My new book is called Big Enough. It’s about building an intentionally small business that supports the life you want to lead.
After 20 years in Seattle, I recently moved to an island off the NW coast of Washington State and often share my experiences of building a house and transitioning to an island lifestyle.
I’m putting my passion and experience in home construction into education for homeowners called Build Livable.
My newsletter, Ready for Rain, is the best way to follow along.

Online Courses for Homeowners
Are you planning to build a home?
Build Livable is a resource for homeowners that explains every phase of home construction, from finding a property to moving in.
The guide is built on a decade of experience working with architects and general contractors on three home construction projects. The most recent is a custom home completed in 2021.
My goal is to help homeowners save time and money by understanding the process, being prepared, and working productively with construction pros. The courses accomplishe this with videos, images, downloadable documents, diagrams, and more.
