I am a building designer and draftsman, NOT a licensed architect. I have nearly 20 years in the building industry and design has always come naturally to me. I am typically hired by a home owner or contractor to develop the project on paper before construction begins. My experience helps clients come to the best decisions about space planning, aesthetics, materials and how their house will work for them over time. Most often we begin with finding the perfect site, moving on to the plan, then to exterior elevations, and finally to interior spaces and finishes. I produce drawing in conjunction with the contractor that allow all parties to agree on what the house will be. My drawings convey design intent only – the contractor is responsible for the home standing up and not leaking.
