Outside Living Room

We have wrapped up our work on the ‘outside’ living area addition we created for a client this summer. This was a fun project that involved adding the room addition and deck on a home we constructed about 6 years ago.

The room includes a lovely gas fireplace as well as a buffet serving area, complete with sin...

River House work

Work at our river house remodeling project has been moving along very nicely. Last week we completed the painting of the ceiling and walls. The walls throughout are a soft blue color. That stands out nicely against the painted white doors and trims. The existing doors and trims were dark stained oak. The painters used an excellen...

Interior trim work

The interior trim work is moving along well on the rural Northfield home that we are constructing. This is a decent size home, with about 3,500 finished square feet so the drywall and painting work has taken a bit of time to complete.

We are installing a good sized crown molding at the top ...

All the cabinets are cherry, but each of the three units is slightly different. One of the units has plastic laminate countertops for the work areas in the kitchen and granite on the island. We ...
