Historical Hyde Park Project Before

We are really excited to be starting a project in historical Hyde Park.  This wonderful duplex was built in 1921, and still posses many of the beautiful, unique qualities found in buildings built during that era.  The generous moldings, doors and trim are original.

Popcorn Anyone? This Media Room is So Inviting!

We recently completed a lower level remodel in conjunction with Design Connection, Inc.  This media room looks so inviting!  What a great place to view a favorite movie or sporting event!  (I’ll take extra butter!)

Table transformation

Family history will be preserved in this kitchen makeover. Sally and Don raised their children around this maple butcher block table.

We have planned a new kitchen island that will utilize this modified and renewed table as the new island counter.

Not only are we restoring a piece of family history, but we're also recycling lumber.

Getting a feel for hardwood flooring

Jake,

I'm ready to lay hardwood flooring. It says to lay felt underneath. Is this the #15 tar paper felt used in roofing?

– Terry

Terry,

There are several reasons a felt type paper is installed below hardwood floor.  The paper helps control sound, adds a softening to the floor and acts as a vapor or moisture barrier.

And The Winners Are…

Our carpenter, Tom, just completed framing out a chalkboard space in this new basement playroom for our clients Katie (6) and Sam (4).  We applied black chalkboard paint inside the frame.  The winning colors for the playroom space have been carefully selected and are Benjamin Moore’s “Rosy Blush” (top left) and “Clearest Ocean Blue” (bottom right).  We divided the room in half just to be fair!

Here's a before and after look at Katie and Sam's basement playroom.
