Susan Y.

I’m Susan Yoder. My passion is to positively impact people’s lives and their home ownership experience. I love creating new and meaningful spaces to live in! A well designed space combines many considerations. The “technical” side of design includes functional items like lighting, quality of materials, and space planning. Then there is the “emotional” side of design, which is all about how the space makes YOU feel. Bringing together the best of both disciplines is where the magic happens. I hope to share some ideas to make that magic happen in your favorite space!
