The floor plan in this custom home is very open and simple, designed to live comfortably and casually every day of the year.

The home was designed to allow for them to start a family, entertain and enjoy their hobbies. With a large mudroom with a doggie wash and extra washer/dryer, she can take care of the immediate needs of their loved pets and keep the mess in one room. It can also serve as the family entry once their family grows.

Our clients say: “My fiance and I met with Francisca & Tony after we got engaged to discuss rebuilding on our property. The 800 sq ft brick house I owned wasn’t going to be big enough for us & our 3 dogs! The design phase was a lot of fun and very detailed, but never overwhelming. We went away to get married the same week our house was demo’d and 8 short months later were back on our property in our dream home!! What I love most about the house is the kitchen, the stairwell, the windows, the mudroom, the dog wash station in the mudroom… I love it all Francisca & Tony think of all the little things that add so much detail and really make a home feel finished. If I ever build another home I know who to call!”
