Past Projects

All of our clients come to us with their own unique scenario. Most own a piece of land on which they would like us to place a home, an office or other structure. Most are well informed in the benefits of various forms of off-site construction. Our challenge is to overcome the limitations of their site and satisfy all of their design criteria. Whether you are a landowner, a first time self builder or an established developer you should find some parallels in this selection of Boutique Modern builds.
