Introduction: State registered "hands-on" architect with 50 years experience in challenging residential remodels, tenant improvements, and unique non-residential projects. Architecture is challenging and personally rewarding; from a tiny-house to shopping centers, all projects are given dedication with professional expertise, experience, and talent. A career includes over five hundred built hillside and desert homes ranging in size between 1,500 to 20,000 square feet and almost 100 non-residential projects. A published author, one book is a reference manual for architects internationally utilized. The latest projects completed includes Orchard Plaza at 4488 Holt Boulevard in Montclair and a unique city owned observatory in Rancho Mirage, both in southern California. One current "Thumbtack" hire is a 9,000 square feet residence for an Arizona medical doctor. His retirement home will be built on a bluff overlooking the Pacific in Smith River, California.

Future Builders, Mr. Shingleton was a very punctual person. His plans were of very nice quality. His price is great compared to architects I came in contact with. Some even charging more for less work. I would/will use Shingleton again.

Mr Shingleton was very professional, and worked quickly to solve my problems with my build. After submitting his plans to the city I received my approval and permit within a week. I highly recommend Mr Shingleton.
