A New Patio to Enjoy the Outdoors

We recently completed a new patio which includes an open area protected with a roof structure, an arbor and a pergola.  The beautiful patio is a stained and stamped concrete surrounded by a curved wall finished with a natural thin stone veneer and capped with the same fieldstone that is used on the walkways and steps.

Soffit Solutions

Hi Jake,

I have a soffit in my kitchen that I would like to remove to place 42 inch cabinets. I have an old home built in the 30's that has plaster walls. I removed the soffit wall so that I could also add insulation, but I found two pipes that come out about 4 inches from the wall.

Decorative Crowned Cabinets

Hi Jake,

A friend of mine wants to build 13 inch wall cabinets under a 12 inch flat section of a tray ceiling. Then attach crown to the top of the cabinets that will stick out into the room. Is it possible to do this and have it look nice?

Linda,
