A Little Cabinet Job

A long time friend called and asked if we could install some cabinets for them, install a new washer box, and a new dryer exhaust. The washer box and dryer needed new supply feeds, and the counter top needed some fine-tuning to make it fit. They also asked for a dishwasher to be installed. Oh […]
