14'x16' guest cottage designed to complement a 1910 bungalow in Tampa, FL. The cottage is set on brick piers, has a 5-Vcrimp metal roof, cypress siding and Craftsman design elements. It
has a studio apartment type layout with a sleeping/ living area and a 3/4 bath. There is an option to have a kitchenette, but this unit was built with a storage area instead. It is perfect for housing guests, an elderly parent, or grown children in need of their own space but not yet able to afford their own place.

My church has a mirror on the ceiling which has a giant Chandelier hanging down from it. Looking up it makes me dizzy so I don't want to do it from a tall ladder any suggestions on how to clean the mirror without streaking it.
In the small garden behind the house, the goal was to create a water feature with the millstone as the central focus. After much brainstorming and many sketches, this is what we designed and installed. The water level was lowered for the photograph to display the detail of the brickwork and the center support column. One does not see the liner, wires, or overflow pipes as the fountain is enjoyed. Pre-planning and creative design of all aspects of a feature is what we believe sets
We located a matching brick to the house to create the 7' x 7' basin. A bluestone cap was installed to dress up the top of the wall. This small garden space now has a beautiful water feature that sets it apart from a normal backyard area.
