  About 10 days ago I had about an hour to spare – so I grabbed the camera and spent some quality time on the Yonkers Waterfront.  After writing about the Science Barge and my new feathered friends, I thought it was time to share the waterfront photos.  The area is the southernmost  part of the R...

This was exciting.  I went to go see a customer today to Refinish her hardwood floors and she found us on HGTV.com.  I was pleasantly surprised (especially since I hadn't registered on their site...at least as far as I know).  Apparently, they now have an option where you can find contractors (or...
