In the course of designing and building more than 30 homes, you tend to learn a few lessons. For Paul Lopa, the takeaway is simple: if you make the design and construction process as simple as possible, people will walk away happy. It's what earned his firm one of Angie's List's Super Service awards, and it's what turns clients from customers into spokespeople. Whether he's turning in hyperdetailed design plans, walking clients through a complicated renovation project, or helping turn a dream home into a liveable reality, he takes the hassle out of contracting and construction with the help of his team of handpicked experts.

At Created By You, visitors discover new depths of their creativity. Armed with a rainbow-array of supplies, guests make masterpieces on ceramic or canvas. When painting ceramics, painters first choose a blank white dish or figurine as their muse, and then adorn it with glaze. Though the glazes appear muted at first, they become vibrant in the kiln where high heat reveals their true colors, much like bringing a baby into a candy factory reveals its true selfish nature. For those trying their hand at painting, they can learn in a more structured canvas-painting class. During these sessions, they'll follow a teacher's step-by-step instruction to create a landscape or still life. Each student works on the same image, but in the end, every image is as unique as its creator. And the sessions are BYOB, so as artists realize their visions, they can also sip on their favorite beverage.
