Did you ever wonder what remodeling contractors read when they’re home relaxing? No???? Well, that’s ok, we won’t hold it against you, but Tova and I realized that we actually have pretty interesting piles of books on our bedside tables and thought we’d give you a little glimpse into the inner world of Steve and […]

Just found this again ( Tova had it buried somewhere in her office) Enjoy:
At a recent EMNARI meeting, sponsored by DesignerBath , Tova relaxed in a hand carved sandstone bath tub. If you would like one made for you it can be yours for the bargain price of $22,000. (delivery is extra!) Tova commented that a nice glass of Chardonnay would have been an excellent addition.
We were thrilled to participate in EMNARI (Eastern MA National Association of the Renovation Industry) First Annual Youth Remodeling Career Day. The response was incredible. We had just shy of 500 students participate from more than 30 classrooms around the state. The kids were thoroughly engaged and we have already had many teachers emailing to say […]
For the first time in a while we built something from the ground up. It was fun for the crew to frame and Alex had a blast making the custom barn doors. The shed footprint is 12×16′ and has shelving around it’s perimeter and we designed loft storage space in as well.
Team Steveworks had a great weekend peddling to fundraise for MS.

Yestermorrow and NESEA’s Bottom Lines sponsored a lead carpenter training which focused on the triple bottom line approach ( people/planet/profit) to leading and running a successful project. Leadership skills and communications were taught and reviewed. Both Asher and Alex were […]
So the dog woke up at 3 am and Moxie started woofing and sneezing. I woke up and smelled something odd, was Tova cleaning the oven? No, she was still sleeping next to me. So I got up, walked around the house, the basement, and finally outside. I opened the garage door to find the garage […]
Asher helped out his roommate, Beni Summers, teaching a class on sukkah design. A sukkah is a temporary structure erected during the Jewish holiday of Sukkot, a harvest festival which occurs in the fall here. Asher guided the class in evaluating their sukkah plans based on design, structural integrity and thermal performance, although the last two […]
