Client Interviews are complimentary when visiting us in studio. Alternatively, site visit interviews are $395 and will be applied to design costs when moving forward. Design fees are scaled to match the scope of your project. Small "every day" back yard pool and landscape projects usually start in the 100k range, while more complex custom hillside projects have approached several million. Let's make yours extraordinary! I look forward to helping you. Kirk

Those who have met me will attest that while I am passionate about my craft, I am from humble roots and that is part of my DNA. No amount of success or publicity will override that part of my character. I have a disdain in fact, for elitist pomp. I am grateful that I have a portfolio of clients that appreciate the finer things in life, as they have worked hard to achieve their success, yet they too remain down to earth, approachable, and genuine.
I have a very thoughtful design process, so I do think a lot about the recommendations I make on behalf of my clients. As a design professional, I would not be of much use to my clients if all I ever said was "Sure whatever you want to do is fine by me!" It's expected rather, that I would have an opinion about what is right for their project that may not be evident to them or the trades people at first, and that insight is exactly what makes me an asset to the client and installation team. In keeping with my nature, I always communicate with gentle conviction so that my experience can prevail and bringing about the best result for my clients.
As for pricing, there are plenty of salespeople at construction companies that do "designs" on spec, for free, in record time no less, and they serve a large audience for whom their services are appropriate. Those aren't the clients that call me. My clients don't want free design. They don't want whip-it-out-fast design. They want something special, unique, well crafted, clever, delightful. That's what I do, and absolutely and without apology, that takes time. Time to tinker and ruminate about every nuance to make your project the very best it can be. The business man will chide me and say, I will never design 100 pools a year, not even 10. Well, I leave that to the rest of the providers. In the mean time, I hope to design and build a project for those like you that are reading this review. Those that really appreciate an artisan and his craft, and are proud to affiliate with those who really care about the details.
I look forward to hearing from you, and I am sorry that BB did not have a good experience. I truly wish that I could help everyone. But I am finite, so I must help only those who want exactly what I can help them with.
Hopefully that is you and I will hear from you soon.
