Home Is Where The Heart Is.....In North Carolina.

In 2004, my husband and I designed our dream home.  Designing and building a house on the side of a hill was a major challenge.  Not only did we have to think about horizontal design, but vertical as well.  I purchased a $20.00 piece of Home Design software from Sams Club, of all places, and began drawing up the house plans in 2D.  The program allowed us to walk through the home in 3D and make any necessary changes.  After 2 years of tweaking the plans, we finally brought them to an architect and began building.  The entire building process took 14 months with many decisions and many headaches.  It was a labor of love...and now it's Home Sweet Home.
