Rob Ingwersen has over twenty years of experience as a builder in Maine and British Columbia, Canada. Rob’s father was an engineer and an architect and his mother was an artist; both parents instilled an aesthetic with a focus on function that remains with him. In Canada he studied and applied innovative green building techniques, and brings that knowledge and dedication to Ginger Hill Design + Build.
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. Emily has also 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.
