live in an 80-year old house. Christie designed an
addition to blend in with the house. Yesterday a friend who had
not seen our house before stood in the center of the addition and
asked, "Where does the new part of the house begin?" We're
tickled pink whenever folks can't tell the new part of the house from
good traffic flow, eco-green planning, and superb blending with the
rest of the house. Christie listened well, and worked hard to
give us what we wanted, and succeeded. We are very pleased!"
