We are moved into our new facility at 1875 W 275 N in Angola Indiana and have been very busy setting up our shop area and now finally making time to work on getting our showroom ready for all our new display items we plan to showcase.

Sullivans Kitchen Upgrade

Sullivan Kitchen Upgrade This was a very nice kitchen counter upgrade project we did for some very nice people in Fort Wayne. The neat thing here is that I not only went to school with Danielle some 24 years plus, but we both went to 2 different schools together- Hamilton and Garrett. Years later who knew I would be making these countertops for such a nice gal and her family! — in Fort Wayne, IN. Here you can see the beautiful color movement we made with 3 different tones of acid stain. This is one of my...

Gold Coast on Crooked Lake

Here we made a custom outdoor grilling center where grilling  can be had anytime of the day or year. Designing a two post style sunshade overhead allows for grilling out whether it be raining or snowing, and with the lighting we placed overhead the grill makes for knowing if your cooking medium rare or well done. Countertop edge is our signature Tree Bark texture. We also made a base trim and towel and utensil holder that has the Tree Bark edge texture to give some nice detail and balance. The base unit is a treated pine construction with a...

We were brought in to give the bar area a unique bar top that would fit the atmosphere and style. The counters and foot rest we made has 4 different colors of...
