Introduction: Commercial /Residential architectural and engineering experiences. Provide coordinations in whole building design, conceptual drawings and permit sets. 3D rendering presentation services available. I provide recommendations to build a healthy and sustainable home incorporating alternative home energy features; such as solar power and geothermal. The processes- Preliminary Design - Every project will start by interviewing with the owner. The owner(s) will provide existing conditions of the building and site information. These information will be included in the “Design Agreements”. The owner(s) will allow adequate time to finish the existing condition survey, design and cad productions. Once the owner(s) approve the preliminary design- The production team will creat the permit drawings to include details and code informations. The process could take up to 6 month of time; depending on the complexities. Below is what my customer commented; Jane is both a realtor and an architect. She helped me with window replacement projects and my rental unit. The rental unit project included: bathroom renovation, kitchen design and re-distribution of an existing laundry room to include laundry and apartment entrance with entry hall.  The subsequent  tenants said the apartment design was excellent. Jane is passionate about  architecture. She ( and her husband David) ) helped me visualize my existing living space into a customized space that is beautiful and practical. Much appreciated was their being current with trending materials. It  provided me with more design choices and lower price tags. In particular, the kitchen floor product they recommended Had design options that jazzed up the whole main level living area. Jane  has the ability to increase a home‘s  value without unnecessary expenditures and her healthcare background adds a healthy living environment to her design projects! She did a lot of research on my window replacement product. I never would have considered casement windows. They were a good choice for my window openings. The finished look is awesome. I enjoy my home’s curb appeal every time I come home! I highly recommend Jane’s services. Linda B, Falls Church, Va

I am a First time property investor and have found this home improvement process daunting and challenging. I have found contracters who have misrepresented their experience and the bait and switch tactics that they employ even on the myriad of Apps that proliferate the Internet. Jane helped me navigate the process and gave me helpful information and suggestions that I will use to get my project moving. I wasn’t able to utilize her services On this project, However I will definitely keep Jane in mind for for future projects. Thank you Jane
