Thank You - Thanksgiving 2015



Wishes to all our clients and colleagues for a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday.  Gratitude for all that you are and do.

And for the day after Thanksgiving...
Kudos to REI for their #OptOutside campaign for Black Friday.



"Outdoor experiences build better people who are healthier, who make better decisions, and who can take other people, other creatures, and other perspectives into account.


Spending time outside is pretty much the opposite of standing in line at a store to get a discount on something you probably don’t really need. That’s why I’m such a fan of taking Black Friday, or any day really, as a chance to step away from our materialistic urges and connect with the outdoors and the people and places we care about. Thank you, REI, for giving us a gentle push in that direction."
- excerpt from "The Solace of Vertical Places" by Brady Robinson (read more here...)

Real Estate Assessment

Have you found a commercial space or home that you like, but want to convert it into a space that you love?  Whether a property is already purchased or being considered, we can assist you in your planning.  Invest two to three hours with a professional architect and let us show you the design possibilities so it can become the home or office space of your dreams.

We are available to work with realtors, property owners, and potential property owners to prepare feasibility consultations.  For commercial properties, accessibility evaluations are also performed by our office together with appropriate consulting professionals.


We spend up to two hours at the property*, prepare a brief report back at our office, and are available for an additional phone meeting to discuss the presented design options.  Options may include renovations, additions or energy usage improvements.  During our visit at your property, we will do a brief walk-through, ask key questions and discuss your needs to aid with your planning.

Report includes notes, plan diagrams, preliminary construction cost estimates, and our directory of related local service providers and professionals.  Samples are available upon request.
