Shoes, Glasses, and Phones

The last month has tested our limits.  We have completed the new AEROSOLES shoe store in Woodburn OR at the company stores.  We also did a whirlwind weekend renovation of an eye doctors office.  Both of these projects had tight timelines to stick to and we came through with flying colors.  at the same time we were working on an addition in Woodland WA.  The final project that got underway last month was an office tenant improvement in Gresham OR.  We are very excited to have a custom home and some larger remodels coming up in the next few months.

Use the WEB to do your research.

There is no reason for people to go thumbing through page after page in a magazine or book to try and find that perfect look for their home.  In the modern age of technology there is an app for that.  Sites like Houzz and Pinterest llow for people to look up pictures and ideas for what they wish to accomplish around their home.  If you have never been on these sites I need to warn you that there is the potential for you to become addicted to these sites.  Often times we come into projects with the home owner either… Read the Full Post »

In September, we decided to take the plunge and remodel our kitchen and living room. I really didn't have a vision I just knew I wanted change. Aaron came over and shared his ides with us and we were off and running. With Aaron's guidance, we made a decision to tear out the fire place and interior walls. This opened everything thing up into an amazing great-room. His ability to visualize was extraordinary and he worked with my self proclaimed frugalness. ” ~ Upstairs Revitalization

We discovered ACT Construction by word of mouth. Aaron Marvin gave us a bid to replace our old worn flooring that was extremely competitive . The job was more difficult than anticipated because of the way the original flooring was laid. Aaron stuck to his bid. His crew did a wonderful job.” ~ Gary and Diane Benson
