Better Home. Better Life.

Here’s the premise: I’ve spent more than four decades working with people in Greater Hartford and the Farmington Valley to make their good homes better. In that time I’ve come to recognize five recurring themes in that work. Let’s call them “Great Spaces.”

I’ve been in so many homes where some or all of these spaces just aren’t working. We want you to be able to visit each of the five ‘great spaces’ and see examples of what goes into making them work. Look for that link below.

We want to involve you in discovering opportunities to improve each of these great spaces in your own home. Fill out the Great Spaces Survey below and we’ll send you the results.

We also want to help you learn how new levels of comfort, health, durability, and energy efficiency are being baked into the projects we are doing. View our many blog posts to learn more about all that.

We want to help you to discover how to create these great spaces in your home.





 Your home deserves each of these great spaces. 

Start with an easy to recognize and welcoming meet and greet, “honey I’m home” entry that is equal parts beauty and function and flows easily in both directions, inside and out.

Add a suite of open spaces for informal social gathering anchored by a kitchen hub that moves the farm to the family table and invites everyone on and in to cozy up on the couch. Extend indoor living with seasonally active “outdoor rooms” that flow directly and share views with central activity areas.

Retreat to a master suite with a sequence of bedroom, dressing, and bathing spaces that ease you into and back out of your day. Satisfy personal needs with “bliss spaces” that support health in all its dimensions: spaces to muse quietly, to play noisily, to craft creatively, to exercise vigorously.

Offer contemplative space for concentrated work. Establish organized space to maintain order and manage household activities. Accommodate your guests graciously.

Finally add levels of comfort, health, durability, and exceptional energy efficiency.

Take a moment to complete this “Great Spaces” inventory to gain insight about what’s working in YOUR home. We’ll send you the results!
