How McDowell started their web page design journey

Summary

Clean, refreshing, sharp, fun, grown-up, intelligent, savvy, real, and not too busy. Prospects should enjoy visiting the site due to its' color, layout, and simplicity. Not too simple, but no bombardment of more information than one knows what to do with. The site should be relaxed enough to where the prospect does not feel like they have just visited a used car lot or electronics store. Although, the business aspect should stand clear. Keep it creative, professional, but fun too!

Company name

JR McDowell Homes, L.L.C.

What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?

Contest Holder Requests:
- Home Page design is primary focus.
- One internal page too if possible, not exactly like home page but coordinated with it.
- I do not believe I will be using CMS, but will be updating it once and awhile.  If it is better to coordinate it with a CMS then okay. 
- PSD all the way.
- Of course I am looking for unique design qualities, which is why I am launching this contest on 99 designs.  Myself and My Company:
- I have been in the business for over 10 years
- With 10 years experience I decided it was time to start my own company
- My experience is building custom homes from $500K-$700K
- My buyers are savvy and knowledgeable
- Products I deal with are quality and somewhat high end
- I build Energy Star rated homes
- My business is located in Atlanta, Georgia
- Building custom homes is enjoyable and challenging
- I enjoy skateboarding (downhill, park, slalom)
- I wish I could fly my remote control helicopter better
- I wish I had more time and money for vacationing/holiday
- If you look in the sky long enough you are bound to see a shooting star.  Look away too soon and you will miss it.Remember:

I am not some MEGA BUILDER.  I will only be taking on several projects a year.  The site needs to speak to prospects interested in having a custom home built with attention to design, details, style, and constructed with quality products.  The design of the site should convey all of these items.
