Building a new home

This has been so insightful as I am in the process of starting a new home build. This is my first time building and my knowledge of “how things are suppose to work” has been minimal. I stumbled upon this podcast and so glad I did as it has helped me understand what a builders roll is vs a designer. It has helped clear the muddy waters as I begin the process. We are currently in the house plan stage and we have chosen a builder but he did not have built in designer. I have only listened to a few podcast so far and it has been super helpful. This content is super valuable, wish I would have stumbled upon it sooner. Great job ladies!!

PS: I’m also based in Utah and just by listening you’ve given me some great names to look into.

One of my favs!

Amy and Melissa are such a fun duo to listen to. This podcast is full of great content for any design professional!

Kind of pretentious...

I enjoy many things about this podcast but am bothered by the impression that their style should be everyone’s preferred and it seems like they put themselves above others - in a bit of a rude way. I learn great stuff just wish it were more kind and less judgmental. Other podcasts are fantastic and more positive.
