 Browse our portfolio of Specialty Craftsmanship projects and begin to imagine how we can customize your home.
Some of our leading-edge design projects include open post and beam timbers on a porch, great room, or library.  The presentation of our timelessly handcrafted, exposed beams with a tongue and groove vaulted ceiling exudes warmth, character, and distinctive architecture that are unparalleled. Whether you are inclined to a massive, natural stone fireplace with a custom mantle, or a sliding, rustic barn door to your study, our exceptional design team and craftsmen can create the atmosphere in your home you desire.  
Interior trim defines a home. Beautiful crown moldings with wainscoting add great architecture and value. Coffered, tray, cove or barrel vaulted ceilings bring sophistication to any room. Built-in entertainment units and window seats to curl up in and read a book make a home warm, comfortable and functional. Custom niches can be built to showcase beautiful art. Unique interior columns can provide support, divide spaces or be built around unattractive steel columns in basement. Inlaid hardwood flooring or a beautifully detailed staircase adds drama and elegance. All are great opportunities to add classic beauty and visual impact.
A home theater with state of the art technology is a great place to relax with friends and family in a beautifully finished basement. Add a fiber optic ceiling with a starry night skies effect and perhaps a personalized marquee. Enjoy a glass of wine afterwards you’re your stunning temperature controlled wine cellar with intricate floating wood wine racks complete with LED lights highlighting each bottle.
An outdoor living space can make a beautiful extension to your home. Be the envy of your neighborhood with a luxury outdoor kitchen with a state-of-the-art grill with natural stone countertops. The amenities can be limitless; cabinetry, refrigerator, sink, a warming drawer, vent hood, even a pizza oven. Outdoor kitchens can be as functional as they are beautiful. A fully furnished open air living room could include an outdoor flat screen TV with surround-sound, a stone fireplace, even a pergola. With beautiful landscape design, an in-ground pool and spa with a cabana, who would ever want to go back inside?

When M.J. Whelan builds a new home or does a major renovation, we will work with you to design and create any specialty project you have. Whether your style is contemporary, modern, rustic, traditional or eclectic, we will customize your home to fit the lifestyle you desire using modern technology, thoughtful design and old world craftsmanship. What can we do for you?
