What does it take to design and build something that will remain in use for 100 years….
True to form and function.
Serving it’s purpose well.
Make it good.
Good for you – the client and the generations who will use and enjoy it.
Good for us – the builders and crafters.
Good for the planet – the forests and land.
Good across time – the multi-generations to come.
Well constructed, well made, well finished.
We treasure the things we find beautiful.

Russ & Becky often share…
“While our faith (being in the Christian tradition) roots who we are and all we do, we truly value the lenses of all folks, faiths, and traditions — and as we often say, all are welcome at the table!”
“We also value family and a multi-generational household, as well as the wisdom, messiness, and joys that come along with that. We have been known to have 3 generations living together in our household, and usually sharing a meal every day all together. Our tables have had to function for 8 year olds and 80 year olds. Fun times! This has truly given us a multi-generational perspective for design!”
“We are also grateful to have traveled (and still do) throughout this beautiful world, and find inspiration in the beauty, excellence, communal spirit, traditions, and timeless designs we come across. We are particularly inspired by the designs and traditions in Switzerland, Germany, Sweden, Australia, and in the United States particularly the California coastline, the Uinta Mountains in Utah, and the forest trails of Serenbe, Georgia.”
WE LOOK FORWARD TO HEARING YOUR STORY, AND YOUR DESIGN VISION…
