Aloha Construction is a general construction company out of Illinois. While their services primarily occur in Illinois, they also assist those living in Southern Wisconsin. The company specializes in a handful of jobs including roofing, gutter work, siding, and door/window work. To begin, roofers will thoroughly inspect each roof prior to working on it. They will make sure that they choose the absolute best style for a particular roof. Roofs can deteriorate over time and will need to be fixed. Without proper quality, your roof can leek and cause other problems. Gutters are another specialty job of Aloha Construction. Gutters are very tricky to work with considering that they are located on your roof. Gutters serve the purpose of running water off your roof and away from your home. When gutters don’t function properly they lead to a number of issues. This can lead to problems such as mold, ground erosion, and wet basements. To avoid these issues, let Aloha Construction fix your gutters. These workers are trained and experienced to make sure that gutters properly displace excess water. Siding is another specialty that workers at Aloha Construction do well. Siding serves multiple purposes for your home. First, siding protects your home from weather and other factors that could damage it. Siding also gives your home a personal feel and look. Workers at this company can do an amazing siding job for you. They will get the job done in a timely fashion. Finally, Aloha Construction workers can help you with your next door/window job. Both doors and windows can be tricky to work with. Although it may seem simple, its not. Doors are very heavy and difficult to properly install. Windows also require a close attention to detail to do correctly. Contact Aloha Construction for help today.

Full-service interiors company Richard Mishaan Design has built an impressive list of Manhattan clients over the years. His work as an interior designer for New York’s elite has now grown to include his own accessories firm, Homer Design. The Richard Mishaan Design aesthetic combines the collected pieces of his clients with newer, often custom, pieces that create a unique and individualistic feeling in their homes.

A native of Colombia, Richard Mishaan Design’s owner studied at both NYU and Columbia University, studying both design & architecture. Following his formal study, Richard Mishaan began an apprenticeship with the highly-esteemed offices of Philip Johnson prior to founding his own design firm.

Richard Mishaan Design recently completed a project in Mishaan’s native Colombia, in Cartagena, that is an illustrative example of the techniques used by Richard Mishaan Design with such success. The first, most striking, realization is the visual contrast between both old and new pieces as well as traditional and contemporary design styles. These paradoxes create a conversation between the pieces and the styles that is welcoming and unique.

The Cartagena project is its most successful when there is a combination of different textures, styles and materials. The formal and traditional wood paneled entryway with an arched doorway opens to a modern and light-filled living space with polished tile flooring. The contrast is striking and comforting at the same time.

It is through juxtapositions such as these that Richard Mishaan has continued to delight his clients and distinguish himself from the pack. Mishaan is also a successful author of two well-received books entitled Modern Luxury and Artfully Modern, both published by Random House’s Monacelli Press. Design enthusiasts follow Richard’s career with great enthusiasm, knowing that whatever project he undertakes will be executed with mastery and skill. His ability to embrace the old and the new is a true gift.
