CrossWorks Carpentry.."Where Every Nail Has a Purpose"
This addition will be designed for convenience and comfort. The comfort of a family space to enjoy the warmth of a gas fireplace nestled in the corner, while having the feeling of being in a wide open space with a cathedral ceiling and recessed lights for ambiance. Then again, the room will also serve as a convenience to the often difficult task of having to go down to the basement to do laundry. However, now the washer & dryer will be just around the corner, tucked away in a closet. A new 8 x 16 deck will provide plenty of enjoyable barbeques and family gatherings.

Parting Words from the Coltons
Mike completed an addition to our house recently and we are extremely pleased with the results. His timeliness, attention to detail, concern for our comfort level throughout the project, and excellent workmanship resulted in a beautiful room and deck that we couldn't be happier with. Mike provided us with a schedule of construction and stuck to it almost to the minute. If something came up to throw it off, he let us know ahead of time and found ways to work around the delays. It was a real pleasure to work with such an honest, conscientious, and affable person. He showed concern every step of the way for what would be best for us and the project; and did a wonderful job of making the new construction fit well with the existing house. We have great respect for Mike and highly recommend him.
