"Alan was our architect for our hybrid post and beam studio-great room and our garage. He carefully designed the garage and addition to fit together and to complement our existing house. Every time we come into the studio we can't get over how beautiful it is. Alan was great to work with; he listened to our ideas and sensitively worked with them. He was enthusiastic about working with our reclaimed timbers and instrumental in making our studio energy efficient. We recommend him highly."

"We like to think that WE designed our house….but the truth is that it was Alan’s creativity and architectural expertise that turned our ideas into a beautiful home. Alan came up with interesting, workable plans that reflected our desire for an energy and cost efficient home that would continue to work for us in our later years. The result has far exceeded our expectations and we couldn’t be happier with our new home (or with our architect!)."

"Susan and I would like to thank you so much for helping us with our master landscaping plan. We had always wanted to open up the one acre wooded area behind our house for vegetable and perennial flower gardens. We did not know where and/or how to start. You carefully listened to our hopes and dreams and developed a plan that incorporated everything we wanted. Fortunately, our retirement has allowed us the time to develop your plan such that our perennial flower beds and vegetable gardens are quite honestly, the envy of the neighborhood. Again, thank you for your time and expertise."

"After purchasing a "fixer upper", we soon realized we needed guidance from someone who could help us navigate through the overwhelming process of renovating. With Alan's emphasis on sustainability, we knew he would be a good fit for us. Alan first helped us prioritize our seemingly endless task list. He understood and brought clarity to our design ideas, was mindful of the perimeters of our budget, and provided us with referrals to well respected local contractors. He was ever-patient with our many questions, warm, personable, and knowledgeable not only about issues pertaining to our house, but the vegetation and surrounding landscape as well. Alan saw us through every step of the way, and has continued to be a helpful resource any time we have had additional questions and concerns. Thank you, Alan!"

"I have a working knowledge about "green" energy and design, so hiring a "green" architect seemed extravagant. I am, however, extremely glad I did. With his recommendations, our house earned a “Gold” rating from CVPS, and we saved more money via energy reduction and savings than I paid for his services. With Alan's help the project turned out better than I could have dreamed, and I would not hesitate to work with him again."
