Client Testimonials

"Steve transformed a little square box of a house on the Lake of the Ozarks into a unique and beautiful lake home. His imaginative approach to our ideas and his innovative contributions made our place a one-of-a-kind spot for us and our friends to enjoy the Lake.

Steve designed a breakfast room addition to our older Tudor home. His design integrated seamlessly into the existing house and incorporated interesting features like a slanted ceiling and rounded posts. The walled in brick patio he added was a super finishing touch.

Our builders had no difficulty turning Steve’s drawings into reality. "

Bill and Judy Harries, Mission Woods, Kansas

"Steve was the perfect architect to design my unique haybale house, a building technique he’d never tried before. He was adventurous enough to think outside … conventional design …, but also adamant about adhering to the principles of sound design.

Steve was very involved with the project (even helping plaster) and quick to catch any problems with the builder’s interpretation of the plans.

I appreciate how willing he was to accept my ongoing input and make last-minute revisions. When I first approached Steve, I had a pretty clear idea of what I wanted and he did an incredible job of turning what I’d imagined into something real, beautiful and functional."

"Steve was our architect for a remodel/addition to our 1912 home in the Old West Lawrence neighborhood. Steve … embraced our numerous design ideas, and created a home that exceeded our expectations. He managed the complex process of getting the design approved by the Historic Resources Commission with ease and patiently worked with contractors during the construction. It was a delight to work with Steve and everyone on his staff!"
