The purpose of architecture is to encourage and support life giving activity, dreams, and playfulness. Buildings are technically better these days–more sturdy, more waterproof, more energy efficient– but they have become more sterile, rarely providing the kind of environment in which people are emotionally nourished, happy, and contented. We adhere to design instincts that push towards homes that are life-giving, and playful. Our projects are alive and vibrant.

We grew up around construction. Our families worked on projects. Every home was redesigned, modified, or built from the ground up by our parents. Conversations always orbited the planets of design and function and for the last 19 years Estee and I have been working in and around single family residential real estate. Our process hinges on listening and observing. We work to strip away the unnecessary so that it does not get in the way of life.

This is something we do for fun. We love God’s gift to us, the joy of creativity. We build neat houses, restore neat old trucks, sew, weld, and do leather stuff. We explore ideas daily, using whatever tools get us where we want to go.

Currently Estee is completing the design of a couple of project houses for clients while Rob is working at the national level to design, build, and manage the disposition platforms that help efficiently manage and sell residential inventory for the largest holder of residential inventory in the country, Fannie Mae, and he is slowly but surely restoring an M715 and two International Scouts. We are always looking to meet new people who enjoy what we do. Give us a call or shoot us an email!
