Working with David was a pleasure! He was organized, professional, highly experienced, and had a good understanding of municipal rules, procedures and personalities. He is very detail oriented, good with timeline/project management, and maintains a sense of humor during the inevitable stresses of a major project. We heartily recommend him!Read More

David was the architect for the new home we wanted to build. We had ideas on a floor plan for the first floor and David carefully listened to all our comments. He had us send pictures of things we liked in houses so he could get a better idea of what we would like incorporated into the design. We asked him to revise just a couple of things on the floor plan he initially sent to us; he listened carefully to our comments and the next floor plan was just what we wanted. We had no idea what the outside of the house should look like so we told David to show us his design concept. After we saw the exterior design, he asked what changes we would like. We said none as it was perfect just the way he designed it! David is a very good listener, thus getting our ideas into the plans. But we thought it was terrific that he added special touches to see if we might like these. For example, he had added a balcony to the second floor office, and a pergola that were wonderful and special additions. We wanted our new home to be green as well as handicap accessible on the first floor so we could age in place. David’s plans for green building included geothermal heating, ICFs in the basement, SIPS for first and second story walls, and low-e windows, which have decreased heating and cooling costs as well as making the house very comfortable on the coldest and hottest days. Too often handicap accessible homes can have an institutional look, but not so with David’s design. Our home does not look like it is handicap accessible, as David seamlessly incorporated these features into the overall design. We strongly recommend David to anyone looking for an architect. He is not only a brilliant architect with terrific ideas, but also fun and easy to work with. We were living on the east coast when working with David, and in spite of the distance there was no stress. We loved the experience of working with him and we now have our dream home thanks to David.Read More
