Antonio Sabato, Jr.

Antonio Sabato, Jr.

Antonio Sabato Jr. once overlooked Time Square from a 90-foot billboard dressed only in his Calvin Klein underwear.  The iconic fashion designer hired the actor to be the company’s first celebrity model since Mark Wahlberg and it was shot by famed photographer, Herb Ritts.  That combination caused a sensation when the photos appeared in every magazine and hundreds of billboards throughout the world. 

Since then, Antonio has had a long and varied career which most recently has included guest-starring roles on ABC's, Castle, ABC Family’s Baby Daddy, as well as on Bones and Hot In Cleveland. He will soon be seen in Investigation Discovery’s Heartbreakers, FX's The League and this fall, tune it to see him host his own nationally syndicated series Fix It & Finish It.  Every weekday beginning September 8th, Fix It & Finish It will take viewers around the country to find homes, cabins, RV’s and even tree houses that need a makeover both inside and out.  Antonio and his team of contractors and designers will go in and do their magic all in one day with renovation results that astound and that also change lives.

Other credits include TNT's, Rizzoli & Isles, CBS’s, CSI: New York and NCIS, ABC’s comedy Scrubs and Ugly Betty. He also played Heather Locklear’s abusive ex-husband in a six-episode arc on Melrose Place and appeared on Charmed, Ally McBeal and The Help. He had his own reality series, My Antonio, for VH1. He won NBC's Celebrity Circus where he performed nearly impossible “Cirque du Soleil-esque” acts then followed that up with a win on Fox's diving special, Stars In Danger in 2014.  

Antonio was seen in in Little Women, Big Cars II, director Penelope Spheeris’ comedy Balls to the Wall and he had a cameo role in the Farrelly brothers hit film, The Three Stooges.  Antonio played the lead role as serial killer Henry Lee Lucas in the indie feature Drifter: The Henry Lee Lucas Story, for which he won Best Actor at The 2009 Beverly Hills Film Festival and he starred opposite Mark Wahlberg and Lou Diamond Phillips in The Big Hit.

His big break came when he was cast in the infamous Janet Jackson video “Love Will Never Do Without You,” shot by Herb Ritts. Everything started, however, when Antonio joined the cast of ABC’s General Hospital in the spring of 1992.  The show jumped from seventh to third in the daytime Nielsen ratings. That same year, Antonio landed a coveted spot in People Magazine’s “50 Most Beautiful People” issue.  Antonio reprised his famed General Hospital character, Jagger Cates on SoapNet’s Night Shift  and also starred on the popular CBS daytime drama The Bold and the Beautiful playing a role created specifically for him.

Growing up in Rome, Antonio’s first language is Italian and he didn’t learn to speak English until he moved to Beverly Hills in 1984 with his mom and sister.  He is a fitness and auto-racing enthusiast, and an accomplished author (No Excuses: Workout for Life). He is an avid tweeter with over 500,000 followers.  Antonio currently resides in Los Angeles where he enjoys spending time with his wife, Cheryl and children, Jack, Mina, and toddler son Antonio Kamakana.

Trace Your Space Designs

Trace Your Space Designs

Interior Design was my second Degree and my second Career. My love and talent for design became evident at an early age. Creating art, decorating and rearranging spaces was more than a hobby, but a passion that has never been extinguished.

My first career of 15 years providing Physical Therapy in nursing homes was the time that I really developed my skills of listening and seeing people, places, and things as opportunities to improve, rebuild and harmonize.

I love people and I love how I can affect people by improving their spaces. Like a child I will never grow weary of playing and creating, continuing the business to surprise.

Carhartt

Carhartt

Hamilton Carhartt was born in 1855 in Macedon Lock, New York. He grew up in Southern Michigan and his entrepreneurial style was reflected in the modifying of his last name by adding an extra "t" to ensure he would stand out from other businessmen. He initially established a furnishing business which would continue to drive his ambition to succeed and lead him to create his own products.

With some helpful advice from his first potential buyer, he realized his products had to be different. After talking with a railroad engineer, he created an overall garment specifically for the railroad worker which had never been made before. Hamilton Carhartt founded his namesake company in 1889 and began making work wear with a single goal in mind: Set a standard of excellence to which all others would aspire. Starting with only 4 sewing machines and about 5 employees, the first products manufactured were overalls in duck and denim fabrics. By traveling from town to town and visiting each railroad division, he was able to establish himself in the overall business. With entrepreneurial vision and determination, Hamilton Carhartt established a brand that has stood the test of time.

The Great Depression had a devastating effect on Carhartt resulting in only three plants remaining in the U.S. after 1930. Hamilton and his son Wylie established the "Back to the Land" campaign leading to the joint opening of the Irvine, Kentucky operations with the towns people of Irvine. Carhartt's Manufacturing Administrative offices are still located in Irvine, Kentucky today.

We grew throughout the early 1900's establishing more than 17 plants and three mills throughout the United States, Canada, and Europe. "From the mill to millions" was our motto and was reflected in our operations which included cotton production, denim mills and apparel manufacturing facilities. Carhartt Master Cloth was designed and woven especially by our mills for use in Carhartt garments and was pledged to be the best cloth that could be produced.

Hamilton Carhartt passed away in 1937 at the age of 82. Today, his company remains a family owned operation committed to the mission of providing Best-in-Class apparel for the active worker.

"I believe that when a man wears an article that I manufacture, his self-respect is increased because he knows that it is made by an honest manufacturer, who is honest with his employees" - Hamilton Carhartt

Harriet Cochran Treitz

“A Natural eye for Color and Space”

Harriet Cochran Treitz is a native Louisvillian with deep ancestral roots that go back many generations in Kentucky. This is the foundation that has given her the “natural” talent expressed in interior design.

Harriet’s ancestry stems from many generations that gave much flavor to Louisville tradesmen such as her Great-Great Grandfather Theopolis Conrad of the Conrad-Caldwell House and Lemon & Sons in the silver trade. The book series “The Little Colonel” by Annie Fellows Johnson was based on the lives of her Grandmother Hattie Cochran Dick and her Great-Great Grandfather Colonel George Washington Weissinger.

As a young child she was exposed to the arts through her esteemed mother, Mary Anne Tyler “Ming Dick”, a well known interior designer involved in the Louisville Children’s Theatre, Kentucky Opera, Junior League and Bittner’s interiors. Her father, Albert Conrad Dick, a respected builder and developer, taught her space planning.

Attending Stephens College, she obtained a BFA in art and photography. After many apprenticeships in her youth, she spent 22 years as a designer with Bittner’s followed by 8 years with the Lee W. Robinson Company.

Harriet’s works are well known. She has been published in Sophisticated Living Magazine 5 times, she has set stages for 10 years for the Kentucky Authors Forum, featured in Homearama homes and the Bellarmine show house. All of these works show the many elements and vast styles of interior design. She has the ability to give a unique expression of energy of lifestyle, comfort and style that completes a home to be “lived” in by her clients.

The Stockyard

ABOUT THE STOCKYARD...

The Stockyard has been family owned and operated since 1989, filling a need for a wholesale nursery where landscapers could come and buy quality stock at low prices. The Stockyard Horticultural Supply handles large specimen material that is hard to find as well as the basic shrubs and trees. The prices are low so volume is high. This allows the inventory to rotate at a rapid rate and ensures freshness and quality.

So many of our landscape contractors recommended The Stockyard to their clients that we opened to the retail public in 1992. Although we are set up for the landscape contractor, retail customers are always welcome on a self service basis.

