With a steep slope on an infill site, Hillcrest Cottage had some challenges from the get-go, but the largest one was timing. We started design just as the world started shutting down, going into a worldwide pandemic. We had no idea the impacts that were to come on the supply chain, scheduling, and pricing – so we are very fortunate we had flexible clients. We were also fortunate to work in tandem with a builder, Herr and Company, that was able to find the right value products at the right time that were available when needed. It was a challenge to build. The end result is a beautiful home that captures the views and provides ample living space on two levels and incredible outdoor living spaces. This was one of our first projects that we designed through using zoom technologies for meetings, and we learned a lot about the technology. Those lessons have helped us grow as a company to better serve our clients.
