What we do next is meet with you. We will take
measurements and discuss what you would like. Even if you
are not certain of exactly what style you want we have the
experience to take your home, your tastes and your
personality into account as well as what will work with the
space you have. In this instance our client wanted to make
the living room not only more attractive and usable but to
be a focal point when entering through the attached kitchen.
Every job is unique but it all starts with a phone call or email. We
will discuss what you would like to have done, if it's something that
we are unable to do, whether it's not possible in your time frame or if
it is something we do not do, we will let you know right away so you
do not waste your valuable time.

shape. At this point we cleaned our work area and brought
our tools back to the shop to allow for the fireplace to be
Finally, after the tile was installed and the last
details taken care of, we were finished. The
only task left at the time of this photo shoot is
the installation of the display lighting at each
opening beside the TV. In this instance our
client had that accomplished. We can handle
most aspects of any project or we have others
we work with who are also craftsmen of the
highest quality and integrity.
