Question: What are some of the most interesting projects your firm has completed?

All of our projects are interesting, but a couple of our larger projects involved tearing down an existing home and building a new home, and totally gutting the interior of a home that had a living room and family room, and converting it to a great room plan.

Choice lots are getting harder to find, so tear downs and total renovations are becoming more common.

When you go into an established community and tear down a home, it presents special challenges. The main challenge is protecting adjoining property and keeping the neighbors happy.

During the design process we work especially hard to be sensitive to the character of the neighborhood.

Take a peek at a floor plan BEFORE tear down and AFTER.

What Is Important In Good Kitchen Design?

Today’s kitchens are the heart and soul of the home. Good design means the room must be both functional and a pleasure to be in, while still reflecting the feel of the rest of the house.

The kitchen layout has to have a balance between storage, function and aesthetics. We like to sit down with a client to find out what their needs are and how they use the kitchen.

We also work with their style and taste, blending it with the style of the house, to make the final product the envy of those who have not yet updated their kitchen.
