Hestia Designs Team Member Tiffany Baynard


Owner & Director of Construction and Design

Tiffany is a construction and design veteran with over 15 years of experience managing construction projects across the country.  Her passion for building was initially stoked by her father, a builder, as he taught her how to build houses growing up in Maine.  She continued to refine her expertise by designing and building her own investment properties in Arizona, Georgia, Texas, and North Carolina. She now enjoys partnering with clients to share her love for refined functionality and aesthetics.  Tiffany believes that no two houses are the same. Each home has unique character, charm, and functionality that can be maximized through creative and thoughtful application of construction and design techniques.  Tiffany truly enjoys partnering with her clients to transform their vision into a home with character and excitement.
