The possibilities are endless when it comes to making your home what you want it to be.  We encourage our clients to explore options, create mood-boards, take photos of designs that resonate with them as they go about designing their project.

This DADU was built in the Seattle neighborhood of Greenwood and encapsulates our clients love of skate boarding, legos, diving, music and surfing.  The client wanted a space that he could entertain in and was the primary designer for this project with some oversight from the Harjo design team.  The space is entirely custom-made, vibrant, and every piece has an amazing story. The Harjo Team is most happy when they are bringing their clients dreams to life! Check out some of these blog posts that delve into the endless possibilities home remodeling presents.
