Andy and Anita Bisek began renovating houses in Preston, Minn. approximately three years ago, and the two work very well together to bring the homes back to what they once were or better.

Anita states “we have always remodeled houses we have lived in ourselves” and with each home renovation came more experience and know-how. Andy says “doing our own houses let us not get too worried about tackling any job” and gave the couple the confidence to begin renovating houses.

The couple owns rental property in Preston and maintaining that property has given them additional knowledge, as well as doing renovations for family members.

The Bisek’s have renovated several houses in Preston and Andy says “it is hard work”, which anyone who has done renovations will agree with, but Anita says “it’s like having a job that you really, really like” and the final product is worth the effort.

Andy works part-time contracting for IBM as a Systems Architect and says he enjoys the physical work that comes with remodeling houses as it is a change from his desk job.

Anita works part-time as the secretary at St. Columban’s Catholic church in Preston. Additionally, the couple each work an average of approximately 30 hours per week on house renovations.

Except for hiring a contractor for electrical work, the couple does all of the work themselves on the houses they are fixing up and they take pride in the work they do.

Anita comments “we like to fix up houses the way we would like them if we were going to live in them” and the people who eventually buy the homes appreciate the special touches and details the couple puts into each house.

Some of these improvements include recessed lighting, pendant lighting, wood flooring, and many other features while still maintaining the home’s original character and charm.

They also try to make the houses they purchase to renovate and sell more “family friendly” says Anita, which sometimes means making significant changes. Such is the case in the house they began working on at the end of April this year which is located at 412 Fillmore Street W. in Preston.

Andy and Anita made what was once the dining room into the kitchen, which is open to the living room, giving the main living space an open floor plan that is so popular these days. This change will be appreciated by the .....
