Many thanks to Dr. Judson Powers and his staff at Rocky Creek Veterinary Hospital in Greer, SC for a wonderful interior renovation project.
We've thoroughly enjoyed working here over the course of the last year and have come to know some great new people and also a lot of four-legged furry people, too!
Dr. Powers and his staff are doing a great job and the new office plan looks wonderful with another big thanks to architect Doug Hurlbert. Keep up the good work!
Three Questions Owners Should Ask About Their Projects
During the early 90's I was in high school and looking for a summer job.
I was bored of working at the local clothing retail store because I wanted to do something "better" and not push apparel promotions on middle school kids.

All I had to do was make a (ahem...) small investment in inventory.
I will spare the gruesome details, but I failed, miserably. Most of the lessons I learned from that endeavor are applicable to our building clients (and really just to life in general), so here are some questions you can ask before starting a building project for your business.
These will save you from some of the difficulties we often see. Take a look!
