Recent Projects!

In our last newsletter, we shared some of our work on a 1902 one room schoolhouse. 

We have been helping our clients and their contractor with an adaptive reuse project, converting the building into livable space.

 Inside our travels: Toronto  
We recently took vacation to enjoy our shared birthday week, spending a few days in Toronto before heading into the forest. The primary purpose of our trip to Canada was to see the Georgia O'Keefe exhibit but we decided to spend a little time taking in other exhibits and exploring the architecture of the city.