Vista Professional

Vista Professional

When founder and president Dan Cuñado founded Vista Professional Outdoor Lighting in his garage in 1984, he couldn’t have predicted the company’s success 30 years later. As a child growing up in Cuba, Cuñado always checked products for the small inscription stating where they were made, hoping “Made in America” would be staring back at him. He valued the quality the words embodied and channeled this passion into founding his company.

Today Vista is a leading supplier and innovator in the architectural and landscape lighting industry. For three decades, Vista has designed, manufactured and supplied a wide range of distinctive lighting fixtures, transformers, HID ballasts and accessories for both the low-voltage and line-voltage lighting markets.

High-Quality, American-Made Products

Vista’s range of designs and finishes are an ideal compliment to residential, commercial, public area, resort and institutional applications. All of Vista’s products are custom built at the company’s Simi Valley, Calif., headquarters and shipped within 24 hours from the receipt of the distributor’s order.

The innovative company has a well-established reputation among lighting designers, engineers, architects, distributors, contractors and property owners for delivering high-quality products and providing outstanding customer support. More than 2,500 distributor locations worldwide stock Vista products and provide local product support.

Why Landscape Lighting?

Today’s homeowners see their landscape as a source of pride, a refuge for relaxation and a place to enjoy good times with family and friends. Vista products bring these spaces to life after the sun goes down, providing an unmatched aesthetic effect while enhancing:

·       Beautification: Focal points stand out. Textures suddenly become detailed and eye-catching. Architectural and landscape features can be accented and admired even after dark.

·       Usability: Lighting extends time spent outdoors and allows homeowners to take advantage of pools, patios, play areas and entertainment spaces.

·       Safety: Illuminating hazards like steps, low-hanging or thorny vegetation and debris in walkways keeps homeowners and visitors safe.

·       Security: Well-lit homes and landscapes deter potential intruders by eliminating dark and shadowy areas.

·       Value: Landscape lighting provides excellent return on investment and creates a stunning first impression.

Why Architectural Lighting?

The addition of architectural-grade lighting to a project adds a new dimension of beauty, safety, security and usability. Whether the application is commercial, industrial, institutional, or a public area, Vista products can help today’s professional designers deliver on the toughest requirements. Each Vista architectural-grade fixture is designed for maximum efficiency and easiest ongoing maintenance for the lowest total cost in both installation and everyday use.

Adding architectural lighting can set the mood and enhance an atmosphere, creating a work of art out of a building’s facade. Promote relaxation or energize patrons with subtle or vibrant light. Illuminate plantings, signage, unique architectural features and pathways. Architectural lighting also increases safety and security of a building.

About the Artist…

John Willcoxon, a native of Greenwood, a town on east side of the delta bordered by the Tallahatchie & Yazoo Rivers. The youngest of four siblings raised by wonderful Christian parents. He inherited his love of tinkering with things from his Daddy and his gift of gab from his Momma.

Inspiration for his work comes from his love of people. Fascination with and how they relate to each other, they inspire him. His love of old things, history, simple pleasures, the truths of scripture, friends, outdoors and looking for things that other people don’t see. John likes to take broken things and repurpose them, something from he learned from his depression era Daddy that could fix anything. He self-describes this way…. “ My parents are from Arkansas, moved to Mississippi and had me late in life, so…… I am the tail end of the gene pool. It gets no worst than this. I remember riding my bike behind the Mosquito truck as a kid, the smell of farm chemicals being sucked into the house by an attic fan and the taste of lead paint.” Probably explains a lot…

John started his college career at Mississippi State University, transferring to Delta State to finish with a degree in Aviation. After a corporate career with FedEx, owning a sign business, and being a workforce consultant, John is giving the left-brain a break and indulging the right brain with some creativity. Solomon’s Ecclesiastes is among his favorite writings. Solomon’s declaration after indulging in everything life has to offer reads… “It is meaningless, chasing after the wind, in the end, fear God and keep his commandments”. John would say, “ I have chased a lot of wind. I don’t want to chase wind anymore. My mantra going forward is to love and be loved. “  He resides in Hernando, Mississippi. John has four wonderful children of his own, Jennifer, Jake, Julia & Josh. His oldest, Jennifer is a resident of heaven.

We, Melissa and Steven, met 12 years ago.  We recently moved into Melissa's parents home.  It had been empty for six years.  At our whits end and completely overwhelmed, we didn't know where to start renovating the home to make it ours and not feel like we're living in my parents home.  The living room originally was a miss-mash of hand-me-downs and the entire home was a mix of Melissa's parents and grandparents, who also lived in the home, and now our stuff.  We both have large families and enjoy having a place for our friends and family to come visit and relax, but the home just wasn't very inviting. 

Steven and I feel like we've won the lottery with our Fix It & Finish It makeover of our living room.  It is now a beautiful place to relax and have friends and family over to visit.  Antonio and crew were the most wonderful, polite, and friendly group.  It was funny leaving for about five hours while they put our living room back together and not even worrying about 35 strangers traipsing through our home.  I feel like all of them were long time friends.  Antonio is very down to earth and hard working.  There was one time when I noticed Antonio was working while no one else was and there was no camera filming.  The designer, Robin Sweeney, did an outstanding job at picking out what we would love, but yet managed to keep it secret. 

Kudos to you and your crew.  We will fondly remember that day for the rest of our lives.

Back in 1955, Albert Cook, his wife Eleanora (known as Cookie) and their three young sons started their plumbing company out of their home with only one truck and a slogan Dependable Service at Reasonable Prices.  With a prospering business in 1957, Albert moved his firm to a storefront building at 1013 East Parkway, across from the old Fairgrounds, Merry-Go-Round, once known as Liberty land.  As business continued to grow, the Cooks moved to a larger location at 2101 Central Avenue in 1964, which formerly housed the Bluff City Lumber Company.

During this era, Albert Cook Plumbing used a radio jingle with the words, King of the Kitchen and Prince of the Bath. This jingle became popular all over Memphis and prompted customers to call the business and ask for Prince Albert, an apt name for Mr. Cook.  In the late 1960s through the 1970s, Albert Cook Plumbing was considered one of - if not the largest plumbing company in the southeastern United States, with more than 100 employees.

Mr. Cook celebrated his 87th birthday this year and is still the figure-head of his business that is now run by four of his children; Wayne, Gary, Bobby Cook and their sister and brother-in-law, Eddie and Patty Nelius.  Recently, Albert was on-hand for a ribbon cutting in honor of his business becoming a member of the Germantown Chamber of Commerce on November 3. This was a true celebration for Mr. Cook, his family and the business he and his wife started many years ago.

Albert Cook Plumbing currently works in Shelby, Tipton and Fayette Counties in Tennessee and in DeSoto and Marshall Counties in Mississippi.  Handling all plumbing work from repair to new installation in both commercial and residential, you can’t go wrong by calling Albert’s business.  It's a sure bet the Prince of Plumbing will treat you like family.

Northeast Factory Direct

Northeast Factory Direct

At Northeast Factory Direct, you never pay for a salesperson’s commission when buying wholesale home furniture in Cleveland. And there’s not added charges for expensive store fronts when you buy things like wholesale spas and wholesale bar furniture from us. You also won’t have to pay extra for individual per item shipping costs on wholesale home furniture or wholesale billiards tables. And you won’t have to pay for the biggest culprit when it comes to purchasing wholesale bar furniture and wholesale hot tubs in Cleveland: high cost media and advertising. It is that kind of overhead that usually drives prices on other so-called wholesale home furniture stores through the roof.

