South Amherst is laid back friendly family-oriented Village where people still know their neighbors. We like working here because the people are friendly, hard-working individuals who welcome us into their homes to perform our jobs. The Village of South Amherst is known for being the home of the world’s largest sandstone quarry. In 1808 the first mail route from Cleveland to Maumee went through the area on foot, later by horseback. During the War of 1812, a road was put in between Ridgeville and Florence, later to be named South Ridge Road (now Route 113). Today South Amherst has 1,688 citizens, 683 homes, 10 businesses, 6 churches, and is part of the Firelands School district.

Custom stained cabinets, custom wood, and granite countertops complete this bathroom remodel.
“Mike remodeled our 30 year-old master bathroom in 2016. This was a very large room with a platform tub (dangerous), vaulted ceiling (terrible lighting), and an average size shower with outdated tile (maintenance nightmare). I knew the room had tremendous potential, so I began sketching ideas, clipping magazine pictures, and sharing them with Mike. Before long, we had the plan.”
“I’ve read the other reviews about Mike and All Seasons Builders and I agree 100% with the positive comments, therefore I will not repeat, but add some new ones!”
“A master bath remodel involves some major inconveniences. Our closets (not part of the project) were still totally in use and in the same space. Mike was meticulous about sealing them off so they were kept clean and accessible. In fact, he was very conscientious about keeping all areas of the house he had to access during the project, clean and protected.”
“Mike’s courteous and friendly nature made him very easy to talk to and work with. He arrived each day, right on time. We always knew we had until that time to be in the space without disruption. This made the whole project feel predictable and comfortable.”
“Our new master bath is now functional, easy to clean, and truly a work of art (see pics). We are so happy every day!”

Here is a kitchen remodel at your South Amherst neighbors home located in Vermilion. This once dark and cramped kitchen was completely gutted down to the studs. We created a more open space by adding a wider window to allow more light. Part of an interior wall was removed to allow room for the oven/microwave and pantry cabinets, this also opened the room to the dining area. The island with raised seating for 4, electric cook top, and a direct vent range hood was added. The cabinets are made of dark wood for a clean modern look. This kitchen was finished off with Corean countertops.
The natural pine flooring was part of a previous project we did a few years earlier to the entire first floor of this home. We removed carpet and vinyl flooring from on top of this beautiful floor, made repairs to the damaged floor by replacing damaged boards and filling in old register vent holes. Once repairs were made, we had the floor completely sanded down to reveal its natural and aged beauty. The floor was finished with three coats of polyurethane.
“Since 2011 we’ve hired All Seasons Builders to restore and repair original wood flooring, to entirely remodel our kitchen and to build our lakefront deck from scratch. This year we are looking to Michael and his crew to do a more comprehensive remodel of our home in Vermilion. My husband and I have hired and worked with many builders over the years, remodeling four different homes in three states. All Seasons Builders is the only company we have hired for more than one project. Michael Strehle, president, is a pleasure to work with and we are always happy with the result. During early project discussions, Michael is patient, thoughtful, fair and straightforward. Even with lots of back and forth communication he rarely misses a detail in finalizing a contract. He offers up good options for improving a design or lowering cost and he is clear throughout the project about any additional costs we might incur. He pays attention to his work area, keeping it as livable as possible during construction and he gets the job done in a timely manner.”
“We highly recommend All Seasons Builders (5 stars).”
