Remodeling a home can be stressful due to the disruptions to everyday life. But an unplanned remodel, often due to a traumatic event causing damage to a home, can be even more demanding.  

Alison Turner of Bob Turner Construction recently restored a Celina family’s home with their unplanned renovation. The homeowners experienced significant damage from a cracked refrigerator water filter flooding the entire downstairs kitchen, living, and dining room. They contacted Alison Turner to fix the destruction, but also “make lemonade out of lemons” from this unexpected remodel. “At that point, we did a complete rebuild and decided to include a few upgrades to the entire house in the process,” Turner notes.

The modern farmhouse home is a unique property that boasts one “great room” which combines the kitchen, living, and dining rooms. Turner enlisted the help of her skilled designer focusing on increased kitchen storage, a new pantry, and maximizing storage throughout the house, as well as improving all defined spaces. 

Turner explains the overall goal was to create a design that matches the lifestyle true to the homeowner’s taste. According to Turner, since people have different preferences, each remodel is custom to the customer. Turner’s client agrees. “We had some complicated items that needed a new look, and her crew figured it out. Other contractors we talked to could not find a solution. It was very custom and not cookie cutter.”

The remodel started from the ground up, literally, as the water damage required all new flooring. The entire project took around five months to complete despite minimal supply chain issues lingering from the pandemic. The construction included original dressers for the closets, custom cabinetry throughout the entire house, a reading nook by the fireplace, plus the hand-scraped hardwood floors. 

Turner observed how the crew enjoyed working on this project because of the uniqueness of the renovation.

Despite the life disruptions (like moving out of their home) during the renovation, the homeowners credit Turner for her project management. “Alison was incredible to work with. She went above and beyond to give us the best options we could have during this time of ‘madness’,” they explained. The couple praise Turner for reducing the stress, “Alison was a peaceful spirit, calming influence, in an un-calming situation. Time and time again Alison would make things right and to make sure we were happy. Even if there was a bump in the road, she communicated and gave us options that we were able to work through as a team.”

Alison believes that is what people appreciate about working with Bob Turner Construction. Her local crews concentrate on their tasks and don’t always have time to schedule contractors, attend design meetings and communicate with photos. “That’s my role to help facilitate that,” says Alison. She continues, “I coordinate interaction between the customer and crews.” 

As first mentioned in Celina Lifestyle (December 2021), Bob Turner Construction started with Bob and Alison working together (thus the company name). The company concentrated on home remodeling and renovation with outstanding customer service. Now, the roles have flipped with Alison managing the everyday business as the “ultimate project manager”. She supervises construction crews and scheduling to ensure all runs smoothly. 

Having a project manager like Alison Turner can make a renovation less stressful and rewarding. This local renovation project is what Alison Turner of Bob Turner Construction aspires every project to be like – happy customers with little stress and amazing results.
