I'm a residential designer

and I like nothing better than

making something out of nothing

turning a sow's ear into a silk purse

turning a tear-down into a family home



Coming the long way 'round to the home design business, I've now been at it for more than twenty years. Though new homes are always a treat, finding the good bones in a house that no one thought was worth the trouble is one of the most rewarding activities I can imagine. Turning the despair of boxy rooms, bad layout, bad plumbing and worse wiring into a family home to be proud of requires persistence, patience and the willlingness to think around corners.


Creativity is a given.

Years of memories were stored in this tired old beach house. Untouched since the 60's it now needed to serve not one, but two extended families.
