Residential Kitchen under $40,000

Carosella Design Build

The kitchen in this small city row home received a complete transformation.  The painted maple cabinets have contrasting dark accents that flow well with the black and stainless steel appliances.  The natural beauty of the granite counter top and stone backsplash complete the makeover.


Residential Kitchen $40,000 - $80,000

This builders grade kitchen was transformed into a beautiful and functional space that maximized storage and workspace needs. Dura Supreme cabinetry, along with high quality finishes and fixtures throughout, give the kitchen the look the homeowners had always desired.



Residential Kitchen $80,001 - $120,000

Carosella Design Build

Structural issues necessitated a complete tear out of the existing kitchen and dining room area.  Both room were combined to form a spectacular eat in kitchen with cherry cabinets and beautiful granite counter tops.  The professional stainless steel range makes cooking a joy as well as the being the focal point and star of the kitchen.



Residential Bath over $60,000

Pine Street Carpenters, Inc.

This master bath was remodeled into the oasis the homeowners always wanted. This complete gutting of the existing bath helped to create a calming, quiet retreat where the homeowners could truly de-stress and relax in a bright and welcoming space



Residential Addition $100,000 - $250,000

James A. Turner Company

The owners of this sixteen year old elegant home wanted to add additional living space that would allow them to sit, view and experience the outdoor ambiance of their property from within their home.  The conservatory style addition serves as overflow space for family functions and now provides a grand entrance to their outdoor grilling area.

Spring Creek Design

The owners of this 1964 midcentury modern ranch wanted a small breakfast room addition to allow them to enjoy the wonderful view of their pond. The design carefully blends with the original house, with "flying gable" roof overhangs and clean modern lines. A custom glass and steel monobeam staircase provides a connection to the patio below.


This project also won a NARI National CoTY Award for Region 1 Northeast.




Residential Exterior under $100,000 

Hydeck Design Build


This home was sided on three sides and had a limestone/beige colored brick front that was flaking and fading in color. The owners wanted to give the exterior a much needed “facelift”.  So they decided to re-side the house and replace the brick front with real stone which was applied in the same manner of cultured stone.  The home now looks much more elegant.


Entire House $250,000 - $500,000

Spring Creek Design


This sustainable Barn Conversion involved taking this 19th century barn back to its frame, restoring it and converting it to residential use using sustainable building practices. Salvaged & FSC Certified lumber were used. High performance shell is insulated with Spray Foam. Rainwater harvesting irrigates the garden.   This project also received a Green Recognition Award.

Entire House $500,001 - $1,000,000

Brian Walters Factotum, Inc.

This renovation project serves as an educational model for current best practices in the design, construction, and operation of high-performance green buildings and uses high quality, sustainable, and local materials wherever possible.  The project has been Energy Star Certified and will also have a LEED certification.  Among its many modifications, the house now includes a 400 square-foot kitchen addition with

Pennsylvaniacherry wood cabinets with natural quartz and soap stone countertops.  A newly designed patio features recycled stamped concrete. Natural wood and river stones create a tranquil hall bath.  Much of the green technology used in the renovation is “behind the scenes”undefinedInsulStar spray foam insulation from the basement walls to the roof creating an air-tight moisture barrier with the highest R Value available, PEX tubing for plumbing supply and sealed rigid duct work.   We also wanted to create a healthy environment by using low or No VOC products as well as installing an ERV unit to bring fresh air in and stale air out.  This project also received a Green Recognition Award.



Home Theater / Media Room under $150,000

Media Rooms, Inc.

The client wanted and elegant movie palace home theater with traditional design elements to complement the English pub theme that was to be the focus of the balance of the basement. We designed and fabricated in our in-house cabinet shop all of the interior elements including: acoustical wall panels, columns, proscenium and bar counter. All audio/video components were placed in an in-wall closet which was hidden from view by an acoustical wall panel. Speakers are hidden from view in the decorative columns or the proscenium.

This project also won a NARI National CoTY Award for Region 1 Northeast.


Home Theater/Media Room over $150,000

Media Rooms, Inc.

The client wanted a Japanese style home theater and wine cellar/bar to be built in an unused area of the basement. Our design, colors, textures, and materials were all focused on the harmony and natural characteristics of Japanese design. We designed and fabricated in our in house cabinet shop the theater's cherry beams, cypress ceiling, and front wall; the bamboo covered elevator door; the bamboo & cherry bar. Roof tiles, imported from

Japan , were used for the perimeter roof line. All audio/video components were concealed behind the side wall Shoji doors.
