Meet Greg Schmidt

Meet Greg SchmidtI built my first piece of furniture during college in 1974, and  engaged my passion for building and remodeling ever since. While earning my Bachelor of Landscape Architecture in 1977, I also pursued my desire to be a craftsman; designing and building countless furniture, cabinet, and woodworking projects since then. In 1991, I started a small remodeling company specializing in renovating and repairing vintage homes in the Minneapolis Lakes area and the Crocus Hill area of St. Paul.

In 1995, I founded Home Restoration Services, Incorporated – bringing together all the elements of a professional remodeling company, blending new and past affiliations with architects, engineers, interior designers and landscape architects. Along the way, I formed alliances with a core group of professional artisan subcontractors who live up to high standards of courtesy, attention to detail, and service to the client.

In over 22 years of remodeling, we have built a diverse mix of projects, including simple exterior renovations, room conversions, and complex additions with new kitchens and baths. My design background allows me to resolve construction-related issues while a project is being built; collaborating with architects, homeowners and building officials to keep the project moving.


I really enjoyed working with Greg Schmidt/Home Restoration Services. His companys’ work is thorough and very high quality. He expects the best from his sub-contractors and is on-site to make sure the work is completed and meets his (and my) standards. His attention to detail is very much appreciated. I feel like I can trust Greg and not have to second-guess him. And one more thing – he helped us catch a mouse, which clearly was beyond the call of duty


We have come to know Home Restoration Services via a project they completed for our neighbors. We think the work looks wonderful and know our neighbors are pleased with the results. We noted how considerate Home Restoration was during the construction. Not only were they polite and friendly, but always gave a wave and let the kids watch them work. They even paused to answer the children’s questions. Home Restoration Services was consistently on the job and seemed to be very considerate regarding equipment and parking. We think they should be considered if you are contemplating a remodeling project.” An observant neighbor
