Cole Tile, Siding and Executive Master Bath in Bungalow# 1

As some of you might know I have been working on a television program . Myself and my crew have completely redone the exterior siding and trim of Bungalow 1, of The Chaz Dean Salon. In addition we have done all of the interior trim, tiling, and solving issues with different aspects of the job. As we go threw the season you will see my progress on the many different projects. I have photographed these to take you along my behind the scenes journey.

This is the Exterior Upper Balcony Floor tile and Siding (Facing Fountain Street).

My First Post - Casa De Magnolia

When I first sat down to design this website, I really thought I should showcase all of my projects that I have done in the past and am working on. But first I  would like to talk a little bit about FRETZ Design/Build Contractors. We are Designers and Builders who do a variety of different designing and building projects.   We travel all over the world to design and build different projects.

When we were approached to design and build this Colonial Spanish style home the client had a vision of a Old Spanish Mission that they had visited in Spain.  We brought his vision into reality with having a period house including all of the modern amenities of a new home.
