Why we do it:


There is a need for those people whose families have grown. Most building lots in our area do not allow for additions. The only way is up, Thus the name of our business Up And Up.


There are other reasons as well; one customer wanted a bigger front yard and more room. He got it by using the dirt we dug out from under the cottage for a basement and the rocks we found we created a nice natural retaining wall and a level front yard with rock stairs down to the lake.


We do it because we take pride in our work and love doing it but mostly it is for the look on the customer’s faces when they first see it completed.

You just can’t beat that!
