Jan Evans and her husband are retired and living in their dream home on their favorite lake in the Ozark Mountains. They bought their lake lot in 1986, and Mrs. Evans did spend nearly 25 years designing their dream home. She is the daughter of a Realtor/builder/developer and has been drawing floor plans, just for fun, for 50 years. She started in Interior Design and drafting in college but later found her true “calling” in special education.

Mrs. Evans is now a retired speech pathologist and special education teacher. Therefore, she is not an architect nor an engineer. However, she added on to, upgraded, or remodeled all the homes she has ever owned before designing their current home at the lake. Her father also remodeled all three of their family homes that she lived in as a child. Home design has always been a passion of hers.
