Woodworking happens to be a passion for this particular homeowner. While working for 40 years in a high-level corporate position, which included extended international travel, he would come home to his traditional Indian Hill residence and find himself going to his woodshop for a bit of stress relief.

Back then he would build cabinets, tables and “pretty much anything.” More recently his focus has been on rocking horses, cradles and high chairs for his eight grandchildren.

When empty nesting, retirement, and his wife’s diagnosis of cancer pushed the couple to simplify their lives a bit, the two looked to nearby Mariemont, specifically at the Tudor-style residences being planned by Greiwe.  Their Tudor Revival architecture adheres to town planner John Nolen’s 1921 vision.

Unfortunately, three years ago, while in the preliminary planning stages for the new condo, his wife lost her battle.  However, her positive outlook on the move helped guide him through the design and construction phase.
