JMA traditional-family-room


Home built by JMA (Jim Murphy and Associates); designed by Ed Sohl, Fifth Resource Group. Photo credit: Tim Maloney, Technical Imagery Studios.

This project spanned a three year time frame as we constructed a two story craftsman style home with a basement, pool, and pool house. We also built two horse barns, an outdoor riding arena and an indoor riding arena. There was extensive landscaping, including a large pond filled with trout, lots of stone walls and patios and many fenced pastures that altogether created a wonderful estate feel on eleven acres.

Grand. Makes me reevaluate thinking about painting the tray dark, as the reflected light is so much nicer.

Don't have enough books to fill all the shelves in your library or family room? Plates will gladly fill the gap until your book collection expands.
