Mountain Home Architect -Residential Design in Steep Places
A mountain home architect has an advantage over mere home designers, as licensed architects have documented university degrees. Mr. Soellner holds a Master’s degree in Architectural Design from a leading accredited school of architecture. He and other registered architects also have had monitored apprenticeship terms of service. They also have demanding architectural licensure exams to insure that only the most qualified and deserving professionals become licensed practitioners. Mr. Soellner is licensed in multiple states. He also holds an NCARB certificate (National Council of Architectural Registration Boards), which is typically only issued to those most experienced of licensed architects with about 10 years of positive practice. Mr. Soellner brings this considerable expertise to bear on a unique design specialty as a mountain home architect. While architects are also considered as designers, designers can not legally be called architects. These days, new homes have strict energy requirements, so your Architect knows that your house plans must have higher levels of insulation (which improves your “green home” rating and lowers your monthly energy costs). There are a host of other requirements that a mountain home architect accomplishes for you.
A mountain home architect is aware of topographic challenges.
A mountain home architect knows that mountainous environments are particularly demanding, as the geology is typically unique, with foundations often on sloping granite cliff sides, rainfall greater, mold issues more complex and atmospheric requirements having great impact on windows and other design aspects. A mountain home architect has a unique position in this situation, with the unique skills and experience to handle your custom residential design project.
