Doing what inspires you every day is a gift. When you share that gift with others, you give your inspiration meaning. My parents taught me those lessons, not from anything they said, but from what they did. When I was a child growing up on a small farm, my father, Max and I were always building SOMETHING. It didn’t matter what it was. If we could envision it, we were building it. It was a joyful experience then and the feeling remains with me today.
My mother Phyllis, enriched me in a different way. My memories of her are of always having a tape measure, drafting paper and a straight edge. With these tools she would endlessly be designing a kitchen, living room, or any part of three residences I watched her build, and enjoyed being raised in. During that time, I was instilled with my mother’s love of design and architecture and the satisfaction of bringing a home to life. It was a wonderful time and those memories are the cornerstone for the company we have built today. The wisdom and guidance of my parents is always with me and with every home I build or remodel.
