Collaboration and Like-minded Individuals

After 47 years in business you establish a work ethic that attracts other like-minded individuals. This house begins a new design style for our firm, one that stared with a client who was interested in something unique and different for this rebuild. Along the journey, we’ve had the pleasure of recommending Virginia Burt of Virginia Burt Designs and Andy Jonkman from Andy Jonkman Construction as part of the design team.

Not only do we share the same commitment to collaboration, innovation and design but we have a mutual respect and admiration for each others talent.

We recently completed a house tour, inviting our teams to the site so that we may learn from each other and share stories about the experience.

I discussed my inspiration, Andy the importance of his trades and Virginia the unique site that contributed to this amazing new design. We all thanked everyone who contributed to the project because we understand that collaboration is not always as easy as it looks!

How would I describe this new design style? A combination of arts and crafts and modern that has blended together to create a house that will become a home for a wonderful family.

It is when the house becomes move-in ready that we may truly appreciate the scribbles on the paper that leads to the bricks and motor with a house that blends with the landscape in a neighbourhood that have given us the thumbs up throughout the entire process.

I’d like to thank everyone who worked on the project for creating the energy that leaves us all with a smile and I look forward to working with this team again in the future!
