We are pleased to announce the addition of Leah Simmerman to our staff. Leah will join senior designers, Chris Hudson and Joe Bassett to round out our in-house design team.
A Blacksburg native and one of our former interns, Leah is returning to the New River Valley after completing her Masters in Sustainable Building Design and Construction from Appalachian State University. Prior to her work at Appalachian State, she completed her Bachelors of Fine Art, Craft and Material Studies at Virginia Commonwealth University.
Leah possesses a thoughtful and creative mind coupled with a strong work ethic and attention to detail. We know her focus on creative,sustainable and universal design will serve our clients well and we all look forward to working with her again
On the last glorious autumn....the view was amazing: glimmering river backlit by the blazing hills and the house set like a natural gem in all that loveliness....
....last night: playing music and hanging pictures, preparing dinner, drinking champagne; sitting in the cozy hot tub looking at the stars, watching the trains fling their headlights over the cliffs was like a sensual fantasy, almost unreal it was so shimmeringly PERFECT....
This morning the sunrise turned the cliffs opal pink (like the bathroom walls) and then the full-risen sun blasted the red wall with light; we ate breakfast not talking at all because it was too beautiful and we were too happy.
