Before starting DuVive I spent years searching for a house for my family but was repeatedly disappointed because older houses had a host of problems and new construction had McMansion aesthetics and build quality.

I saw a need for well built houses in prime locations that were comfortable, modern, and efficient while incorporating beautiful details in a thoughtful manner.

Before architects became a separate profession Master Builders were artists managing construction. The father of Renaissance architecture, the artist Brunelleschi, was a Master Builder who is best known for his design of the great Dome of Florence.

I aspire to continue the tradition by creating individually designed unique homes.
