Barn Doors In Blue

As a design-build contractor, Eddie DeRhodes of DeRhodes Construction creates his designs from the ground up, using his expert craftsmanship and keen eye for detail to tailor each project to the needs of his clients. In his entry, “Barn Doors in Blue,” he uses crisp whites for a wonderfully fresh look, and sculpted metal accents to provide a touch of rustic artistry throughout. The beautiful hanging blue barn doors by the Charlotte remodeler impart a nostalgic charm, and serve as a surprising function; they open to reveal a large hidden storage space.

Better Than Candy
