Enclosed Porch to Create a Sunroom

We added on a sunroom to this customer's existing Parker home. It turned out very nice and is a great extra space for them! We hope you enjoy the pictures and testimonial to the job!

Let us know if you or someone you know want to add or enclose a room!



Parker Homes built our home in 2005. Several builders have come in and develpoed in our subdivision. the houses built by Parker Homes have been the highest quality of the houses in our neighborhood. Our neighbors have repeatedly told us they wish Parker had built their homes.

The attention to detail and responsiveness to our needs lead us to come back again and contract with Parker Renovations to enclose our porch to create a sunroom on the back of the house in August 2008.

The design/estimate process has always been very professional. Work has always been completed on time, within budget and in an accommodating manner.

We should gladly recommend Parker Homes/Parker Renovations for consideration on any new construction, upgrade or renovations project to anyone.

A Rustic Getaway

This customer wanted to transform his guest house into a rustic getaway. We replaced the siding with vertical cedar planks and the posts with natural blonde cedar. We also replaced the old worn out composition roof with corrugated tin. We moved the entry doors and windows to better accommodate our customers needs. Inside, we refinished the wood floors, installed cedar baseboards with a corrugated tin wainscot, and applied a hand-troweled texture with faux-finish paint. We created a bathroom out of an existing storage area, complete with a concrete shower, toilet and antique vanity. The bathroom also has a walk-in closet, smooth cedar flooring, and a custom-built sliding cedar door (to resemble a barn door).

If you are in need of transforming a space into your dream getaway, please contact us!

Custom Water and Fire Fountain

Here is the finished product of the custom built water and fire fountain we did for our customers in Champions Village. It turned out awesome! There is a fire plate on the very top of the water bowl that overflows into a larger basin. The rock around the bottom matches the house. Its a nice feature to have for your outdoor living space!

Let us know if you or someone you know would like one! Its custom built so we can accommodate to your needs!

Thank you for "Helping a Teacher Out"

Well all the baskets are packed and ready to go!
But we wanted to take a moment and thank each and every one of you who donated items, money, time and even those who nominated and helped spread the word. Without all of you, this project would not have been a success. So THANK YOU!

Monetary Donations

What an awesome community we live in!
Stay tuned for the post about the reveals. We'll get it up as soon as we can.
Until then...
Here are a couple pics of all the baskets ready to go along with a folder full of gift cards and coupons for each teacher. I think we will have some very happy teachers! (And I will be happy to get my home back to normal as well!)

Convert Extra Space Into Bedroom

We've done several projects for these customers and the latest project we completed was converting an extra space they had (they used as an exercise/game room) into a bedroom complete with an entire wall of closet space, drawers and even a desk area. They are trying to sell their home and wanted to have an additional bedroom to add to the resale value of their home. (If you are interested or know someone that is interested in buying a home, ready to move in to, out at Rockwall Ranch, please let us know and we will put you in contact with our customers- Its a beautiful home!)

If you or someone you know are interested in converting a space you have into something else, please contact us! Thank you!

2nd story, Kitchen and Deck Addition/Remodel

We added on about 800 sq. ft. to this home. We added a 2nd story that included a bedroom, bathroom, and living area. We also remodeled the kitchen/dining/living/entry area downstairs. These customers also love being outside, so we created a great outdoor living space for them as well. It all turned out nicely and looks as though it should have always been there. We had a great time creating a more comfortable home for these customers!

Here is their testimonial of the job:
