lots of ideas to make sure we get the right one for you and your family. Challenges are met with unique problem-solving.

The Schematic Design Package pulls together the "basic" pieces

built-in design, lighting and electrical layouts and interior or exterior trim, which make the project sing.
The Construction Documents show how to build
the project for contractors and permitting office use.
We work as your advocate during design and construction -- making sure the design is built the way we both envisioned it, while meeting your expectations of materials, cost, and schedule.
