Roy will now focus his efforts more on designing home plans for clients, builders, and developers, and will accept building projects on a limited basis. It is important to be as focused as possible on the build of a home to ensure the highest level of quality, finishes, and owner satisfaction. By limiting the number of projects accepted, we can ensure we meet those objectives.
Roy has long had a passion for designing homes, and will continue designing through his company, Roy G. Shurling, P.A. Residential Design.
As a couple we decided in 2015 to reinvent ourselves, and moved to sunny Florida from the Atlanta area. Roy had a 31 year career working with a global automation company that was focused in the Fashion, Furniture, Automotive, and Aerospace industries. Jill worked as a hair dresser for more than 20 years, and owned her own very successful salon in Sandy Springs, GA. After years of international travel, Roy decided that the "glamorous" business travel life wasn't as important as being home with Jill, the poodles, and the cats.
After a lot of thought and discussion we decided that we would combine our talents and form Southern Waters Homes, LLC. Using Jill's tremendous talents in customer satisfaction, color, and style and Roy's engineering skills we knew that we could bring a different approach to home building. Roy's grandfather was a roofer, and taught him a love of architecture, that led him to study drafting and architecture before later becoming a computer engineer focused on the development of CAD software and automation. Jill's approach on ensuring that every client had a positive, unique, and fantastic experience led us to start Southern Waters Homes with one ideal. To provide the best possible experience to clients that desired to build a custom home, and also ensuring that the quality of the build is never compromised.
