Working with us

Whether it is an addition, a renovation or a new build we love working with our clients and helping them through the design process.  We want our clients to love their home or work space and the end result.  Sometimes the design and construction process can be difficult or stressful, but with the right team it can be fun and pain-free.  Over the years we have developed a great working team of Surveyors, Soil Scientists, Landscape Architects, Engineers, Contractors and Designers to make our projects run smoothly.  We take the most enjoyment in working on Historic homes or in bringing old charm and character to new or existing homes and we love incorporating one of a kind unique or salvaged items into our design.  Working with our small firm allows an intimate relationship between the client and the design team.