If you ever see a TV ad or hear radio advertising from us, you can be rest assured that it’s sponsored by our wholesale home furniture product manufacturers due to our performance to further increase product exposure and has no bearing on your final wholesale home furniture consumer cost. We have hand picked a few exclusive relationships with wholesale bar furniture and wholesale spas manufacturers that meet our rigid quality standards for wholesale pool tables, wholesale spas and wholesale home furniture. This keeps us from spending the majority of our time dealing with angry customers, workmanship issues or warranty complaints. We like to spend our time marketing and delivering the best wholesale home furniture product to satisfied clients.

Maetsche Family

Maetsche Family

(Klein, Maggie, Harrison, and baby #2 due in February) With a two bedroom home and a baby on the way, we decided to convert our existing dining room into a bedroom for our oldest so the new baby could have the nursery. The garage was an awkward space. It was the only access to our basement, which meant we had to go through a cold, unfinished space to get back into a finished space downstairs. Also, the washer and dryer were in the garage, which made winter laundering inconvenient and very cold. Antonio, Nicki Huggins, and the crew installed heating and air, gave us beautiful flooring, and made a room so perfect it’s worthy of a magazine cover! Nicki’s design perfectly blends Klein’s modern taste with Maggie’s preference for something more rustic.

We are big football fans. One beautiful Sunday following the renovation, we had friends and family over to watch football. We moved our TV to the dining room for the day, and the weather was so perfect that we opened the garage door while we ate and enjoyed the games together. We had such a fantastic time entertaining in our new indoor/outdoor space!

History of Pop-A-Lock New Orleans

Pop-A-Lock of New Orleans opened in 1993 as a “Car Door Unlocking Company” and introduced Pop-A-Locks’ signature Emergency Car Door Unlocking (EDU) service as a free public service to the New Orleans Metro Area. By 1998 the company had 8 full time employees and its’ EDU service had become a critical component of the areas 911 emergency response system, averaging over 30 EDU’s per month. The company’s services expanded to Roadside Assistance services including tire changes, jump-starts and fuel deliveries.

In response to requests from customers the company began offering Automotive Locksmith, Residential Locksmith, and Commercial Locksmith services in 2000 to the greater New Orleans Metro area. By 2004, the company employed 12 – Car Door Unlocking Technicians and 3 – full-time locksmiths.   Late 2004 the company was acquired from the founders by Tulane University graduate and Board Certified Safety Professional, Paul H. Sewall.

August 29, 2005 arrived with a bang called Hurricane Katrina. The mandatory evacuation of the city forced the company to cease operations until early October of 2005 when Jefferson Parish allowed companies offering “critical services” to re-open.   Pop-A-Lock re-opened for business in October 2005. By early 2006 the majority of the company’s employees had returned to the New Orleans area and to Pop-A-Lock New Orleans. Today, Pop-A-Lock New Orleans continues its history as one of the most successful franchisees in the Pop-A-Lock system.

The majority of our 20+ employees are Licensed Locksmiths and Pop-A-Lock still provides Emergency Car Door Unlocking (EDU) as a free public service.

Cowboy Maloney's

Cowboy Maloney's

n 1952, Cowboy Maloney’s was born, a lumber yard selling built-in appliances for new homes. We quickly evolved to a full line appliance dealer and from there became a TV dealer when the first television station came on line in Mississippi. We were founded with the realization that, as a Mississippi company, we would be held to a higher set of standards. We strive to exceed customer’s expectations. Our major goal is not to ask for business because we're the home team, but to match or beat any price in the market place plus stand behind every product that a customer stands in front of.

In 1991, Cowboy Maloney’s purchased Electric City from the Southern Company. With more locations, and joining NATM, the nation’s premier buying group of only 12 dealers, we became a major regional retailer able to compete with all national competition and still give personal service to our neighbors.

From Cowboy, who got his nickname from his appliance corral, and Dolly Mom who ran the office, to 13-year-old son Con who worked in the lumber yard, Cowboy Maloney’s Electric City has grown to over 200 associates with multiple locations, more than 40 delivery trucks, and our own electronic service department. We are the only major company in the Jackson market who has a service department.

Having sold the first DirecTV Satellite and the first Sirius Car Audio System ever sold in the U.S.A., we are indeed recognized nationally as being on the cutting edge.

With all this said, the three brothers, Con, Eddie, and Johnny, with their last name on the building, want to keep customers first.

Mod Fire

Mod Fire

Modfire is the dream of two friends from Indiana, Brandon Williams and Marty Young. Although they grew up no more than 20 miles apart, Brandon and Marty met for the first time when they were living in the Bucktown neighborhood of Chicago in 2005. They bonded over their similar histories growing up in small town Indiana and shared dreams of building a business focused on beautiful design.

In those early days, Brandon worked on custom steel installations in upscale Chicago loft spaces and north side restaurants. He founded a steel studio in Bucktown and turned out amazing one of a kind works. Marty spent his days consulting – advising other people on how to build and grow their businesses – and evenings creating steel furniture in Brandon’s studio.

It would be six years and several moves later before their original dreams crystallized around a modern fireplace design and a warehouse studio in Phoenix, AZ. It was there that Brandon’s design and Marty’s business model joined to form Modfire.

That Phoenix studio was the incubator for the original Urbanfire prototypes – a blend of Chicago urban loft style and Phoenix mid-century architecture. Each piece was hand finished by Brandon. Today, several steel artisans work alongside Brandon and Marty fabricating every piece created by Modfire in that same studio.

Although the company has grown in size and now has several products in production (and many more on their design board), it remains a very hands-on labor of love for both partners. Brandon still touches every piece that emerges from the studio and Marty is still directly involved in retailer, vendor and customer interactions.

Says Brandon, “I feel a connection with each piece that we make. There is great joy in releasing something new into the world – and no matter how many we make, there is still a little sadness watching each one go.”

“We never want to get to a point where we aren’t in touch – both figuratively and literally – with the things that made us want to do this in the first place”, adds Marty. “The enjoyment of watching a customer experience our designs in person never gets old for me.”

In 1912, the location in Midtown Memphis was purchased and there it remained until 2008.  Alex Christie’s son Fred Christie worked in the mill through his youth and took over ownership upon his return from duty in the Philippine Islands during WWII . Fred Christie's son, Bond became owner in 1984 and was responsible for expanding a once local market, to the southeast region of the United States. The company has expanded to include a complete line of building & landscaping stone. One thing that remains over time is the skill and craftsmanship that goes into the production of each hand carved piece of limestone.

The next 100 years is off to a great start with the addition of a second location at 10455 Hwy 64 which is fully devoted to natural stone for the homeowner and the relocation of the mill itself to Gallaway, TN along with new state of the art technology.

Morgreen Nursery

Morgreen Nursery

In 1986, long time friends, Charles Moore and Kyle Rice bought Fant's Nursery located on Poplar Avenue in Collierville. Eli Lilly Agrarian and Collierville Resident, Charles Moore, saw the need for a full service Nursery/Landscape Company located in the area during the early growth of Collierville. Charles recruited the people he knew best, his wife, Joyce Moore, his son Eddie, just out of college, and Eddie's long time friend, Mike Omar to help him realize his dream of owning his own business.

Morgreen's commitment to offering locally grown products and exceptional service at fair prices paid off quickly. Within only five years of business, Morgreen outgrew their original one and one-half acres on Poplar Avenue. Six acres were purchased just around the corner, at 468 Highway 72, and became our current home. Morgreen's expanse allows the unique opportunity to provide a variety of visual landscapes as well as a broad scope of mature plants and trees for an ever growing customer base.

In 1996, we were saddened by the loss of Charles Moore, our beloved patriarch . His commitment and contribution to Morgreen's core business practices and prolonged success were, and continue to be highly revered . Within a few years, Eddie Moore and Mike Omar were able to buy out the remaining investors (Joyce Moore and Kyle Rice) to become Co-owners of Morgreen, Inc.

