Water Front Renovations / Radiant Floor Heating

On a recent project having radiant heating In the floor was requested by the client. We installed radiant floor heating under a large tile floor area. During a severe cold spell last winter, as fate would have it, their furnace failed. Much to there delight the radiant floor heating kept this large home comfortable until repairs could be made to the furnace.

Water Front Renovations/Natural Stone Fireplace

On a Recent water front renovation the cottage had been in the family for a long time. The project was centered around a rustic fieldstone fireplace, that held a lot of memories and was very important to the client. We removed and stored the stone prior to demolition, we rebuilt the fireplace and found local stone that we split and worked in. Thus creating a new rustic fireplace, the place for new memories to be made for the next generation.
