A Principal with Defining Home Design Group, Tom Adams holds degrees in both Architecture and Interior Architecture.  Previously of Adams Gerndt Design Group, Tom launched Defining Home to provide wholistic architecture, design and retail services to the residents of Birmingham and the surrounding areas.  Whether you are looking to build a home from the ground up, revamp the interiors of your home, or simply purchase a new sofa, Tom wanted clients to be able to come to one place.  Well-regarded in the industry and community, Tom’s passion for design and architecture is infectious.  As a result, he has built a team of like-minded architects, designers and professionals who seek to serve our clients in whatever capacity necessary. 

Tom’s projects have been featured in local and national publications such as Birmingham Home and Garden, Veranda and Garden & Gun. Specializing in ground up construction, Tom has significant experience designing not only client’s permanents residences but also vacation homes such as lake, beach and farm houses. One of Tom’s most unique architecture and design projects was a fully equipped duck hunting camp on a barge in Louisiana.  It is truly one of a kind. A design chameleon, Tom as well as the rest of his team seek to leave a project without injecting a “signature style” into a property.  The finished project is always a true reflection of his clients.
