This page is under major reconstruction. 

Please excuse the mess while I work to add in many, many new pictures and ideas for the home-owner, DIYer, handyman or contractor. 

Each day I will be making many changes, so come back for more soon.

Not all the links are set yet, so just hold on a little longer...

The following are notes that must be placed with the appropriate pictures above...

This plain apartment-style back yard has been transformed into a very pleasant place to sit back and listen to the amazing sound of running, trickling water in a custom waterfall.

A mediocre carpeted upstairs was transformed into an exquisite showcase of artistic tiling that would grace the most beautiful home anywhere:

This master bathroom had an ugly Formica floor and was greatly upgraded by using the elegance of marble with simple accents of color:

During a project to remodel an entire kitchen, it was almost completely gutted and a custom pantry was designed for the corner where were formerly the cabinets of a normal square kitchen:

An entire kitchen was tiled, including backsplash, counters and floor:

On a custom designed walk-in pantry the tiling process was coming to a close:

... and here are the results of all this tiling work in the kitchen, foyer, living room, steps, etc:

This walk-in pantry adds a great deal of storage to the kitchen 
and makes excellent use of the space if located in the corner. 
In most cases, the cabinets would also have to be modified and it might be a good time to upgrade them: 

Not all houses have such a nicely designed stairway, but most foyers 
will benefit from a very nice medallion in the door entry:

This elevated niche in the foyer adds an elegant look: 

Medallions can be created in many shapes:   

This bar counter made of granite tiles is an elegant and practical way to add more space to accommodate larger gatherings. It can be created between rooms by knocking out a wall or converting a half wall or rail 
(see the original rail below):

Original rail that was replaced by the above granite counter:

A clever hanging storage unit was added to this 2-car garage, along with additional utility lighting:

Garage and interior shelving can help organize any space. This garage below required massive storage capabilities and so aside from stock shelving, a custom rack was designed to hold a car carrier and ladder, which also has space for other longer items like skis and long pipes.

Upgrading dull and drab lights on the garage can have a great look:  

The stream flows under this custom redwood bridge into a pond:

The bridge becomes a major focal point in the landscape:

Adding dashes of color is important:

The pleasure derived from a beautiful landscape should not be underestimated:

How about a custom playhouse? 
Depending on the location, it might not be possible to have one elevated this high, but one could be built up to any height that most any child would love to play inside.
