Vermilion is one of our favorite cities to work. Known for being located on the shores of Lake Erie and a boating town. We have built homes or additions on the lake in Vermilion during the summer months. This can be a real treat because we have a great view to marvel while working and the occasional cool breeze off the lake on a hot summer day is very refreshing. Vermilion is located in Erie and Lorain Counties and has a population of approximately 10,500 people. Vermilion is a place where many people spent their weekends and summers vacationing, which makes it a happy, laid-back city.

At the top is a large project we designed that included removing the entire roof over an existing first floor and adding a steeper roof with loft where an attic space once was. Several interior walls were removed to create a larger living room/dining room with cathedral ceilings and kitchen, all remodeled as part of the loft addition. What made this project tricky was a newly remodeled bathroom and laundry room below the new loft area that could not be disturbed or damaged during construction. The framing and installation of the new roof had to be done quickly in order to prevent water damage to these areas from rain. Large North and East facing windows give a beautiful view of Lake Erie. The shed dormer also with a view, opens up the loft making it a good space for reading, sleeping or playing. Large patio doors open up to a covered stamped concrete porch with wood ceiling and detailed wood columns.
“Absolutely fantastic to work with. Mike performed a major home renovation for us and it turned out great. Very patient, organized and always accessible.”
This Photo was part of a large 1st floor remodel caused by flood damage from a bursting pipe due to freezing from heat loss. Interior walls were removed to create an open space between the kitchen and living room. This job included a laundry room, den, pantry, stair case, hallway, bathroom, kitchen and living room remodel.
“Working with Mike Strehle and All Seasons Builders was unlike any other construction project we had experienced in the past. Mike and his team of course are excellent craftsmen and their work matched all of our highest expectations. The finished project was, and remains, a joy to behold.
While many builders do beautiful work, very few of them conduct their business with the integrity and professionalism of Mike Strehle. Mike is very organized and conscientious of both his schedule and the client’s time. It is normal for Mike to map out the schedule for the week and tell you specifically what days and even hours he will be at the project, rarely varying from this. This leaves the client with a predictable progression of the project which, in my experience, is almost unheard of in the building trades.
I would, and have recommended Mike and his crew without reservation to countless friends and family!”

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 direct vent range hood was added. The cabinets are made of dark wood for a 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).”

This modern new home is built on the shores of Lake Erie. Unlike no other! Along with looking different than any other home, it is also super energy efficient. The walls are built out of ICF’s (insulating concrete forms), the roof is built out of SIPS (structurally insulated panels), PV system (solar electric) sits perfectly on the south facing roof, triple pane windows, energy efficient boiler system, and third-party Energy Star certification.
