Everyone can buy our building products, not everyone can turn them into art. Meet Concrete Concepts & Designs! (Townsend, MA)

by Tim Beausoleil

[Guest Blog Post by Tim Beausoleil of Townsend, MA based "Concrete Concepts & Designs". Enjoy!]


"Earlier this spring, prior to starting my seventeenth year in the concrete business, I took stock of where my company was, where it has been and where it was going. Unlike any great undertaking in life, it's often not the end result but the journey that defines success. As the owner of Concrete Concepts & Designs in Townsend, Massachusetts, there's been few service providers that have helped me grow my business, complete challenging and innovative projects on-time and under budget like the A.H. Harris & Sons, Inc. In fact, Harris has literally changed the landscape of decorative concrete. In a few short years, the designs and products have made their way into people's homes and the indoor spaces of business around the world. The idea that concrete can look and feel like nearly any traditional floor covering with a much wider choice of colors, textures and finishes is the most exciting concept our industry has seen in a long time.
