On the Level: Permission to Daydream
Did you know that we have 360-degree tours on our website? Click on “Projects,” then click on “360-Degree Portfolio.” There you’ll find more than 10 interactive digital tours of some of our favorite remodeling projects. I recently got an email from a prospective client who said, “I love the 360-degree tours on your site. As the camera panned across room after room, I sat there daydreaming about my remodeling project. What fun!”
Wherever you are right now—enjoying your morning cup of coffee, on your laptop before bed, or checking email in the midst of your busy work day—you have my permission to lose yourself for a few minutes in the 360-degree tours of some lovely homes right here in the Triangle. Happy daydreaming!
I also want to wish everyone a safe and happy Fourth of July. Independence Day is a wonderful opportunity to enjoy our freedoms, friends, family—and, of course, fireworks! Tyler and Phyllis Bennett, featured in this month’s newsletter, will be celebrating July Fourth in their newly remodeled three-season room. If you’re hosting a porch party yourself, try one of this month’s recipes using fresh, seasonal, juicy peaches!

Back for More: A Three-Season Room for Return Clients, the Bennetts
In 2010, Tyler and Phyllis Bennett hired Distinctive Remodeling to renovate their kitchen and closets. Four years later, they’ve converted a back deck to a three-season room and completely gutted and redesigned the master bath. Room by room, the Bennetts are transforming their house into a home they love.
But it’s not just the Bennetts that love their new home. Distinctive Remodeling’s kitchen remodel won a “Best Kitchen” STAR Award in 2010, and both the three-season room and the master bath are submitted for STAR Award consideration this year.
“Winning the award was neat,” says Tyler, “but it is secondary to how much we enjoy the kitchen.”
Phyllis adds: “When you think about the fact that we have entertained and cooked in the kitchen for a few years now—and that we love it just as much today as we did when it was newly completed—it really says something about the quality of the work that Eddie Casanave and his team are capable of.”
Like so many of Distinctive Remodeling’s clients, the Bennetts found out about Eddie through the recommendation of a trusted friend. “We saw how much our friend Sandy loved her kitchen renovation and how Eddie had taken her ideas and made them into a reality for her—and that’s when we knew we wanted to work with Eddie,” says Phyllis. “We did interview a few other companies, but Eddie just felt like the right fit.”
That was in 2010; this time around, says Tyler, “We never even talked to anyone else. As soon as we decided we were ready to move forward with the new porch and bath, we called Distinctive Remodeling.” Read More
Summer Entertaining with the Season's Best
Our very own Kitchen Casanova, Eddie Casanave—inspired by the Bennett’s new three-season porch and the bushels of ripe peaches at his local farmer’s market—is sharing his two favorite summertime peach recipes. “Peaches always remind me of summer,” says Eddie. “When I was a kid, we had a peach and apple orchard and I could not wait for the peaches to ripen so we could make some peach pies and cobblers.”
Try one—or both—of these summertime treats at your July Fourth celebration!
