The Builders

Designs are just magnificent ideas, dreams, and paper until they are brought to life by the builders.  The people below represent the best of the building trades and I am more than fortunate to have them on the sites bringing my plans and models into reality.


Pat Donofrio

Donofrio Landscapes

Pat's talents and expertise cover nearly the entire range of construction.  His crews build the structures, stonework, and woodwork that turn my designs into reality.  He brings great energy, knowledge, and crazy math skills to all of my projects. A true Renaissance man.

Scott Skillicorn

Creative Exterior Development

Scott and I have been working together for the better part of 26 years.  Our skills and experience have grown together over that time.  He is the master of sitework and the art of grading.  Wherever there is a project of mine you can find him atop his excavator, all smiles, building our clients' dreams.

Luis Jimenez

No Problem Pools

A good pool builder is like finding a gem among the stones.  Luis and his crew build the finest pools in the area and can take on my wildest designs like the professionals they are.

Brian's Welding

Brian Padilla - Adam Jacobson

Brian and Adam provide the metal and steel that make my modern designs shine and my traditional work achieve a timeless quality.  They are masters of metal and fabrication.


Scott Lindberg-Cristie Thomas

Scott and Cristie are the most talented artists that I know.  Their sculptural and artistic works in metal, ceramics, and wood elevate any project of mine into the realm of great art and provide a beauty that endures.
