An Addition of a Different Sort

You may have noticed that the blog has been a little slow in delivering new blog content lately.  It’s not that our projects aren’t moving ahead or any shortage of available content, it’s that our blogger has been slightly sidetracked with a project of her own. Lakeville President (and blogger) welcomed her son Dexter into

Facebook – Stay with Us

Kind Words

Sometimes praise comes from unlikely sources. When working on a project, obviously our priority is to provide our clients with product and services we’ve promised, and do so efficiently.  With the client at the forefront of our thoughts, we still need to navigate the sub-contractors, designers and jurisdiction.  Sometimes there are disagreements, but we always

Ismon Testimonial

Tom and Joyce did a very substantial remodel with us back in 2007.  Their home was one of our REX (Remodeling Excellence) Award winners.  I think it is a real testament to their belief in Lakeville’s work that after this much time has passed, they are willing to do a testimonial for them.  Then again,
