Brandy McLain of Modern House Numbers speaking to Della Hansmann of Mid Mod Midwest

Brandy McLain, co-founder Modern House Numbers | Tucson, Arizona

Brandy discusses the moment that sparked the company, their core principles of technology and design, and how she and her husband Rick use their design expertise to help customers achieve modern curb appeal every day.

"By 10th person knocking on our door, we realized 'Oh jeez!' There are other people who need this and want this aesthetic. We could really help." 

Hansmann, also an Architect, helps her clients and followers learn more about midcentury modern homes, what makes them great, and how to make them work with a modern lifestyle. Della has Modern House Numbers on her own home, and always recommends a new set of numbers as a top tip for any homeowner looking to update their exterior

Della notes that most midcentury modern homes will outlast their owners, and utilizing materials that are stylish but also durable, is important. Brandy and Rick knew when starting the company that design and craft were the heart of everything they hoped to do with the business. In addition to helping people add a modern aesthetic to their home, they would use their knowledge to create a sustainable business.

"We wanted to be in tune with using technology to maximize material, reduce the waste, and think about sustainability and longevity."
