    If it doesn’t work right away, – – just try back in a bit.

    Been having major server problems for the last week or so, – – they’re workin’ on it, they say . . .



    Nice site – I love the background image you have!

    I also like the lightbox you have in the sidebar that allows you to leave comments through Facebook.

    I wish you were in my area – I want a deck/patio/something done in my yard, but haven’t pulled the trigger…

    Susan @ Graphically Designing I offer theme customizations I tweet!
    I’ve taken up the challenge! – help me answer some of the unanswered posts



    Thanks Susan, – – that’s not really my area, – – that site I’m showing is a site I made for a long-distance friend. I’m actually in central/southern New Jersey, and my own remodeling site is  It’s not wordpress, it’s all hand-coded, – – and it’s actually the first site I made (several years ago).



    I’d like to see more contrast in the header between the background and the type. I like the grey stone effect – though it would work better on a bolder typeface – and I’m a sucker for blue-sky treatments. Love them! In fact, my tagline could be Turning The Web Blue And Green . . . But I think you need to pick one or the other and commit. Given that this is a construction business, that would probably mean the stone.

    And, as I said, the stone texture treatment would work better on a heavier weight of the typeface.

    Other than that, good start!

    Sharing the good news about the wonders of web typography and the split-step. Either one should get you moving fast. ;-)
