FEATURES:
You're the Tops
For three years now, we have gone to you, our readers, to find out who and what you trust to make your projects hit the high marks. You'll find some familiar and trusted names, but there are new discoveries as well -- the shop in Boston that does wonders with Corian, the structural engineer who just won't give up on you no matter how crazy the idea, the off-the-shelf fixtures that look anything but. Culled from hundreds of conversations and survey responses, and using your own words and works as proof, here's a roll call that truly represents the best in our business.
