Final Notes

We’re drafting our blueprint for the next 10 years. The time is now and the time is right for us to grow and build our team. We build great houses and we build them better and faster than anyone else. But that’s just the foundation. Now, we’re looking to lead the way forward.

There are unique opportunities available for a company our size. We’re big enough to have figured out things while small enough to offer lots of headroom to grow with our family. We’re striking a balance between standards and spontaneity, process and playfulness, exacting enough to exceed the code but agile enough to afford innovation. It is a tall order but it is worth striving for.
