When Brian and Lori Golwitzer built their dream home in Spring Grove, they couldn’t have been more pleased with the results thanks to experienced Northern Illinois homebuilders, KLM Builders. Six years later and the couple was ready to put the finishing touches on their home with a full basement remodel that would accommodate their large family gatherings and outdoor swimming pool.
“In 2007, Brian and Lori came to us with a clear vision for their dream home. We helped them design and achieve this vision on a beautiful one acre lot with plans to one day finish their expansive lower level, which would serve as a multi-functional space for entertaining and easy access to their swimming pool,” said Kim Meier, President of KLM Builders.
Plans for the extensive basement remodel included an exercise room, ample storage, brand new flooring, natural lighting, a game table area, and a full service bar for entertaining. The basement’s walkout patio, plumbing, and fireplace had already been included in the home’s initial floor plan.
“With our walkout basement leading to the pool, we were most concerned about which floor covering would best suit our needs. KLM was extremely knowledgeable and helpful in helping us select a material that not only complemented the beautiful finishes of our new space, but also offered the durability and longevity to withstand a lot of moisture, large crowds, and active pets,” said Brian.

With those concerns in mind, KLM introduced a new, innovative vinyl product from Shaw Floors. This new category of luxury flooring mimics the appearance of hardwood, tile or stone, and is designed to be resistant to water and stains. As an added benefit, the flooring’s unique application process uses a special adhesive that seals any cracks to prevent seepage, while also stopping cold air from permeating the flooring. The resilient vinyl material is exceptionally durable, comfortable and easy to clean, making it a perfect choice for areas of the home with a lot of foot traffic or activity because of its versatility.
Unlike many builders, KLM’s design center affords the customer the convenience of one-stop shopping, designed to make the complete home selection process as enjoyable and easy as possible. Virtually all of the components that make up a home are on display, from lighting fixtures to flooring samples, cabinet selections, and even counter tops. A true turnkey builder, KLM handles every detail of a client’s home from concept to completion.
“With KLM’s expert guidance, the selection process for our basement remodel was simple and completely stress-free. Prior to construction, we were able to choose our granite, backsplash, cabinets and any other prominent finishes all within KLM’s design center where we viewed samples and received recommendations that best suited our budget and personal tastes,” said Brian.

More than first class construction or remodel, when customers engage KLM Builders they enjoy the reassurance of a committed and professional team dedicated to taking their customers’ comfort and convenience into consideration throughout the duration of a project. That means all necessary prep work is completed prior to the start of construction, and disturbances are kept to a minimum in order to ensure the homeowners well-being and complete satisfaction.
“Although we were living onsite during the remodel process, KLM went the extra mile to ensure the least amount of interruption to our lifestyle as possible. I suffer from dust allergies, and the construction team even went out of their way to carefully seal the space between the lower and upper level to prevent the transfer of debris from the construction area to the upstairs. The entire remodel experience was enjoyable and hassle-free thanks to KLM’s jobsite professionalism,” said Lori.
With an extensive base of returning lifetime customers, the Golwitzers are just one of many satisfied homeowners who have entrusted KLM with all of their home construction and remodel needs. Twenty-five years of experience as a leading force in building and remodel in Northern Illinois, KLM can transform any house into a beautiful and functional home, designed to meet the needs of the whole family.
