Business Description
We began Dungan Nequette in a small sunroom with a couple of projects and a burning desire to get back to the craft of creating beauty- with thoughtfulness and care and real passion. We felt a kinship to the Arts and Crafts period, at the turn of the last century- more than mere style; it was a movement, a way of life. Like them we believed passionately in what we were doing. Our goal was to help people have better lives, by creating inspired places for them to truly live.

As things progressed, we did some nice architecture but there was something missing. We wanted our work to be consistent and for the quality and thoughtfulness of the architecture to be reflected in the interior spaces as well; especially the décor within the furnishings, draperies, rugs and artwork. It was an important and natural progression, so we created Tracery to create beautiful interiors. Following that progression, it was only a matter of time until we were design entire towns. Working in this market, we realized that there was a need to be able to communicate more effectively- "the vision". We began to create printed pieces, advertisements, signage and websites so once again we moved into a new area of design, at that point we created The G Brand to succinctly and elegantly present that vision.

Somewhere along the way, many talented, passionate and fun-loving people came along. Because of the synergy or their amazing work, the whole world is a better place. We work in the mountains and the beach and all points across the south, even in Canada or the Bahamas or Utah. We have now a "house of design", working together to create beautiful environments, helping people live better lives. It’s still about people- and a passion for great design.

Kudos, Becky, for capturing a synopsis of Houzz for readers. Sometimes we just don't have time to read everything and it's nice to have someone point us to the highlights.

I hated Bee Movie...completely misleading in how pollination works and the reason for it. Pollination is important for plant reproduction, but plants don't DIE simply because they're not pollinated (They just don't have sex - which requires pollen from their OWN species). I realize the whole movie was tongue-in-cheek and meant to be taken as a gentle environmental message, but I found the assumption of ignorance insulting and the movie to be the worst I had seen in a long time. I do like bees and appreciate the role they play, and I have toyed with the idea of beekeeping once we have the space; but these could have been done better justice even with an animated film.

As for resonating, I really enjoyed Benjamin Vogt's article the other week on Selfless Gardening, which goes right along with conservation of bees and other insects. Go natives!

My first impression was that your garage was too square, so I love the picture Pamela Bateman posted with the curved top garage doors & trim. Can you add some of the roof support/beam looking things (sorry don't know what they're called) under the eaves like in Madson Design's cabin drawing above? Also if you can make the roof line of the portico & dormer a little more droopy/curvy like the curved roof on the corner?

I also love the hanging roses & a nice picket fence would be beautiful! Make sure the walk to the front door has some curve to it & its made from different sized stones & lined with flowers. And by all means add a garden gate, arch, or arbor with hanging vines.

Came across this today while browsing at HGTV Gardens site. For those whose pocketbook is smaller than their home/garden dreams (like me!), maybe a little hobbit hole (add trees, vines, ferns), below. The blurb says suitable for sleepovers, tho' maybe just little kids:
"Wooden Wonders’ hobbit holes turn backyards into whimsical wonderlands. The brand-new playhouse version Woodshire, produced in Unity, Maine, is an enclosed space ideal for summer sleepovers and imagination-filled play dates, from $2,390 at www.wooden-wonders.com
