On the Level: NC Design Online Featuring Us
We’re published! North Carolina Design Online has featured one of our newly remodeled homes in a brand new article entitled, “For This Raleigh Remodeler, The Small Details Become The Difference Between A Good Kitchen And A Great Kitchen.” Empty nesters Chuck & Sharon Robinson made over their most loved room--the kitchen--into a well appointed space to cook, entertain and relax. See lots of up-close photos of features like the appliance garage and roll-out shelving in the NC Design Online article.
Last month, I told you that I would be serving us sizzling shrimp scampi and crab stuffed mushrooms at the Edwards home. See the pictures of our big night here.
Also, Harley says thanks to all his Facebook fans. Many of you have met Harley in real life since he often comes to work with me, but to those of you who are new to Harley and his story, thanks for taking the time to get to know our boy!
P.S. The Robinson home is also featured in this year’s Remodelers Home Tour. See more about that event to the right.

Simply the Best: Danver Stainless Outdoor Kitchens
No matter who does the grilling, everybody loves a clean, functional, appealing outdoor kitchen. “The more I learn about outdoor kitchen solutions,” says Eddie Casanave of Distinctive Remodeling, “the more I like the Danver line.” Citing the quality, flexibility of design and lifespan of stainless steel over alternatives like plastic or stone veneer, Casanave has begun recommending Danver stainless outdoor kitchens to his customers shopping for outdoor kitchen solutions.
“Longevity and appearance are important in outdoor kitchens, and plastic just doesn’t hold up well,” says Casanave. “Plastic may start to sag after a year or two and the UV rays of the sun can be problematic.” And what about stone veneer? Sounds attractive--and it can be--but Casanave points to the inferior features of the internal box to which the stone veneer is applied. “These pre-fab boxes and inserts just don’t have the luxuries we have come to expect from our kitchen cabinets. The fact is, my customers want the same features outside that they have inside--like soft close drawers, soft close doors, and well-planned interior shelving. I have found that, with Danver, outdoor cabinetry can be just as nice as indoor cabinetry.” Read More
