Mezzanines make the most of unused space

Soaring ceilings and tall, cathedral-sized windows—the room may look impressive, but ironically, it may have “shortcomings.” Rooms with tall two-story ceilings can feel vast and impersonal—and look like a waste of space. The current trend in home and commercial space is reconfiguring wasted space into living areas. A mezzanine, an intermediate floor created above an existing two-story room, is an ideal solution! A mezzanine makes a space look more inviting and also creates valuable additional floor space.

Dam that Ice! Prepare to Rake your Roof

Following a storm, clearing walkways are important, but removing snow and icicles from roofs also should be a part of your routine. Why? Ice dams!
