It looks like you used the Oakland wordpress theme designed by CMS masters?

Yes, that is the theme I used as a base. I could have customized it more but I pretty much rushed it to get it up. All images associated with the site are my design/ work. the photo in the one banner is a stock I used from my stock photo account.

I'll message you the site when I get some time to sit and customize it a little more, you will be shocked on how It changes the theme up.

I usually gut the theme completely and use a purchased theme as a skeleton. since I have very little knowledge in coding itself I know enough of CSS and am proficient in photoshop. I would have designed my site from scratch, but I dont have the money to pay for a coder at the moment.

Not sure if you're looking for advice, but if you are, I'd recommend either a slider or side-by-side jpg's instead of your before and after animated gifs. Since they're photos in .gif format, they are massive at 1.05mb each, killing your load times (I'm showing close to 3 second load times and 3.77mb for the home page).

Yea, I see what you mean, I will switch that up to side by sides.

I just changed the navi up so it looks less like oakland, what do you think?

Looks ok i suppose, In the contact section you need to add some contrast behind the contrast form, its all white and washed out, you cant even see where your supposed to click to add your information.

If you want feedback when you're done with it, just yell.

Hey, I just got done messing with it a little more, took away the gifs put side by sides let me know what you think...

I also tried to add border around contact I have it so when you click on the text area a green border appears but without clicking it still looks washed out, I will have to take a better look at the css later on

Yea still looks washed out, try adding a backround color not a border.
