Matt and Marie's Dream House Plan

When Matt and Marie decided to start a family, space was their first priority. The current structure couldn't support the architectural plans they had in mind. Their decision to tear down the old house was a bit overwhelming, but they were up for the challenge. With Matt's construction background and Marie's intuitive design sense, the couple created a home to be proud of. When choosing wood stain, Matt and Marie's New Jersey home required protection against the elements, but also a variety of color. Their final choice was Sagebrush, a siding solid color stain. Today, Matt and Marie, along with 3 year old Gina and 1 year old Fin, are enjoying all the extra space.
