Back to Dasburg!

University of Florida president, Dr. Kent Fuchs, and wife Linda graciously hosted an evening BBQ this past Wednesday, June 10th, in appreciation of all of the contractors and trades people who worked so diligently to complete the UF Dasburg president’s house.

Dr. Fuchs then announced that for the rest of the evening the Dasburg would be completely opened and that all were free to roam the house and admire their and other’s handiwork. What a great surprise!   We were able to capture some additional photos of the home and the flooring we provided. Enjoy!
