Here are some reasons why we need/want/beg for your vote in each:

Best Home Improvement Company

We don’t do home improvements but we plan for them. Without a solid plan in advance of starting your home improvements you are bound to run into unexpected challenges and the details likely will not fall perfectly in place. We work hard to understand materials, building science, structural capacities, and trends to help guide you to just the right solution to meet your goals. We also created this helpful resource tool for people thinking about building a custom home to make it more fun. We work hard to help you achieve your dream home, after all, #designmatters.

Best Home Improvement Company

Best Company to Work For

We think being the best company to work for might be hard for you to judge since you probably don’t work for us – after all, there are only 12 of us and there are millions and millions of you reading our blog posts. So here are some fun facts about working here. We have 200+ years of combined experience. The average tenure of employees at the firm is over 15 years (this includes Annie that has been here since January) showing people love to stay here. We have fun celebrating each other. We celebrate birthdays, holidays, donut day, and even pizza day. We volunteer together in the community. We like being the best at things, so why not be the best place to work. Last – we create coloring books for our projects, what could be more fun than that?

Best Gallery Space

We think having the best artists, food, and building for a gallery automatically makes us the Best Gallery Space! Come on, it is the Depot after all. I don’t think there is a cooler building in town, of course, I am a little biased about being in love with this building. We put out a massive array of food and drinks for our guests each month. Most important, we have the coolest artists exhibiting in our space which is really the point – to support local artists. Many of our artists have exhibited for the first time in our gallery. We don’t charge a gallery fee, we pay for all the food and drink, and we invite over 1,000 people to attend each month. We also have our own parking lot. So other than being 1/4 mile from court square, I cannot think of a reason why we are not the best Gallery in Rocktown.
