Since then, he has learned every aspect of being a tradesman, a manager, and a business owner; to this day he never stops learning. Dave is involved in many aspects of the local community including the Rotary Club of Greater Corvallis.
Shelley came onto the team as our office manager, creating systems and managing our day-to-day functions, as well as frequent problem-solving or improving processes to create the well-oiled machine it is today. Shelley has always had a natural ability to create beautiful spaces, both in her own home and others, and moved into our design team manager role seamlessly.
She now oversees our design team, managing every client and every design, ensuring that we hit deadlines and that no detail goes unseen. Additionally, she gets to create her own designs and manage her own projects, using the natural talent she’s had all along to take clients’ homes to the next level.

She is currently in her senior year at Oregon State University, pursuing two bachelor’s degrees in Interior Design and Design & Innovation Management, with a minor in Family Business Management, and will graduate in June of 2023. She moved into a full-time designer role in 2021 and has been creating beautiful, innovative spaces already.
