What Houzz contributors are saying:

BEFORE: The Harmons had gotten married in Healdsburg, California, and returned often for visits. A vacation home and eventual relocation here had been a dream that involved a fixer-upper project. Brad is a remodeler, millworker, tileworker and more, and Susan’s hobby is interior decorating. “They are both super design-oriented,” Alper says. When they found this 1960s cottage, they could see the possibilities; they knew they could design it themselves but hired an architect to ensure that it would reach its full potential. “We brought Amy Alper in as soon as our offer was accepted,” Brad says. “We warned her in advance that due to our backgrounds, we wanted to collaborate with her, but that we had plenty of our own ideas.” “They picked and sourced a lot of the finishes themselves, and Brad acted as general contractor and did a lot of the work himself,” Alper says. She came up with ideas and solutions to help them maximize their space while working with the existing structure, and figured out how to better connect the house to the outdoors.
