In this project, our team seamlessly replaced an older deck, while maintaining its unique double stair design. The homeowners wanted a sustainable and visually appealing solution that complemented the breathtaking view of the golf course and the results speak for themselves.

Instead of opting for composite decking, the homeowners chose cedar decking. Cedar decking, known for its natural beauty, provides a timeless wood look that cannot be replicated by composite materials. Cedar requires no harsh treatments, and this decision aligned with the homeowners' commitment to sustainable living. With proper care, cedar decking can maintain its shine and luster for years.

The project was completed with an Edge custom railing, enhancing both safety and aesthetics. TrueSon's attention to detail ensured that the railing seamlessly integrated with the overall design, creating a cohesive and polished look. Our dedication to meeting the homeowners' specific requirements resulted in a deck replacement that not only maintained the integrity of the original design but also exceeded their expectations in terms of aesthetics and sustainability.

At Trueson, we take pride in transforming spaces, and this project is a great example of high-quality deck design and construction. Our team had the pleasure of working with a returning customer whose existing deck simply did not match the grandeur of their home and the picturesque backdrop of their park-like backyard.

The first phase of the project involved the removal of the existing deck, to allow for a significant expansion. Recognizing the need for a low-maintenance solution, we built the deck with composite decking, ensuring durability and aesthetics that will stand the test of time.

The stairway received a makeover with a widened design, creating a more inviting entrance to the expansive deck. To elevate safety and aesthetics simultaneously, we installed custom powder-coated deck railings, adding a touch of sophistication while ensuring durability against the elements.

Understanding the desire for a versatile outdoor space, we incorporated an innovative under deck system. This addition not only keeps the area beneath the deck dry but also transforms it into a livable space throughout various seasons. To enhance both functionality and ambiance, we integrated lighting and a ceiling fan, providing a comfortable retreat regardless of the weather.

Our commitment to holistic design led us to create a new radius edge concrete pad under the deck. With a broom finish and border, spanning approximately 14'x14', this addition complements the overall aesthetic while providing a functional and stylish space beneath the deck.

Now these homeowners have a stunning, functional expanded deck that serves as a seamless extension of their living space.

Rooted deep in family history, this house was built in 1972 by the homeowners grandpa and has sheltered three generations. This family was ready to make this space their own and asked our team to breathe new life into the old structure.

We completed a comprehensive renovation of the upper, main, and mezzanine levels of the home. We removed the wall dividing the primary communal spaces: living room, dining room, and kitchen. We transformed a once-small sun porch into a more expansive main living and dining space, modified the once-cramped closets to provide more space and utility, and overhauled the primary bathroom and closet, enhancing their functionality and aesthetic. We also repurposed the pre-existing garage into a contemporary home office, and added on a fresh outdoor patio space.

While the home is fondly referred to as "the farmhouse”, the homeowners envisioned a more modern, less rustic feel. The final design brings freshness to the space and prominently features some of their favorite shades of turquoise and teal. Vintage touches like hexagonal black and white tiles and a pre-existing clawfoot tub were seamlessly integrated.

Now, this family has a harmonious mix of boho and organic elements to create a modern, warm, and inviting family home, echoing its history while being perfectly suited for the present.

Our team transformed a dated and tired facade into a European countryside-inspired beauty right in the heart of Columbia. When the family moved in, the need for a new roof was evident. A desire to enhance the stone work, modify the exterior color, and revamp the front porch added to the renovation wishlist. The homeowners collaborated with Anne Tuckley to create a serene and earthy color palette for the home’s exterior design. TrueSon then stepped in to assist with the envisioned transformation. Bringing the refined rustic charm of a distant setting to a city residence, this renovation includes features like new shingles and metal roofing, a complete stone makeover for the entire front facade, and select siding enhancements. The project also integrated decorative stamped concrete work, a redesigned sidewalk, custom garage doors, and a renovated front porch overhang. Key elements like the Douglas Fir woodwork and trim add to the sophisticated charm of the house.

