Time to open up the Kitchen

Posted on 7 March, 2016 at 18:32 Comments comments (397)
With Spring on it's way and more sunlight coming in the Windows - It may be time to knock down a few walls and open up your home so you can enjoy it more.  Over the past 20 years there has not been a single job we did where we added a wall!  We are continually taking walls down, especially to the Kitchen area and creating the open concept families today want.  Even if the wall is load bearing, beams can be added in that will hide in ceiling.  The new engineered beams are smaller and stronger creating less need to be seen.

While interest rates are low and housing prices are going up - Now is the perfect time to Remodel.

We see clients continuing to select natural stones, natural woods even cork.  The manufacturers are producing an excellent assortments of products to choose from.  The greatest benefit to the client is that these products are very sustainable.  If you chip, gouge or scratch them, the impact in appearances is minimal and can be repaired easily.

Into another year 2013

Its a new year 2013,
    Winter is still upon us, Right now we are working on a nice size 2nd story addition on a building built in the 50's, I would highly recomend on any homes built during this time w/ a shiplap type sheathing, to get complete engineering and design before you get any costs of doing the project. We scoped out this project and designed it w/ costs w/o any engineering, You would assume that most standard construction practices were still being followed during its time period, to a degree that engineering would not affect the final overall final costs to build. After the engineering was complete on this home the costs of the project went up more than I had expected, costing my clients more than antisipated. We are getting through all these unexpected costs and code issues, On the good note, its moving along well and looking very appealing from the street. The interior will be a very comfortable home to enjoy and relax in w/ a very open design throughout.
   We are also working on some nice bathroom remodels, upgrading and bringing in some new products that we have not used. Large tiles, new elongated floor drain for the shower to be finshed w/ tile. Installing a complete top and sides for a soaker tub w/ a solid surface finish. We are also using the complete showewr stall system by Schluder, using all Kerdi board on the walls, and shower pan and curb stop.We are excited as to the final costs and quality product finish of the Schluder system. For more info on this product go to We are also using the new Cable system under floor heating by Nuheat. That will wield a Solo Thermostat, that is 7 day programable. More info at
  If you are looking at projects for the summer of 2013, please give us a call and schedule a 1 hr. free consultation and feasibility of your project. Thanks for reading and we will see you all out there.Blessings.
 Respectfully   Robert Squires.

36" Refigerators and Carpenter Ants

Posted on 25 February, 2012 at 0:40 Comments comments (326)
This week we wrapped up the contemporary kitchen design and remodel  on the turnagain arm.  The clients were very pleased with solid cherry cabinets, linen textured tile, granite tops and glass accents.
  We learned that the newer 36" wide refigerators are being stuffed so full of insualtion that the sides bow and you need to design with at least another 1/2 inch to accomodate them.
 We also ran into the pantry door opening against the refigerator as it extends another 4" past the cabinets.  The european cabinets give no allowance for clearance.  We will add a chain stop inside so the door will stop just short of touching the refigerator door.
We also ran into two houses with carpenter ants that ate through the garage roofs.  This is a good time of year to take care exterimination of the ants and repairing the damage they caused while they are still dormant.
