Whether you're interested in designing your own dream home, or preparing your child or yourself for a career in architecture
or construction, I can help you reach your goals. With over 35 years of architectural design experience plus the real-world knowledge gained from building 17 homes as a licensed General Contractor and overseeing construction on countless projects, my education, field-work, and knowledge of 2d Autocad
drafting might be just what you're looking for.
I have six-and-a-half years of college training plus experience with countless clients and with numerous project types has provided the training I need to effectively communicate my thoughts and ideas. And having hired and tutored many young designers and draftspeople over the years, I've learned to put myself in their place in order to obtain great results from their efforts.
I focus on rational, rather than whimsical design. A student of the Bauhaus philosophy
of 'form follows function', my floor plans are straight-forward and efficient, yet always with an eye on composition. My drafted plans are clear, thorough, and accurate having learned from real-life experience of what is wanted and needed by workers in the field. Having used Autocad since 1981, I've developed a simple, yet effective technique for illustrating my designs that gives them a three-dimensional quality without the tedium of constructing an entire 3-D model and another for color-rendering that adds realism over plain black and white drawings.
My Erie location is convenient to most of the north Denver to Ft. Collins metropolitan area.

2. Blown or loose attic insulation can actually be scattered by air drafts. And sometimes it's not equally...
