Hug Your House is a home improvement site which brings together ideas and resources from various areas of the home improvement world. The users of the site are mostly either suppliers (selling products), professionals (advertising trade services), and home improvers (enthusiasts and customers). The site works as a showcase of cool ideas which makes it interesting, and also provides a way for all of these people to get in touch with each other.
This project is a good example of the whole SCL team working on a project. The programming was done in-house, the design was done in parallel so each part of the site was created with the other parts in mind. It’s fast and stylish, like us!
