Professional Profile: When he founded New Spaces more than 30 years ago, Doug had no idea it would grow to the size it is now. What began as a handyman service continued on to become a first-class remodeling company. He really appreciates the difference the company’s work can make. Doug says, “It’s so rewarding to be able to stand back at the end of the job and feel that you’ve really accomplished something special. I’ve seen dramatic improvements in our customer’s homes and their lives really change because of it. When a family can now enjoy their time together in a new kitchen and entertain with ease, it really enhances the quality of their lives together. I love being able to help that happen.”

Now in “retirement”, Doug continues to lend his expertise and skill to projects for New Spaces, his family and lucky neighbors.