Today, in our 24th year of business, our desire to please and our commitment to excellence has grown stronger. Our pledge to provide superior service and a beautiful product remains our passion, one project, one client at a time. Figure & 2 are scanned photos of original Poplar Ave. location and today's 468 Hway 72 location.

Herring Design

Herring Design

Hello! My name is Rachel, and I'm the head of this here operation. In fact, I'm the whole operation! I have been designing and creating for as long as I can remember. When I was little, I was never without a crayon or marker in my hand. Continuing through school, I took art classes and created t-shirts and set designs for dances in high school.  I knew I wanted to major in a design field, and I graduated with a degree in Interior Design and another in Business Administration at Auburn University. While in school, I learned how to use Adobe Creative Suite, and it ignited a desire to do graphic design. I moved to Birmingham for an internship and remained here after graduation. Still having a major interest in graphic design, I started Herring Design Co. to design custom invitations for people. The business slowly grew by word of mouth, and so did the products I offer! I love graphic design, so I continued beyond invitations to create stationery, prints, and promotional work. In addition to graphic design work, I have introduced different mediums into my online shop.  I began creating string art and barnwood bamas in my carport and front yard (where I still am making them today). I also dabble in painting, where I specialize in pet paintings. I have been in a couple of art shows here in Birmingham, and I truly enjoy sharing the pieces I've made.

Heritage Printing Service

Heritage Printing Service

Heritage Printing Service is one of the oldest family-owned commercial printing businesses in Richmond. Originally named Quick Printing Company, it was established in 1946 by William S. Miles, Sr., in a small building on Hull Street in South Richmond. His son, William “Sam” Miles, Jr., joined the family business after World War II when he was discharged from the Navy. The father-son team worked together for only five years before the elder’s untimely death in 1952.

In those early years, long days were typical for Sam Miles, who often returned to work after dinner bringing his young son Bill with him. Not surprisingly, by the time Bill reached his teens, he knew how to operate every piece of equipment in the building. The company’s name was changed to Heritage Printing Service in the ’70s to distinguish their offset-printing business from the myriad of copying companies that had sprouted in Richmond during that period.

In 1991, Sam retired to the river turning the business over to his enterprising son Bill, who possessed keen business instincts. Under Bill’s leadership, Heritage Printing Service built a reputation as a state-of-the-art printing operation, utilizing the latest Heidelberg technology. In December 2003, Bill moved the business to a custom-built, 18,000-square-foot building on Decatur Street, just off Hull Street. Ironically, the new location backs up to the small building that was once home to Bill’s grandfather’s Quick Printing Company.

Sadly, Bill succumbed to lung cancer in 2010, but not before passing the family legacy to his capable daughter Lindsay, who joined Heritage Printing Service in 2008 after graduating from Chowan University. “I guess you could say printing is in our blood,” says Lindsay Miles proudly.

The Owners

Dan A. Perrin

Born in Charleston, Dan Perrin developed an understanding and appreciation for the lowcountry and the environment at a young age.  Woodworking has always been a passion of Dan's and in 1999, Perrin started the cabinetry business Perrin Woodworking from his home garage.  Dan started the company with the desire to offer residents of the lowcountry uncompromised quality and design.  Growing up in the lowcountry, it is no surprise that Dan is a man of the water.  As a self-taught sailor, Dan was raised with a strong passion for the water.  "Sailing is much like woodworking. Both deal with the elements, and it is our responsibility to respect those elements while working with them."  Today, Perrin has expands on the original concept of residential cabinetry to include fine custom furniture and commercial interiors that can be seen from Charleston to Charlotte and Atlanta.  Perrin continues to develop his craft, experimenting with new building techniques and material, and is always looking for the next challenge to push his craft to new heights. 

Katherine J. Perrin

Working in her father & grandfather’s wood shop at a young age and influenced by their passion for furniture making, Katy grew up with a strong appreciation for woodworking, art, and a desire to express herself through a mixed media of installation and photography.  At the age of eighteen, Katy traveled to Australia for what she thought was a last ditch effort to “figure out her purpose in life” and what ended up a three month photography excursion from Brisbane to the Whitsunday Islands.  Once grounded back in “the real world” Katy commenced to enhance her knowledge of the arts at Augusta State University.  At age twenty, the call of the ocean summoned her, and Perrin moved to Charleston to teach sailing, quickly falling in love with the beauty and wander of the low country. Today, Perrin works alongside her husband as co-owner of Perrin Woodworking.   “Nature has always fascinated me and I love taking items from the outdoors and creating pieces than can be enjoyed by others.” Katy & Dan can be often be found working together (but separately) in the shop or more often enjoying a “cold one” on the water!

Sharon Payer Design

Sharon Payer Design

Growing up with siblings in a blue-collar family, we learned to make the most out of the things we had, from handmades to hand-me-downs.  As I grew older and started earning my own money, I recognized the value of a dollar even more.  I realized I didn’t have to sacrifice good taste to feel good about my surroundings, just get a little more creative.  I’ve always appreciated a beautiful space but it wasn’t until my husband and I bought a fixer upper in downtown Charleston that my true passion was unleashed.  I left my medical sales career to pursue real estate and interior design.  Over the past decade my sense of style has evolved with my greatest inspiration coming from what we already have, whether it’s a tree branch from a camping trip or a vintage find second hand.  I’m drawn to the warm colors and the varied textures and elements our beautiful Earth has to offer.

I believe our mood is directly affected by our surroundings. Just how a great outfit and accessories can make our day, a great space can do the same for our lives. Beautiful surroundings are for everyone and true beauty is what YOU want it to be. You don’t have to spend tens of thousands of dollars to feel amazed by your home. The best thing in life is life itself, surround yourself with the space you love!

I wanted to share my experience with Fix It and Finish It, because it was truly one of my best professional moments. Not only did I get to work along side Antonio, but the crew was so friendly and accommodated all my needs. I have even formed close ties with many of them and feel fortunate to call them my friends. I just wanted to give a public thank you to the cast and crew for making one of my lifelong dreams of shooting a national TV design show become a reality. I feel so fortunate to be FIFIs first "Twofer" as they called me for designing two rooms in one day rather than just one. It was definitely hard work but it has proven to be one of my greatest accomplishments. It was unforgettable and I wish the show nothing but success and well wishes.

Founded in 2009, by New Orleans Saints safety Roman Harper and his mother, Princess Harper, as a part of his commitment to serve the communities that have supported him throughout his life.​

The traditional African proverb, "It takes a village to raise a child" has never been more necessary than it is today. Roman was fortunate enough to be raised by a "village" that provided support, security, direction, education, and concern for him as a child. Without this "village" approach that helped mold Roman into the adult he is today, there is no telling where he would be. As a result, Roman understands how important it is to provide today's youth with strong community partners and programs.

Harper's Hope 4*1 Foundation exists to prepare our youth for tomorrow by providing them with the tools necessary to be successful in a pressure-packed world. We do this through our reading program, after-school program, 7-on-7 tournament, and continuous outreach programs throughout the year.

Throughout the year, The Harper’s Hope 4*1 Foundation presents a wide variety of community event programs such as reading contests, entrepreneur workshops, after school youth activities, summer camps for kids and mentoring programs.

Distinctive Design

Distinctive Design

Distinctive Design / Build / Remodel is an award-winning remodeling company and custom home builder based in Charlotte, NC. We specialize in luxury remodeling and custom home building in the Charlotte metro area, the barrier islands of Charleston, SC, as well as select communities in the Carolina Mountains. We are licensed in NC and SC and we provide turn-key design and construction services for clients who won’t settle for ordinary.

