The Renovation

Promise Kept

This web site offers a pictorial insight into the history, motives, inspirations, and construction of our renovation to our ‘mid-century modern’ style Florida beach home aptly named Promise Kept. 

We offer a comprehensive photo log that tracks the process of the transformation and serves as a heritage record of the project.
