“We are enjoying our home so much. There is no way to express how grateful we are for your hard work and artistic vision that helped to create our home. …we wake up every morning in our wonderful ‘bedroom tree house’ and feel so fortunate.”

- Melinda Johnson

About the Project:

Our clients, a young and young minded family with modest needs and an even more modest site, asked us to create a comfortable and flexible home.  Moreover, they asked that their home be reminiscent of places they experienced on recent travels in Italy.  What better way to expand and open a home than to wrap it around a courtyard?  This one, acting as a fair-weather family room, serves to expand all surrounding rooms, bring light to interior spaces, and afford a private outdoor family space.
