Lynn Kohler, MA, MPM, grew up in the Pacific Northwest where she got her first taste of working with her hands helping her Dad tinker with cars in the garage. Her designated role was ‘light holder’ and ‘parts washer’ but she graduated to bigger things when she got her first car – a 1965 Mustang. Lynn has always loved just about anything on wheels and still does, and while a house can’t really move it can represent the same freedom as vehicles, because it can evolve into a place that is both personal and inspiring.
Lynn bought her first house in 1993 in Las Vegas, Nevada and her delight for home projects was born. From wall paper and painting, to hanging curtains and building an entertainment center she did what she could for her level of experience. Since that time she has owned four other homes, including a custom designed home outside of Austin, Texas for which she was fortunate to have hired an outstanding contractor.
For Lynn it is about change and watching the transformation of a residence from old to new again. Working with homeowners who love where they live is what drives her to work with her hands and to make sure they can watch (and be a part of) the process without stress and with full confidence that the final product will be an exceptional transformative setting for living.

Steven Morrissey, was born in Colorado and spent most of his childhood out west in Colorado, Oregon, Washington and Idaho. He started working for his stepfather 35 years ago at a power plant and learned from the bottom. His first 18 months were some of the toughest times he spent. What he didn’t realize was that his stepfather was teaching him everything he needed to know and preparing him for a long career in construction.
A few years later, he moved to Tampa to work with him again and this time, he was ready! That’s when Steve realized he was good at construction and that it was something he really liked to do.
Steve loves that every project brings new challenges and he loves to look at them when they’re done and think “we did good here!” His favorite project so far has been the Leon outdoor kitchen. That project had “a little of everything we do. Some design, engineering, problem solving and construction.”
