You’ve heard the expression “They don’t make them like that anymore!” to lament the declining and disposable quality of so much of what we buy today. Mike Simmons is a true artisan who takes the time to build a house like no other. The longer we live in the house that Mike built for us, the more we appreciate the thoughtful craftsmanship he put into every detail, and the superior quality of the work he did. Hurricane Irene and Hurricane Sandy left our home an island surrounded by water, yet not one drop of water could be found in my house. Although our house is large, our geothermal energy system is so efficient, when we conducted an energy audit, the experts could find nothing to improve. And, most importantly, the beautiful spaces Mike designed with his singular aesthetic continue to make us smile every day.
