If you are going to entertain this summer, you’ll need an outdoor kitchen/grilling area! Featured above is a built-in grill and outdoor refrigerator.  And while you’re at it why not wow the guests with an outdoor gas fireplace!


Another great way to entertain is with a custom patio with a fabulous built-in grilling station.  And don’t forget that everyone loves a fire-pit!

3. Exterior Shutters


A great way to affordably transform the look of your home’s exterior is to change your fading, outdated vinyl shutters!  Featured in the picture above are custom cedar board and batten shutters stained in a dark walnut.


If you would rather paint your new custom shutters, they can be built with no-rot material and painted in any color your choose!  Featured in this picture above are custom board and batten shutters painted in gray.

4. Bathroom Remodeling


When you need to escape the summer heat you can run to relax in your newly remodeled bathroom!  Many homeowner’s are picking now to update and renovate their outdated bathrooms.  Featured above is a 12 ft custom tiled shower that replaced a bathtub and smaller shower.


If you still love to relax and soak in a tub, we can replace your existing tub with a new 6ft whirpool tub like the one featured above!  Marble tiles with glass accents are very popular right now… Changing out your old vanity for a fantastic new one with granite or marble tops will transform your bathroom!
