• Johnson Residence

  • In 2006 Don and Michele Johnson came to New Mexico to attend our Homing In seminar. At that time they were looking for land in Oregon on which to build their dream retirement home. During their trip they fell in love with the Santa Fe area and shortly after found their perfect property. Although not in their original plans, a turn of events lead to Don and Michele becoming owner/builders and they poured themselves into the complex task with heart and soul. The finishednest, which they moved in to in March, 2008, is one that we are all proud of.
