The front stoop/step of the house was pitched badly at the basement, causing most of the water problem. In addition to the stoop, there was an enormous pine tree, with 50 years of agressive roots invading the front of the building.
The before and after results were as follows.
We removed the tree, the volume of roots, and pitched the front stoop away from the home. The problem now solved, the water redirected, the landscaping is the project to follow.

I work with the RTAcabinetstore and I appreciate the comment that was left… these cabinets are close to 100%consistent–when the cabinets are in a kitchen, they look fantastic. If you realize that when you purchase these cabinets, you are getting a quality cabinet at about half the price of a Big Box Retail store; you then can accept any small imperfections that blend in at the time of the finished product.
