Tours

Shop our projects (or just take a dust-free tour of our renovations)!  We do 95% of the work ourselves and have lived in many of the properties as we hammer away.  Renovating is dusty business but we approach it with passion, excitement, and plain old hard work.  Here are some of our projects:
