Couple leaves St. Louis County for modern city living in the Grove

Nick and Sharon Blaine visited with UIC founders Brent Crittenden and Sarah Gibson and saw some open lots in the Grove where they could have a custom modern home built to suit their specific needs. They began building in July 2015 and moved into their new home in March 2016.

“Sarah is really envelope-pushing,” Nick says. “We knew we wanted an open, floating staircase, and she designed the stairs and unique railing. We also wanted a laundry room right off the bedroom, so she worked to customize that space as well.”
