Living in Comfort and Style

Between meeting work deadlines, shuffling the kids to and from their various activities and handling the stress of a hectic daily schedule, it can be easy for necessary improvements around the house to get overlooked. ­But when life slows down and we end up spending more time at home than usual, we may start to notice that the outdated kitchen could use a makeover or the unfinished basement could be remodeled to add much-needed usable space.

With residential construction on the rise this year and showing no signs of slowing down, many homeowners have decided now is the time to begin the projects they have long dreamed of, and their first call is to Fascella Construction Corporation (FCC). A full-service general contracting firm licensed in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, FCC has been in business for more than two decades under the leadership of founder Chris Fascella.
FCC handles all aspects of the job from design to completion and is happy to bring clients the luxurious and functional spaces they desire.

"Now that people are spending more time at home they're noticing some details that need upgrading or updating," Fascella says. "They need their spaces to be more organized and comfortable. Finished basements are becoming classrooms for kids and home offices for both husband and wife. People are also cooking more so they want remodeled kitchens."

No matter which part of the house a homeowner needs to address, FCC will obtain all of the building permits, oversee inspections and coordinate the daily schedule while keeping the client informed and providing expert guidance on design elements and trendy materials.

Home offices
Since many people have transitioned to working from home and children are learning remotely, home offices have been in big demand. FCC excels at modifying little-used spaces into rooms that have all of the amenities of a normal office or classroom.
The basement is another area that is being utilized more. FCC designs and builds new living spaces for entertaining, and home offices that provide quiet areas to conduct business remotely. Custom-built cabinetry complements the specific needs of your family.

Kitchen remodels
Homeowners are not frequenting restaurants as much and takeout can become boring after a while, so they are spending more time than ever in the kitchen preparing meals and gathering as a family. FCC will assist in transforming the heart of the home to make it not only more efficient but also aesthetically pleasing.

Old barn wood and other reclaimed materials are a great way to create an "elegant country" look, which is a popular trend.
People prefer the clean lines of the cabinetry, white or gray painted cabinets with rustic metal and wood accents. Specialty features include barn beam floating shelves and wall coverings in reclaimed barn siding to create an inviting space around the TV or home office.

Other popular renovations
FCC can also turn a master bathroom into a spa-like retreat or create an exercise room for those who are wary of going to the gym. FCC provides closet design and built-in cabinetry for specific organizational needs. A recent project includes a playroom with cabinetry for the children's art supplies and games so they're all out of the way but still accessible. The doors have corkboard for the kids' artwork to be displayed and the focal point is a reclaimed chalkboard from an old schoolhouse.

Respecting the home
For all of these projects, FCC's team members have a reputation for treating customers' homes like their own. They are always courteous and make sure to seal the construction area off from the rest of the house, so daily living is not interrupted. The dignity and professionalism they display is why homeowners usually become clients for life.

"We have many customers who come back to us years after the initial job when they're ready to move on to the next project," Fascella says. "Or we hear from people with family members who had a great experience with us and they hope we can do the same for them. If you need something now or down the road, we're here for you. All you have to do is give us a call."