The original design of the house was compact, with what's now an eat-in kitchen previously serving as the sole living room. Set on a secluded road amidst lush woods, the house's unassuming Cape Cod façade hid its potential. Our team extended the entire back wall of the house, transitioning the once-cramped space into a spacious great room. This not only enlarged the living area but also provided ample space for the homeowners to comfortably host their children and grandchildren simultaneously. The vaulted ceilings now give the room a lofty, airy feel, the stone fireplace serves as a centerpiece accentuating the room's grandeur and floor-to-ceiling windows frame the enchanting woodland view and flood the room with natural light. On the exterior of the home, we removed the existing brick and siding on the front of the house and replaced it with new, elegant stone to amplify the home's rustic charm. We also constructed new pillars, installed a modern front door, and complementary shutters to achieve a cohesive and sophisticated look. As soon as you open the front door, you are now welcomed into a breathtaking expansive space that is both luxurious and inviting, making the house an unparalleled woodland retreat.

This home had a screened-in porch that was detached from the living room, and due to its exposure to the outdoors, became a space that was often hot, dusty, and notably dark. This made it an area of their home that was rarely used. They wanted to take their screened-in porch and transform it into a usable space. To make this happen, our team capitalized on the porch's existing footprint, morphing it from an underused exterior space into a functional living area that could double as an office. To bring more natural light into the space, we installed elegant windows, which not only illuminated the space but also provided a scenic view to the outdoors. By incorporating both heating and cooling solutions, we ensured that this area seamlessly merged with the home's existing environment–making the room comfortable for year-round use. We built and installed custom trim and bookcases to provide both functionality and aesthetic appeal, and while the necessity for vinyl flooring arose due to its direct access to the outdoors and deck, careful selection meant it harmoniously matched the rest of the home's wood flooring. Now, this is a serene space that the family can enjoy all year long.

The nice temperatures of fall are setting in, yet on the horizon are the chilly winds of winter. If you’ve found yourself feeling chilly inside your home despite the heater working overtime in the winter months, your windows might be the silent culprits. Aging or damaged windows can often lead to cold drafts and increased energy bills. But did you know that winter is perhaps the best time to address this issue?

Why Windows Matter in Winter

A huge portion of our home's heating gets lost due to inefficient windows. When your windows are compromised, they let warm air out and cold air in. This not only makes your indoor environment uncomfortable but also pushes your HVAC system to work harder. Result? Skyrocketing energy bills.

The statistics say it all: Over half of a home's energy consumption comes from heating and cooling. So, if you're wondering why your energy bills are so high, it's time to inspect those windows.

Winter: The Perfect Time for Window Installation

Contrary to popular belief, winter isn't a hindrance but rather an opportune time for window replacement:

But what about the cold? Well, professional window installers, like those on our team, ensure the installation process is swift and minimally disruptive.

Installation Techniques for Winter Comfort

Six Reasons to Say 'Yes' to Winter Window Replacement

  1. Prevent Mold and Mildew: Old windows can be breeding grounds for mold, especially if they're exposed to moisture.
  2. Save Money: Damaged windows can significantly increase your heating costs.
  3. Detect Window Faults: As mentioned, winter makes it easier to find problematic windows.
  4. Better Pricing: Enjoy off-season discounts and deals.
  5. Enhance Aesthetic Appeal: Improve the look of your home, especially during the holiday season.
  6. Flexible Installation Dates: With fewer bookings, you can choose a date that best suits you.

This family was looking for a way to make their home feel more like a true reflection of their personalities. We completed an entire main-level renovation for this family that gave their home new life. The primary bathroom was quite small and not functional, so we stole some space from the old kitchen pantry to create a more practical layout that made room for a soaker tub and shower and a pocket door that improved functionality. In the kitchen, we added a custom coffee bar in the breakfast nook, gave the kitchen cabinets a fresh coat of paint, installed new quartzite countertops and backsplash, and painted all the walls to create cohesion between the kitchen and living room. To round out the project, we installed new laminate flooring all throughout the main floor. Now, their home is a haven for connection and relaxation.

