After adding an addition to one side of this Rome vacation home, we tore out a porch and laid a foundation to add an expanded kitchen. Phase 2 included some custom design elements and unique roof framing challenges that made this project a pleasure to work on. Preparing the Outside Wall Preparing the Ground We […]
A long-time customer needed updates to their lovely seafront home. We repaired a sill, added a new deck, added a window, replicated Victorian era moulding to matching the trim with the new window to the old, and refreshed a room overlooking the new deck.

Here you can see an example of a custom tiling job. The process for this job included a niche in the tile for storage of toiletries.
Vessels sinks are popular right now. In this minor bathroom update, we replaced a bathroom countertop and added new vessel sinks.
