"I think that many of your readers dream of building their own home, but for various reasons think that it would be out of reach (fear of architects, contractors, going over the budget, and the like). I would love the opportunity to show that with a modest budget a sense of adventure, and a responsive, creative design-build team, it can be a fun and fulfilling reality!"

-- Soto McNett client letter to editor
