Back in 2003, after a bit of convincing, Julia said yes to the little old adobe off Frenchy’s Field. “Now it is our home, and a beautiful home to me,” Julia says. “I love what Michael did, and I very much appreciate his attention to detail and wonderful vision for design. He worked very hard, and it shows.” “I didn’t think we’d be buying it two years later,” Michael confesses of that initial encounter with the house. “It was just a place to park while we looked for another home to buy. We didn’t find one. So we stayed! And we’re happy we did.” Michael Percy Grant of Percy Home Design can be reached for design services at 505/438-2699, by email at percygrant@comcast.net, or by visiting percyhomedesign.com.
