Exciting new Kitchen Design Approved by Owners!

WE are opening up the kitchen!  we removed a partition wall blocking the view from the homes heartbeat - the kitchen - so that you can see clear across the house!  This makes for an open and very social environment while also bringing the homes true size to view.  It will be a huuuuuge improvement!  Completion pictures sure to come!

Added Can Lights to the Kitchen and Don't Forget Under Cabinet Lighting!

Can lights are all the rage of course for some time now.  The new improvements are the use of LED technology that is new and exciting.  You can use smaller cans and produce more light.  More, you can choose from a wide array of color or temperature in the lighting you like.  From morning glows to bright daylights.  Its a much more even and defined light system that show cases any room they are placed in.  And of course there will be dimmers to complete.  Completion pictures to come!
