Big News From Eileen Gould Design & Construction

Where has 2017 gone? Remember when your mother told you “Don’t rush the years away?” Well, here we are with Thanksgiving creeping up on us, as well as Christmas, Chanukah & New Years. 2017 has been an amazing year, bringing many blessings both personally and professionally. I have been given the greatest gift of a new grandson, Asher James, who is 6 months old…and boy, do I just adore him. My office manager, Krisie Stone is terrific, and of course Kathy, my right arm, stands beside me always. Graduating with my Masters in December 2016 from “Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses” has introduced me to so many contacts, and has taught me how to do business more effectively. Thankfully, with our experience, knowledge and new information, we have exceeded our clients’ expectations with our remodeling and designing of kitchens and baths, furniture layouts, window treatments and floor plans.

The Case for LED Lighting

On numerous occasions in our blog, we’ve discussed the enormous importance of lighting. But we’ve never fully given LED lighting the attention that it truly deserves. Today, that error shall be rectified.
