Media + Garage

Media + Garage

Sometimes you have not one, but three perfect homes in three different locations, but one of them needs something extra. The something extra this home needed is a media room, storage & another garage for the show car. This family planted a vision and I nurtured it into a two-story addition + a 1 car garage. Move over second and third home there’s a new favorite in the residential portfolio.
