    "I am writing to compliment your employees on a job well done. Bob was very responsive in returning phone calls from the initial contact we made to get preliminary estimates to finish our basement. The foreman was at our house almost every day for two-and-a-half weeks. His work was excellent. He finished everything on or ahead of schedule, left all of the work areas clean, and finished all of the small details to complete the job entirely. Due to the timeliness and quality of their work, we were able to enjoy our finished basement prior to the Thanksgiving holiday as promised."

  • Small Spaces? No Problem!

    With urban living of young couples and families on the rise, the demand for remaking smaller living spaces is on the rise. And demand for decorating those spaces so that they don't appear so small is also increasing at an equal rate to relieve the claustrophobia of cramped spaces. Homeowners and flat-owners alike can benefit from a few small tricks such as paint and mirrors to open up rooms and make their spaces seem such larger than their walls allow. Other tricks include adding vertical storage to draw the eye upwards, which also has the benefit of added storage.

    Use tall furniture and built-ins to draw the eye upward. Scale and shape play a large part in convincing the mind that a room has volume. The flared crown that tops the original overmantel in the master bedroom forces the gaze to pan up to the molding above, making the 9-foot ceiling appear higher. "Higher ceilings always increase the sense of space," says Streaman, "even when you have a limited floor plan."