The family was ready to make their primary bathroom feel like a luxurious getaway, and our team helped turn their vision into a reality. Their old bathroom had a lack of storage space, felt dark and closed in, the shower wasn’t functional, and they were craving an elevated look. We overhauled the entire bathroom by adding an elegant, Japanese soaker tub that is a great focal point, custom shower with unexpected and unique tile, frameless shower doors to give a more open and expansive feel, and floating white oak custom cabinetry by Six Branch Woodworking. We also added a fireplace feature, modern toilet, and gave the homeowners more storage space and outlets. Now, their bathroom is their own personal oasis.

A kitchen remodel can feel like a big undertaking. That’s why it’s important to have a trusted team that can listen to your vision and must haves and make it happen. Stacey, our professional interior design consultant on our team is here to guide you through the process and bring your dream kitchen to life. We’re sharing eight design trends that can transform your kitchen into a stylish and functional space.

Eight Design Trends for Your Kitchen Remodel

1. Embrace the Timeless Elegance of White Kitchens

The classic white kitchen never goes out of style. White cabinetry, countertops, and backsplashes create a clean and bright atmosphere that opens up the space, making it feel more expansive. This trend is versatile and complements various design styles, from modern to traditional. Add a touch of warmth with wooden accents or create a bold contrast with black hardware for a modern twist.

2. Incorporate Smart Storage Solutions

A cluttered kitchen can be frustrating and inefficient. Smart storage solutions are a game-changer, maximizing every inch of your kitchen and keeping it organized. Consider pull-out pantry shelves, deep drawers, and corner carousels to optimize storage space. These features not only enhance functionality but also add a touch of modernity to your kitchen remodel.

3. Introduce a Vibrant Pop of Color

Injecting vibrant colors into your kitchen design can breathe life into the space. Consider bold-colored cabinets or a colorful backsplash to make a statement. Jewel tones like emerald green or sapphire blue add a luxurious touch, while pastel shades create a soft and soothing ambiance. Use colorful accents in decor and accessories to tie the look together.

4. Go Green with Sustainable Materials

As environmental awareness grows, sustainable kitchen designs are becoming increasingly popular. Opt for eco-friendly materials such as reclaimed wood for your cabinets and countertops. Additionally, energy-efficient appliances not only save the planet but also reduce long-term energy costs. Going green in your kitchen remodel is a win-win for both style and sustainability.

5. Embrace Open Shelving

Open shelving is a design trend that allows you to display your kitchenware and decor, adding a personal touch to your space. Not only does it provide easy access to frequently used items, but it also gives the illusion of a more open and airy kitchen. Mix and match your favorite dishes, cookbooks, and plants to create a charming and personalized kitchen display.

6. Focus on Natural Light

Ample natural light can transform the look and feel of your kitchen. Consider adding larger windows or installing a skylight to flood the space with sunlight. Natural light not only makes the kitchen more inviting but also enhances the overall aesthetic of your design. It beautifully complements various design styles and adds a touch of warmth to the space.

7. Blend Old and New Styles

Combining old and new elements can create a unique and inviting kitchen design. Consider blending vintage décor and modern appliances for an eclectic look. Vintage lighting fixtures, reclaimed wooden beams, and antique accessories can add character and charm to your kitchen. This approach allows you to infuse your personality into the design and create a space that feels truly yours.

8. Upgrade Your Kitchen Island

The kitchen island is the focal point of the room and serves as a hub for various activities. Upgrade your island by choosing a stylish countertop material such as quartz or granite. Add bar stools for additional seating, and consider built-in features like a wine rack or cookbook shelves. 

A well-designed kitchen island enhances both functionality and aesthetics.
