“We met Jim in 2014 during my interviews with architects for rebuilding a new home in the Rubicon area. Jim sounded the most logical, knowledgeable and cost conscious from all the architects interviewed and in came on board in November 2014. We are in the final stages of permitting and Jim has been the rod in the middle of everything to get all the permits in place to start construction phase soon. Jim is very experienced architect, with good knowledge of the area and a good listener. Whenever we had an ideas he would take it and build on it for better results.”

“We are very happy to have him in the team and he has been the key for everything.”
