  • Anne the house in the photo are customers of mine! how funny! ive tiled 3 rooms in the house and built a large outdoor building that matches the home. im currently getting ready to remodel a portion of the 2nd floor master bath in august. a little history on the home. it was built in the early 20’s by a local architect who toured a house just like in california, he got the plans and built one here. at least thats how i think the story went… i didnt see there address on your list but the back yard is breath taking. alot of the homes in the area are amazing and beautiful.
