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,

We built this home in 1988. Recently the owners came to me wanting to upgrade the kitchen “without spending a fortune.” She did not love the cabinets, but they looked okay and were in good working order, “could we save … Continue reading
Lancaster, Pa Dark ceilings are dramatic! We painted the dining room ceiling of this recently completed custom home a deep eggplant purple, Benjamin Moore AF-650 caponata. Common wisdom (which often isn’t very wise) says that dark colors shrink a room. … Continue reading
