Where were you raised?

I was born and raised in Delavan, WI until I joined the Navy in 1987. After I got out of the Navy in 1994 I moved to my wife’s home town of Graham, NC. She is the one with an eye for interior design. I just try and help her visions come to life with hand made furniture.

Which room of your house is your favorite, and why?

I enjoy our dining room in our new home. It gets all the morning sun including the sunrise through our 4 windows. Above each window is a Steel Lighting Light and the wall is covered in faux brick wallpaper. This space brings together a rustic, industrial, farmhouse appeal that I just love.

What’s your favorite part of working on a new project?

I love working with my clients to see their vision and then articulating their vision into a plan and then working the plan into reality!

What made you choose Steel Lighting Co.?

When we were sourcing lights for our new custom-designed house, we wanted that “farmhouse” look. We also had a desire to source with a small business because we are small business owners ourselves. Through some research, my wife found Steel Lighting. We reached out to them and spoke with Aaron. He was very gracious and thorough in his explanations about his business and pricing. It was a “no-brainer” to partner with Steel Lighting for our new home lighting needs!!

This would be a perfect addition to an acreage! What do you think of detached garages?

The perfect 💡 for the perfect garage. Honestly, I wouldn't mind having a three-stall detached garage as nice as this one!

When in doubt, go with 18-gauge steel.
Huge fan of this barn by @threelittleblackbirds!

This kitchen is absolutely PERFECT! Huge fan of open shelving, wood tones and white walls/countertops. How would you like to host friends and family with a setup like this?

This barber shop is so creative! Honestly, one of the most enjoyable parts of having a company is seeing how people use our lights. I never know what to expect between farmhouses, barns, restaurants, playrooms, or barber shops like this one 🙂 Also, if any of the men out there need a barber in the Laramie, WY area, go check out @martinbarberco!

Simple, clean and welcoming. This coffee bar by @thecozyfarmhouse always makes me want to renovate a little spot dedicated to coffee/tea and everything in between 🙂 Do you have a coffee bar in your home?
