“The Little House,” by David.

February 18th, 2012 Sears Homes 1 comment

I’m mighty happy to be in my new home, but one of the things I miss from the old place is my little 96-square-foot house.

David Strickland designed it and built it in September 2008, and it is a real beauty. It has more than 250 linear feet of crown molding, a floored attic (with a vertical staircase), and five wonderful windows. And it has 96 square feet of living area. And did I mention that it has a slate roof?

If you want a little house of your own, or if you need any type of contracting work, I highly recommend David. He is easily the finest contractor that I’ve ever worked with. In addition to his 30 years of experience, he’s incredibly talented. He’s more than just an experienced carpenter, he’s a true artisan, in every sense of the word.

If you’d like to see samples of his work, scroll on down. He’s done so much work for us, and I’ve never met another contractor who comes close to this level of quality.

We always called it, The Little Mansion. This is a real beauty and its a lovely testament to Davids abilities.

This custom-built jewel has more than 250 feet of crown molding and a slate roof. And it was designed and built by David Strickland.

David also restored the bathroom for us. The work he did was first rate, and the end result was magazine-quality gorgeous!

And David built the picket fence, too.

Pink Houses: They’re Not Just For Sissies Anymore

February 25th, 2011 Sears Homes 1 comment

When folks asked what color I was painting my house, I smiled and told them, “The most beautiful pink in the world.”

More than a few raised their eyebrows.

In fact, my formerly beige house looks absolutely delightful dressed up in pink. Perhaps the most interesting comment came from my husband who said, “I’m secure enough in my masculinity to live in a pink house.”

Indeed he is.

Wow

Picket fences go really well with pink houses.

And of course, everyone should have a pergola in the back yard.
