Melanie has a Bachelor of Science in Interior Design degree from Indiana University. She provides part-time support for IDO’s largest corporate Client.
She grew up surrounded by the Design and Build process. Her Father, Uncles, and Grandfather all worked as Carpenters and Superintendents. Her Stepfather is also an Architect. So, it is no surprise she has an eye for small detail and doing the job the right way, the first time. “Measure twice, cut once.”
Interesting fun fact about Melanie: her Grandfather, Master Carpenter, Charles Sipe, was hired by an insurance man named John Haynes to build a home for his family, per provided floor plans. The home built in Ft. Wayne, IN was designed by none other than Frank Lloyd Wright.
Melanie enjoys spending time with her 2 daughters and husband, crafting, and learning to sew.
