flower of life

A Man’s House is his Castle. Where you live should represent YOU! So, when sitting down with folks ready to build a home, I ask them about themselves. “What speaks to you? What makes you happy to look at? My job is to make a house custom built for you.”

I’m currently building a home for a great client. She knows exactly what she wants — and part of that order was to represent the Tree of Life, or Seed of Life throughout her home.

I’ll admit, I don’t know that much about ancient symbology — but that’s not a problem thanks to today’s technology. With a few clicks and a guiding hand from the owner, we settled on some custom designs for her home.

Above, you’ll see various stages of the Tree of Life symbology carved into beams. We wanted the artwork to be fluid and to look as if it had always been a part of her custom home.

I absolutely love working with people on these custom touches. There is nothing better than bringing artwork into the body of the house — and letting that artwork tell you a little bit about the great people that live there. Your home is your castle, and a palette, and a symbol in itself of who you are. So don’t just rely on some paintings from TJ Maxx to decorate your walls; think about it.

If you’re looking to build in the Pacific Northwest — let’s talk. I currently have projects in Salem, Oregon and Bend, Oregon and enjoy working one-on-one with my clients. 541-480-5050
