We kicked off this project with a literal bang when we stumbled upon a ledge at the rear of the house, right where we planned to lay the new foundation. After some diligent scraping, we were satisfied enough to proceed with the foundation work. Any remaining ledge was skillfully encapsulated with spray foam in a small section of the basement adjacent to the mechanical room, ensuring it didn't encroach on livable space.
Our journey continued with the construction of a rear addition, featuring a master bedroom, master bathroom, living area, and additional full bathroom on the first floor. Our goal was to seamlessly integrate this new space with the existing home's charming exterior.
Along the way, we discovered that the original walls of the house lacked proper insulation, prompting us to extend our efforts into the existing structure. We revamped the kitchen, staircase, and all the flooring, even giving the fireplace a makeover.
In the end, our clients were thrilled with the results, and I couldn't have been happier. Construction projects often throw unexpected challenges our way, but we remained focused and determined. Working on this home was truly a rewarding experience.
We offer a wide range of services including custom home builds, renovations, and commercial construction. We are committed to delivering high-quality workmanship and outstanding customer service on every project.
This project was quite enjoyable. My client wasn't a fan of the split-level ranch style and desired a significant transformation, yet struggled to envision the possibilities. Through a combination of conceptual drawings and inspiration from Pinterest, we were able to strike the perfect balance for their home.
Our initial actions involved the removal of the existing roof and raising the first floor by a few feet, followed by the addition of a second floor. Despite encountering some hurdles along the journey, we efficiently erected the framework of the new structure. Concurrently, our attention turned to crafting the kitchen, boasting a 36" range, inset beaded shaker cabinets, dual pantries, and an inviting island. To accommodate the open layout, we ingeniously integrated a table onto the island, creating a practical dining space for the family. The table's legs, crafted from newel posts, add a touch of ingenuity, while the countertops exude elegance with their quartz finish.
In the living area, our focus was on blending aesthetics with functionality. We opted to introduce a distinctive design between two expansive custom shelving units, complete with cabinets below. This setup not only provides ample display space for cherished items but also discreet storage for less frequently used belongings. In response to the frequent gatherings, we ensured ample dining space by accommodating two tables in the dining room. Additionally, the dining room features a grand 16-foot double door that opens onto the covered terrace, seamlessly merging indoor and outdoor spaces.
One of the home's standout features is the master bathroom, spanning an impressive 240 square feet and adorned with a captivating barrel ceiling painted in a lustrous silver metallic shade. The bathroom boasts a double vanity, bidet, toilet, and an expansive 8-foot by 8-foot shower. This opulent shower experience includes six spray heads by Delta, a Riobel rain shower/waterfall feature, and a handheld wand, all seamlessly controlled by a Kohler DTV Digital Interface. Adorned with elegant white Carrara marble, both the shower's floor and walls exude luxury, with the added indulgence of heated flooring, even within the shower enclosure. Completing the lavish bathroom experience, a heated towel rack awaits just outside the shower door.
Lastly, turning our attention to the backyard, we envisioned an outdoor kitchen and a covered area for hosting BBQs. While initially a bold idea, we took the plunge and enhanced the outdoor space by coloring and stamping the concrete to resemble wood. The addition of lighting and fans further enhances the appeal of this outdoor oasis.

The transformation of this house is truly remarkable. Originally a 3-family home with two 1-bedroom apartments on the first floor and a 2-bedroom apartment on the second floor, it lacked character and space. However, my clients, whose family was expanding, desired both a larger living area and a more appealing aesthetic.
Dating back to 1910, the house presented its fair share of challenges; nothing seemed quite level or straight. Nevertheless, we embarked on the renovation journey with enthusiasm. Our vision included adding a half-story above the second floor within our budget constraints. This clever addition provided two extra bedrooms and a bathroom, bringing the total to four bedrooms and two bathrooms – all with breathtaking ocean views. To enhance the charm, we decided to install wrap-around porches on both floors, a decision that proved immensely satisfying as it offered panoramic vistas from every angle.
Throughout the renovation process, we maintained a sense of joy and camaraderie. Seamlessly integrating the new interior space with the existing structure was a rewarding challenge. To achieve cohesion, we refinished all the floors, ensuring uniformity throughout the house. Additionally, we addressed practical needs by relocating the washer and dryer to the main floor, much to the delight of the homeowners.
Furthermore, we invested in energy-efficient upgrades such as new windows and spray foam insulation, which not only enhance comfort but also contribute to significant savings on heating and cooling bills.
Reflecting on the project, I am immensely proud of the outcome. There is little I would change about this renovation; it stands as a testament to thoughtful design and meticulous craftsmanship.

This room in Belmont experienced extreme temperature fluctuations, becoming frigid in winter and sweltering in summer due to inadequate insulation in the walls and ceiling. The homeowner desired to transform this space for year-round use, so we devised solutions while preserving its rustic charm, including exposed rafters and collar ties.
To enhance insulation without compromising aesthetics, we opted for closed-cell insulation to maximize the R-value. Through careful planning, we crafted a stunning bonus room featuring built-ins and unique bookshelves.
Ensuring structural integrity was paramount, so our team meticulously inspected and reinforced existing rafters with brackets and structural screws, maintaining the room's character. We meticulously finished the wood surfaces, applying stains and polyurethane coats for a polished look.
Seamlessly integrating the floor with the adjoining mudroom, we wove oak to create a cohesive transition. Custom measurements were taken during construction for tailored built-ins, including window seats, which were pre-built and installed to perfection.
For a striking contrast, we painted the built-ins and cabinets a rich, dark gray, adding depth to the room's palette. The result was a remarkable transformation that delighted our clients.

Here's another gem from our projects in Belmont. Our client had a vision for their basement - they wanted a space that not only offered tranquility but also doubled as an entertainment hub. Picture this: before our transformation, it was a dingy, uninspiring area where the only reason to venture down was for laundry duty.
But now, the basement has undergone a remarkable makeover. It boasts a full bathroom complete with a shower, fulfilling the practical needs of the space. Additionally, we've crafted a custom-built entertainment center in a Venetian stucco, perfectly tailored to house TVs and other electronic systems, alongside comfortable theater-style seating.
To ensure year-round comfort, we made the decision to install radiant floor heating. This innovative system provides cozy warmth during the winter months but is refreshingly cool in the summer - a double win for our clients.
And that's not all. We've maximized the functionality of the space by integrating clever cabinetry, including two discreet Murphy beds. When not in use, they seamlessly blend into the design, offering an unexpected yet highly practical sleeping solution. This transformed basement is now a versatile and inviting retreat, exceeding our client's expectations in both form and function.
