“Truehome is a credible tool that seeks out the design that will prove to be nurturing to our needs, allows us to heal when necessary, to take refuge from the stresses of work and the world at large, and to regain our equilibrium. Clinical intuition supports Travis’ work in this regard but, more importantly, the behavioral and brain sciences both lead me to believe it will be effective as a strategy for the design of positive, progressive, healing environments for living.”

“I have been particularly impressed by how Truehome was built with a sophisticated psychological theory at its core to create a set of exercises that are engaging and intuitive without sacrificing rigor or depth. I believe that Truehome, more so than any conventional design process, will help clients create spaces that match their personalities, ultimately resulting in happier, healthier lives.”

“People mostly look upon their homes as structures in which to live. But what if the home was much more, a living extension of the people living in it? What if the home could adapt to the physical, emotional, and physiological needs of its occupants? Wouldn’t we all be happier if our homes served us, rather than the other way around? Truehome is an innovative approach to home design and remodeling that incorporates cutting edge cognitive, ecological, and physiological principles in a way that puts the homeowner in control of the place she inhabits.”

Associate Professor of Biology, SUNY College of Environmental Science & Forestry and author of The Extended Organism: The Physiology of Animal-Built Structures and The Tinkerer’s Accomplice: How Design Emerges from Life Itself

“Chris Travis has uncovered an often overlooked factor in home building and remodeling; that each project is to become the home of a living, breathing, feeling family. A home is not just boards and nails…it cradles a family.”
