Award winning builder and designer Clay Chapman brings to Carlton Landing his background in fine arts and 20 year experience of building custom brick homes. Chapman founded "Hope for Architecture", an initiative that aims to create sustainable legacy homes at an affordable price point. This is achieved by fusing the best of old world methods, such as structural masonry and timber framing with modern building practices to achieve a sustainable, inspiring and virtually maintenance free home. In 2014, Chapman and his family moved to Carlton Landing to fine tune the HFA building method and to use Carlton Landing as a classroom to further the mission of Hope for Architecture. To date, Chapman has trained 3 apprentices who also now build in this style. At Carlton Landing, our homes are designed with Clay's signature "1000 year house" philosophy, sustainable and beautiful homes that can be passed down for generations at a comparable price to conventional building.
At Carlton Landing, Clay is available for custom building and/or design. Visit Clay on Instagram @1000yearhouse and on Facebook @hopeforarchitecture
