For Timothy, there is no greater reward then visiting with homeowners 2, 5, or 10 years after their remodeling is complete and seeing that the home still looks and functions great. He loves stories about how an addition or new kitchen has enhanced the family’s life in daily experience and special events. Creating these one-of-a-kind, personalized remodeling solutions for peoples’ homes is why he started Bluestem Construction and what fuels his passion.

In over 20 years of remodeling projects, Timothy has done every step himself. This direct, deep experience gives him an insight that, along with creativity, allows him to solve almost any type of remodeling challenge. Expanding on his formal education in the Arts, he is always developing his knowledge with certifications and professional training. Timothy holds both the Certified Remodeler and the Green Certified Professional designations from the National Associations of the Remodeling Industry (NARI).

Building a strong team that shares his values and passion is now the most important thing that Timothy does to bring a fantastic remodeling experience to homeowners.
