Restoration & Rehabilitation
        I think of restoration and rehab as almost the same thing. Really the only differences would be with historical. Fire, Storm, Flood, Vandalism, and Historical Restoration are some of the types of work I have done.
New Construction
        I have a fair amount of experience in building new homes. I'm still debating what to put on these pages and don't intend to start building new homes myself in the near future, but I do have photos of some homes I helped build you can look at to get an idea of the type of work I perform.
        I can inspect any property and make a written estimate of needed repairs. This is NOT a "Home Inspection" and I do charge a for the estimate. If you are thinking of purchasing a home for the purpose of fixing it up and reselling it it is a good idea to know how much it will cost to fix it up.
