Our clients were considering a renovation of their home when a tree fell and demolished their house beyond repair. So, realizing that they could start with a clean slate, this empty nest couple they told us they wanted to create a home that was “cozy, lively, charming, warm, peaceful, stimulating, and harmonious”. Translation: they wanted the home to have a cottage look but with interesting architectural features. We designed and built a functional four bedroom, three and a half bath, three story home on their ¼ acre lot… and built it with a lot of heart and soul.
