"All of man's works intrude upon nature - It is man's obligation to intrude harmoniously."

Check out my favorite web blog PrairieMod its about Modern Prairie Style homes. It's PrairieMod's self-described mission to show that the ideas and ideals expressed over a century ago by the Prairie School and in the case of what Frank Lloyd Wright refined and matured over his 70 year career, can and should be studied, experienced and adopted for our modern world. Those notions of craftsmanship, honest construction, unity of design, beauty, function and simplicity are universal themes that are not relegated to a bygone era. They were meant for any time and are as true today as they were back then.
We at Image Design feel the same way that PrairieMod feels and are pursuing there ideas and philosophies.
The 2006 Spring Parade of Homes was a success with Scott Bronkema Builders. We had people from all over the state come to see this Prairie Style home. Almost everyone had great comments with a large number saying this was there favorite parade house. The home won the SMC awards for Best kitchen design $250,001 to $300,000 and Best site harmony $250,001 to $300,000.
The home sat on a narrow site with the home placed on a ridge. The site had access to two lakes Sandy Bottom and Crawford lakes with views to both from the cantilevered front deck.
