REBOUND
REBUILD
When a fire destroyed their longtime
home, a Bedford couple and their
design-build team met the challenge
to create anew.

OR MANY PEOPLE, a brand-new home is
a dream come true. So it was for Surrinder and
Michael Sandhu of Bedford, but the circumstances
resulting in their new residence were no less than a

highway and schools and its beautiful perch on top of a small
hill in a quiet neighborhood, " shares Surrinder, who was also
happy with their former home's brick exterior, which matched
the other homes in the neighborhood. Her husband, however,
favored a more New-England look for the rebuild.
