Signature Projects

Larkspur Circle, Durham NC

This 1966 ranch came to us needing a complete renovation. We gutted the 1700 square foot south Durham property and added a new roof, HVAC, windows, hardwoods, plumbing, and electrical.

Lansing Drive, Durham NC

This cool split level received the full treatment. The house was built in 1980 and not one feature had been updated since it was constructed. We finished the basement space – adding over 900 square feet.

Cheryl Avenue, Durham NC

The home is open and airy with a rustic charm – 3 bedrooms, 2 baths on one level to meet the needs of almost every buyer. Quality construction that was perfectly designed for the established community where it was built.

Bristlewood Drive, Durham NC

Bringing this E Durham ranch back to life was a treat. We replaced the original flooring with a modern and practical LVP, opened up the floor plan to bring the light in, and updated/upgraded everything!
