Becky Bartkowski Meet Cavin and Claire Costello, the creative duo behind The Ranch Mine.
You submitted nominations for the best and brightest emerging Valley creatives, and the results are in. Presenting the 2015 Big Brain finalists.
Behind a tall block wall just east of Seventh Avenue in Central Phoenix stands an architectural oddity. Among Yaple Park historic district's many ranch homes, this modern Rich Fairborn two-story house encased in curving redwood paneling and massive north-facing windows is getting a much-needed makeover.
That's thanks to Cavin and Claire Costello of the Ranch Mine, a design company that specializes in restoring and designing homes in historic and mid-century neighborhoods. On this warm March afternoon, the couple, 29 and 28 respectively, is seated at a table outside the home's kitchen, windows at their back. Dressed casually in button-down shirts and jeans, they're thinking back on when this project started a year ago.
