All About the Basics
Knowledge. Experience. Passion.
With over 30 years of experience in the field, building, remodeling, and designing has given me a 360° view of the entire design process from start to finish. This "hands-on" approach stretches from laying bricks to creating fine cabinetry and more. Through the years I have had my hands on every tool that it takes to build a house. Today that experience is priceless — it helps to uncover hidden opportunities for adding value to every project that I work on.
A house is simply the sum of the bricks and sticks that it takes to build. A home is so much more. The design process for creating a home begins long before we put pencil to paper. We start by joining the pieces of the dream from past to present, knitting them together room by room, wall by wall until we have a plan. Through listening and getting to know each other, we build the dream into the plan. The house becomes the home. When we work together to achieve that, walking through every doorway is like waking up on Christmas morning. . . Joy.

A message to the future
On a beach along the north shore of Long Island lies the remains of a stone staircase originally constructed over 100 years ago. The timbers that framed the mansion have long since vanished, along with the craftsmen and designers who labored over them. . . and yet they speak.
