About the Name

Finding inspiration in unlikely places led Barbara to the name ‘Lintels & Lallies’.  The name came from the movie, ‘Mr. Blandings Builds his Dream House’.

“It’s a name that brings a smile to my face.  There is a humorus scene in the movie where the main character (played by Carry Grant) is asked a question he knows nothing about, and his response, well, you can watch it for yourself right here: video clip.  New construction can be overwhelming…and without guidance, sometimes frustrating.  Our goal is to come alongside our clients and serve their needs–and make it an enjoyable experience.

In short, a lintel is a horizontal header beam, and a lally is a support column – commonly used in thresholds.  My goal is to create an environment my clients love the moment they cross through their own lintels & lallies!” ~Barbara~
