Spaulding Remodel

The Spaulding's felt it was time to finish the upstairs of their Cape Home and have two additional bedrooms in place. Their also looking to make a few changes downstairs by having two new exterior doors installed, and creating an opening from the kitchen to the dining room. The opening will provide a more open appearance to the rooms, and also provide a place to eat by having a counter installed for the quick lunch or breakfast.
