Dr. and Mrs. G. were looking to update their beloved home near the water. They didn’t like the balky, original builder’s basic staircase with turned-balusters, popular in the 1990s, that also absconded the interior view of the home. Avocet’s designer wanted a modern approach that would lend stability and character. The outcome was a cable rail, interior staircase, and handrail that added an open floor plan look with a nautical flair. The area also houses beach art and unique finds that enhance everyday living. Now when you enter the front door, you are met with a showpiece and conversation starter.
Just wanted to say thank you for all your hard work and dedication to our stair project. Even with some challenges, you all remained genuinely interested and committed to a stellar result. Your “over and above” effort is greatly appreciated, as well as your professionalism. – Corey & David G.
Addition: Screen Room & Deck
Mr. & Mrs. M. relocated from California with a young family. They envisioned a paradise for their family to grow and enjoy the outdoors as much as possible. Avocet collaborated with the homeowners to add an addition with a screen porch and deck that ties in seamlessly to the original home and lends safety and access to the inground pool without looking like an afterthought. The screen porch is complete with Trex decking, a tongue & groove ceiling, a television for evening viewing, a large outdoor ceiling fan, and enough space to entertain on large outdoor furniture. The open deck section allows space for a designated grilling area and easy entry into the pool for a worry-free family environment.
The best contractor I’ve ever worked with, that simple! – Kate & Jason M.
Addition: Custom Deck
Mr. & Mrs. W. had a pressure-treated wood deck that was splintering and rotting from age. Avocet collaborated to ensure a design that would give maximum view and functionality to flow into their yard. Using Trex composite decking with low, wide steps and only one section of hand railing truly gave a fantastic view of their beautifully landscaped yard, not only from outside but from all the windows in the house. The open floor plan allowed for creativity with planter pots, furniture, umbrellas, and a dining table. Avocet is a certified Trex Pro Builder, which means you receive an extended material warranty directly from the manufacturer that is not available from big-box stores or local suppliers.
It was a pleasure working with Chris and his staff and crew on our project. They were very responsive and helpful in the planning stage. The crew was impressive and offered amazing craftsmanship. They were always punctual and tidy, the project was completed on time, and the result was beyond our expectations. The office staff was always responsive when we needed to communicate, which was great. Could not recommend them higher! – David W.
