How did you get started in the building industry?
I got started in the industry working for a prominent builder in the western suburbs in my early 20s. I enjoyed the building trade and was inspired to pursue it as my career. I still enjoy it today!
How would you describe your team’s approach to a new project?
At Jyland, we use a hands-on full-team approach from start to finish. The early selection of architect, designer, and landscape architect benefits the homeowner’s building experience. Making all selections upfront allows for better execution of the project in a timely manner.
What sets your company apart?
My low volume, high quality, and creative design along with my detailed project management offer my homeowners a personal touch.
What inspires and influences your work?
Quality architecture, big glass, tailored space planning, and high-level finishes inspire me.
How do you bring a client’s vision to life?
With over 40 years of experience, we listen and strive to understand the owner’s vision. With the use of technology, we can walk through the home and bring their vision to life.
What are the most important elements of a successful build team?
Trust, understanding, cooperation, communication, and execution of a thoughtfully planned schedule.
What do you enjoy most about building custom homes?
I enjoy creative design, the build process, working with highly qualified artisans, and the excitement the homeowners have at the completion of each project.
What are some of your favorite trends and styles in new construction?
I have respect for all architectural styles. I am enthused with the current trend of warm contemporary with strong forms, tailored spaces, and private settings.
