HAND CRAFTED ARCHITECTURE
At CRAFT HOMES we don't just start with an idea or a story, we start with our hands - graphite on paper - because design is all about problem solving. We scratch and smudge at those ideas carefully crafting lines on paper into something beautiful. As the process moves from graphite to computer, we don't forget the importance of Hands. Its a reminder that your home is built by the hands of skilled craftsman. We strive to collaborate with only the best local craftsman to achieve a high level of design aesthetic without compromising strength and longevity.
