The Year In Review!
Wow! 2019 is here and 2018 in in the rear view mirror. Last year was a very busy year for those in the new home building or home renovation business and if you are one of the thousands of home owners who were planning projects that is not news to you. The late winter combined with a busier than usual construction season, rising home prices, still historically low interest rates, and too few people to do the work was a challenge for many trying to make their dreams for home come true. The lessons from 2018 are to make your plans early, determine a realistic budget for your project, and lock in your architect and contractor early to help you accomplish your design and budget goals along with your project schedule. As many found out last year failing to make your plans early will keep you from accomplishing your goals and enjoying the changes to your home in 2019.
We had a great 2018. Our Classic Contemporary Studio was published in Spaces Magazine and the interior of our Thumper Pond Residence graced the cover of the Midwest Home & Garden, Guide to Good Design. Although our primary focus is making our clients dreams for home come true it is always great to have our clients projects recognized for their unique and high quality design. We were also at the Home & Remodeling Show, Home & Patio Show, Home Expo, and Home & Garden Show. In 2019 we are very excited to be replacing the Home & Patio and Home Expo with the Lake Home & Cabin Show and getting back to our lake home and cabin design roots.
So let’s say a grateful goodbye to 2018 with all it has brought and welcome 2019 and all that will be.
Happy New Year!
