How did you get into your business, or what motivated you to start it? "Growing up in the building industry working for family businesses in construction, and with interest in architecture since childhood, Tom always enjoyed seeing something on paper become reality.


"Having a talent for home design, and with the suggestion of a friend that Tom had drawn a home plan for in 2002, he decided to start designing homes in August of 2005 under the business name CAD Creations & Design.

"Tonyea grew up in the building industry as well, with a passion for art, landscape, and interior decorating. She has a desire to see every detail come to life from paper to the project being completed.

"Working in the design industry most of her life she realized she could put her talents and experience to work helping people create from their imagination the home of their dreams.

"In 2006 Tonyea joined Tom at CAD Creations & Design as a partner, to help offer a complete design from start to finish in residential and light commercial."
