A Few Random Facts:

I chose the name “Design to Order” because…

Design to Order is a play on words… I design a shelving system with the containers required to keep your space orderly. I design your kitchen to keep order based on how you function, carefully placing all kitchen utensils so you can find and access them easily. I design a space, placing things in an order that is practical/ logical for you to find and put items back in their designated homes….

My Favorite project ever was…

I organized a small “reach in” closet, about 42 inches wide, to fit: 50 pairs of shoes, all the short and long hanging items, belts, purses and misc. things. I did it all without getting rid of anything!

If I were a superhero I’d be…

Tarzan, he wasn’t a superhero, but he was my idol. The way he flew from tree to tree so freely inspired me!

 

My most challenging scenario (item vs. space) was…

I once hung a mattress and box-spring from a garage ceiling. The challenging part was getting it up to the ceiling evenly, without it falling on our heads.

 

My organizational philosophy is…

Create something that works for everyone involved.
