This is my first blog entry and if you are reading this then you are at the beginning of what I hope would be a long run in blogs. Either that or you have nothing else to do on a Saturday night. What I would like this blog to do is to educate people, whether it be a homeowner or designer or builder or student as to some design situations or professional development or just some insight into the mind of a designer. Through my 25+ years as a residential designer and working for builders both as their in-house designer or as a separate business, I hope that we can look at various aspects of houses, construction and overall residential design. Through the use of pictures, video and whatever medium might be invented we can discuss styles, good and bad and concepts and theories as to why things are done a certain way.
