Our portfolio contains projects from small cottages to large manors, with a focus on mid- to high-end residential and vacation homes. Light commercial design, such as office expansions and new construction, also share our portfolio. We perform all phases of design from conceptual layout and space planning to structural engineering and finish details, anywhere in the United States.
In 1946, Harry G. McCullough established a family-owned business specializing in residential design. In 1979 the business was incorporated to H.G. McCullough Designers, Inc., and the same family atmosphere is apparent in our client relationships today.
Self-taught at an early age, Harry McCullough began his design career by accompanying his grandfather, a carpenter and a contractor, to job sites during summer vacations. He was eight years old. McCullough remembers, “I would draw house plans and ask my grandfather what he thought. That’s where I first became interested.”
After graduating from Reitz High School in Evansville, Indiana, he designed homes for a lumber company and then served in the Naval Constructions Battalions as a draftsman and a carpenter. Following that, he studied mechanical drawing at Evansville College (University of Evansville). In 1946, his construction education was gleaned from the late John Anderson and Henry Veatch, two of Evansville’s most respected home builders at that time.
It was around that time that McCullough’s love for drawing home designs became a family business. His wife Mary supported the venture by documenting specifications and keeping the books.
