As some in our community may know, or possibly have seen, there is an old house getting renovated at Holly Point Rd. West.

That old house, built in 58’, happens to be a renovation project that Dura and it’s sister company, Ezer Construction are undertaking for a very special client….

OK joking aside, this project is for Danny Garcia, our Principal Architect, and his family. They are expecting twin boys next month! Congratulations!

Among the many improvements planned, re-pipe, mostly re-wire, new roof, and other functionally new items. The most important improvement, however, came when Danny was designing the improvements  during the due diligence period of the contract.
