I remember the day I turned 18 (legal drinking age back in the day) quite well. The pint of Southern Comfort I was provided as a birthday gift led to a turn of events that my old friends will never let me forget. The day started out normal enough.......Oops - this is a blog about home design. Let me start over.
A few weeks ago I received a call from a wonderful couple in Alabama. Two years ago a tornado had ripped through their property and destroyed their lake home. Since then they have been working on a new home design. They had become pretty happy with the floor plans, but just could not get comfortable with the building exterior. They came to the conclusion they needed some design assistance, and asked if I could help. I said, "Absolutely!"
