Here I share the projects that I am currently working on, or that have been newly released to the wild...or for permit, but saying I released them to the wild is much more fun.

Sprawling Floor Plan

Country properties are the best. The floor plan isn’t put under as many restrictions as a small city lot. You get more space, more windows, and the ability to take better advantage of the sun.

Pantry Spaces

The amount of cabinetry in a kitchen can be greatly reduced if you add a pantry space to hold extra food, appliances, and cooking supplies. If you’ve ever priced out cabinetry, then you’ll know that this can really help the budget!

Modern Touches

This home took traditional shapes and used modern materials to make it a beautiful blend of the past and present. I expect homes like this to blend into the future as well to evade specific styles being attached to specific points in time.

Creamy Colouring

Cream is one of those colours that seems to transcend time. You’ll find it on historic homes all the way up to homes built today.

If you’re looking for a classic colour combination, cream is a good bet!

Home Office Access

More and more people are working from home. After the initial fun of wearing pajamas while at your desk wears off and you actually get dressed for real every day, then the thought of client meetings comes to mind.

You want to keep your privacy even when clients come by to discuss a project. Why not have a separate entrance specifically for them?

This house allows the front porch to be dual use. One for family and friends that come over, but also for clients that are popping by for a quick chat. Such convenience!

Fresh Farmhouse Exterior

I love a good ‘was it built today or years ago’ question.

Like this home’s exterior, for example:

It follows a more traditional farmhouse look, but it has the more up-to-date construction so you won’t have a drafty house! It’s the best of both worlds!

Room Flow for Separate Schedules

What if you and your partner wake at different times? How do you get ready without disturbing the other?

Easy peasy.

Create a room flow that allows one person to get up and go into the bathroom, close the door, and then not need to go back into the bedroom at all.

Like this one where one person can shower, then get dressed, and then exit through the laundry room into the hallway. Voila!

Trimmed Out Windows

The trim around your windows and doors can completely change the style of your home.

This home screamed for a classic, yet strong look. Mission accomplished with these chunky pre-cast surrounds.

Lit Up Garage

Although I can’t guarantee your garage will be spider-free, I can vouch for how bright your garage would be with the addition of a glass overhead door so those little creepy little leggy buggers have nowhere to hide.

You can frost the glass too so your contents aren’t on display.

The difference that these doors make to your garage is huge!

Wide Open Spaces

High ceilings, no dividing walls, and lots of windows contribute to making this cottage layout feel like it’s an extension of the outdoor space. Truly room to breathe here!