We collaborate with you to turn your wants and needs into beautiful living spaces. Our design and construction experts take the time to really understand your concerns and your vision. We believe careful planning and craftsmanship are keys to a successful remodeling or custom home project. Whether it’s time to overhaul your kitchen and bathrooms, add on to your home, or build from scratch – we can help. Not only do we design living spaces that will enhance your lifestyle, we build a relationship of trust that will last for years to come.

Owner Bios

Distinctive Design / Build / Remodel is co-owned by General Contractor, Vince Busby, and Design Coordinator, Erin Dougherty. This award-winning team has won praise locally and nationally for their thoughtful designs and carefully executed construction projects. They’ve been awarded the prestigious CotY (Contractor of the Year) award by NARI (National Association of the Remodeling Industry) and the Chrysalis award – which celebrates the finest remodeling projects in America. But more important than any award – they have many clients who are on their third, fourth and even fifth remodeling projects with the company.

Vince Busby – General Contractor, Certified Remodeler

Vince has been in the construction business for more than 30 years. He began his career working with his father building apartment complexes in New Mexico and Florida.  During that time, Vince got hands-on experience in all areas of residential construction as well as construction management. His attention to detail – especially the finishing stage – means you can expect a flawless finish.

In 1997, Vince opened his own remodeling business in Charlotte, NC. The business thrived thanks to referrals and repeat clients – people who wouldn’t have any other builder work on their homes. Vince’s construction knowledge is so well respected that he’s been tapped to testify as an expert witness by attorneys who specialize in construction litigation. 

Vince is one of only a handful of Certified Remodelers in the Charlotte-Metro area and the only Certified Remodeler working on Kiawah Island, SC. Only full-time, professional remodeling contractors are eligible for certification by the National Association of the Remodeling Industry. The NARI testing and screening process is rigorous to ensure that the work of Certified Remodelers is the best in the industry.

In 2013, Vince joined forces with designer, Erin Dougherty, and together they formed Distinctive Design / Build / Remodel which is now the Carolinas’ trusted source for luxury remodeling and custom homes.

Erin Dougherty – Design Coordinator

Erin is co-owner and principal designer of Distinctive Design / Build / Remodel. She will be involved with your remodel or custom home project from the very beginning. Erin is able to remove much of the stress clients feel during a construction project by managing hundreds of details and decisions that need to be made. 

As a former television producer, she is skilled at communication and she makes sure all the players involved in the building process - from clients to sub-contractors to trade partners -understand what needs to happen and when it needs to happen to keep projects on schedule and on budget.

Erin is respected by the sub-contractors and trades people who work for her because she is knowledgeable and can anticipate what they need to get their jobs done. Her ability to work with architects, engineers, carpenters, electricians, plumbers and other trades as well as inspectors ensures that your project will be well designed and built to last.

Clients say Erin has an intuitive sense of what they want to achieve even if they aren’t exactly sure how to go about getting it. She really listens to and cares about her clients’ needs and dreams for their homes and helps them navigate the multitude of options while keeping an eye on the bottom line. She is creative and always ready with helpful advice or solutions but she never imposes her taste on her clients. She will steer you away from major mistakes but, in the end, she wants it to feel like your home.

Bottom Line

We are the first ones to admit that Distinctive Design / Build / Remodel won't always be the fastest or the cheapest. And we certainly never promise you something we can't deliver. What we do promise is fanatical attention to detail, extraordinary responsiveness to your needs, unparalleled communication and an absolutely STUNNING remodel or custom home that you will love.

Fix It & Finish It Testimonial

While I am a former television producer and was excited to have our company selected as the Design / Build team for an episode of Fix It & Finish It – my business partner and our General Contractor, Vince Busby, was not so sure. But once he heard about the family we would be helping, all the reluctance he had about being “on TV” melted away. Shawn and Angie are both soldiers who serve our country and it was a real honor to help this young couple tame the jungle of baby equipment that had sprouted up in their family room since they had twins several months ago.

It was an absolute pleasure spending the day working with Antonio and his crew. Antonio kicked off the early morning meeting in a parking lot a few miles from Shawn and Angie’s home with an inspirational prayer. Our last-minute jitters gave way to anticipation as we headed over to surprise the young couple. And then the non-stop action began as our guys worked tirelessly to transform the family room from a mish-mash of furnishings and baby gear to a sleek and stylish space for adults and children to enjoy.

Antonio was hands-on during the entire process – helping rip out the carpet, paint the walls, and move in the new furniture. Vince and Antonio joked that they should make a whole episode about installing the new ceiling light which took longer than expected because of existing wiring that had to be re-worked. Antonio is certainly not a Hollywood “prima-donna” – just a down-to-earth guy who genuinely seems to enjoy his job and the opportunity to change lives by improving homes.

Everyone on the television crew was professional and went out of their way to make us feel comfortable during the long day of shooting. The director, Collin, was patient and encouraging when we flubbed our on-camera interviews and asked for a mulligan. Our segment producer, Hannah, was incredibly organized and a real ray of sunshine. At the end of the day, we were thrilled to be part of such a great show.

David Tyson

David Tyson

David Tyson and Associates Inc is the current name of the general contracting company that started in 1982. After receiving his bachelors degree from UNCC in scenic and lighting design for the theater (BCA) , finding work in Charlotte proved difficult for this line of work. The drafting and design skills learned in college has been the launching board for creating a Design/ Build remodeling practice. Now using the Softplan architectural design program, David can create realistic 3 dimensional modeled renderings of clients projects before they are ever built, at the clients kitchen table! After school he worked for Belk’s uptown department store in the display department, then spent a year doing routing and sandblasting with the Softwood Sign Company. Then he joined a friend building decks for a home builder as sub-contractors. Going out on his own, he honed his skills working as a sub-contractor for several home builders.  Learning production carpentry for siding and boxing, house framing, interior trim, cabinetry and finally a punch out carpenter; David used these skills to build a hands on approach to residential remodeling. When the old wooden Crockett Ball Park burned down in 1986; David was chosen to be the contractor to rebuild a temporary ball park. In six weeks, his team built 4 small buildings, 6000 s.f. of decking and had the place ready for opening day. After this exposure; David had built enough of a private clientele base of referrals that he no longer was a sub-contractor. The growing size of jobs required David to acquire his N.C. General Contractor’s license. Then he achieved a Certified Remodeler (CR) and a Certified Kitchen and Bath Remodeler (CKBR) from NARI, the National Association of the Remodeling Industry. David became president of the local NARI chapter for 2 years in 1995 and then went on to become a Regional Vice President of NARI National for 5 years. He also served on the National Certification Board for NARI. As a past president, David helped create the charitable arm for the NARI chapter; The Jim Harkey Memorial Fund. This fund has donated over $100k to local charities and created 2 yearly awarded scholarships. During the boom years, David employed as many as 12 people. He provided health insurance and a retirement plan to keep good employees. With happy employees, they could produce excellent craftsmanship and quality service in a timely manner.

Sun Shades and Graphics

Sun Shades and Graphics

Owner Jeff Carstetter discovered at twelve years old that he had a love affair with the automobile. In 1974, he landed a job as an apprentice in a sign shop that allowed him to begin designing graphics and lettering on commercial vehicles. In 1977, he came to Columbia to look around, loved what he saw, and 2 weeks later packed up and moved here… permanently. After accepting a job in a sign shop for a brief period, he was offered a position with a franchised company designing stripes and graphics for auto dealers. This is when he was introduced to auto accessories, including window tinting. By 1980 he decided to strike out on his own and opened the business that eventually became today’s Sun Shades & Graphics.

sun shades and awnings south carolina about us carstetter familyIt didn’t take long before his clients began to ask about tinting their homes and offices. While maintaining an excellent automobile business, Carstetter began to pursue the residential and commercial tinting business. In 1994 Sun Shades & Graphics acquired the VISTA Window Film dealership. This continued the changes within the clientele of Sun Shades & Graphics. Carstetter received the coveted degree in “Accredited Solar Control Specialist” from The International Window Film Association.

