Our journey through life produces a story that can manifest itself in the way we build our surroundings.

Our stories are spoken through the details, materials, and volumes of the buildings in which we live, learn, and play. These elements, when arranged in a meaningful way with their context, are what help buildings enrich the lives of their inhabitants.

First Lamp is in search of your story.

Our attraction to this way of working has both practical and philosophical roots.

Residential architecture is unique from the remainder of the building industry in that it allows those who conceive the plan to build as well, allowing projects to mature through construction with the same creative focus that began their conception.

Not only does our working knowledge of construction increase the efficiency with which our projects are built, but it also increases the depth of their meaning. When the hands that hold the pencil also drive the nails, everything changes. The physical acts of building (touching, climbing, holding) open otherwise untouched avenues of creative thought and thicken the bond between body and building. Ideas become more practically and philosophically relevant to the project.

Commented: Beautiful house. Love the wainscoting! No problem, happy to help. Yes, pre-primed MDF panels under pre-primed wood or MDF trim. The paint was sprayed to get the coat as even as possible. Brush strokes in the paint are okay if you're trying...

Commented: Light fixture Hi! I'm really sorry but I don't have an answer for this. It was purchased and provided by the owner several years back and it has literally fallen out of my memory. Good luck with your project!
