About this pro

We are a provider of materials. I have installers who work for me and are my subcontractors. I take all measurements but unlike an architect I design based on affordablity and execution requrirements. 

Every detail is understood before we start any project. All materials and costs are done up front prior to the work getting started so there are no hidden costs once we get moving on the project. 

I am a certified Sustainable Advisor and a LEED AP for BD and C. I have 4 patents for my building system and create alternative solutions for building that save energy, and cost less after completion to maintain. 

We're not a competative bid or cost builder, our pricing is set and we're not considered a budget builder, but that is because we offer a higher degree of craftmanship and focus on the final product near flawless as possible.

I started my firm in 1998 and was born and Raised in Seattle. I studied Engineering and graduated from the Universit of Washington with a BS in Industrial Engineering. My focus is on process and efficiencies. 

I've personally developed over 10M dollars of real estate in the past 20 years and have been involved with over 100M in the past 20 years from ground up to stairs and simple bathrooms.

I do this as pure joy of creating and implementing, the details are what make everything worth while and helping people achieve a concept in their mind for their project makes me very excited to give them my all.

Our process is the key to our success

We first begin with listening to the customer and what they hope to create. Once they feel we have understood them completely we discuss options.

We are a mfg as well as an execution company so we are well aware of what pricing is and work with our clients up front to make sure budgets and vision are not turned into a dissappointment. 

Once we have a clear understanding we write a simple scope of work explaining what we heard and include pricing for any design needs the client may have. 


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have a BS in Engineering from the University of Washington, I'm a LEED AP for BD + C and I am a Certified Sustainable Building Advisor.

I hole 4 patents in the Building Industry for my building system, I specialize in building envelope and building science.

What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a pro in your area of expertise?

When you hire a professional make sure you have your budgets worked out, if you have desires that are important come with those details either with pictures, or designs and ask them how they would execute on the things you want completed. 

If you don't know what you're looking for, make a list of things you are clear you can't have or must have. These types of lists help a pro understand if they can serve your needs. 


What questions should customers think through before talking to pros about their needs?
