“The evolution of the kitchen is linked to the invention of the cooking range or stove and the development of water infrastructure capable of supplying water to private homes. Until the 18th century, food was cooked over an open fire. Technical advances in heating food in the 18th and 19th centuries, changed the architecture of the kitchen. Before the advent of modern pipes, water was brought from an outdoor source such as wells, pumps or springs.” Wikipedia

Although Modern kitchen is a far cry of what were its early contraptions, its use and function remain the same – to make us all happy. We are happy to report that we’ve successfully re-modeled many kitchens in our 20+ year history, and that we stand behind our work, design and most of all – you the customer.

A Basement for You

Depending on your lifestyle, situation, location, and most importantly, footprint of your basement. We’ve worked on different types of the concept, and here are few ideas.

A daylight basement, usually on a sloped house  Рwhich in turn makes part of the house below ground, in some cases hidden from the street and view, but which offer walking out without the need of stairs.

A look-out basement, where some of the walls extend above ground. These often have built in windows, and are a must for a basement apartment living.

A cellar basement, often a room in the house below ground used traditionally for storage, but in more recent years, used in more creative ways.

Thank you for taking the time to explore our site. We would love giving you the helping hand in designing and building your new basement. Have a great day.

Bathroom Evolution

Since it’s inception, some say even far back as Babylon was around, sewer systems were invented which truly transformed quality of life. For the first time, people dealt with excrement in a manner that was systematic while minimizing infections and infestations.

Modern ‘throne’ as lot of the male folk like to refer to it, is not much different in its essence to the first design of a hole in the ground and something to sit on. Sure, we have more polish and plushness, and why not. Even the smell is minimized by our cleaners and air fresheners.

A little while later, a concept of washing in the water, a river or a pool, where first elite enjoyed but quickly became public projects where all could relax and rejuvenate.  Modern concepts slowly overtook public bathing in western countries with rise of modern revolution.

Today we enjoy such luxuries every day. Let us work on your bath/bathroom project to bring this quality of craftsmanship, design and quality into your life. Thank you for your interest in us.


From the first recorded mechanical shower, operated by an external mechanical pump, patented in England in 1767, by a William Feetham, to modern day where a water is automatically heated (even on demand with some more modern water heaters), showers have quickly become ‘a necessity we cannot do without’.

When asked, most people would gladly give up other toys before showers and baths. These are true modern luxuries as well as necessities we get our money’s worth out off.
