Thankful

For Favorite Places

The White House Inn will always be the Wilmington White House to the Martin & Clara Brown Family. Recently purchased and from our 1st visit under the new ownership, looks to be doing very well!

Is Your Deck Ready for an Upgrade?

If it is, we just had an amazing experience and would like to share it with you.

    1. Home Care
    2. Vacation
    3. Back to Work

This spring has been exciting so far. We were able to give a couple of home projects attention, actually take a real vacation, not catch COVID and, as scheduled, begin our Trex Deck project in close by Sharon, VT. Cheers to all of this!

Starting a project on time is a top priority, always. Luckily, we have allowed a buffer in-between projects, which in this last case, allowed some at home time.

  1. Feature Wall
  • Firewood

2 years ahead on the firewood is always the goal. Do you burn wood? If so, how do you make sure you have enough?
