Kitchen Renovation Cost Guide

November 16, 2015

The kitchen is one of the most popular rooms to renovate because it yields a high return on investment. Any money you spend on a kitchen renovation is money you can expect to see back in higher resale values. modernkitchen

So, whether you’re building a new kitchen, renovating an existing kitchen or making a few updates, you’re making a sound decision. The average cost for a kitchen renovation depends on many factors — including the size of the kitchen, the quality of the materials and the complexity of the job. Comparing quotes from kitchen remodelers can give you a good idea of your labor costs and help you with your planning. Read More …

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.

I’m Slacking!!!

July 2, 2015

Ok, we’re definitely not slacking on the job, but I have been when it comes to keeping our website updated. We have been very busy the first half of the year with a bath renovation on Old Stage Road in Kingsport and numerous commercial construction projects including several for Domtar Paper, a facelift in the offices of OMYA Inc., several Wal-Mart stores from Rogersville, TN to Pearisburg, VA, and the almost complete Yee-Haw Brewing Company in the old East Tennessee & Western North Carolina railroad depot in Johnson City. At Yee-Haw, we designed and custom built 15 mahogany doors that were installed into five openings as a tri-fold system. The doors will open like bi-fold doors in your home, only the hardware is much stronger and the doors are almost nine feet tall.

In addition to the brewery, there will be a spacious taproom as well as an Asheville-based White Duck Taco Shop. Our custom doors will provide an open-air feel between the taproom and the adjoining patio.

Catching Up!

January 13, 2015

I can’t believe how fast this last year passed and that I have not posted since completion of the basement build-out at Old Island Golf Community. We have had a busy year with quite a few projects for Domtar Paper Company. We are currently renovating a restroom for them.


Last summer, we demolished a very poorly constructed and unsafe deck and rebuilt. It had four levels and lots of steps. As usual, we went beyond code and the new deck is very sturdy and will last for many years to come.

During the past months, we also completed several projects for the City of Kingsport, renovated a bath in White City, completely renovated the first floor of a home in Rotherwood Hills. We are off to a great start and looking forward to 2015!

The basement build-out at the Old Island Golf Community has been complete for over a month so I thought it was about time to add the finish pictures to our Portfolio. There are several pictures including the bedroom, living area, and theater in addition to the kitchen shown here.
