I have been working in the Ithaca and surrounding area since 2000 when I was a graduate student at Cornell University. I realized that being my own boss was a bigger calling than the educational training I received at Cornell. Better Living Spaces (BLS) exists as my way to build, create, and improve a space through meticulous attention to detail.
Although I run a small operation, I can do almost as many jobs as the big crews. There are lots of benefits of working with a small company: you are directly supporting someone in your community, you can work with the owner, and because we depend on word of mouth to get our next job,
we do a good job.
In addition to my home improvement/contracting work, my wife and I have rental properties in Ithaca, and with the help of three young children work on our
small hobby family farm.
Thank you for your time, I look forward to hearing from you.
Roofing and siding: It does not take a crew of 10+ (and a clean up crew) to do a good job. Careful planning and dedication can get the job done right!
Give us a chance!
Windows: From replacement to new windows, if you have a drafty home,
we can fix it.
Kitchen: The kitchen is the center piece of a home. Most of us wait until retirement to re-do the kitchen.
I will work meticulously to make sure that every detail is perfect.
Baths: Whether you are renovating or adding, a bathroom can drastically change the value of your home.
I can make it beautiful!
Additions: (come in all sizes) With the ability to scale up to meet your job needs, we can make your current home grow with you.
Creative ideas: who said built-ins were a thing of the past?! Interested in custom trim and intricate details?
Creative ideas are a true test of my craftsmanship and very rewarding.
