sergimaxuelas@gmail.comEverLast Construction, as soon as they looked at our kitchen, pictured it as an empty space. The design that followed from this strategy gave us a VERY efficient kitchen. Even though it is small kitchen, it was laid out so that we have the best utilization of space. All the work was done while we were out of town. When we returned, we were pleasantly surprised by the excellent workmanship. And even found that some things were done that were not in the contract, but added to the beauty of the kitchen. There was a small punch list that was taken care of without any hesitation or problems. All in all it was a GREAT experience using EverLast Construction!!

Robert Wallis has done the architectural work on renovations at our new local homeless shelter. Our requirements have been challenging in many ways, partly because of how the building will be used, partly because our federal grant has been slow to fund, partly because we've had to make a few changes along the way, and partly because we needed to get local builders to donate labor and materials as much as possible. Robert has been completely splendid in every aspect of the work. His designs have been timely and flawless, and he has responded to changes in our plans with remarkable graciousness. He has always been flexible and readily available. His skill, resourcefulness, and charm have attracted a great many willing builder-donors to the project. There's absolutely no way he could ever have served us better than he has.

three jobs later, we still turn to Sunny and Ed for design and advice. They are unusually good at hitting the balance among the client's hopes and goals, their creative contributions, and the practical limitations (engineering and budget) of the job. My dad was an architect at a pretty high level, and taught me the difference between architects who are serving their egos vs. the clients. It helps greatly that both came from design-build experience, where the close integration of the architects and those who actually had to carry out the ideas made for perfect feedback between ideas and achievement. They are really people you can trust to work in your interests, and diplomaticaly lead you to understand what your interests are, from among all the possibilities you and they have thought of. This is what I tried for in my own professional life, and what I see in their practice.

David helped us turn ideas for a new lodge on our family’s cattle ranch into a reality. We started with requirements, concepts and dreams and ended up with a great building that not only accommodates our growing family but fits into a compound containing an 1870s ranch house and hay barn. At the onset, he parked his Airstream on site and spend days developing conceptual drawings, asking for feedback from us several times a day. When he left he had a really good idea of what was needed and we felt sure we had the right architect. David’s process makes him easy to work with: he listens; he takes ownership; he iterates his plans frequently so everyone is on the same page; does what he says he will do; he understands the builder’s challenges; and is practical and efficient. He uses computer-aided design tools that make it easy to communicate without face-to-face meeting. He had creative ideas to help us get past difficult code requirements. In addition to his design skills he is an artist and has excellent aesthetic judgment. I appreciated that David was willing to argue his recommendations (thoughtfully) but always stated that it was our home and his job to help us get what we wanted. I wholeheartedly recommend David and hope to work with him again. If you work with David, give him his head; he will amaze you.

I transform spaces according to your dreams. I can design your kitchen or bath; my husband, a licensed contractor can build it, and you may see it in Sunset Magazine! I am creative as well as practical, have a master's degree from Harvard, and do not charge an arm and a leg. I have background in residential architecture, of course, but also have worked on restaurants, retail, and even in healthcare. One of my preferred specialties is working with historic buildings and applying green practices to construction. I am known for my artistic abilities.
