When we decided to build an addition onto our home, and remodel portions of the original home, I learned of SAGE Designs through a friend of mine who had hired Sage for their new home design and who enthusiastically recommended him. We interviewed two other outstanding architects as well, and chose Sage not only for his recommendation by a friend, but because he clearly had a great balance of creativity and practicality. He works closely the construction team in a design-build fashion, with careful attention to environmental concerns and efficiency. Over a few months, we met with Sage periodically and gradually watched our ideas and plans unfold onto two-dimensional paper then with three-dimensional computer modeling. Sage is a careful listener and easily blended our ideas with some of his own. It was a fun process! And after the permits were secured and the building began, Sage would periodically visit the construction site and be available when we ran into unexpected needs to tweak the design (the nature of construction). Our house is beautiful, and we could not be more thrilled about it.
