"After a long and frustrating search for an architect to help us with an addition to our small home we came across Jim. His portfolio highlighted that he was more than qualified to tackle our humble little addition; nonetheless he took our project seriously, listened to our ideas and dreams and translated them beautifully onto paper.  

Every step of the process with Jim was smooth and professional. Jim’s timely response to our queries is unprecedented in the world of contract work, his timeliness with getting us information we’d requested was the best we’ve encountered, his rates were totally affordable for our meager budgets and his plans passed approval by the county on the first round (something of a miracle if you’re at all familiar with Jackson County!).

We highly recommend Jim to anyone who desires a highly talented professional who is easy to talk to and a pleasure to work with!"
