"What do we know about design? Besides, we were designing for two families, so needed a custom design. James was recommended by someone, but I don't remember who it was.
"Our working relationship was cordial and collaborative--and fun.
"One thing he did was to come and look at both my house and my parents house, counting closets, asking what we did, what we wanted. James did his research so he was designing based on our desires.
"After 4 years, it's fabulous! I wake up every day just delighted that I live there. I like the overall feel. It's a combination of styles: part prairie, part japanese, even a touch of southwest. James brought a creative touch. One of my favorites is the round windows. I also like the 36-inch [roof] overhang. It's useful in a million ways when it rains. It also looks nice."
