A mix of emotion and force of imagination quite unlike any other occurs as people take their first walk through a house that may become their home.

That blend of thrill, of unleashed heaps of ideas, of attachment – true homing – occurs for people in builderland when they first put boots on the ground and walk a site, when they arrive, later at that same site and smell the air of construction, and hear the saws, and the thwack of spruce, pine, fir, and the hammer guns.

Then, a crescendo of that meld of visceral power and magical imaginative flow occurs as a builder walks the fully-plated and roofed building enclosure, rife with possibility, opportunity, and a step-change sense of that moment a unit, a house, a structure transforms into a place where a mom, a dad, a couple, a kid, a grandparent, an individual human feels it's his, her, their home.

This is the exuberance that a builder awakens with each pre-dawn and goes to sleep uplifted by each evening.

This comes through – along with a fully-transparent, evidence-based, floor plan strategy, design, and engineering for a household's life in a time of ongoing health and well-being challenges – in Garman Homes' founder and CEO Alaina Money-Garman's frame walk through the "Barnaby" America At Home Project, taking place near Raleigh, N.C., sharing the inspiration and design decisions project leaders made in spaces in the home as a result of what the data suggested.


Money-Garman's entry vestibule to master suite tour is a connect-the-dots clinic that matches research, to design, to execution, to the je ne sais quoi potency that transforms a place into where residents can feel comfort, security, identity, privacy, passion, fun, and freedom.
