I do custom designs using AutoCAD. I design homes to waterfalls, just about anything you need. I've designed and planned industrial kitchens for 18 years in Woodlands, TX for the number one food service consulting company in Southwest, Foodservice Design Professionals - FDP. I have 5 years of design awards that are published in TASN magazine.
I do many different facility designs, such as schools, corporations, hospitals, stadiums, Whole Foods, Target, Coca Cola, Prudential, etc. I am artistic and creative. I love planning, designing, and inventing. I have patent pending of my own product and two more on drawing board. Almost all of my work are on-time and below budget costs. I have never had to go back and redo any of my work.
My clients are always happy with my work. I have a 35-year background in carpentry. I was a pro cabinet installer with three awards in Treasure Valley. I even do "rustic woodwork design". I am good at remodel designs of homes, decks, and almost anything you need. I am a skilled and an aggressive worker. I am honest. I show up.
I usually do my own thing. I enjoy people. I love art and nature. I am "green". I have done water features and sprinkler designs in Boise area. I like to work, learn, and grow. I am in college now to finally get my architectural degree. I love doing my own original concepts and ideas, being different, doing an original theme or look to things, or the engineering part.
I am designing items that you can use and enjoy for years. I have many happy customers in Idaho and Texas. I still do work at home part-time for an old-company team in TX. I do modeling in Revit architecture.
I am trying to get established back in Boise, to grow my company and serve people with ideas or projects in construction that are useful, original and fun, a new approach, and to help grow my community. I work with fresh ideas on how we all do things.
Using AutoCAD, I can do pre-planning work before we build, to save money and time. Be efficient, and see it living on paper first, even electronically. We can fine detail objects and forms and make detailed notes, even inventory items, re-use blocks of information, and keep accounting straight. We save drawing files, and we make quick changes to job at hand.
If you need a service-oriented idea or a plan that you need done or help with, I can bring something different to the table. I have extensive hours of work designing and planning under my belt. I have worked as a team member designing and remodeling over 2,500 school kitchens, 92 corporations, 5 hospitals, and 3 stadium's food areas.
I even did Air Force kitchen survey work in all of Japan based school system. Our company has saved companies millions of dollars and fixed issues, did redesigns, and worked with some of the country's biggest architectural firms. We even did some other types of work for prisons, industrial laundry centers and central serving and holding food facilities.
I am proud of my work. It has helped a lot of people. It has improved schools in Texas, and it has saved a lot of money and took out the headache problems. The rules even got changed.
I have worked closely with architects, engineers, builders, and vendors, as well as many food service managers and design teams for small and large projects. I've done federal and state jobs and foreign work as well.
For the last two years, I have worked on my own projects and the patent process. Right now, I am looking for funding to market my product. My new idea is a simpler design. it's a product that deals with plants. Sorry, I can't say more here.
My newest idea will be a mobile water feature that you can buy plans from me online and build or setup yourself. I don't have it all set up yet, but it will, soon.
I also have drawings and details for wood fencing and original gate designs, different from your neighbor's fencing. I even do rock, brick, mixed rock and wood designs, custom porches and decks, custom interior wood beam and suspended beam designs. I also do garden layouts with either water feature, drip, sprinkler designs, as well as horse coral design with sprinkler features.
I do above ground and mobile water features, tile, rock, malformed, trough, wall, and water drop-off designs. I also do arbors, gazebos, and custom-designed wood covers that allow plants, pots and vines to grow on. I do almost anything you can think of. I will even work together with you on your ideas.
So, if you desire a fresh idea, and you want to do something a little different and at a fair price, I am your man! I am also looking to meet and grow a team of professionals and sub-contractors with their own personnel skills who want to maintain a business and expand their enterprise, grow together as a team, and help ourselves as well as our community.
Bring a fresh face and ideas to the playing field, and
have fun with it all! I am online and on my phones. I am easy to get in touch with. Let's do something together!
Remember: if you're not a friend with them, you've got a friend with Jim!
