Home Motion

A home for eternity. A blended family purges the past to consolidate their love and resources to create a forever home for work and play. They seek a master plan to combine work and personal buildings on a single property where everything coexists but also provides enough individual privacy to separate the fun-living from the fun-working. Welcome to Home Motion.
