W hat started as a plan to fix a roof
V V leak on the Koppy family's home in
Bloomfield Township, evolved into a
complete exterior renovation of their
1960s era French colonial.
"It's totally different," said David Koppy,
who shares the 3,600-square-foot home
with wife Elissa, children, Adam and
Falynn, and dog, Shayna. "We feel like
we're living in a brand new home."
Armed with a custom set of architectural
plans, Gittleman transformed the entire
elevation, adding lodge-style cultured
stone, preserving and redeploying
existing brick, extending the porch and
reconfiguring the garage roofline.
Throughout the,project, the Koppys'
daily routine was never disrupted — a
critical point considering that David and
Elissa run a home-based computer
The work went so well, in fact, David recommended the company for his sister's home renovation.
So, if you're looking for a simple correction, or a dramatic home makeover, Gittleman has

From Bud Sherbow ... A pirate walked
into a bar and the bartender said,
"Hey, I haven't seen you in a while.
What happened? You look terrible!"
"What do you mean? I'm fine."
"What about that wooden leg? You
didn't have that before."
"Well," said the pirate, "we were in a
battle at sea and a cannonball hit my
leg, but the doc fixed me up, and I'm
"Oh yeah? Well, what about that
hook? The last time I saw you, you
had both hands."
"Well, we were in battle and we
boarded the enemy ship. I was in a
sword fight and my hand was cut
off, but the doc fixed me with the
hook, and I feel great, really."
"Oh," said the bartender, "what
about that eye patch? The last time
you were in here you had both eyes."
"One day when we were at sea,
some birds were flying over the ship.
I looked up and one of them took a
dump in my eye."
"You're kidding," said the bar-
tender, "You couldn't have lost an
eye just from some bird doo!"
"It was my first day with the
hook," said the pirate. ❑

this particular dish, Darbys
Chicken Poulette, called for
three kinds of cheese.
"After speaking to the
owner of the restaurant, Gary
Tringale, he promised to sub-
stitute all three cheeses with
soy cheese. The dish was deli-
cious and I'm thrilled to be
able to enjoy food at another restaurant
in the area without worrying about the
side effects that lactose intolerant peo-
ple get from dairy products.
"I know there are a lot of readers who
suffer like I do from dairy products.
Please call me so that we can compare
notes on what products to buy at the
store (some with dairy substitutes are
just evil!) and what restaurants to go to.
You can reach me at (248) 354-6060."
