Cabinets and Flooring

Kitchen cabinet installation was the site task last week at our Second Street addition and remodeling project. The owners selected maple cabinets for this project and they look wonderful.

Kitchen remodeling

We recently started a kitchen remodel for a client on the east side of Northfield. The work is not as extensive as in many projects we undertake and does not involve any addition or expansion of the home. Because of that we have been able to move along fairly quickly.

Enclosed Porch

Earlier this spring we remodeled a front porch for a client. It was a fairly simple job, but made the space much more useable for them. The south facing front porch was fully screened. They enjoyed sitting in the porch many evenings protected from bugs. However, they wanted to enjoy the porch a bit more into the cold weather. The...
