We’re green for this blue house! Happy to share this full remodel with an upper floor and rear addition that recently won Arlington’s Green Home Gold Level Choice Certificate for its sustainable design and energy efficiency.

Repeat clients are always the best. During the first project we added a second story addition and bumped out the back. We returned 3 years later to add the dining room, enclosed deck and detached artist’s studio. We’d love a work space like that in our own backyard!
