When it was determined the team from the HGTV show House Crashers was coming to omaha, the executive producers researched and found two local companies through the uber popular site, Houzz, and then checked out their websites.  Oldenhuis Contracting and Artistico Interiors were interviewed by the House Crashers team and hired on the spot!  Less than 48 hours after the interview, they were in the initial planning stages of a basement remodel in a home in the Burke High School area. Lynn Oldenhuis of Oldenhuis Contracting Inc. and the Greater Omaha NARI Chapter Treasurer said, “What you don’t see is the 6 weeks of precise design and planning Stacie Muhle of Artistico Interiors and Chris Oldenhuis of oldenhuis Contracting Inc. did in order to be ready to complete a remodel inside 3 days! It was intense, a bit stressful at times, but most of all FUN!!! our suppliers and subcontractors, most of whom are NARI members, pulled out all the stops when it came to meeting deadlines, and they were tight. At times there might have been 8-10 different contractors in the basement at one time.”

The basement was completely transformed from a 1970’s mirrored, shag carpet covered, tired space into a vibrant eclectic living area. The environment includes a LED lit onyx table, reclaimed barn wood soffits and doors, a custom built mobile DJ stand and coffee table, 3 TV’s, and kegerator to supply the homeowner craft beer on demand.

According to the shows’ Executive Producers, not only did the Oldenhuis/Artistico Team finish on time, they completed the project in record time! This is faster than any other team of Contractors they have worked with.  The Producer also stated that having worked with over 100 contractors in the U.S. for the production of the show; they were in her Top 5!  Oldenhuis Contracting Inc. and Artistico Interiors were proud to represent Greater Omaha NARI Members nationally!  Episode premiered December 30th on DIY/HGTV network’s House Crashers.
