Urban Main
Story:

Why does a mountain climber climb a mountain? Because he can and that’s the inspiration that drove this self-made man to conceive a dream and make it happen. He owns a successful concrete company and is no stranger to hard work. This driven, self-manager knew his family had the right home but not the right location, so they transplanted their near perfect idea farther down the road to a perfect home site and improved their former design to make it more family-friendly. This home is the main home complement to the Urban Guest suite. It takes a motivated task master to do it right, twice.
