Since the firm was founded in 2000, John TeSelle Architecture has provided residential design with an attention to detail and client needs. Projects include additions, renovations, and ground-up new construction.

Client service is the center of my architectural practice. The needs and desires of my clients are the generators of everything that I do. My job as an architect is twofold - to give my clients the information and options they need to make good decisions and to communicate those decisions to the contractor.

Budgets are as important to success as are ideas. We will discuss costs and budgets at the first meeting and at every design milestone, to ensure that the design develops in a realistic environment.

A distinguishing characteristic of my approach to is that I will personally attend every meeting, coordinate all the drawings, write the specifications, and draw every detail on the construction documents. I do not hand off architectural design or management work to others. My practice is sized to allow me to provide this level of consistent attention to every job.

I am always interested in talking with people about their ideas and dreams for building.

Commented: Please, what was the change in grade (in feet) from front to back? The floor to floor height is 11 feet, which is about the same as the grade change. The building is positioned to take advantage of the slope, in that the longest wing goes out across the slope and gets...

Commented: What type of flooring is this? It's beautiful and colorful! Those are 2x6 douglas fir boards, turned on edge. They are structure, floor finish above, and ceiling finish below -- basically a solid slab of wood. Hard to install and not much fun for the contractor,...
