We’ve always been interested in providing access to good design energy regardless of budget. We’ve always known that dreaming up cool ideas is fun and easy but delivering them on budget throughout a whole site can be exceedingly challenging.

Josh and Abby had a young family and accordingly, somewhat limited resources. They wanted to make the homes exterior feel like a new house. We knew painting would go a long way towards transformation while costing little. And we know concrete is a cost-effective approach to surfaces. Rather than tearing out old large elements, we often just re-skinned them in a new material.

After the project was done, we hard many times about epic parties they had in their backyard.
