Our design process is intimate and structured to give you peace of mind and complete transparency at every decision point. Meet the people who make that possible.


Lori Wagner

Woodhouse Senior Home Designer

When she was a high school senior, Lori Wagner had a hole to fill in her class schedule. Her dad suggested a drafting class and she was hooked. As of 2022, she has been designing for 32 years.

From Lori’s perspective, being with Woodhouse feels like it was fate. After taking a break from work, she decided to research some jobs to fund her daughter’s class trip to Spain. After looking into a couple of timber frame companies, she found Woodhouse and was impressed.

“Lucky for me they (Woodhouse) were looking for someone!” Lori exclaims. “That was in 2012.”


Design Favorites

Lori has a distinct favorite when it comes to Woodhouse timber frame home plans and designs. She loves the RockyView for its ability to prove how spacious a compact floor plan can be.

“I’ve always had a passion for small homes and this one is amazing,” Lori says. “We recently did an overhaul of RockyView and I was super excited with the results.”

Client Advice

Lori wants clients to understand that good design takes time. She also enjoys it when a client wants something completely different. For instance, right now she’s working on an English Tudor design.


Final Words

“The people at Woodhouse are amazing,” Lori says. “When I refer to them as my ‘work family,’ I mean ‘family’ in the best possible way.”
