I posted a request for an architect to evaluate a property I was considering making an offer; Robert responded and we started on our journey. After my first report from himI knew I had found an architect; Robert gave me. Thorough evaluation and I bought the building We have been working thru the different phases and are making progress toward starting work Robert has never missed an appointment or refused to take time to talk on the phone when I call him I would recommend him to anyone who wants a caring and concerned architect Greg Dayton Gadayton@msn.comNov 20, 2015Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?To be able to provide a budget on a New Home, Remodel or Addition, a site visit will be necessary. As you may already know - a lot depends on the level of detail needed, your needs for the home and the extent of finish and detailing needed. Also the level of detail on the drawings will greatly be affected by whether or not this will be a public bid, invited bid, negotiated or self built home. I base my pricing on a $/ hour base. After a site visit and understanding your needs, I will be able to provide a defined scope and a budget or fixed fee.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?In any job I take on, I want to understand the needs and design interests of the owner to better design your new home with you. Stone Bow Studios prides itself on attention to detail, quality cost-effective design and implementation for our clients, and a personal love of design. Each design project by SBS is specific to the client and the site, and not a "canned" - "off the shelf" plan that is modified. I believe in quality materials and construction that will not only provide a home but create a place you will be excited to experience for years to come. When designing, I try to balance efficiency with the budget. This may include a reduction of mechanical systems by using Passive solar and super insulated design where appropriate and the use of Natural light and Natural Ventilation to improve the overall comfort of a home and increase life time efficiency.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work? I received my Masters in Architecture from the Savannah College of Art & Design in 1994. I completed the Architectural Intern Development Program (NCARB IDP), while working for Architecture firms in Charlotte NC. I received my Technical Professional Teaching License, CTE in the state of VA. After taking classes from James Madison University in 2010. As a CTE Drafting & Design teacher, I received additional certification through the ADDA International Certified Mechanical Drafter exam. I am continually reading the newest professional journals and case studies on passive solar design, super insulated wall systems and energy efficient homes. I enjoy keeping up on all types of design, from Architectural to Industrial & Product design and graphic design
