A proud mom …



Remember this guy? It’s my middle child (man !) and I introduced you to him a few time before when he took me along on two out-of-town jobs.

He’s a very hard worker and has been self employed all his life. Although the last 3 or 4 years have been tough on the building business he’s been able to keep his head above water and now things are really starting to open up.

This job is a complete renovation of a charming but very run down building. The location is on a busy street just a few miles from our large hospital, so the owner is converting it into Dr’s offices. 
This gives you an idea of the scope of the project: Before:

 

After:
 

And these two pictures show the charm of the building & why the owner felt it was worth rejuvenating:
 
 
 

The new owner is a landscape architect so the courtyard will be his project and I can just imagine how lovely that will be.

This is just one example of Matt’s excellent work but often times I will meet one of his customers and, as soon as they realize that I am his mother, they will tell me about the wonderful job that he did for them. It makes me very proud !
