I built this house with my brother in Ohio. The house is in the Prairie Style. This was a really neat project to work on. Many of my best projects reside in this house.
This house provided me with a unique opportunity because it was designed as a shell with only the basic trim package figured. The clients wanted to walk into the house to see how the space “felt”. They were taking suggestions from everyone, how often do you run into an opportunity like that?
My brother was the lead supervisor and I was the assistant. We had many subcontractors involved, but we ran it as lead carpenters so we had a lot of hands-on work. We were very involved every step of the way.
This house turned out to be a real showpiece for all parties involved.
