We are well underway renovating the Marble Slab Creamery. We temporarily closed a bit over a week ago and will reopen in early March. Make sure you mark your calendar and come by to see the new updated look and have some of the best ice cream you will find! Their ice cream is always made fresh in their store. They start with dairy from local farms and add in the freshest ingredients. Then they hand-craft the ice cream in small batches, all in the creamery, right in their store. The rest is up to you! With hand-rolled cones and the freshest, unlimited mix-ins you can Direct Your Delicious ™.

Here is a video from Building Science showing the benefits of a product I have been using for a number of years. The science behind this product tells the story. The Zip Tape is so strong it will almost pull fingerprints off as you unroll the tape to install! Well that is only a bit of an exaggeration. It is extremely strong and durable. Structural durability, moisture protection, air barrier, and thermal resistance are all benefits of the Zip System® and when your project is sheathed with Zip System®, there is no question that you have a very tight structure.

Room additions are a great solution for providing additional living space to your home, if your family is growing, or is expecting to grow. Room addition costs are also comparatively low compared to selling your existing home and moving to a new and larger home. Room additions, versus buying existing larger homes, also offer the opportunity to be creative and to customize future living space. For example, you can elect to add a family room addition or bedroom, bump out your kitchen, or even build a garage addition with overhead living space.

With room additions, you can aesthetically determine where the room addition ties into the existing home and select all of the exterior and interior finished materials. Room additions are not unlike building an entirely new home, particularly if the room addition includes a kitchen and/or bathroom. Most, if not all, of the standard trades that are required in building a new home are also necessary for building a room addition.

We can work closely with you to create the design and draw the construction plans. If you have been considering an addition to your home, let us show you what we can do to help you realize your dream.

2-Car Garage Completed

October 26, 2015

We completed the garage on Lamont Street in Fairacres on Saturday. This is no doubt one of the best built garages in the area. OK, maybe that sounds a bit arrogant. Sorry about that! We used the best materials and went to pains to achieve the best workmanship. With a well-finished interior including insulation values normally found in homes, Pella® windows, and top of the line Hormann® garage doors and openers, the cars will have a comfortable existence.


The exterior is Hardiplank® siding with a split-faced block foundation wall and steps. Even though the manufacturer of the roofing on the existing house was sold quite a few years back and the product line changed, we were able to almost perfectly match the garage roof to the house.
