Ann Arbor's Artistic Design Build Firm
Best of Houzz 2018
One of Ann Arbor’s finest and most experienced full service Design-Build firms – since 1973 – building superior custom homes and home renovations. With personal attention to your needs & dreams, our experienced design team will focus on building a relationship with you while earning your trust and meeting your building or remodeling goals with the BEST possible design, service, and performance. From Jim Acheson: My passion for architecture started as a young child sitting on the porch of our family’s historic country home. I loved the intricacy of design and latticework on the porch filigree. As I grew, I’d frequently be found doodling architectural ideas on scraps of paper. I later went on to study architecture at the University of Michigan and worked summers for a local builder. After 3 ½ years of college, I had to break from school in order to earn more money to keep going. The builder I worked for taught me carpentry skills, but also was impressed by my eye for design. When that builder saw a commercial opportunity he wanted to pursue, he turned over his customer base in residential work to me, and I started my own company from there (way back in 1973!) I love bringing beautiful architecture and building to the Ann Arbor area.
