Rhode Island Porch Restoration

Here is another project completed in Rhode Island. The initial prognosis was to replace some rotten deck framing, but we discovered rot at the base of two other columns and rot in the handrail. The client also decided to replace the existing decking which we used tiger claw hidden fasteners to give the deck a more elegant look. So the resulting project was a completely new porch from the existing brick foundation up.


Stained Glass Work

Here are a few of the stained glass pieces we have been contracted to build. The door piece was for a property located in Southern Vermont, this includes a piece of roof slate at the center of the piece. The circular piece (which is still under construction) is a commissioned piece for a private client. We also restore existing stained glass windows to their former glory as needed.

In the end, the character of a civilization is encased in its structures.

Manchester Village Vermont Renovation

This renovation was done without the help of an architect. The client had a clear vision about what she wanted to achieve and we helped her manifest that vision. The original interior trim work was all heavily varnished clam shell door and window trim. The overall vision was to remove all the trim work, carpet , rebuild three bathrooms, a new kitchen and install new trim throughout the house with a new ash hardwood floor. Five years later we returned to remove the existing cedar shingle roof and replace it with clear pressure treated hand split cedar shakes from British Columbia.


Here is a short video of a total interior restoration we completed in Providence Rhode Island. This video shows the mostly completed framing portion with the closed cell and blown in cellulose insulation.You will see that running a video camera is not one of our specialties so please excuse any video quality issues.
