We’re a husband and wife team that loves working together. We have six kids, two dogs, and love to sit down to noisy family dinners.
Our paths always felt like they were leading to where we are now, doing what we were meant to be doing. A degree in International Business and Economics, a successful career in fashion and clothing design, leaving the corporate world for freelance writing – our careers have been varied and fulfilling but we always wanted to work together.
So we did.
For more than 20 years, we’ve been building custom homes. We’ve enjoyed the robust times and endured the bleak ones that come with this industry and love working with clients to create a place they will call home – applying the knowledge and experience from past careers to this one in creative and exciting ways.
We work out of our house which we use as a “lab” to help clients visualize color, cabinet layout, window placement, drywall finish, the blending of tile and hardwoods and the textures that go into a house. We inform framing and electrical work with knowledge gleaned from the worlds of design and fashion. We try to see things differently and have been surprised and delighted by the things we have found.
Like most couples, we try to find balance between work and family and finding ways to creatively recharge. We do pottery. We cook.
Our success largely comes from listening. From taking the time to learn how you’ll live in your home and then applying our creative energies to crafting a space that suits your life perfectly.
We love what we do and are excited to do more of it.
