I'm pretty good at listening to what you say, hearing what you mean, and creating something equal to or exceeding your expectations. While I may have many clients, you will always feel like you are my only clients.
I am happy to do a simple garage or porch addition, a new home or even your yacht club clubhouse for you.
I am licensed to practice Architecture in Michigan, New York and New Jersey.

We sit down and discuss your wants and needs. Some clients bring tear sheets from magazines or pictures that they have taken that illustrate ideas and solutions that appeal to them. After the initial meeting, the clients go home and I begin to do my “magic”. That is, assemble all of the ideas and desires that were discussed in the meeting and graphically represent those. After checking and double checking that I have incorporated everything discussed, we have a second meeting where I present various solution options generated from the initial meeting. Some ideas are acceptable, some not, some need more time to fully digest, but in the end, we fine tune the sketches until everyone is completely satisfied. Preliminary construction documents begin and once they are finished, everyone sits down again to review the issues that arise when I begin to consider the actual assembly process more closely. Once those issues are resolved and solutions are agreed upon, final construction documentation commences and at the end of that phase, it’s time to submit those final documents to the local authority for approval. While the approval phase is in process, the General Contractor is setting the construction phase in play.
During the construction phase, I often visit the site to assure that everyone involved is on course and to answer any questions that may arise. Together, the clients and I may walk the site during different phases.
Once completed, the clients enjoy their new home for years to come.
"The renderings and specs are great and I really appreciate the excellent work that you are doing on this. Please send me your bill and I will pay you. Anything to do with my 1931 Tudor house I always want everything done right, and so I really appreciate the level of professionalism and detail in your work. This really exceeds expectations."
