So-- time for a little somethin’ somethin’. Whether it’s big {Betty longs for a mudroom} or a dash {new sofa pillows please!}
Here are some services that are sure to inspire. Best of all?   You don’t have to wait- they’re all local-

Clyde Hogan


Clyde Hogan Fine Art was created by John Lawler as a natural extension of his interest in collecting, creating, and appreciating painting, drawing, and photography. Our goal in this venture is to support both the collector and the artist by providing the public with new and accessible artworks for purchase that will enhance many environments and stimulate the creative spark. The artwork is shown in a casual, no-pressure environment, during open house afternoons or by appointment.

Burnham Builders


[by 3 customers, now fans] Ben Burnham can do any size job from powder room to whole house renovation. He has great attention to detail and he’s one of those guys that’s easy to have at your house despite the chaos of the kids, the dog, and the remodel. He’s tidy, on-task, manages the sub-contractors with ease, and hey- not bad to look at either [don’t tell your husband].
