Houzz was founded by Adi and Alon, after taking on the task of remodelling their home. They started as most do – with recommendations from friends and family, and a pile of design magazines to weed through. After becoming very frustrated with the process, they started Houzz – a website where home owners can look for ideas to upgrade and update their home, and a place for builders to advertise their wares.Cursive Fonts - which ones are goodRead our new blog article - Overcoming your Unnatural Fear of Cursive Fonts
