    "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."

  • Feng Shui: Great Ways to Use Mirrors

    [caption id="attachment_6363" align="alignleft" width="275" caption="Mirror Design"]Design[/caption]

    Mirrors are a great design item because they can be used in any area of the house. Here are some tips for incorporating mirrors in your home for a great design aesthetic:

    Mosaic Mirrors
    Mirror shards are a great way to liven up a mosaic. If you enjoy craft projects, then a Moroccan-style table top or wall panel---using colored tiles interspersed with pieces of broken mirror---is a good way to add interest to a sun-room.

    Antique Mirrors
    Old, spotted mirrors provide Old World charm. They are perfect for adding a Gothic touch to an interior. Collect old mirrors at flea markets and yard sales. Hang them in groups and in corners to create a cloudy, time-worn elegance. Do not worry about try matching the frames; mismatching plain and ornate mirrors is the epitome of shabby-chic.

    Frame Decorating
    Where mirrors are used in a themed room---such as a sea-shore inspired bathroom---decorating a plain mirror frame using sea shells, sea glass and small bits of driftwood will add to the seaside charm.