By 2000 the majority of Sun Shades & Graphics clients were requesting residential and commercial tinting. Carstetter was becoming more and more involved with the home building industry. He was appointed to the board of directors of the Greater Columbia Remodelers Council (a division of The Home Builders Association) in 2001 for a 2-year term. In 2002 CP Films (now known as Eastman Performance Films) designated Sun Shades & Graphics as the only Platinum Dealer in central South Carolina. It was time for a major change within Sun Shades & Graphics. The decision was made to merge the automotive tinting and accessories business with Conrad Geiger of Auto Trim Design. While staying somewhat involved with the automotive business this would allow Carstetter to focus most of his energy and attention on residential and commercial solar control products.

From 2002 until the present, Sun Shades & Graphics has continued to add more and more solar control products. They have become a one stop shop for all your solar control needs.

In 2011 Carstetter was appointed to serve on the Executive Committee for the Green Building Council of Columbia. This will enable him to give and receive information about sustainable residential construction. With the ongoing issues of energy costs and demand, Carstetter can continue to give back to the community while learning and researching ways to keep our environment safe and clean.

Jeff Carstetter, with his wife Sondi and a full time staff have almost 65 years of experience in the window tinting business. They pride themselves in providing mom-and-pop customer service as well as the most technologically advanced products in the world today. VISTA Window Film, Eastman Performance Films and Huper Optik Window Film have put Sun Shades & Graphics on the map as the provider of the "FINEST WINDOW FILMS IN THE WORLD."

My husband Chris has been a U.S. Marine for 19 years and I am currently a stay at home mom. I just finished my Bachelor's Degree in Psychology. We have a two year old son Christian and another baby on the way. In 2013 my husband received orders to leave Tallahassee, Florida and move to Charlotte, North Carolina. We had very little time to look for a house before we had to move. We looked at 20 houses in one day and had to pick one. The house we picked was still under construction and only had 2x4's when we saw it. When we moved in it was the first time we saw the house finished and we had not time to paint so our walls are all primer still. Having no family in the area to help out and raising a toddler leaves very little time to try and paint or decorate. We desperately needed someone to come in our home and help us out.

When we heard a knock on the door and saw Antonio and the Fix It and Finish It team standing there we were in shock. Things like this do not happen to us. We are so grateful for the work that Antonio and the team did for us. My husband and I are able to spend time in a bedroom that we never thought we would have. At the end of the day we can relax in a peaceful, relaxing environment. Thank you Fix It and Finish It!

Testimonial of  Kehoe Constructors for the Columbia, SC Fix It & Finish It  - Michael & Robyn Douglas  - Episode #95

 

To the Fix It & Finish It team,

We really enjoyed the experience of participating in transforming Michael and Robyn Douglas’ living room. The process was a blast.

·      Hearing from Bin with BIA about the opportunity to be part of a Fix It & Finish It  program.

·      Being selected to be the contractor for Michael & Robyn.

·      Meeting at their home to review scope of work and keeping it “secret” that they were chosen.

·      All the phone calls and emails with Drew, Cecelia and the others.

·      Contacting very willing subcontractors and suppliers to join with us (see attached list).

·      On the day of the shoot meeting Collin with his film crew and finally meeting Antonio

·      Antonio’s prayer before starting really set the day.

·      Our parade of vehicles driving down their street.

·      The Drone, the filming, …the filming again….all new to us. Gave deeper appreciation and understanding of what you guys do.

·      Watching all the team, (up to sixteen at one time in the living room) smoothly transforming the room….awesome.

·      Lunch…visits w/crew and friends.

·      And finally – waiting silently in the kitchen – as we listen to Michael & Robyn’s reaction as they enter their home and see the amazing improvements to their living room situation…priceless….brought tears to our eyes.

Thanks again-

A memory we will cherish forever.

Matt and Jill Jones, along with their two sons, Harris (age 8) and Oliver (age 4) live in a wonderful neighborhood in the heart of the South Park area in Charlotte, NC.  We moved to the neighborhood for the amazing elementary school not knowing much else about the area.  Then we met our wonderful neighbors (some who are now our closest friends) and decided this was the place for us long-term.

When we bought our house 4 years ago, we knew we had a list of projects we wanted to complete.  One month after moving in, we welcomed our youngest son into this world.   A few weeks later, Matt and I decided I would try to be a stay at home mom, therefore I would need to resign from my dream job.  With the resignation of my job, we were down to one income and unable to check off all the projects from our to-do list. 

I read that Fix It and Finish It was coming to Charlotte and I immediately submitted a video of our rooms in need.  To my surprise and delight, I heard back from the FI&FI team asking for more info.

Matt and I were truly blown away when Antonio came knocking on our door one very cold (and early) January morning!!  Matt and I had such a blast working with Antonio and his team!  Everything was such a whirlwind and happened so quickly, we could barely catch our breath to take it all in.  Antonio, the FI & FI crew, interior designers, the painters, flooring people, etc. everyone was a pleasure to work with.  We didn’t know what to expect at the reveal but when we opened our eyes we were immediately overwhelmed to see the beautiful transformation of our family room and playroom.  We now know the hard work and time put into making an episode of FI&FI and appreciate every minute of it.  This was truly a once in a lifetime experience that we will never forget.

Nail holes, joins and like imperfections shall be repaired, puttied and/or sanded where necessary. All this is done to ensure that the final finish not only adheres to the surface, but also looks beautiful and lasts a long time.

Each and every employee is devoted to the highest standards of excellence. We want you to be satisfied with the end result year after year.

While on the Hawaiian island of Kauai, Jeff Goldberg and Tanner Haigwood, two Maryland college friends, came up with the idea of a company designed to make a difference in the future of our planet. Bamboo proved to be the ideal product to make this vision a reality. The extremely durable woody grass is the fastest growing plant on Earth and can regenerate in a fraction of the time it takes traditional lumber to mature. This makes bamboo a green alternative to less sustainable wood products.

How We've Grown
Founded in 2004 with a single delivery van and a garage full of bamboo fencing, Cali Bamboo has grown as fast as the bamboo we supply. Adding new products like flooring, plywood, panelling and composite decking, Cali Bamboo has met the market’s growing demand for high quality green building materials. As a testament to this growth, 2014 marked Cali Bamboo’s sixth consecutive year as an Inc 500/5000 fastest-growing company.

Where We're Headed
Cali Bamboo continues to innovate and expand both the materials and applications for green building. By devoting resources and research to constant product development, the company is able to guarantee quality materials. What sets Cali Bamboo apart and what it continues to put resources into is the quality of its products. Our production management from source materials to finished goods to final shipment is continuously evolving and improving.

We strive to set the standard for sustainable businesses everywhere and promote bamboo and recycled materials as a means to improve the use of the limited resources on our planet. 

We cannot say enough good things about working with the Fix It and Finish Team. They made the entire process seamless and easy, and we were thrilled to hear how much the contractor loved our black bamboo fencing. We would happily work with Fix It and Finish It again.

