About this pro

I really care for my clients and have made friends of many along the way.  I treat their home and project as if it were my own.  Each project is important.

Sorry to say it is in my blood.  If I am not designing something or creating I am a unhappy person.  To take a bare bones  or ugly room and turn it into a usable, beautiful space is a honor.

Describe a recent project you are fond of.

Actually it was on my own kitchen.  Big, bad and beautiful.  No holds bar on the project as it was my budget and was able to install top of the line appliances.

Another was a tiny bath in a clients home. Not only was it small but it also had five walls which made placement of a usable size vanity a issue.  All was solve with a custom cabinet to fit where two walls came together all with a craftsman style.  Tiny is just as hard as big as you have to design for the same function only you have many limitations.
