We have not been designing homes professionally for years and years. We don't have hundreds of completed jobs to our credit, just thousands of ideas in our heads!
We feel very fortunate to be a part of this journey and would like to invite you along as well. We'll be posting plans and decisions from beginning to end. We want your input. You just might be the tie breaker on difficult decisions. Let's get started. Are you as excited about this project as we are? Are you up for all the decisions that have to be made?
It's your turn.
