These samples will give you an idea of the scope of our work.

Although most of these samples show homes in which we have done major overhauls,
many have been done over several years, one piece at a time.

The projects shown below represent construction challenges, multiple solutions to various problems,
something new and better or something older that has been restored.

The results speak for themselves and reflect the close, ongoing creative and working relationships we develop with our clients.
