When asked who we are as a company, the short answer is that we are lucky and we are thankful.

Lucky in the sense that every day we get the chance to wake up and do what we love. You would never believe how excited we get over the possibilities of a new building product or a new stick of molding. (Last week one vendor was showing us a new line of tiles that I talked incessantly about for hours.) I think about our client's homes when I'm on vacation. I'm sure my Dad and I have ruined more then one family dinner discussing the potential of changing a family's floor plan in order to make the best living spaces possible. I'm not kidding; we love what we do and feel lucky that we have the chance to do it everyday.

We are thankful in the sense that our clients allow us to tear out their kitchens and bathrooms and gut their master suites, or build a home from start to finish, based on the belief and with full trust that we will put something back that warrants all the trouble and or build their dream home. And we do. The dust and discomfort involved in remodeling or building someone's home is never lost on me and even though we make every effort to minimize the abrasion, we know it is never easy.

All The Best
