Primer on Greene & Greene Elements of Style
We started with an early 60s split level house purchased from original owner, the house was not maintained very well and had numerous electrical and plumbing issues. After living in the house for five years we knew all the good and the bad and decided new construction was more efficient than a remodel.
We recycled every element of the old house.

Everyone who has seen the house agrees it is being built like a fine piece of furniture. Craftsmen involved in our home and also the restoration work on original Greene & Greene homes agree that it is being built with the same attention to detail.
