Renovations and Remodeling


From repairing disaster caused by wind, lightning, flood or fire; or updating the look of your home from the gradual wear of years, we can do anything in the name of renovations and remodeling.

Today that includes "greening up" your home to be more energy efficient.  Old waterheaters, poor insulation, singlepane glass, drafty doors and windows are the equivalent of money blowing out of your pocket. "Keeping what you got" is the byword of the energy-efficient make over. We stay up with the latest technology and trends.

Homes no matter when they were built can benefit dramatically from one of our tailored renovation programs. Mark Davis has put in a lifetime of experience in "seamless age-matching." In other words, when we are done you won't be able to detect what is original and what is new. So it is possible to stay authentic even while you modernize your home. Popular projects include,

Case History

Tornado Damage


Hit by a tornado, the chapel had become a leaning Tower of Piza. Unsafe to enter and about to be condemned, except for one frivilous little detail: an important wedding had been schedule just 50 days away. Lazy River inspected the structure and felt it was salvagable. They brought in engineers to confirm the fact and started work with the clock ticking.


The structure was righted and an unobtrusive system of columns, trusses, braces and something more right out of the Rennaisance: flying butteresses, as seen in the famous Notre Dame of Paris and Westminister Abbey. The result was a chapel even more beautiful than it had ever been. And the wedding was held right on time.



barn1"We had searched high and low for some kind of modular building system that made sense, and Lazy River has the best system by far. The buildings are re-configurable so later you can use them for something else. Use one as a cabin. Later turn it into a garage. Of if you have three, you can stack them and make a house or a barn. It just makes good sense, and the workmanship is excellent so we expect they will last for many years." F.C.
hotel"My company uses Lazy River because 1) We can trust them, 2) They do the job right the first time, and 3) Mark Davis puts in an extraordinary level of creativity and imagination into everything he does. In a way, I think of him like I think of the fellows who work for Walt Disney -- where they try to 'plus' everything they do, meaning make it better and richer than anyone expects it to be. I understand that kind of thinking, because that's what we are about." L.T.
dance-studio"Lazy River Company did the renovations on my new dance studio and they (Mark) did a FANTASTIC job. I was really dreading the chore of having to explain to a contractor the necessity of getting the floor just right. Dancers require special flooring, with just the right materials, bounce, slide... all these factors. And our building was not a good candidate for the work. Mark totally took care of it, and understood what we needed from the start. Professional dancers that come here all comment on the quality of the dance surface." J.T.
church"We have worked with Lazy River on several projects and I can tell you for sure, it doens't matter what kind of project you throw at Mark Davis, he's knows how to do it and at fantastic quality, inside and out. Mark is one of those guys who -- when you pull back the cabinet to see the places the customer doesn't ever see -- he's taken care with every single detail. I guess "integrity" is the word. Structural integrity, design integrity -- beautiful design -- and personal integrity." C.B.
pool61"We've known and worked with Mark on several projects and he is really excellent. He knows what he's doing with all his years of experience, but more than that, Mark is actually an artist who takes great pride in doing the job... not just "right" -- but way better than anyone expected him to. He consistently "out does" himself on everything he does. That's the kind of craftsman/artist/engineer he is."  M.D.
