Meet the Design Team
Our skilled and dedicated staff is the heart and soul of our company and this is
especially true of our Architectural Design Department, where our hallmark designs
of historic architecture for modern-day dwellings are born.
While our team has come here from a wide variety of backgrounds, they are all well-versed
in classical forms and orders and how to apply them to the many vernacular styles
that define historic American architecture. They are also well versed in the actual
construction methods, framing and detailing required to ensure these home are then
correctly built in our shops and on your site.
Our team holds degrees in Architecture, Interior Design, Architectural History,
Historic Preservation, Mechanical Engineering, Drafting and Building Sciences. Their
professional experience includes working in many well-known, traditionally-based
architectural offices throughout the country, managing design/build projects for
residential and commercial clients, detailing fine custom cabinetry and interiors,
supervision of on-site building crews and furniture-making techniques.
Our designers and draftsmen take a very collaborative approach to their daily work
and they work closely with company founder Mike Connor to review and critique all
projects in the works. Our design and sales team meet monthly through an informal
Charrette format to present and discuss new designs and ideas.
All of our designers and draftsman have extensive hands-on and supervisory experience
in all areas of the field of construction which enables them to see our customers
through all aspects of the sometimes daunting but always exciting process of building
a new home.
