One of the fun parts about our job is the invitations that we get to different events, especially open houses that builders and/or architects host at recently completed projects. It gives us the opportunity to see the work of a great collaboration, between builders, architects, homeowners, and designers, take place.
The Johnson Residence
In April, we visited the Johnson residence in Crownsville, Maryland, that Riley Custom Homes just completed along with architect, Teresa Todd, AIA. The property was once the Herald Harbor Club, which once served as a place for people to swim and dock their boats. Three college buddies purchased the property and subdivided it to build additional houses in addition to renovating the existing clubhouse into a residence. Now the three families share a huge beach, along with all the amenities.
The Homeowner’s Experience
We chatted with the homeowner, who said they had an amazing experience working with their design team because they took a vested interested in every detail. The team met with the homeowners every two weeks to ensure progress and go over questions or budget concerns.
Why We Were Impressed
Not only were we impressed with the collaboration of efforts that went into the building and design of the house. We were impressed by the flow and the execution of the beautiful trim work and built-ins.
