We take on projects as small as a door or window replacement and as large as second story addition to your home. We pride ourselves on good workmanship, good value and a handcrafted approach to home remodeling, and we see this as an integral part of building and remodeling sustainable homes. We combine reliable materials, well considered design and a respect for nature to create these beautiful and efficient spaces.
We will always suggest reliable materials and appliances as a counterpoint to fragile and expensive “trendy” designs and systems. We value what works, and a simple approach often works best. New products and techniques come on the market constantly: we welcome those products that work well and are of good value. We will tell you what our experience has been with products you suggest.
