Jim was brought to my house at the beginning of planning by the contractors I chose to do the work on my house. I particularly liked the fact that Jim would listen to me and what I wanted. He let me know what some of the things I could expect in the process. He also was up front about how much this would cost until a final decision time for me on whether I would proceed or stop the process. A misinterpretation of my first description of my desires was quickly corrected. Jim offered suggestions for me and was extremely open to change and modification of the plans. He was easy to work with and responded promptly to calls and questions from me. I would work with him in the future if I had the need of an architect.Nov 22, 2016
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Its best to get things started over the phone to learn more about expectations and scope of work. The next step is to set up a site visit, meet each other and see the site. I will provide a proposal for my services, should we decide to work together, outlining my services and fees.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Architects who have "AIA" (American Inst. of Architects) after their name must partake in 18 hours of professional development education each year. These courses involve life safety, sustainable design, and technology issues. These courses are designed to keep continuing practitioners up-to-date and informed.
- What types of customers have you worked with?75% of my work consists of residential remodels...typically, adding space for growing families. The other 25% is a mix of new residential and small commercial jobs.
