The ice machine provides many options; including measured cold water.

The Kitchen comes together perfectly.

Pavers Put to the Test

During the intense thunderstorm last week

Driveway Time!

Over 600 square feet of driveway and walkway to be installed.
To remove: over 7 dump truck loads of soil.

Jake spends an entire day loading dirt into
Pete's dump truck, while Jen dumps the loads.

The Kitchen and Great Room Come Together

Quartz Countertop being installed


The finished Countertop and the built-in bookcase staining in progress.
