As I grew up on the construction job site working for my father, l discovered early on that I loved the process of construction and had a great appreciation for the skilled craftsmanship that was required. I was eager to learn the art of architecture and was inspired by historic structures, fascinated by the intricate details. In June of 2007, I was able to fulfill a lifelong dream of designing and building my own home. I would not advise most people to work full-time, raise a 1-year old, and build a house where you perform 80% of the work yourself; but, with the help of family and friends, we moved in 17 months later. I enjoy going through this process with our clients, helping them meet their needs, desires, and dreams for their buildings. It is not always easy, but to me nothing is more fulfilling and gratifying.
