When exploring the latest popular trends in the housing industry, homeowners sometimes overlook the style of the house itself.

Gardner Architects, Inc. “It is important to select a style that not only reflects your particular taste, but is also suitable to your lifestyle.” After all, functionality is a key component to effective design.
