Lake Lee Stephen Fuller, Inc.

We have learned by study and practice that the finest places to live are created by orchestrating many seemingly unrelated elements of the environment around us into a unified vision. Creating and orchestrating this vision is what we do. We design homes that address individual homeowner needs. They complement the style and preferences set forth by the families that will occupy them. We design communities that are in harmony with the landscape and set a design standard that is desired by the market of potential homebuyers. The style of homes and layout of the community are planned to the most intricate detail. We design gathering places that bring neighbors and communities together, encouraging the kind of good fellowship that has been lost from recent years in our society of fast paced living. This is what we do; we design homes, communities, public gathering places, places to be inspired by, places to call "Home". Stephen Fuller Stephen Fuller, Incorporated
