My new book is called Big Enough. It’s about building an intentionally small business that supports the life you want to lead.
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.
Ready for Rain is a newsletter that's personal
On most Tuesdays, I share a story from my life on Orcas Island and a recommendation for something I love. I'm interested in how to design work and home for lifestyle, livability, and fluffy dogs. Learn more.

Build Livable Guides
Are you planning or building a home?
Build Livable is a web-based 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 guide accomplishes this with videos, images, downloadable documents, diagrams, and more.
