Dan's Instagram Photos

While Dan is busy working on new kitchens and baths to be featured here in the future, here is a sampling of projects from Dan's Instagram page where you can look for new posts.

In his own words: Building is one part creative, bringing an idea to life, to existence in the world; and one part engineering, solving real-world problems, finding the method and materials to produce the product. When you build something with your hands and can step back and admire your work or fix something that presents a challenge the thrill is palpable.

Exceeding customers' expectations, revealing a project to your client, transforming a space that will bring them joy for years to come is about the most rewarding thing one can do for a living.
