Of all the building types, your house is, without a doubt, the most personal.
It provides the setting for the theatre of your life and is a reflection of who you are. The house becomes a home with the incorporation of those personal touches that make it a special and comfortable place to hang your hat.
How can I help you?
If you’re looking for a change in your physical environment but don’t quite know how to get there, an architect may be able to help put things into perspective.
If you're like most homeowners, you probably dream of one day completing a major home-remodeling project. And I'm not talking about retiling a tub here. This is the once-in-a-lifetime renovation--the kind that dramatically changes how you live, energizes the entire household, and makes all the neighbors really jealous.
Perhaps your dream is to build a two-story addition with a family room below and a master bedroom and bath above. Or maybe you've always wanted to expand the kitchen and install French doors leading to a wraparound deck. Regardless of what your dream entails, all major remodeling projects can benefit from the expert design help of an experienced, licensed architect.
I know what you're thinking: Architects are way too expensive and only necessary when building multimillion-dollar homes. The truth is, architects are worth the extra cost because with thoughtful evaluation and design, they can help meet - and often exceed - your expectations by working to interpret your design wishes and finding the optimum solution. Typically, it is not so much about building more space, but building better space.
In fact, depending on the size or complexity of the remodeling, calling in an architect might be the only way to get the project off the ground, and to ensure your dream comes true.
