2000

Moving into the 2000’s, the baby boomers started nearing retirement age. The skills that proved to be so successful for mainstream building ended up serving Steve well, as he was able to design homes for people who were likely building their last home. Steve’s success with this type of customer over the years led to his invitation to participate in designing and building homes in the active adult mountain communities of Big Canoe and Birch River in N.
