Having graduated from the S.I.U. School of Architecture in the early 80's, Paul soon began realizing his dream of creating and building a home in Southern Illinois. After purchasing a piece of land with nothing but an old barn on it, Paul lived here for five years building furniture and designing his home. He got a good sense of the land during this time and also was able to plant 4500 trees as a way to return to the earth that which he would use in his craft. He spent many hours collecting the stone which would become an integral part of his home design. The first structure he built was a bath house, which is currently being renovated into a a zen cottage for retreatants & guests. Paul's home is currently being used for day retreats & yoga classes, and is available for local groups. What kind of home have you been dreaming of building?
