Sun Valley is consistently cited as one of the nation’s best places for raising family, advancing your career or simply living in the natural beauty. As an architect, I have been fortunate enough to help numerous people build their dream homes. To have that home fitted to order, while suiting one's individual interests and lifestyle, makes the time of designing it and going through the building process totally worth the effort, giving the client an opportunity to have the house fit them like a tailored suit!
With the rise in building material costs and labor, it is now more important than ever to keep the construction expenses within the set budget. Typically the budget is developed early in the design process and the goal is to maintain the overall square footage to control the the cost. A project's overall size is the main cost-control factor, even before the finish and trim. Also, the energy conservation is an important part of the custom house and although the "above code" insulation is inexpensive in the big picture, we encourage our clients to consider alternative energy systems and state of the art building materials available today. Also, we believe that it is important to stay current with the new energy developments and conservation options, while keeping in mind the number of sunny days in Sun Valley.
Many architects have developed a reputation for imposing their particular design style on the client; something we try to avoid. It is more important for us to work with the client's lifestyle and not have them adopt to ours. We prefer to extract the needed information from the client, while zeroing-in on the final "modus operandi". After creating a few alternative sketches and floor plans, we collectively select the "correct" style.
