Founded by Brian Bartholomew, In Your Home specializes in developing practical, affordable and beautiful universal accessibility.

“Back in 2003 when my own mother was navigating a move from her longtime home in Lake Oswego to Mary’s Woods Retirement Community, I was struck by the incredible cost of retirement living,” Bartholomew said. “When I added the emotional cost it requires for families to relocate and leave behind familiar surroundings, I began to understand the strain. I felt I could help the local community with a lifestyle remodeling company that enables those of all abilities to enjoy their spaces both functionally and aesthetically.”

Instead of aging in place, In Your Home likes the term “universal design” because their services help clients of all ages. In Your Home prioritizes beautiful, durable and easy-to-maintain features that can be customized to fit the unique needs of the client, from removing shower barriers to complete bathroom and kitchen remodels. Your family doesn’t need to have special needs to work with In Your Home, but its staff is especially good at creating lasting relationships that start with a traditional remodel and evolve with the family.

Specializes in: Remodeling for universal accessibility as well as traditional remodeling and handyman services.

For clients seeking a remodel of their home or part of the home, the usual first steps include an audit of the home’s current features and a consultation on any small fixes that could increase accessibility. In Your Home’s staff of 16 is uniquely skilled at providing cost-conscious suggestions for small fixes all the way up to full remodels. In Your Home holds full accreditations from the Construction Contractors Board and NARI, and are a Certified Aging in Place Specialist (CAPS).

In Your Home also provides other services, such as traditional remodeling and handyman services. For the DIY challenged or those without the extra time, In Your Home’s handymen can handle repairs from light carpentry to replacing toilets. Without proper maintenance, small problems can turn into big problems. The specialists at In Your Home will bring their work ethic and creativity to any small project you may have.

“While we certainly love working with our accessibility-minded clients, much of our work falls within the traditional remodeling framework,” Bartholomew said. “We find that updates to bathrooms and kitchens make the biggest impact on a home’s style and livability, so we particularly enjoy those projects. This year, we were honored for the 13th year as one of Angie’s List’s Super Service Award recipients, which is voted on by Angie’s List users. Nothing makes us happier than hearing from our clients that their remodeling experience was easy and enjoyable.”

In Your Home in Lake Oswego can help you create a home that will support all your needs and fit your style. In Your Home is booking spring and summer remodeling projects currently and encourages prospective clients to reach out soon.
