Paul Harms grew up in the western suburbs of Chicago, Illinois. From an early age he was fascinated with houses; not only in terms of design, but by how they were lived in. He earned a Bachelor of Architecture degree from the prestigious School of Architecture at the University of Miami in Coral Gables, Florida; an institution dedicated to smart growth principles and classically-inspired design. Paul’s career, and life, has always revolved around houses. He started working on high-end renovation projects on Chicago’s North Shore. Then, intrigued with the concept of New Urbanism, Paul joined Urban Design Associates in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, to help create the architectural landscape of several new buildings and neighborhoods. Next, Paul joined well-know designer Eric Moser at Moser Design Group in Beaufort, South Carolina. It was at this coastal location, in the beautiful community of Habersham, where he was inspired to create his own firm, LiveWell Home Design.

While Paul Harms has designed houses all over the country, a good concentration of LiveWell homes can be seen in Habersham, an idyllic community located near historic Beaufort, SC.
