To help celebrate the Fourth of July, we decided to talk a little about the number one residence in the nation, the White House. The White House is located at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue in our nation’s capital, Washington, D.C.
Designed by Irish-born architect, James Hoban, the house was built in the neoclassical style with white-painted Aquia sandstone. John Adams was the first president to reside in the White House, moving in on November 1, 1800.
According to the official White House website, “There are 132 rooms, 35 bathrooms, and 6 levels in the Residence. There are also 412 doors, 147 windows, 28 fireplaces, 8 staircases, and 3 elevators.”
Take a look at some of the rooms that have inspired a nation.

We wanted to thank Joe Freenor and Joe Dusel of CFT411, Cabinet & Furniture Trends & Information, for the wonderful post they did on yours truly, Design Build Team. Below is a excerpt from their article.
“They[DBT] bill themselves as creators of distinctive spaces, and looking at their output I have agree with that assessment. They have registered architects driving the design and building process, and since they build what they design, it means everyone’s on the same page.”
We appreciate the kind words! Thanks for highlighting not only our work, but our dedication to our employees. We look forward to reading more of your posts!

Someone recently sent us a link to a game called “Design Your Dream Room” on Bravotv.com and we in turn wanted to share in the fun with you! We are not really one for games, but we couldn’t help being sucked in. This game allows one to design a room from scratch, complete with wall color, rugs, accessories and furniture. I have already designed an entire home and vacation home by a simple click of some keys. Try it out and see if you don’t become obsessed with this game as well. Good luck and a little advice, try this at home and not at work!
