From the Beginning

I have lived in Lawrence for many years and designed for homeowners, businesses and local civic organizations.  You might recognize some of my past work:  The Prairie Park Nature Center, Restoration of Union Pacific Depot,  Free State Brewery, the Briarwood Bungalows and the Toy Store.  

Whether you prefer a classic professional look with a pop of cool or lean more toward creative, modern, energy efficient design, you'll find my ideas more than appealing.  I offer resourceful, innovative design of homes and businesses or alterations, modifications, additions and transformations to your current residence or business.
