RDS Architecture - New Construction

As we sit in our incredible new home and think back on our journey to get here, it is impossible to imagine taking this journey without you.  We started with the idea of building a home in which we could be comfortable but have ended up with a dream home in a dream setting.  We have so many things for which we are thankful and many of them are the result of your involvement. 


Growing up in southeastern Idaho, I spent a lot of time building tree, ground and underground forts. In school, I excelled in the arts, wood shop and math. My first job out of high school was cleaning up construction sites, which led me to framing homes. Eventually, I worked for contractors that did all aspects of residential construction, from digging foundations to finish carpentry. I started college at the age of 20, knowing exactly what I wanted to do: become an architect. I attended Idaho State University in the pre-architecture program, moved on to the University of Idaho and finished my degree at the University of Colorado with a Bachelor of Environmental Design in 1985. In my quest for a license to practice architecture, I did an internship with Steamboat Architectural Associates and Habitat Design Group. Istarted my own business of design & build in 1990. Licensed in the state of Colorado in 1995, I have had an enriching and successful business ever since.

Bring well-rounded experience in residential design and construction management to a postion of ARCHITECT.
