Storage Solutions

Spring cleaning is great, but fall organizing is a must before the cold weather hits and you are stuck inside. As the nation has moved toward the new trend of “tiny” homes and minimalist living, unique storage solutions have become ever more important for a functional living space.

As part of the BLB Custom Building design/build format, General Contractor Ben Becker works with the homeowner to design custom solutions for their family’s unique storage needs, and accommodate any particular possessions.
