"Having grown up in the industry and through remodeling a couple of my own homes, I know the importance of good design and efficient production. I believe in finding something you can be passionate about and helping others along the way. People want to know they are valued and feel their contribution is meaningful. When that happens, everything works. Happy employees, happy customers."

Dan Flaherty

Service Coordinator

“The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. It is more important than the past, the education, the money, than circumstances, than failure, than successes, than what other people think or say or do. I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% of how I react to it. And so it is with you... we are in charge of our Attitudes.”—Charles Swindoll

Tom Myrick

Director of Marketing & Client Relations

I believe in and am passionate about telling great stories and delivering on brand promises. As a storyteller, I know how important it is to tell a compelling, memorable story. However, all the glitz and bling in the world will never make up for failed promises. In the end, that is pretty much all a business has to offer—a promise of products or services delivered. And, if you can exceed that promise regularly, then you’ve really got a great story to tell.

Tania Katzenmaier

Client Services Assistant

When you truly love what you do, and you're good at it, I really don't think you can call it "work." Instead, when I show up each day with a smile on my face, I like to think of it as more like a hobby with lots of obligations to help people find the answers to what makes their lives measurably better.

Kimberli Abbott

Senior Designer

I love solving problems…including finding the best use of space. My goal in design is to create the perfect space for each client that truly represents them. I like to dig around, ask a lot of questions, and challenge homeowners to put together a custom design that will literally thrill them in the end. That’s not easy of course because remodeling is difficult and emotional for homeowners; my job is to make it less painful and hopefully put a smile on every face.
