John Murphy

Work Philosophy

While working my way through college to earn my liberal arts degree I was intrigued by history, art and other perspectives that shaped and kindled my appreciation for design and purpose.While becoming a master carpenter in the 80’s and 90’s, I became ever more focused on creating projects with the right mix of aesthetics, function and performance and I began to appreciate the elegance and wisdom of the design/build approach.

Today I define a successful project as one that improves the daily lives of our clients, increases the value of the home, while being environmentally conscientious and respectful of the owner’s budget. But my real satisfaction is earned when we hear our clients say; “I absolutely love my home now!”
