As a full service residential designer, two of my biggest passions in life are building homes from the ground up and bringing run down properties back to life. After working on these types of projects for clients, I decided it was time that I put these passions to work for myself. Since starting my own business, more and more I’ve wanted a place that could be a living portfolio to showcase my design ideas and use as both a home and a separate office space. And it would be a huge bonus if I could give my dog his own room!
I found the perfect home on a walk through through the neighborhood.
A 1924 historic spanish style home on a corner lot, the only one of its kind around. It was the kind of classic home that could work with a modern interior and not be too much of a disconnect from the exterior architecture. I called the owner and had a look inside. It was an absolute wreck, but I had a vision, and I had fallen in love. I knew what it could be with some passion and committed work. We signed the closing documents and rolled up our sleeves. It was time to bring this property back to life!
