Our Story

Serving Washtenaw County for Over 20 Years!

Embark on a journey with us that began in 2003, ignited by a simple request from a friend seeking help with a “few house projects” in his aging childhood home. Little did we know, this seemingly routine favor would transform into a passion-fueled adventure.

Picture this—a nearly century-old house, untouched by modern updates, begging for a complete rejuvenation. Armed with rickety ladders, rusty tools, and a dash of DIY courage, we dove headfirst into a year-long project, meticulously restoring every inch of the home. Original trim, tile, fixtures, and doors were salvaged, breathing life back into the space while balancing historic charm with essential modernization.

As the dust settled, our friend’s home emerged, not only restored but elevated to its former functional and timeless Dutch Colonial glory. The transformation didn’t go unnoticed—soon, friends and neighbors were clamoring for our expertise. What started as a “few house projects” blossomed into a full-fledged commitment to helping others realize their renovation, remodeling, and restoration dreams.

Fueled by this newfound passion, we took the plunge, leaving behind our day jobs to establish our little company. The demand for our unique touch quickly expanded beyond residential spaces, leading us to venture into the commercial realm.

Fast forward more than 20 years, and we stand proudly as the architects of change, having painted historic landmarks, breathed warmth into cold basements, transformed kitchens into family hubs, and converted forgotten attic spaces into serene retreats. Our diverse portfolio reflects the varied dreams we’ve brought to life, underscoring our role in making clients’ visions a tangible reality.

Every project is a canvas, and we’ve honed a diverse set of skills along the way. Hungry for knowledge, we stay at the forefront of industry trends—embracing the latest paints, tools, and processes. Yet, we also hold dear the timeless wisdom that paved our journey, acknowledging the value of tradition in our craft.

Now, standing at the crossroads of innovation and heritage, we continue to build inspired spaces that captivate and endure. Join us on this exciting venture where your dreams become our mission, and together, we craft spaces that will be cherished for generations to come.

“Jerome and Mike were excellent!  They provided a realistic plan for our bathroom addition, communicated closely with us throughout the process, and came up with workable solutions for our old home.  Would recommend them without reservation!” – Pam & Dave M., Ann Arbor

“I waited many years to overhaul my kitchen so when the moment arrived, I chatted with several contrctrs.  But it was Jerome who seemed as geeked as I.  Now I stand in my kitchen and can’t believe it’s the same space.  I appreciate the human aspect of FCG; everyone I dealt with was professional, communicative, helpful & seemed to take a genuine interest.” – Alice V., Ann Arbor
