Arcanum Architecture

Business Description
Arcanum Architecture is not a reflection of a single design philosophy. Instead it is a studio based on collaboration between designers and its clients. Our best experiences have come from client input where the solutions appear unexpectedly from beneath the surface.

We provide ourselves on the design and services we offer, and we are only as good as our last design and client relationship. As a result, Arcanum Architecture is a small firm and is extremely selective in the participation process. This strategy enables us to provide a uniquely personal relationship with each of our clients. It has been such a success that a majority of our clients are by referral.

Our expertise ranges from the broad stroke of master planning to the smallest of intricate details. We delight in the design process and strive for success regardless of size, type or scope.

Your right Bonnieinflorida, I really need to sit him down. The really funny thing is my husbands company is a catering company, so he can bring what ever food they have during the day home to eat at night, as well as snacks etc. And believe me, they have good food.

I read all these comments and I agree a conversation prior to any arrangement needs to be discussed. If you put a time limit it helps to know what are the expectations are. We have been blessed a couple of times with great room mates and it was a wonderful! Both times it was to help out four a couple of months and our house guests were gracious and gave so much back! We are two busy people and having people shop and cook for us was wonderful. Great meals at night is so rewarding and helpful. We know ourselves and people who stay with us and our motto is you shop plan the meals we will clean up and provide the wine! We love helping friends and family get on the right path.

Good point! Our first set of solar yard lights purchased about 8 years ago used CdS (photo) cells. The first thing to go bad was the thin coating applied over the solar cell and CdS cell. The CdS cell then corroded. I replaced these cells, installed new solar cells, and replaced the batteries (2 AA NiCads) to keep them going to this day. They have stainless steel housings and glass reflectors, but the rest is/was junk. The newer ones out today are so much better.

@szrick, thanks a lot for your comments. It's great knowing the background of why my new solar lamps from the same company no longer have the little photocells on top. I appreciate you opening up a little mystery. I love the way technology is always evolving the things we use every day.
