A Decorative Lattice Touch…

This project was short and sweet.  Our client has a screened-in porch with some space below…a magnet for the family dog, who loved to dig under it and play hide-and-seek. They thought that a functional but decorative “lattice” would not …

King-Sized Crown!

This client has a sleek, modern townhouse in south Raleigh.  She loved the height of the ceilings and wanted to accent them with some big, bold crown moulding, especially the expansive living room, bathroom and kitchen.  We agreed! Here are …

Newer (Safer) Deck Posts.
