The Homestead Partners
House plans for small, big, colonial, modern, and everything in between. You may insist on having more than one. We're Ron Sakal and Sallie Hood (sakal-hood.com), a husband-and-wife team of architects who've spent decades creating workable townscapes, rescuing city centers from random development, designing beautiful houses, and teaching bright young architecture students how to do the same. Along the way, we've become experts on the styles of American houses, ideas, designs, and materials that transform small and affordable spaces into wonderful places to live. Now we're offering those great American styles to everyone who yearns for something more interesting and more connected to the American culture. Look around our collection of houses and see what moves you. After that, our firm is just like that home of yours: small and affordable.
