Mike Farnsworth – Partner
has been designing and building outdoor living spaces in Jacksonville for nearly two decades. He has worked on projects from St. Marys, GA to Ortega, to St. Augustine, and everywhere in between. Mike particularly enjoys working on unique water features, including inside people’s homes, and strives to make each design not only beautiful and full of character, but also functional and maintenance free. His hands-on experience with everything from welding fabrication, to stone masonry and carpentry allow him the opportunity to push the boundaries of design to create truly one-of-a-kind spaces.
Mike prides himself on his attention to detail and doing things the “right” way. He carefully oversees the construction of each project to ensure homeowners get an end product they will be able to enjoy for years to come.
Erika Miller – Project Manager
is a proud Florida native from the small artistic community of Mount Dora. Growing up in this atmosphere helped shape her into the creative person she is today. Erika inherited her family’s love for decorating and pursued a degree in Interior Design at Florida State College at Jacksonville. After graduating, Erika further honed her design skills through various creative endeavors, traveling, and working for diverse design firms including Stephanie Jarvis, Inc., Mrs. Howard / James Michael Howard, and Office of Architecture and Design. Her attention to detail and love of all things that make a space special and unique have been the key to her success in the design industry.
Erika is always up for a challenge and loves spending her free time outdoors. Whether she is biking, paddle boarding, or relaxing at the beach, there is no denying her passion for outdoor living. This is why she is excited to expand and adapt her skill set from the interior design world to the outdoors.
