To me, nothing is more important than my client's happiness. 


This is my philosophy and I instill it in my whole team. I am an accredited kitchen and bath designer (PKBP) (ACSD). I do not employ sales people, you will always deal directly with me from start to finish. I have been in the construction industry for over 30 years specializing in kitchen and bath remodel. I am a Virginia class A contractor and will be with you through this process from concept to completion.

Step One: Meeting

We will meet you in your home to get acquainted and evaluate your remodeling needs, ideas and your budget.

Step Two: Planning & Design

We then schedule a second visit to present a detailed proposal and estimate along with computer image designs so that you can visualize your project before it begins.
