This Is How Your Home Can Look

Stay informed With These Home Remodeling FAQ

We never make promises we can’t keep. Let’s chat over coffee to give you a rough estimate for our home remodel in WI. As a general guideline, it can take about 2 weeks to bring a powder room vision to life. 3-4 weeks for a complete hallway bath remodel with a tiled tub surround. 4-5 weeks for a complete bath remodel with a fully tiled shower, and 5-6 weeks for a high-end bathroom remodel.

If you want a tiled shower with a custom glass enclosure, we could wait an additional 4-8 weeks as that takes time to custom order.

Simple kitchen upgrades with new countertops and backsplash can be completed in as little as a week, where as custom kitchens can take up to 12 weeks.

We partner with local, talented subcontractors vetted by owner Justin to complete your project. You can meet them beforehand so you’ll always know who you’re inviting inside your home.

As the owner and project leader, Justin will supervise every person who works to create your dream space. You won’t have to worry about anyone slacking, doing a sloppy job, or not following your vision.

Remodeling Journey has a #DC072000742 Dwelling Contractor License, so you can feel confident about hiring a reliable contractor that can deliver a job well done. Justin himself has a #DCQ072000769 Dwelling Contractor Qualifier License.

A home remodel in Wausau, WI, doesn’t have to be expensive, but different factors come into play, and they can change the end costs.

If your budget allows it, you can spend anywhere between $150k to $700k for a home remodel based on the size of your home, the end details, and how much you want to change.

For example, you could spend around $150k to $180k for a 350-square-foot bathroom and kitchen remodel. That includes new kitchen and bathroom cabinets, backsplash, tiles showers with custom glass surround, and more.

One of our principles is being there for you long after the project is complete. We offer a 5-year workmanship warranty to ensure no material and craftsmanship defects. Once your home remodel is complete, owner Justin will check in periodically to ensure everything is in top shape. 

Plus, we do on-site visits once per year to make sure your remodel is looking perfect.

Why Our Former Clients Praise Us

Formerly known as Rust & Sawdust Home Renovations, Remodeling Journey had the pleasure of working with some amazing homeowners. Here are some of their experiences.


Jill Palecek


Justin is a fabulous communicator and very professional. Justin is meticulous in his work and it shows! We are absolutely thrilled with our new floors and Justin’s work!


Sharon Kennedy


I cannot say enough good things about Rust and Sawdust Home Renovations.

Justin was extremely prompt, getting back to me a few hours after initially contacting him and staying in contact during the entire project and then texting me a few days after finishing to see if we had any concerns or questions.

I appreciated all of his and Adria’s suggestions for my bath remodel and accent wall. He also completed several other repairs that needed to be taken care of. I highly recommend Justin and am looking forward to him installing privacy panels for us in September.


Patti Shirer


Justin has completed many jobs for us. He is extremely easy to work with, arrives exactly when he says he will, and does an excellent job start to finish. We trust him completely and will certainly use his services to complete both large and small projects in the future.
