Story:

My brother and I ventured into smart home design and construction management to fill a growing need for improved quality, light, function and aesthetics at an affordable price.  Having completed numerous major renovations and home designs, friends started asking for our help because the prices they were quoted were astronomical, quality was lacking or they felt unheard in the design process.  My most recent design helped a customer save >30% off the cost of their 600 sq ft. addition in comparison to multiple alternate quotations.  We also provided a design in line with their aspirations to use a portion of the property that was under utilized.  We then worked with the owners and the county to obtain the required variance to make it happen on a corner lot.  In the end the customer felt we provided invaluable knowledge and alternative options that resulted in a design they loved.
