So, this was installed yesterday…Nate’s flair for metalwork and Tim’s creative concrete top designs made a showpiece! This Harley bar was custom built for a customer who wanted it to be the focal piece for her entertaining area. Unfortunately, the pictures do not showcase the bike chain footrest, or the gear support brackets too much! Overall, from design to finished product, it was a fun project. The boys really came through! Nick even jumped in on this one as he has decided to add cabinetry (on the backside) to his expertise list! A Big Shout out to James, Chuck and Andy for all their help to make this project come together!

The Show is a Go! The Midland Home Builders Association of Michigan is hosting the long-anticipated 2022 Home & Outdoor Expo! After last year’s unfortunate cancellation, this year’s show looks promising for many reasons. First of all, the show has a new home-Dow Diamond-and it is a vendor packed event! You do not want to miss this one! Secondly, people are excited to be out and about. After almost two years of being unsocial, people are looking forward to seeing vendors and what they have to offer. Finally, the home building and renovation markets are still booming! People want change-whether it is a new place, home renovation or simply landscaping projects! The home expo provides the best opportunity to seek out resources to help facilitate such changes! Designs by Davis is ready to be a part of your future. From Conception to Completion, Designs by Davis would love to help you make your dream project a reality! From new construction and home renovations to concrete countertops and metal fabrication, stop by booth #57 (inside the main concourse level) to see what we have to offer.
This customer had granite countertops they hoped to utilize in their new kitchen design, but it was not quite enough for the whole plan. They reached out to Tim to see if he could manufacture concrete pieces that would match the dark granite to complete the design. Tim was more than excited to meet the challenge as he recently found some new dyes. These dyes not only create a richer, black color, but also a much brighter white (pictures of the white will be in the next post). Yeh…since we have had plenty of requests for white the past few months. Needless to say, the new product colors blended well with the dark granite, and Tim was able to create the perfect pieces to complement the kitchen!
This project was a blast!! From conception to completion, Designs by Davis enjoyed creating a little haven for this special couple who needed more room. What started as a small addition during conception, turned into a spacious wing upon completion with its own convenient laundry area, bathroom, walk-in closet, and cozy bedroom.
First stop is the laundry room and walk-in closet. Located just steps from the walk-in closet, the laundry room streamlines the dreaded dirty chore! It is the perfect size-just enough room to get the job done without the clutter collecting space that always invites the ‘I’ll put it away later’ items.
The walk-in closet is bright, small, and sweet which again discourages clutter, an obvious customer requirement.
Next up, the bath. Earthy tones of the custom tiled shower work well with the crisp, clean, white vanity and linen closet. The three small windows not only provide a modern look, but also allows the perfect amount of natural light to brighten the room. Tying the bright whites with the off whites, the concrete countertop and sink bowl add to the modern style.
Finally, the master bedroom with its wooden floor, bright white walls, trim, and barn door is simple, yet stylish. The highlight is the almost flashy fandelier which adds just a touch of sparkle. This sparkle paired with the colorful handmade quilt give the room a warm and comfortable ambience. All together this design makes the perfect little retreat.
According to the trendy renovation PROREMODELER magazine, people want space! Is this due to Covid isolation? Maybe! One thing is for sure, people who want an updated kitchen want real estate! There are many reasons for this demand, from ‘work at home’ needs and homeschool spaces, to an increase in family gatherings. Traditionally, kitchens have always been an important place in the home, and today’s trends seems to echo this. Thus, it only makes sense to consider a large island or peninsula to create a multitask workspace when considering a renovation project.
Designs by Davis loves to create and install such concrete workspaces. And it is true, the bigger the better! Not only does it make the kitchen feel more welcoming, but it also allows the ‘cook’ to be part of the family gatherings. It is a cozy area for people to share a cup of coffee and solve all the world’s problems (I wish!). Check out some of our projects. If you like what you see, shoot us a message…We would love to help you create a workspace to accommodate your needs!
One never knows what to expect with a remodel. At first this looked like a straight forward project. However, once the guys started to remove the broken concrete pad, they ran into structural problems and had to replace the existing beams and foundation. Once disaster was diverted, the room came together nicely.
The shiplap walls and water proof vinyl flooring where chosen because of the temperature fluctuations associated with a sun room. Since part of the room is under the existing deck, the guys used Rain Tight Under Decking to keep the rain outside. The Rain Tight product was fairly easy to work with and the customer loved how it matched the shiplap.
