17. Good design pros are worth every penny
An architect or designer has been involved in every TOH project. And over the years we've brought in landscape architects, kitchen designers (including Kathy Marshall, who worked on the 2004 Carlisle project, among others), historic consultants, interior designers, and even paint-color experts as the situation required. Why? Because these people bring specialized knowledge to the task. You'll get your money's worth from a renovation if it looks good, performs well, and lasts a long time. Seasoned design pros will help you get there.
