San Diego Architect Experience

After graduating from high school, I attended the California Polytechnic State University San Luis Obispo, and graduated with a Bachelor of Architecture in 1986. I worked for several architects in San Diego, and obtained my own Architect's License in 1988. I have been doing design, architectural and structural drafting work for residential projects in San Diego for over 20 years. I have been a licensed California architect for over 20 years, license no. C19660. I am fully insured, and have many excellent references from home owners and construction contractors. I have done everything from large custom homes and large second story additions to small additions and remodels, second dwelling units, guest houses, pool houses, casitas, historic renovation, coastal permits, coastal exemptions, permit violation remedy, and more. Most of my work are higher end custom additions, custom remodels, and custom homes. I have specialized and focused on custom residential work my entire career, and believe I am an expert in that particular field. I consider each project important, and provide home owners with full architectural services for a competitive FIXED fee:

  • Measure existing site and building conditions
  • Conceptual design and design changes (no cost for changes)
  • Design development (no cost for changes)
  • Complete lighting, heating, and air conditioning design
  • Structural calculations and structural drafting
  • Energy calculations and T-24 calculations
  • Permit processing
  • Construction support / respond to contractors' questions

I do my own structural drafting, and have used the same structural engineer for 20 years. My engineer and myself work together to provide construction documents which focus on excellent design, in combination with construction efficiency (which can help save money!). I am very familiar with the Planning Department and Building Department requirements and process, and I know many of the planners and building officials personally. I use the best plan runners, and can provide you with quality architectural services from the first design ideas to completed construction.
