Larry can calmly redirect a wild client idea into something that his knowledge and experience knows will actually work. He took our list of wants and transformed them into a contemporary design better than we could have ever dreamed of. Everyone who has seen it is also in awe of the light, the balance, and the creative elements. We HIGHLY recommend Hodge Design & Remodeling.
