Feature Project  


A Basement for the whole Family




This family of four took advantage of some underutilized areas in their basement to create extra living space that offered something for everyone.

The owners being avid wine collectors needed a place to properly store their growing collection as well as a comfortable spot to sit, sip and entertain. The wine room features custom mahogany wine racking & built-ins as well as a state of the art A/C and humidification unit that keeps the temperature and humidity levels just right for long term wine storage. 


The kids got a space to play as well as individual craft & homework stations custom designed for their needs. The new family room, home gym & full bathroom will be shared and enjoyed by the whole family.

Product Spotlight


PLANE large format porcelain tile



This new product has been creating a lot of buzz among industry professionals. Why you ask? Simply put because it brings the best of many products together into one. 


The look of expensive marble or stone slabs with the durability and ease of porcelain tile. Super durable and versatile for any surface inside or out!

The large format, as large as 5'x10' tiles,  means fewer grout lines. For many showers this could mean no grout lines to clean at all!


PLANE is available in 15 different colors from several variations of marble/stone prints to the look of concrete or metal.

Remodel your Game day menu!

January is usually when we all resolve to eat healthier and excercise more right? Despite our best intentions, game day seems to ruin our resolutions....especially when the home team is playing. (GO PATRIOTS!)

Since we're good at makeovers we thought we'd try our hand at sharing some "remodeled" game day classics. The healthy & not so healthy versions go head to head...

  • Asian turkey sliders vs. Beef Burger sliders
  • Sweet potato skins vs. loaded potato skins
  • Patriots vs. Seahawks!

Let us know if these were crowd pleasers at your game day bash!
