Front Door Option!

Very excited to offer a new product, the Front Door vignette! Front Door Sketch – This is your personalized front door with your own decorations and personality.  I generally artistically remove the storm door.  Sometimes I will add the steps and/or porch area or landscaping, depending on how deep.  This drawing is 5” wide x […]


I notice the materials builders use on their projects.  This particular builder, Absolute Construction, used a combination of brick and Board and Batten. The concept of Board and Batten is a system of gapped wide vertial siding boards with narrow overlaying vertical battens to cover the gaps.  It allows for the natural expansion and contraction […]
