While she enjoys many aspects of the construction process, her favorite part is watching her husband, John, completely transform a living space with his vision and design skills. After the birth of their two sons, her role has evolved, allowing her to dedicate her passion and extraordinary skills to marketing, special projects, and finance.
When she’s not hard at work, Tammy can be found hiking, golfing, paddle boarding and traveling abroad with her family. She loves including her two young sons in as many of these amazing experiences as possible.
Born and raised in the Tacoma-Gig Harbor area of Washington state, Jon moved to Sebastopol in 1984, looking for better weather and a change of scenery. He graduated from University of Washington and spent 40-plus years in the construction industry.

In his leisure time Jon likes to play golf with his son and son-in-law, work out at the gym and spend time at home with his family.
``I knew that I would be a designer from a very young age. I was voted most creative/artistic in multiple class polls growing up. In my mind, architectural design was always the perfect merging of creativity with the potential for psychological, social and ecological impact. Designing to impact people holistically is the merging of all that I am passionate about.``
