These days we have been getting a lot of inquiries about building homes in the country. 35 years ago a friend of mine and I renovated a large “One Room Schoolhouse” in the country into a 2 bedroom weekend home. It would be an understatement to say that that renovation changed my life. The schoolhouse was featured in a magazine and then a book and shortly afterward my practice as a ‘country architect’ began. Later on, I met and married the daughter of the realtor who sold me the schoolhouse. I have to say I have lived happily ever after.
Now I cannot make any guarantees that building or renovating a home in the country will make you happy, but I do guarantee that it will change your life and if you are like me and many of my clients, you might end up moving to the country for good.

I always enjoy viewing your website and seeing the excellent results of your work.
Every time that I drive by that schoolhouse I think of you.
