8 Mistakes Designing Mountain Homes

This brief lists 8 of the most significant errors people can make when designing a mountain home. Read this, so you won’t make these same mistakes. This is 1 page, front and rear. 5 minutes reading time.

6 Ways to Build Better Mountain Homes

This brief lists 6 methods and details that should result in a better constructed mountain home for you. This is 1 page, front and rear. 5 minutes reading time.

5 Tips for Renovating Mountain Homes

This brief lists 5 important tips for renovating your mountain home. If you’re going to be updating, fixing or otherwise improving your mountain house (or just about any kind of house) you owe it to yourself to learn these things from an experienced residential Architect. This is 1 page, front and rear. 5 minutes reading time.

Cost Guide for Mountain Homes

This brief includes secret knowledge about the costs involved in building mountain homes. Confidential, in that no one really wants you to know this information. Why: they’re afraid you’ll walk away and they won’t have anything to build. And many want to build on a Cost-Plus basis, so you really won’t know the full construction cost until it’s too late to walk away. Be informed. This is 1 page, front and rear, but will probably take a little longer to study & understand than the other briefs. 10 minutes reading time.
