Skäpar Design Build

At Skäpar, we approach home remodeling differently. Whether our team of owner Nate Mielke and his professional staff are helping clients create a kitchen, basement or bathroom, we start with transparency and honesty. Because we understand that while remodeling can be exciting and fun, it can be overwhelming and messy, so we believe in open communication throughout the whole process.

Underpinning this approach to client relationships is our careful craftsmanship and thoughtful design — all coming together to create custom living spaces that exceed our clients’ expectations.

“Nate was very easy to work with. He was always responsive to our concerns and worked to resolve any issues that arose during the project. He also took it upon himself to fix pre-existing problems in our house that he noticed during the construction, such as the lock on our front door, which didn’t lock properly until he fixed it.”

“We are no longer embarrassed by our bathrooms! The spaces are beautiful and functional. Skäpar helped throughout the whole process with design, picking materials, and bring our dream space to reality. The craftsmanship of the work was excellent and they are genuinely nice people to work with.”

“I absolutely recommend Skäpar for the work Nate and his team did. He was always available for my endless questions, provided frequent updates and fostered cooperation with everyone involved in this quite involved remodel. He accomplished a dream come true of what I envisioned.”

“We had a great experience working with Skäpar. Nate was approachable, accommodating, and overall very easy to work with. All the workers he had on our project were friendly and professional. We liked all the subcontractors he used as well. Everything was done on time and on budget. Nate and his crew were very sensitive to minimizing any disruptions to our personal space as they built our addition, and they kept the work area clean and tidy. Best of all the project came out great. The addition fetches a lot of compliments, and makes our house way more pleasant and functional.”

We have used Skäpar for three bathroom renovations. All three turned out beautifully. In addition, Nate’s communication with us throughout our renovations was excellent. He is accessible, responsive and a consummate professional. The work that Skäpar does is top notch and his tile guy is very talented. We couldn’t recommend Skäpar more highly.
