If upgrading your home in time for the holidays is on your mind, but not yet on your schedule, there’s still time to complete minor renovations if you contact your contractor soon — they can advise you on what may or may not be possible.

“We could still complete minor kitchen and bathroom upgrades if we start this month,” said Homeworks Construction president Jim Byxbee. “Entryway beautification is another renovation clients often call for when the major year-end holidays are approaching.



“What’s important is to stick with finishes and improvements that will not require permits … for example, countertops, lighting, appliances, painting, a new front door, landscaping. Our designers and builders can advise the homeowner on the best course of action. Our specifications manager will also be available to meet with clients at our showroom and offices to review products and our extensive collection of samples. Our rwebsite, homeworkshawaii.com, displays both whole projects and details that would provide ideas. Some clients bring in photos and articles to serve as a guide to their preferences and indication of their budget, not the least of the considerations. We can always start with a wish-list and then scale back to come up with an overall plan that makes sense for them financially.”


An award-winning general contractor and design/build firm, Homeworks was voted best in several categories by a local magazine, and has been ranked among “Hawaii’s Best” Home Builders by the Honolulu Star-Advertiser.
