“Richard Ourso has provided design/layout services for me for 2 projects, my master bathroom and my kitchen/den remodel. The bath remodel was in 2014 and the kitchen/den was in late 2015. Both projects came out great and the final result was exactly what I hoped they would be.

Richard took my wish lists for each project and developed the space planning to accommodate as many of my items as possible without altering the footprint of each space.

For the bath the shower was made larger and he room was redone back to the Sheetrock. For the kitchen/den the wall between two rooms was removed and all appliances were relocated as a result. Old pine engineered beams from Richard’s sister company, The Olde Mill, were installed in both the bath and the kitchen/den,

Richard is easy to work with and had some unique ideas to address some issues in each remodel.

I would, and plan to for my future outdoor kitchen, use him again and recommend him to others.”


“Extremely helpful staff and loving the beam we bought for our fireplace!”
