One might think combining business with family would create an unworkable dynamic for brother and sister Steve and Leanne Ford, but that couldn't be further from the truth. "We feel comfortable pushing each other to new limits to get the most out of each design," says Leanne, who works with her sibling to enliven older Pittsburgh homes with beautiful, unique custom renovations. An interior designer, Leanne creates new looks and floor plans for the homes, many of which are a bit out of the ordinary and unconventional. Steve is a licensed contractor with "MacGyver-like" carpentry skills. He's adept at executing his sister's vision to maximize the charm and functionality of the properties.