Castillo Family

I have lived in my house since 2002. Carlos and I met at the West Side Market when I would buy organic vegetables from his stand while on my lunch hour. Carlos is from Peru and was studying to be a nurse because he loves helping people. We were married in 2004 and we both really love the house and neighborhood. We are 20 houses from Lake Erie and we have a fabulous beach club. The house has a lot of character and charm, but is badly in need of updating. We spent quite a bit of money on things like waterproofing, and a new roof, driveway, and windows, but didn’t do much in the way of remodeling. A couple of years ago I decided to open a doggy day care business and spent all of my time and money getting it going. I left a good paying job to start the business in 2013, but unfortunately it failed. Luckily I was able to find another job, and Carlos is working as a nurse in a hospital, but we are still trying to get back on our feet. Thank you Fix It & Finish It for giving us a new office to inspire us to pursue our dream of having a pet business. We are both pet lovers and hope to open an internet-based business to promote pet welfare.

H.J. Holtz & Sons

H.J. Holtz & Sons

H.J. Holtz & Son, Inc. was founded by my grandfather, Herman J. Holtz, in 1936. Over the years the company has grown to become a full-service painting, decorative finishes, and wallpaper contractor. But our growth is not as important as how we do what we do.

Because we’ve been in business so long, we’ve been able to orient everything about how we operate around providing high-quality service to our clients.

As we gained experience with homeowners we began to see the same problems or challenges come up repeatedly. For many of these problems, simply applying paint was not a sufficient solution. Here are just a few of the challenges that we have come to understand over the years and to develop ways to overcome:

Design limits – by hiring and training talented people, we’ve developed unmatched expertise in wallpapering, decorative finishes, and creative applications of paint to offer our clients greater design freedom.

Imperfect structures and walls – houses settle or have unusual characteristics. We’ve practically become “wall whisperers” over time given our ability to figure out tricky situations and direct the work of other contractors to reach a result that otherwise seemed impossible.

Timing and budget – our project management process has evolved during our history to become one of our most valuable company assets. Our clients not only want a “wow” result, they want it delivered on time and on budget… so that is what we do!

Trust and comfort – having a company come into your home to work for days or even weeks is an inconvenience. That inconvenience is made much easier with the right people. At H.J. Holtz & Son, we hire enjoyable people and train them to not only develop into true craftsmen, but to provide excellent customer service.

Paint jobs that don’t last – as we have perfected our practices and stayed abreast of the latest in paint and application technologies, our clients have enjoyed greater and greater longevity from the work we do. It’s not uncommon for one of our projects to still look great 20 years later. Our partners have a lot to do with that.

Sure, it’s satisfying to have grown into a full-service painting, faux finish, and wallpaper contractor. But it’s truly rewarding to see that how we do what we do has helped our clients solve frustrating problems and enjoy their homes more completely.

From all of us at H.J. Holtz & Son Painting, Papering and Decorative Finishes, I invite you to browse our project gallery for inspiration, or contact us to schedule a complimentary consultation.

We are both from the Richmond area. We met during college at BYU in Utah. In 1996, Charles was in a motorcycle accident causing brain trauma. He had to learn to read and write again. He returned to college and completed his associate degree. After college in Utah, Rebecca moved back to VA and we were married in 1998. We have three great children-Chandler age 14, Sydney age 12, and Canon age 10. We have lived here in Mechanicsville for 10 years. This is our forever home. Charles lost his job in residential design/construction when the housing market crashed in 2008. Rebecca returned to the workforce and Charles has done may odd and part time jobs to keep our family here. We have struggled but have been successful keeping our home through it all. We have financially slowly bounced back, but any work on the home has been put on the back burner and for the children's interests and activities such as soccer, baseball, dance, and art lessons-they are our focus and more important when a dime has to be divided between new cleats or a throw pillow. We are a happy loving family and spend our free time at kids' events and watching movies. 

The crew of Fix it and Finish It was amazing. They are all welcome back any time!!! They were courteous and respectful and so fun! We had a quick kinship and joking time that made the day all that more memorable. We had lunch in our garage and played darts in the down time. I am so glad it is all caught on tape.

Daughtry Family

Daughtry Family

Chris and Sam met in 2007 while working at a local mom and pop restaurant in Wetumpka. We started talking, and she was brave enough to introduce me to her wonderful 3-year-old son, Logan. Me and Logan took to one another quickly, which was a huge relief for Sam, and we decided to make things a little more serious. Soon Sam, and Logan moved into the house that I was renting at the time (the epitome of a bachelor pad) and made it a true home. After some years of dating, five to be exact, we started the ball rolling on becoming a real family. We purchased the rental house from the owner and tied the knot less than a year later.  The home was great, but needed some renovations, and deep cleaning. One of our main dislikes was a beige carpet that had last seen a good day sometime in the 80's. After some nudging from Sam, and a horrible pet accident, I agreed to rip it up. We were not prepared for what we found underneath. As you guys could tell, the floors were in no condition for bare feet. Being the young budding family that we were, we used the cunning use of rugs, and strategically placed furniture to cover this problem for the mean time. Fast forward a few weeks and Sam informs me we'll be adding a new addition to the family, and I couldn’t have been happier. On September 19th, 2013, Logan's 9th birthday, Corbin came into the world to make our family complete. Things were great until our little monster became too mobile and began to explore the hidden floor beneath our rugs and furniture. It was clear that we would have to do something if we were going to keep his little legs and feet safe. Enter you guys. The morning Antonio knocked on our door; we were elated, and incredibly shocked. Everyone one from the crew was so incredibly nice, and polite. Even Sam, whom suffers from a little bit of social anxiety felt comfortable with the crew. That says something about how amazing everyone was. It may have taken her a little to warm up, but not very long. The day everyone showed up was like a dream. We were in constant cloud 9 through the entirety of the day. The excitement of everyone tearing the gaudy built in (Sam only thought she liked it until after the reveal) in the dining room and patching the floor...making the "do it yourself" project mirror, we had no idea what to expect. The moment we walked in, jaws dropped and our eyes scanning the new space, was far better than anything we could have ever expected. IT was us. It IS home. How Nicki, Antonio (along with everyone with the show), We have no idea just HOW you captured us so perfectly based on just a few short conversations and the mix-matched rugs and furniture that had been in our home previously. It is TRUELY the best thing that has happened to us (outside of our kids, of course). Thank you for the blessings you brought to our home.

In 5 years Spruce has grown from a showroom to include a retail store offering a variety of sustainable products. All the products are carefully vetted before they get to the retail floor.  We are require that our products have one or more of the following qualities-sustainable, handmade, artist made, fair trade, locally produced and green shipping practices.

Organized Impressions

Organized Impressions

I am Nadine McCoy the owner of Organized Impressions – Büro 24/7 and I have this dream, this dream to provide tired, overworked female entrepreneurs, small business owners and busy female professionals with a beautiful and functional office space, structure and control over their time and life. Time, that I wish they get to spend with their families, themselves, travelling or whatever else it is they’d like to do when they aren’t necessarily working, catching up on administrative tasks, pay bills, run errands, cook, do laundry or are simply too exhausted then to think about doing anything else. 

And how do I do that you ask? Well if you are looking for a title than Professional Organizer, Office Organizing Expert, Designer, Small Business Adviser, Lifestyle Manager and Concierge come to mind. I organize and design office and work spaces, move anything and everything that isn’t glued to the floor or desk, de-clutter, help downsize and manage endless paper stacks, shred, file, set you up with simple, easy to follow and efficient systems, run your errands and help you conquer your “To Do List” all the while I listen, council, motivate and give advice so you can gain control over the little bit of time you do have. 

