Editor Nigel Maynard chats with an architect and production builder about what classifies as "good design" and how builders can include more of it in the homes they build.

Alaina Money-Garman, CEO of Garman Homes and Fresh Paint by Garman Homes located in Cary, N.C., joins Rame Hruska, AIA, co-founder and principal of Intexure Architects and Boxprefab, located in Houston.

"Good design exists at all price points," says Money-Garman. "It's difficult. It's always a trade-off, but I think that that forces us to be good editors. I think when you have a blank checkbook, that good design sort of flies out the window. Good design exists at all price points, but I think when you have more restraints, you're forced to make decisions about the design narrative or the design aesthetic you're trying to achieve."
