Warm Weather and Breaking Ground

Spring is here and ground is breaking everywhere! We have another well planned custom home underway in North Liberty Iowa. All is platted, marked, erosion control is in place and top soil reserve is stockpiled. Breaking ground is exciting for the homeowners and builders alike.

Prestige in Small Packages

There has been a growing trend in home building to include high style in a smaller envelope. among the many benefits of this concept are a smaller eco friendly footprint with lower utilities, higher quality products to enhance everyday living and my personal favorite, less to clean and maintain leaving more time for extracirricular fun. 2095 front web sized

Capturing a Moment

Everyday life can be full of ups and downs. Busyness and exhaustion can take the place of peace and joy. Each home that we design and build is created with real life in mind. While the beautiful photos you see capture the perfection of a clean, well decorated show home, the final homestead is really a place where you can kick off your shoes, put up your feet and live in beauty and comfort as though you were on vacation.

I have often said, “If I could only create the self cleaning home I would be a multi billionaire!”

The light shopping dilemma…..

There are so many things to weigh when shopping for lighting for your home. Quality, style, timelessness, warranty and then there are those pesky things like price and adequate brightness. I have often referred to lighting as the jewelry of your home. While I am sure I am not the first or only designer to say this, I am certain it applies to each and every homeowner. Some enjoy simple clean lines, others are very classic and traditional, there is the very safe “transitional” category of lighting now and then there is my personal favorite, eccelectic.

The hands down best advice I have to offer: dont’ get cought up in the minute details of the fixture. You will likely be 6 or more feet away from a fixture when you are viewing and not likely to look at it straight on. You will know instinctively what you ike just by opening some of your favorite catalogues. Once you get the general direction you can narrow items by price point, size and quality.

Always arrange all of your findings in some type of computer page. Looking at all your fixtures together can help you quickly identify if you need more variety or if everything is cohesive. Most of all, have fun! You are inessence putting the final dressing touches on your fabulous new home!
