Goodbye to The Timothy House

November 22nd, 2015

At the end of this summer I said goodbye to the rental home I spent the last three years in and fondly referred to as, The Timothy House.  I moved in to this house anticipating a shorter residence, but this home and neighborhood were really good to me and I didn’t mind extending the stay.

I’d like to say, thank you to Unique Deliveries who always does a great job of moving me!

It’s so much fun to see this custom home under construction!  We started the plans almost two years ago, so the anticipation has definitely had time to grow.  It is going to be a beautiful home!

The kitchen  was light and simple with only one countertop material and cabinet faced appliances, yet there is enough black to still ground everything.  Notice all the different metal finishes used in the kitchen.


This wonderful space stretches from the entry to the kids bedrooms.


The placement of the wet bar around the corner from the kitchen is great for entertaining.

The more informal family room was very livable.  Notice how pretty the parquet floors were.


The black and white color scheme is also used in the powder bath with striking results.

The view out this back door just draws you to the courtyard.

This small TV room sits between the guest sweet and the two children’s bedrooms.

I really like the versatility of house plans with two master suites.


Wonderful paneling going down the stairs.


As much I didn’t want to exit the house, this was a nice mudroom to exit from.

Timeless Architecture

August 18th, 2015

Trend towards smaller home sizes continues.

As the trend towards smaller home sizes continues some of the home plans that I designed towards the beginning of my career are relevant again.  I have always tried to create timeless design and I think that quality in my home plans can be seen in this early collection named New Beginnings.  These plans are still for sale as stock plans.  Look for more of the New Beginnings collection later this week.  Please call if you are interested 801-292-1512.

A Kitchen with Heart!

August 11th, 2015

Kitchens truely are the heart of  the home.

I was so happy to help my friends remodel their kitchen and they are so happy to have it complete.  They were very patient in deciding what they wanted and what would best suit their family.  The result is stunning.

DuMc Landscaping Details

August 6th, 2015

Details, details, details…

This is such an amazing landscape that I wanted to point out some of the interesting and uncommon details.  Notice the use of the spheres in the stairway design and in the finial balls under the pot shelves.  Spheres are not commonly used in exterior architecture, so they awaken and attract the eye yet the geometry is pleasing. The square verses circular pots have been chosen and placed carefully, which is exemplified well with the square pots both in front of the porte cochere and in the front entry cut-out.  The small details such as the mow strip in the driveway and the pebble borders around the patios give the feel that everything has been meticulously considered and executed.
