Building & Renovation

Everyone is Talking About…. 

EMBRACING NATURAL LIGHT Bring more natural light into your space with this modern take on a traditional favorite! 


This smart skylight is the first to offer built-in, tunable lighting that mimics the ideal color temperature of natural light to provide the right light at the right time. Its unique, connected features make it easy to live better. Awaken opens on all four sides and has a perimeter screen. It’s equipped with smart sensors that automatically shut the unit if it rains. It is one of the largest operating skylights in the market!

COOKING WITH STEAM All the benefits of cooking with steam, without  needing a second appliance!


The AEG Combination Steam Oven features a steam oven and dry heat oven in one, bringing professional cooking right to your home without taking up the space of two appliances. 

Steam ovens use steam to increase the flavor of your meal and prevent it from drying out. Steam can also be used to achieve fluffy, crusty bread. For family gatherings, you can cook a 25 pound turkey on low humidity and create a beautiful climate for a roasted turkey without drying it out too quickly! Having the option to cook with steam or in a regular oven, without doubling up your appliances, ensures you have functionality without sacrificing space!

A BETTER GARAGE SPACE Elevate the garage from storage space to living space designed to fit your lifestyle!


With space at a premium, the garage is no longer just an extra space for random storage. Today’s garage solutions takes the traditional garage and turns it into functional living space designed to suite your lifestyle. This may include custom floors, built in storage solutions, workout space, workshop space, a gathering space for get togethers and so much more! 

When planning your garage renovation, work with an experienced team to create a wish list of activities and storage needs that you would like to have addressed and you’ll be surprised at what your garage can become!

VERSATILE OUTDOOR LIVING Turn your back yard into an extension of your home with livable spaces designed for everyday use!


Outdoor spaces that function as actual living spaces are a growing trend in outdoor design! One of the unique considerations that we face when designing an outdoor living space is handling weather changes. Not only do we need to consider poor weather conditions, but we also need to consider how the area is affected by sun and shade through-out the course of the day. ShadeTree® Retractable Canopy Systems offer exactly the flexibility you need, turning a hot deck or patio into a cool, shaded outdoor room. This allows for hours of enjoyment for your outdoor living space with the flexibility to control how much sun or shade the area receives at any given time! Customizable to suit your needs, retractable canopy systems can be used for small, odd-shaped or large areas up to a 24′ span!

GOURMET OUTDOOR KITCHENS Step up your summer entertaining game with a stunning outdoor kitchen!


Outdoor kitchens are on everyone’s wish list this year! We love this stunning kitchen featuring Dekton’s Pietra Kode designed in collaboration with designer Daniel Germani. The collection reinterprets the timeless beauty of three classic stones: Vicenza stone, Travertine marble and Ceppo di Gré, creating gorgeous surfaces with a modern take on yesteryear! Used in an outdoor kitchen, Pietra Kode creates a stunning space that is easy to maintain and strong enough to stand up to the elements!
