Summer Office Update; June 2018

I’m getting a lot of calls from people looking for help with projects.  After years of fairly slow building seasons, we are finally seeing the return of new construction projects here in the Foothill & Sierra regions.  That has taken many homeowners and clients by surprise.  To further complicate things, here in Calaveras County, we are experiencing much longer permitting times.  Most designers, engineers, and builders are fully committed to current clients and unable to immediately begin work on new projects, myself included.   I’m sharing this as a partial explanation for my decision to not accept new clients with commercial or public agency projects (no worries if you are already one of my clients).  I will also be limiting the number of new full-service custom home and remodel projects I accept while I work to complete my current projects.


I will continue to provide consultation services for all project types for those of you who just need help with a thorny design or code problem or determining what is possible for your project.  I will also be accepting a limited number of “design only” residential projects for clients who do not need full services.  I will be happy to discuss your project and help you identify the best consultant for your needs even if I am unable to personally take on your work.


If you have a commercial project and need an architect or engineer for a Tuolumne, Calaveras or Amador project, the following design professionals are currently working in the area:


Weatherby, Reynolds, Fritson Engineering & Design: www.wrfed.com/
Rob Westerhoff: www.rwarc.com/
Land & Structure: landstruc.com/
Aspen Street Architecture: www.aspenstreetarchitects.com/


Good luck with your project and feel free to give me a call with any questions.
