Introduction: My background is architecture and a general building contractor for over 40 years. I use this construction knowledge in my designs. I am familiar with all styles of design with an emphasis on contemporary and traditional design. I do drawings for new homes, remodeling, additions and ADU’s (in-law units). As part of my services during the design phase, you will receive multiple photo realistic 3D renderings which will show you what your design will look like when completed. As well as a plan walk through in Zoom. Your plans will include. 1. As built plans of your home. 2. The proposed plan drawings. 3. Site plan. 4. Exterior and interior elevations. 5. Roof plan. Existing and proposed. 6. Electrical plan. 7. Mechanical plan. 8. Various detail views. 9. Title 24 calculations, I will also submit your drawings to the city or county for your building permit. Then I follow up with them till the permit is issued. All drawings will be in CAD format and print to 24” x 36”. All permits do not need engineering drawings but some will. Although my proposal amount does not include engineering fees, I have several engineers that I work with that will do that phase of the work. Our initial meeting can be on site, Zoom or phone. I work with my clients to give them the design they will love.

We were looking for a room addition and Michael was to help with the architectural planning and obtain the permit. Michael was very punctual in responding to messages, coming down to get the measurements and details and he was very informative and knowledgeable as well. Unfortunately we could not avail of his services since the city restrictions did not allow the addition but we will certainly recommend Michael

When I looked for an architect to help on my project, Michael is the best one I found. He is very knowledgeable, quick to respond and generous to share knowledge. He even drew a draft to help me understand. Thank you so much Michael! I'm lucky to have a friend helping me on my project for free so I don't hire him at this moment. But if later I need to hire an architect I will come back to him for sure.

Michael is obviously an experienced contractor. He spent time with me going over a project and even mentioned aspects I had no idea about. I look forward to doing business with him again soon!

FAQs

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Most important is to listen to the client. And to gather a sense of who they are and how they live. What do they like and, what they don't like.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have years of college education in the design industry. I started in the costruction business as a laborer. To get a thorough knowledge of how things are built. I learned the construction trade. Gradually I started designing.

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    I love architecture. Creating a beautiful space is an amazing feeling and a work of art that will be around for others to enjoy for many years.
