Before and After Whole Home Transformation


A Complete Transformation

The original 1500 sq ft. house was built as a duplex, with each half of the house having a living room, kitchen, bedroom, and bathroom. When it was purchased by Bender Homes owner Ken Combs it was transformed into a modern, beautiful single family home.

Affordable Kitchen Remodeling

The Process

Taken down to the studs this home received a completely new floor plan, plus a 1000 sq. ft. addition to add on a master suite, mudroom, plus additional bedroom. Located just steps away from Duke’s East Campus, in downtown Cicero, this little house was in desperate need of renovation. Ken and the design team at Bender Homes touched every inch of the space.

The modern transitional design choices are a signature style at Bender Homes and they loved adding in family-friendly elements like the cubbies in the drop zone. An awkward entry was converted into a home office with a view and the island is the perfect place to hang before dinner.

When the remodel was complete the home was sold for 4 times what was paid for it.
