New Door & Platform Steps

This project is probably best conveyed in “before and after” pictures… A couple in Athens Grove contacted us to replace their old (weird-sized) sliding glass doors with French doors — something we’d recently done for some of their friends back …

Whole Lotta’…Windows!

Like 20 of them… This was a fun project actually. A really nice couple in Briar Creek contacted us to install window casings on all of their interior windows. They’d moved into their townhouse recently, and really loved it, but …

Portico Perfection

We were contacted by clients in Cary to make some revisions to their 1970s colonial.  They love the house but wanted a new, fresh look for the front facade, and a new front door, with windows for added light.  They …

A (New) Room with a View…

Some good friends of mine wanted a storage room within the garage of their Country Club Hills home.  A corner in the expansive car port underneath the house was perfect for a roughly 10 x 15 room addition.  However, their …
