Happy Camper

Thursday, November 7th, 2013

I recently received the note below from a satisfied client:

Hi Wags, Joan, and Katie,

What a joy it was for us to be at the cottage this past summer with the new bunkhouse and renovated cottage!  Each day, we appreciated the expanded space and observed the special touches and thoughtful details you all incorporated in your work.  We again realized how fortunate we were to have the expertise, creativity, and vision of architect, builder, and landscaper who worked together to create such a delightful spot.

The two separate buildings worked so well and the beautiful stonework and landscaping brought them all together.  (What good exercise it was to climb those steps several times a day!)  We understand the fall has brought changing colors to many of the landscape plants.

The location has always been special to our family but now the renovated cottage and new bunkhouse will make it a comfortable and pleasant place to enjoy with family and friends for years to come.

Many thanks to you all – it was wonderful working with you.

Lynn & Bob
