. We also refinished the entire first floor with hardwood and weaved in pieces that needed to be replaced for a seamless design. This project is complete with new windows and a large sliding door off of the dining room to this outdoor deck perfect for entertaining. You can see before photos down below!

Stager Street: Complete Reno
Stager Street renovation was a huge accomplishment for Critly Contracting. This home meant a lot to my wife and I, as it was our first home together. We decided to let Critly take over and create this newly built home for a deserving couple. We loved creating this open floor concept and we are so happy with the turn out! Shoutout to Katie Miedler and the whole Ambiance Decorators team for staging this home and putting it on the market!
Rebel Hair Studio
This project was a fun one because my beautiful wife decided to make her dreams a reality. She bought a hair studio and, of course, Critly came in to revamp it! We loved creating the space she envisioned with all fresh paint, moldings, custom shelving, and more.
This Claremont home sat so pretty on its own, but of course needed some sprucing up before these homeowners felt that it was their dream home. We at Critly love a project like this because restoring an older home gives us a chance to enhance the original beauty of it. Check it out!

Eileen Bedroom Restoration
Eileen's bedroom had major cracks in the original plaster walls dating back to the early 20th century. We coated a level 5 spackle finish on all the walls and ceiling to give us a brand new plaster look, refinished the original hardwood floors, and added oil rubbed bronze accenting to really make things pop. We kept her current moldings in place but added more detailed moldings to give us a high end classical feel.
