Professional Building Designer:

As a Professional Building Designer I have worked with many different types of building framing materials and framing techniques.   Structural steel, light gauge steel, heavy wood and standard wood framing techinques are just a few.

With Interior Design, I will offer suggestions and help with interior design issues, problems, materials, colors and furnishings. This is the Finney Estate designed and built in 2010, a single story, 6,890 S/F.

Interiors require much thought and color execution to be successful.  It's hard to understate the importance of nature light and a properly designed lighting and power plan for the estate.  Properly designed interiors often takes a number of suggestions, ideas and changes before each room defines it's own environment. 


The Finney Estate was a combination of cut line stone, stucco, wood, artistic concrete and brick.   Variegated flat roof tile with copper down spouts and earth tone multi-color painted exterior surfaces.
