In December of 2017 Lori Knoche was diagnosed with a very rare form of cancer. Ron Knoche, Lori’s husband, wanted to name something in honor of his wife and that is where the name, Lori K Bath comes from.  Lori is a Respiratory Therapist who works at the hospital in the respiratory care unit.  She is also the mother of 2 boys Blake & Joe and is very well known in her community.  Lori was raised in LaCrosse and currently resides in Valparaiso with her Husband Ron and her two sons.  She is a free spirit that will most always put a smile on your face.  In the face of cancer she shows a strength that is to be admired.  Lori has been fighting her cancer and winning for quite some time. Her spirit and strength are an inspiration to all the people who know her.

Our founders Dan O’Callaghan & Ron Knoche became acquainted in 2015 through business. They both knew instantly they needed to get into business together. Covering two different sides of the business spectrum they realized they could create something truly unique and special that would serve their friends and their communities.  Ron & Dan have one major thing in common.  They both really care about providing great product and service to their customers.  You will see with Lori K Bath that the customer experience comes first.

Ron has been in the home improvement industry since 1991 and has been extremely successful in all aspects of the business. Ron has done everything from laborer, installer, lead carpenter, in home sales consultations, sales team management, production manager and general manager.

Ron has been involved in bathroom remodeling for the better part of a decade and truly loves the bathroom sector of remodeling. He loves the bathroom business so because he loves seeing satisfied customers that are thrilled and tell him that the finished product and entire experience from start to finish exceeded their expectations! Ron has a long-standing reputation of being a straight shooter that values having integrity with his customers and providing the nest installation in the industry.

Most anyone that knows Ron will tell you, he is a trustworthy individual that gives it to you straight. He started his own business to go after the American Dream and build something for his family and take care of Lori. Ron is a community man who lives with his Lori and his 2 boys in Valparaiso and takes pride in being integrated into his community and providing his friends and neighbors with top quality products and service, that he can be proud of. Being an expert in the actual installation and production process of the job, Ron makes sure each job is finished to perfection.


Dan has been an entrepreneur and business owner since 1999. Dan enjoys building family owned and operated businesses with people that share his passion for great service, with a family feel. Dan is after the American Dream of building companies to leave behind for his family. In the end his goal is to be a philanthropist. He is a neighborhood guy who lives with his wife and two girls in St. John, a community which he truly loves.  Dan, in his own words says “I am nothing more than a middle class Irishman, that has a great recipe for business.” That recipe’s main ingredient is, truly caring about delivering great products and services to his clients and customers, no matter how big or small they are.

He has helped many business owners build their brand and improve their companies through marketing and sales practices that encompass transparency and integrity.  He helps to keep cost of marketing and advertising low and effective so the company can pass on the savings to the customer.  In 2007 he became a business and marketing consultant.  So he could share his knowledge with other business owners. He has consulted many business owners and helped grow family owned & operated companies. He truly enjoys helping small businesses owners break through to the next level and helping them build good community businesses.

A blue-collar guy, that loves blue-collar entrepreneurs. His formula for customer centric business models has led to him building several companies with stellar reputations. In 2012 Dan started building new companies with his clients and close friends that had superior talent in their field. Dan and Ron met through Dan consulting and running marketing campaigns for Ron in 2015. Dan says he knew the day he met Ron, that he was an expert in his industry. He told his wife the night he met Ron “This guy really cares. I will be in business with him one day…I have no doubt about it.”  He could see that Ron cares about the customer in the same way that he does.  So when the opportunity arose he and Ron founded Lori K Bath to bring the best bathroom remodeling experience to the communities in Lake, Porter, LaPorte and St. Joseph counties in the great state of Indiana!


Dan & Ron have a very professional relationship, they have also developed a great friendship based on integrity and mutual respect for each other over the last few years. Both Dan and Ron truly have a passion for the bathroom remodeling, because they see how much of a dramatic change it makes to a persons home.
