Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello

Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello was the inspiration for the design of our new offices.    If you have ever built a home or office, you know that one of the most difficult steps is tho decide upon an initial design. We love history and have a great deal of admiration for Thomas Jefferson. Upon having the idea of building an office to reflect Thomas Jefferson, it became and easy choice.

Most everyone knows Jefferson as principal author of the Declaration of Independence and former President of the United States.   Jefferson was a lawyer, spoke five languages and was deeply interested in science, religion and philosophy.  Jefferson founded the University of Virginia, convinced Congress to authorize the funding and building of the United States Military Academy at West Point, and was responsible for the Louisiana Purchase.

Jefferson designed Monticello himself.  Among his other designs are Poplar Forest, his retreat, the Virginia State Capitol and the University of Virgina. Since there were no architecture schools in colonial Virginia,  Jefferson learned architecture from books. His “bible” was Andrea Palladio’s The Four Books of Architecture, which taught him the rules of classical design

For more information concerning Thomas Jefferson and his beautiful home, we recommend visiting Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello.  If you are designing a new home or office, you may want to look to the past for inspiration.  We are happy we did.

We would also be wise to remember the words of those that founded our country. Great Jefferson Quotes:

“All, too, will bear in mind this sacred principle, that though the will of the majority is in all cases to prevail, that will to be rightful must be reasonable; that the minority possess their equal rights, which equal law must protect, and to violate would be oppression.”

“Timid men prefer the calm of despotism to the tempestuous sea of liberty.”

“A Bill of Rights is what the people are entitled to against every government, and what no just government should refuse, or rest on inference.”

“A coward is much more exposed to quarrels than a man of spirit.”
