For the past 22 years I have been designing and building homes and additions. I have learned a lot about collaborating with people to help them achieve a home that is both beautiful and functional. I've developed insights into improving how people live in their homes and a lot of design ideas, this is where I share them.
I hope you find these blogs interesting. If you are looking to make changes to your home--or tear it down and start over again--don't hesitate to contact me. I would love to have the opportunity to work creatively with you.
And, yes, if you've seen it on HGTV, we can do it.
Thanks for reading,

Ever wonder why Nordstrom’s and Wal-Mart feel so different? Besides the obvious radical differences in the merchandise, they are “lit” very differently. Nordstrom’s lights their merchandise using focused spot lights, so the store is dimly lit giving a calm feeling … Continue reading
