    - Rich M, Attorney at Law Office of Richard J. Murphy, PLC

  • “We’ve contracted with Ray and Nucleus Construction to complete several, extremely detailed projects in our home. Ray’s talent for executing clean, modern design was exactly what we needed, as our vision involved elements outside the scope of most contractors’ expertise.
