new deck installation

Stafford, CT - Our client wanted to remove the metal ramp and have a small deck built in its place.  This is the side entrance to the home and sits at the back part of the driveway.  This is the main entrance into the home and creates easy access to and from vehicles.

Our crew began by dismantling the ramp.  The next step was to cut the driveway, pour two piers (two right corners) to help support this new deck platform.  We built this 8' x 10' base from pressure treated wood and installed Trex Select deck flooring.  The rails are Xpanse (vinyl maintenance free).

We finished up this project by adding one large box step in front and lattice around the edges to keep leaves and debris from collecting under the deck.  We also installed an Azek kick plate below the entrance door.

For our Manchester CT master bathroom remodel, we removed an old jacuzzi tub and added a linen closet and this walk-in shower area complete with bench seat and glass doors.  The low threshold makes it easier to step into the shower area, perfect for those who want to stay in their home (aging in place).  

Deck Replacement

In Vernon CT, this back deck got a make over.  We removed all deck boards, rails, posts and stairs.  Pressure treated lumber was used for the base floor, the post beams and stair treads. We installed Azek skirt boarding and an Xpanse vinyl rail system & post sleeve covers for a long lasting deck area.

Front Entry Door

When we replaced this front entry door in Ellington CT, it turned out to be a beautiful transition.  The homeowners decided to change it from a black & white colored entrance area to this deep color with the stone surround.  Keeping the  two sidelights and the transom above the door continues to allow the natural light to come inside. 

Garage Door Replacement

A simple change made all the difference out in Manchester CT.  We replaced the original garage door with a new, larger one and installed an opener.  Now it is much easier to use allowing plenty of room for their vehicle and movement inside the garage.  While we were there, the homeowners wanted us to replace the regular entrance door as well.

Sliding Glass Door Installation

In Stafford CT we took out a regular size entrance door and replaced it with this  9' four panel sliding glass door.  They now have a fantastic view to the lake as well as an easy entrance in and out of the house during the busy summer months.  The homeowner will finish up the siding this spring.

We were privileged to be a part of this community project in building an amphitheater at Hyde Park in Stafford CT.  Many outdoor music concerts are held here along with the Blues Fest which is put on by the Friends of Hyde Park in early August each year.   A wonderful place for all to enjoy for years to come! 

Tenant Fit-Out

historic renovations

Repairs & Renovations to Historic Barn


Over the summer, we headed out to Suffield CT to complete some repairs and renovations on this historic barn.  Once the homeowner's paint the whole barn, it will look beautiful & the restoration complete!

Repairs & New Garage Doors


A portion of our work was to replace any rotted wood in this historic structure.  We used rough sawn wood for the replacement pieces to keep with the older and weathered look of the rest of the building.  New garage doors were installed to bring some ease of use to the barn which will be used for vehicle storage.

Stone Drainage Areas


While we were working on the repairs and installation of garage doors, we created this stone drainage area.  The intent for this is to help keep the water away from the new garage doors and minimize the rotting of wood in the future.
