BI architects on HGTV tonight

HGTV’s program “Beyond the Box” is scheduled to feature the home of island architects Matthew and Ruth Coates tonight at 8:30 p.m.

According to Matthew, who got word yesterday that the show is airing today, the program will focus on his and his wife’s three-year effort to design and build their first home using sustainable design elements.

The young couple also put in a fair amount of sweat equity. Besides designing the place, Matthew and Ruth milled their own siding using trees on their Point White property and made their own counter tops.
