- I look for those who can’t wait to exploit my talents to help create a Joyful Home using these fine environmental design methods.
Here are examples of creative ideas for new & existing homes, plus some stylistic concepts.
- A central atrium or cupola, offers height, light, plants & oxygen. A living heart for a home. Adding one to an existing home is quiet easy.
- South facing greenhouses, "passive-solar heated" will grow your veg's & flowers all year. It doubles as a gym, work area, studio & play room.
- A Master suite addition provides, a growing family space & more secure independent living through all the ages of ones lifetime as well.
- An ADU, or in-law unit, can be attached, or more frugally from a portion of your home. With a finer detached unit, downsize & travel the world.
- Styles of homes: I designed in International Style for my mother & father. (See 2 photos below.) They filled it with art-work & a wax chandelier.
- If you favor French Country romantic design, create new interiors or a whole European charmed home, with materials for a good life with taste.
- A Tudor style with olde, English character, can also take advantage of a well insulated, fire resistant, exterior, stucco finish & design details.
- A contemporary home, spacious & uncluttered, for creative thinking. A composition of various heights & distinctive spaces & flow, will inspire you.
- Sante-Fe’s style, bold, bright & uncluttered. Express by composing indoor-outdoor spaces, in a play of color walls on your site to charm your life.
