Thanks Newport Life Magazine for featuring our Newport renovation project in the premiere edition of Newport Home. 


We were extremely honored to have our extensive renovation and restoration of an 1870 Victorian Newport, RI home chosen for the premiere issue of the Newport Life Magazines Home edition. The article titled "Heart of the Home" depicted the kitchen with its slate countertops, custom chalkboard wine rack and transom windows, which helped to illuminate this once dark and closed off kitchen.  

​Throughout my fifteen years in home construction, I have had the opportunity to take part in the process of design and construction of high quality homes. In 2010, I began to focus on design and enrolled in a graduate program at Boston Architectural College for Building Design. During this time, I was able to become proficient using a variety of new CAD programs to create quality and professional looking elevations and floor plan drawings as well as 3D renderings. While at BAC, I focused on Sustainable Building Design and also became LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certified.

I believe that my background in home building gives me a unique perspective and a better understanding of the design process, as well as how to achieve better outcomes through efficient design. I have experience designing large and small projects for a variety of contractors and homeowners on Block Island and southern Rhode Island. I specialize in creating permit ready plans that address only the specific needs of each client, which can end up saving homeowners money in design costs, while allowing you to get the home that you have always wanted.

Design Ideas

Every space is different. Every structure has its unique reason for existing.

  • Start with a project mission statement
  • Create a Project Proposal with a clearly defined Scope of Services, and list the specific requiremcents for your new home.
  • Use an integrated process. An integrated process is a method used for the design and operations of sustainable buildings. What it boils down to is getting everyone who will be involved in the project, from the design phase to construction to the actual day-to-day operations, together right from the start to collaborate.​
  • Create project plan based on goals and objectives that includes milestones and contingencies
