About Us

What We Do

thought-ful adjective  thot-fel “characterized by careful reasoned thinking.” “Given to or chosen or made with heedful anticipation for the needs and wants of others.”

This definition is the basis of how we work and how we provide services to our clients. We take great pride in designing homes that are timeless in style, enduring in value and that reflect our ability to translate our client’s wishes into reality.

Thoughtful Development considers every job to be a unique opportunity to be creative. Each design is based on the individual character of the home, the client’s wish list and what the house really wants to be. There are no plan books in our office—every design starts with a clean sheet of sketch paper and evolves thru the collaborative efforts between our clients and ourselves.

Husband and wife team Steve Handy and Claudine Pierce are the core of Thoughtful Development. Claudine, licensed in the District of Columbia in 1990, provides the residential design services while Steve manages construction, however they work hand in hand to provide a well coordinated project.