I am a female entrepreneur and small business owner myself, I passionately believe that women can have it all and deserve it all. I have the most wonderful supportive friends, I am an avid traveler, lover of all things beautiful, a wife, a step mom to a sweet 17 year old young woman that is about to go off to college and mom to my beloved two kitties Gizmo and Skittles and two puppies Nola and Daisy. But most importantly, I know of and understand the challenges we face as women and get the importance of structure, being organized and time management so we actually do get to enjoy all of these things. 

I was born and raised in Germany, I hold a Degree in Business Administration and am a Specialist in Wholesale and International Trade. I left for the US at the age of 24, where I then earned a BFA in Interior Design. Organizing and efficiency are in my blood and supporting others while creating beautiful, functional office and work spaces are my passion and everything else I just happen to be very good at. 

Whether business or home office – many of them have one thing in common, they are functionally and aesthetically in the dark ages. I decided it was time to reinvent the office into spaces that were not only highly functional, organized but also beautiful, thus Organized Impressions – Büro 24/7 was born in 2012. Since then, a roster of small business owners, entrepreneurs and homeowners of all walks of life have engaged my Organizing, Design or Büro 24/7 Concierce Services. Creating customized office spaces that add real value to the individual and improve the homeowners or business owners living and work experience while adding style and flair to what is one of the most important space in our life considering how much time we spend in our offices. What do you need help with and how much is your time with your family worth? See how I can help you here.

Our Philosophy

Why We're Different

Connecting with clients is huge to us. That's why we believe in sharing ideas through ongoing collaboration. It's also why we're committed to professional, detail-oriented service. This commitment, as well as our fresh approach to design, is what we're best known for.

Testimonial From Nelson Byrd:

Working with the cast and crew of FIFI was amazing.  Everyone involved from top to bottom had an emotional connection with the families we surprised. At the end of the day, that was what resonates with the team here at Landscape Design Studio.  It has reminded us that while we work to make a living and enjoy what we do, there is a bigger picture in our community we need to never forget.

Lori Tantawi

Lori Tantawi

My name is Lori Tantawi and my husband and I currently live in New Orleans, LA with our two small dogs. We first met in 2007 while we were both stationed at Fort Drum, NY. He was serving as a Platoon Leader in Iraq and I was a Military Intelligence Captain assigned to the Aviation Brigade. During his deployment, he found my profile on MySpace and contacted me. Upon his return from Iraq, we started dating and have been together ever since. In 2010, I medically retired from the US Army and Ibrahim was reassigned to New Orleans, LA. We fell in love with the city of New Orleans and we decided to purchase out first home here. In early 2014 Ibrahim deployed to Afghanistan. Since he was deployed I decided I wanted to surprise him by renovating the backyard. Realizing I needed a lot of help accomplishing this, I contacted Fix It and Finish It and they were gracious enough to help me. During the taping of the show, Ibrahim was deployed to Afghanistan, however on 5 August he was wounded in an attack and is currently stateside recovering from his injuries. He was awarded the Purple Heart and Bronze Star Medals.

I was truly blessed by this entire experience. All the casting directors, producers, designers, landscapers and contractors were amazing to work with. They filled my home and my heart with a lasting positive energy.  Antonio was simply unbelievable, I was in awe of his energy and enthusiasm as he and the other cast members worked non-stop in the hot sun. Deployments are very difficult and it was a blessing to have my once empty feeling house filled with such love and positive emotions.

As a Wounded Warrior, this experience has given me a renewed since of hope and purpose towards combating my illness and using my God given strengths

I am a single working parent of a college and high school student.  This home was inherited from my deceased father.  My father died 3 days before Hurricane Katrina.  After his wife died in 1992 of breast cancer, my father could not financially afford the continued upkeep as he once did as there became one income.  I moved in with my father in 1994 to help him get through his financial difficulties.  There has not been any upgrades in some rooms since the home was purchased in 1980.  This renovation was a blessing to enhance to look of my space that could not be done due to financial difficulties.

 Antonio Sabato, Jr. and his team was wonderful.  Very pleasant to work with from the start.  The interior designer know exactly what I was looking for in my space.  The contractors that was brought in was knowledgeable and professional.  We have really enjoyed our new space more than ever.  We sit more in the living room than we ever have.

Alexis Cortez- Born and raised in Tucson, AZ. Registered Nurse, graduated from the University of Arizona. Worked in pediatrics and now a School Nurse.

Fernando Cortez- Born and raised in Tucson, AZ. Graduated from ITT Technical Institute. Software Engineer.

Ayana Cortez- 13 years old, student in 8th grade. Has been playing Softball since she was 5 years old!

Dante Cortez- 5 years old, student in Kindergarten. Loves to play all sports. He started playing T-ball and is currently into football.

Miabella Cortez- 2 years old. She is full of energy and loves to play outside. She is climbing and jumping all over the place! She loves music and loves to dance and sing.

We are the Cortez Family! We have 3 wonderful/beautiful children: Ayana, Dante, and Miabella. We work really hard to provide for them. We are very involved with our children and have them participate in many activities including sports. They love to play baseball/softball, soccer, basketball, football, and just run around in general! We’ve always dreamed of having a yard where our kids can play in and when we finally did, it was sad that our kids couldn't’t play out there! We would often have to go to the park as our backyard was full of rocks, glass, old rusted nails and not to mention a hill of rocks across the entire yard! It was nerve wrecking to have our little toddler out there. We were attached to her hip afraid of what she might find and put in her mouth or of her falling down the rocks. There was so much dust and dirt outside which would get carried inside the house. Our oldest daughter has asthma so this was not  ideal! Now that Fix It and Finish It has provided us with this amazing backyard, our kids practically live outside now! We have been outside almost on a daily basis. We love to entertain out there and the kids are having a blast. We are so blessed and thankful.

Our family would like to thank all of the Fix It & Finish It Staff from the bottom of our hearts!! We are very grateful for everything and in complete awe over how friendly, kind, and down to Earth ALL of the staff members were including Antonio! It didn't feel like a celebrity was in our home because Antonio was just so humble and easy to talk to. This was an experience of a lifetime that we will never forget! We are still in disbelief that something this grand has happened to us. Best of all we are content with our children running around outside because they are in a safe yard now. It is such an amazing feeling!

 A huge thank you to Florencia and her staff at Within Studio, Dave and his staff at All Terrain Landscape Creations, Jeri and The Synthetic Grass Store. You were all so professional, friendly, and wonderful!

Again thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone involved. We seriously cannot thank you all enough!

Civano Nursery

Civano Nursery

Civano Nursery has been open since 1999 and we have gone through a lot of changes over the years. Running a business can be a challenge, but it has been one that we have enjoyed every step of the way. Now gone from single, to married, to driving kids in a minivan! Life has taught me the importance of having a place that you can shop at that has a little something for everyone. That’s why we have a play area for the little ones, a putting green for the older ones and an abundance of plants for the avid gardener. If you don’t feel like digging a hole, no problem! We can design it, deliver it, and plant it for you.

The majority of the plants found at our garden center have been grown by my younger brother Nick at our 70 acre Sahuarita farm. He really has a passion for plants, and it shows in the quality and variety of plants that he chooses for each season. He has propagated and patented some great new trees for smaller spaces: the Leslie Roy Mesquite for example which is named after our Dad.

How did we get here? Well it all started with our Dad Les Shipley, who taught us the value of a hard day’s  work and the joy of growing plants. At a very young age my brothers and I could be found running through the greenhouses or potting up plants. We’ve just always been exposed to agriculture and the joy of growing plants. Now it’s our turn to pass it down to our children and teach them what our father taught us. That’s why we strive to provide a family atmosphere that enlightens, inspires, and ultimately guides you to a successful garden.

So embrace the desert and decorate that outdoor room we like to call the garden! - Chris Shipley President Civano Nursery
