Jan Evans and her husband are retired and living in their dream home on their favorite lake in the Ozark Mountains. They bought their lake lot in 1986, and Mrs. Evans really did spend nearly 25 years designing their dream home. She is the daughter of a Realtor/builder/developer, and has been drawing floor plans, just for fun, for 50 years. She started out in Interior Design and drafting in college, but later found her true “calling” in special education
Mrs. Evans is now a retired speech pathologist and special education teacher. Therefore, she is obviously not an architect nor an engineer. However, she has either added on to, upgraded, or remodeled all the homes she has ever owned prior to designing their current home at the lake. Her father also remodeled all three of their family homes that she lived in as a child, so home design has always been a passion of hers
After realizing her life-long dream of designing and building her “dream home”, Mrs. Evans decided to write a book about the whole experience, even if it was just for fun and family
She has always been a prolific writer, but has never attempted to publish any of her writings until now. Some of her writings have been fictional, some educational, and some technical, all mostly for her children or her school
Since Mrs. Evans has known many people over the years who shared her interest in designing their own custom home, she decided to share her mistakes as well as her successes with others who may be interested in doing the same.
