Our Green Commitment

Green Lakeside Retreat ImageThe word “green” is at the forefront of many peoples’ vocabulary these days. We’re proud to say we’ve had an environmentally responsible approach to our work since the beginning, even before it was fashionable.  Whether it is through thoughtful design, researching and sourcing efficient appliances and materials, or responsible disposal of waste, we remain committed to practicing an earth-friendly approach in all we do.

Our staff is happy to visit with you regarding your concerns and questions pertaining to an environmentally responsible approach to your project. We like to think of remodeling as the ultimate in recycling. By reinvesting in your home, and reusing your space in new and efficient ways, your remodeling project will ensure a minimum “footprint” with maximum rewards.
