Women in Architecture - WOW!
It's Women's History Month! Thank you to the many female pioneers that changed the face of the industry - and paved the way for our woman-owned firm.
See this Verdana.com article for six female revolutionaries of 20th century architecture. From the (likely) first female licensed architect in the US, who spent much of her early career working for Frank Lloyd Wright (before he was famous) to “the Rosa Parks of architecture” you'll find inspiration in what they did then... and be even more inspired in what we can do now!

It's fun to work with people who get really excited about the project. The highlight of the day for these seniors is watching the construction of their new addition!
Some really fun lights at our nearly finished project - Hayden Grove Senior Living! thanks to Owens Design Group for picking out the lights!
