About Binary Formations

 

We are a husband and wife team, Kevin and Diane Hamilton, who launched our first consumer app, Home Inventory, in 2005. The Mac-based home inventory management app was in active development for 17 years (Fifteen Year Anniversary Video) until we reimagined this type of app and introduced Under My Roof in 2021.

Under My Roof helps us even more than we imagined and we’re thrilled it’s also helping thousands of others around the world. The journey continues…
