We bought a 1920s Tudor and turned it into the best house on the block. Planning to renovate on their own someday, the previous owners of over 50 years left us with boxes of hand-drawn sketches of their plans. It’s been our honor to restore their home and pass it and these special drawings to the next family!

Tracy La Londe might be one of our favorite people on the planet. She found us our dream first renovation project in the absolute best location. People constantly ask us, "How did you get that house?!" We owe ALL the credit to Tracy.
Joan made Sophia's design dreams come true without batting an eye—even at her high-maintenance requests, LOL! After meetings with Joan, Sophia often called to tell Sarah, "I just really, really like her." It's true—we love Joan! Best. Architect. Ever.
Boy, do we love CHH! The entire team has made this project so easy and so much fun. Finding organized contractors is challenging, but Coach House Homes knows what they're doing. Don’t tell anyone, but we think they’re even more organized than us!
