New Google Sites for Local Home Builder


I have done quite a few website redesigns over the past decade or so.  When taking on a new project, I suggest to customers that they utilize a content management system (CMS).  The ease of updating content (versus traditional code editing) is a huge winner for clients.

My favorite web CMS platforms are WordPress, Google Sites and DNN.  See the benefits of each here.

The Project:
This project was for a local home builder looking to modernize and expand their online presence.

Out With the Old:
The old site was something I designed a while back using MS Expression Web (html 4, CSS and JavaScript).  It was functional, but not very easy to update.

BEFORE REDESIGN - HTML4

In With the New:
For the new website I opted for Google Sites (, with embedded Google Drive documents, Picasa Web albums and YouTube videos.
