What we have done
“We demolished the existing weatherboard house and built a symmetrical pair of spacious two-story houses.”
my favorite room
The living room with its twenty-foot ceiling and north-facing windows. “The ceiling height lets in so much natural light.”
“I love that we are a short walk from Malabar’s beach and cafes. It has a quiet suburban feel while being close to town. I fell in love with the neighborhood.”
“I have my office on the mezzanine floor and enjoy the beautiful light and views through the tall windows. However, I would like to glaze it for privacy.”
“Be organized about finishes and fixtures prior to construction. Once you’ve made your decisions, trust that you’ve made them right.”
