Just installed decorator ceramic tile on entry, kitchen and dining floors.
Rooms (and a deck) that are larger than the rooms in the multi-story complexes going up in Mountain View.
A new bathroom with ceramic tile around the tub and on the floor and an oak vanity with a granite top and 8 drawers that close themselves.
A haven – a home where you can relax in peace and comfort.
You Like Extras
A keyed storage closet that is 8 feet high – no more storing your canoe or other tall stuff in the corner of the living room.
A deck where you can sit in chair in the shade of a large pine tree at one end and enjoy looking down at the water sparkling in the pool at the other end.
A pocket door slides out of the wall if you want to separate the kitchen from the entry.
Choose one of three colors for an accent wall in the living room.
