"Working with Jacob and his team was a pure pleasure in making the vision for our bathroom a reality. He partnered with us every step of the way, helping us to navigate the various options we had to fit our taste and budget."  E. Leinhard


"We absolutely love the home, and we loved the collaboration with Sarah and Jacob, who listened carefully to our needs and desires and brought them to fruition. It's part of why we're friends all these years later! "  E. Lippmann


"Jacob and Sarah did a two-level addition on our home. In addition to adding/opening up our kitchen and living area on the main floor, they redesigned the existing space and added a bedroom on our upper floor. They also added a new bathroom. Four years later, we are still extremely pleased with the work. The whole house felt new and more livable."  E. Moiduddin

A home inspired by tree house concepts with the goal of elevating the main living level up in the tree canopy. We worked closely with Josh & Erin from Wild Wonderful Off-Grid to develop plans for their new Air BNB business. We had great synergy with them and they were key to driving this design bringing great ideas and vision to the table.
