Emily and Rob Ingwersen founded Ginger Hill Design & Build in 2008, with the intention of utilizing a wealth of experience to create elegant, economical, and environmentally sound spaces.
Rob and Emily built their house five years ago; they were able to fuse all of these principles in that project and took great pleasure in the process. They feel privileged to raise a family in a home they adore and that was made with an over arching ethic of love. They help others to do the same.
Rob studied sculpture in college, that experience informs his home designs, which are light, clean and simply modern. He was brought up in a family that prized creativity and beauty and he brings that value to Ginger Hill Design & Build.
Emily Ingwersen has a diverse background, all of which integrates seamlessly with the green building industry. A passion for the water led her to work on boats and eventually to a job as a marine engineer, gaining expertise in efficient systems for small spaces. In addition, Emily worked for years in floral design and has a keen attention to detail and a passion for functional, appealing designs. For the past three years Emily has managed a ten million dollar facility in Portland, ME. In that position she was able to drastically increase efficiency, cutting the organization’s utility bills in half. Transferring her knowledge to home design and construction has been a natural evolution.
