Construction is the language of architecture. Drawings visualize and specify a concept. But design is only half of the architecture. The only way to get something realized is to use your hands and build it.

By working as a builder for many years, I was able to focus on and learn the craft of a master builder. That craft ranges from the very practical “how to” of building to understanding and exploiting the very essence of a material. Now I apply that knowledge of building to bring life to the architecture that we create. To build it is to make the architecture complete.
