Houzz: the website that speaks the language of home improvement

Sharing ideas: Alon Cohen and Adi Tatarko, founders of Houzz.

Six years after they moved to the United States from Israel, Adi Tatarko and her husband Alon Cohen were finally able to buy their own home in Silicon Valley. The problem, however, was that they could not tell the architects and designers they talked to what they wanted done to their four-bedroom property from the images that were in their head.

Our place is in ’80s-boom Edmond, a little more than a mile west and north of downtown. It is 2,001 square feet, one story, four bedrooms, two baths, built in 1987 on a 0.2-acre lot.

My backyard is a wilderness protection area. It aches for a brush hog and a wood chipper.
