Award Winning
Hingham Whole House Remodel
This 1950’s split level ranch received a complete overhaul inside and out. The newly added 1,200 square foot addition boasts impressive vaulted ceilings, a wide open floor plan with style and function upgrades throughout the entire home.  The exterior was where the most remarkable transformation took place with new windows, siding, roofing, dormers and custom craftsman style detailing.

Here's what our client had to say about working with the Thorson Team:

"Eric Thorson and his team are second to none. We LOVE this contractor. Before we started our project, we called other homeowners for recommendations and they shared the exact sentiments. We selected Eric and his team because he "engineered" the job and highlighted issues in advance to avoid surprises during construction. Due to this foresight, we had no surprises in the construction process. As for the finances, there were no surprises there either..." READ FULL REVIEW

Nickel Gap Shiplap

Even though the popular HGTV show "Fixer Upper" has come to an end the shiplap craze it created is still going strong. Shiplap comes in many different varieties but nickel gap shiplap seems to be the clear winner in popularity amongst our projects lately.  Nickel gap is a tongue & groove product that has a distinct gap between the horizontal boards; admittedly a bit larger than a nickel but with the same crisp squared edge.

From our projects...

Classic Nickel gap wall paneling (photo bottom left)
In the most classic applications nickel gap is used as a horizontal wall paneling in one of our recent Century Lane kitchen Remodel & Addition projects. This mudroom gets a clean fresh feel taking the shiplap from floor to ceiling. 

Nickel gap bench & wainscoting (photo bottom center)
White painted Nickel gap shiplap was paired with a custom natural walnut seat to create this unique built-in bench from our North Easton Kitchen Remodel. The Nickel gap spills over from the bench onto wainscoting that carries around the rest of the eat-in portion of this kitchen.

Nickel gap fireplace surround (photo bottom right)
White oak nickel gap with a rubio oil finish was used to surround this Hingham Master suite fireplace, creating a clean modern feel. Although a less common application, the nickel gap in the natural finish becomes the focal point in this master bedroom.

NEW Kallista Grid Faucet

This inspiring faucet has an almost magical quality to it's design and would make a statement and be a conversation piece in any home.

The designer was given creative freedom to create something that transcended traditional manufacturing thought processes.  The use of negative space has immense impact but created challenges when function was introduced. This is where good design inspires amazing innovation. The faucet employs 3d printing techniques to precisely manufacture the water path through the minimal simplistic body of the faucet. 

We have a feeling the new Kallista Grid faucet will be showing up on some of our future projects, maybe even yours.  Ask us where you can source this inspiring faucet for your next project!
