Universal Access 
typicaly includes widening the entry for wheelchair access, blocking for grab bars, custom cabinetry and fixtures.

Estimating & Installation: Most bath remodels need a plan for permits. We call in the trades needed and go on their estimates to include in the contract. The owner selects the finishes, purchases the tile and fixtures. We go through that process with you for a small fee up front fee, then do a construction contract.

Studio & Outbuildings

Art and music studios, granny and guest units, outbuildings and sheds. I no longer do as many of these type of projects as I used to from foundation up. Most of the projects I do now are converting and upgrading existing buildings for new use.

Estimating & Installation: Most outbuildings need a plan for permits. We call in the trades needed and go on their estimates to include in the contract. We go through that process with you for a small fee upfront fee, then do a construction contract.

Home Remodel

Most home remodels that I take on now are historic restorations and interior upgrades. I no longer do the demo to floor and rebuild or additions but I still supervise those type of projects. That includes being your representative in the field, project management and site scheduling as well as taking on carpentry tasks when required.

Estimating & Installation: Supervising a constuction project is done on an hourly basis. Interior upgrading and historic restorations typically start with a site visit with a rough ball park, and then a construction contract which includes a fee that is partially rebated on start-up.
