False Sense of Security

False Sense of Security

Recently there have been a rash of break-ins in my area and the thieves are simply kicking in the doors to gain entry. It is a shame because some of these break-ins are preventable. So I thought I would share with you some of my 30 years of experience installing doors and hardware in various applications from residential to commercial.

Creating Beautiful Ceilings

Creating Beautiful Ceilings

I get to see the inside of a lot of cool homes on a day-to-day basis in my business and the centerpiece of homes these days is fast becoming the kitchen/breakfast room. So it`s no wonder people are finding ways to make the kitchen stand out... and one of my favorite ways is to use old fashion wood to dress up the ceilings.

After building some shutters for what was to be a retail display and shipping them to an address on Madison Ave in New York City, my curiosity got the best of me and I just had to go and see just exactly where they ended up.

I never know what`s gonna walk through my door, and this particular day was no exception. In strolls a wiry, silver-haired gentleman with an unassuming air and quiet voice. The commercial contractor he had hired sent him over to see if we could build a complicated timber framed roof for the front porch of a building that his family was building.

Hinges Matter

Hinges Matter

Sometimes it's a small item in the context of an entire job, but it can make a huge difference in how things work.
