In the works!

Hi everyone!  We just wanted to show you some of the fun things we have been working on this year.


This project is underway in Decatur!


It is incredibly exciting to see this one going up in Morningside.


We are so fortunate to have worked with some wonderful clients, reviving this Robert Green house in Sandy Springs.


Piedmont Heights… Perhaps the shiniest range hood ever!


Serious pool envy, recently completed in Maryville, Tennessee


Recently completed in Peachtree Park, it has the best porch for drinking Champagne Cocktails!


Another recently completed house in Piedmont Heights, this one was so much fun.


Many more projects to come, like this one in Lake Keowee, South Carolina



Thank you for visiting!

Coming in 2017!

2017 is off to a roaring start, and we would like to give you a peek at some projects just finishing up as well as some coming out of the ground soon.


This is a new house in Brookhaven.   The first floor steel windows are five feet wide and ten feet tall!


This one is just about done in Garden Hills.


This one is just a couple of doors down from another project of ours.

We are working on some really fun projects that will be coming out of the ground this year.  I grew up going on construction site visits with my Dad.  To me, the only thing more exciting than seeing these designs getting built is seeing how they turn into homes when people move into them.

This one is a small farm house in Calhoun, Georgia. It will be a peaceful retreat for some great clients.


This Voysey inspired house is a very special collaboration with our dear friend Kristan Moore.  It has been years in the making, but it will be well worth the wait!


We are close to wrapping up permit drawings for this house in Brookhaven.  I am so very fortunate to be working with the most wonderful family on this very special house.

Initial concept sketch and rendering for a one room deep English inspired house with views to a lake in the front and a pool in the back.  I am so very fortunate to be working with some incredible clients on this one!



I was so honored to be asked by a former client to design this house for her new development company.  She and her partners the vision of deigning something that would stand out from the sea of bland spec houses popping up everywhere.  This house will have green roofs and a family room with accordion glass doors that will seamlessly connect the indoor and outdoor spaces.

We will share progress pictures on Instagram as these and many other projects develop.

Thanks for visiting!

The Kitchen Table

It was a little over nine years ago that my wife and I sat down at our kitchen table to talk about starting this little company of ours. She never hesitated and told me that we would find a way to make it work.

After marrying her, starting CDS is the best decision I have ever made. These nine years have brought me immeasurable joy and satisfaction. I go to work every day to my dream job.

Today that kitchen table is used as our conference table. It is a daily reminder of how incredibly fortunate I am, in so very many ways.
