2007:  These homeowners discovered the excitement of having a hot water feed line burst in their laundry room. The room was flooded with hot water.  Nick Milo Design Construction (NMDC) was able to come out within a couple of days of the problem occuring.  They removed the old flooring, planed down a board which had been damaged by moisture from a previous leak, and installed the new flooring in one day.  The homeowner repainted the room and within a week from the time of the rupture, their laundry room was completely functional again.  (Public Service Announcement:  waterlines to a washing machine should be routinely inspected, and metal mesh reinforced lines are highly recommended.)

2005/2006:  This 1960s era house had an original three wood panel entryway.  The wood had cracked from lack of care and some of the panels were loose in the framing.  The all red panel is the actual front door.  The windows are in the kitchen, and due to a DIY cabinet replacement, the sills were several inches lower than the countertops, allowing water to penetrate both the window casings and the cabinets from the kitchen sink.  The siding on the house was also rotten to roughly waist height in spots (notice in the Exterior before photo that the siding under the hose has rotted away completely near the ground).  NMDC removed the three panel door, framed in a wall on either side of the new door frame, replaced the front door, replaced the windows with slightly smaller ones, removed the rotten siding, resided the house, and gave the whole thing a more modern paint job.

2005:  The previous owners of this house enjoyed DIY projects, including this fireplace surround they put together using greenboard, chicken wire and spackle.  The current owner thought something a little less "DIY" would improve both the appearances of the room and the functionality of the fireplace as a heat source.  NMDC removed the previous fireplace surround, hearth, mantle and gas log, only to find that the flashing on the roof had rusted through.  Work was stopped until the interior wood dried out, and new flashing was fabricated and installed on the roof.  A furnace rated fireplace and a travertine surround and hearth were installed.  NMDC made and installed a new mantle, as well as installing small can lights for extra lighting.
