This is a site that I designed and built and maintained for about 8 years. It is for a local parent run community group that focuses on parent education and community initiatives. My version of the site is retired now.
New Ground Construction is a great local construction company that specializes in building green homes. Their website is built using the WordPress CMS, so they update their photos and content whenever they please. Take a look at their photo gallery for some inspiration.

The Town of Chaplin’s website was built in collaboration with my friends over at Logistics Consulting. Ben and Jessica are a crack team. Great attention to detail and all the technical skills you need to make ur website work for you. This site was built using the Joomla CMS, so the client can update the site themselves. Joomla is a very powerful CMS platform with high powered plugins for managing events, online purchases, calendars, and more. Most people find that Joomla takes a little more time to learn how to use.
This site belongs to Brad Dobeck. I built it for him using SquareSpace, a CMS service. He updates the content regularly and the site has outstanding search engine results. If you know anyone that wants to go to law school, definitely take at look at PrelawAdvisor.com!
The Healthy Alternative Market is owned and operated by my clients Heidi and Sara Zelonka. Their store is located in Storrs/Mansfield, CT. They wanted a simple website that would integrate the logo that had been designed by their graphic artist and convey basic information about their store.
“The Healthy Alternative is dedicated to bring you organic, natural foods including vegan and the most extensive selection of gluten free products in the area. We carry grains, juices, baking products, cheese, local eggs, fresh Bell & Evans chicken and much more.” And if you are looking for gluten-free things, you should definitely stop in and see what they have!

Woodstock Hill Preserves is owned and operated by my client, Maureen Estony. Maureen is a great example of an independent, do-it-yourself client. I set up her WordPress based site, mostly by integrating her existing business logo into a simple template. She does the rest – even added a shopping cart to the site herself.
Did you know that there are WordPress apps that will let you update your website from your iPhone, Android phone or iPad? It certainly gives a business owner on the go a lot of flexibility.
Neighbors Paper is owned and distributed by the wonderful Tom King. This great little paper is free and available throughout Eastern Connecticut. Tom previously had a CMS based site that confusing and not flexible enough. We kept his hosting with the same company but did an overhaul on the site, switching it to a WordPress CMS. Now updating the site is not only faster but easier, too. And we both think it looks better now. 🙂
The Northeaset Connecticut Farmers Markets are farmers markets held most days of every week, Spring through Fall. That’s a lot of opportunity to get FRESH LOCAL food! They are organized and attended by an amazing group of farmers in the “Quiet Corner” of Connecticut.
Northeast Connecticut Farmers’ Markets are open in Danielson, Putnam, Brooklyn and Plainfield from June through October. Local farmers offer their own fruit, vegetables, and flowering plants for sale, freshly picked, often just before the market opens.
Visit their website, but even better go see them at the Markets!
Ross Physical Therapy is owned and operated by Rick Ross. This site used to be a “static html” site that I built for them using Dreamweaver. But when they moved and needed their address and some content updated, I took the opportunity to convert the site to WordPress. I think my favorite part of this site is the testimonials, because he is a very talent physical therapist, and this part of the site really makes that apparent to visitors. At this point, I do most of the content updates to the site when needed, but as a CMS site, they are able to make changes as well.
