"My husband and I cannot recommend Amy highly enough! When we decided to build our dream home at the lake, our contractor recommended Amy and right from our initial site visit with her, Amy was incredibly personable, extremely knowledgeable and clearly understood our vision of what type of home we wanted. Amy provided plans that were inventive and fresh. Plans that we had not even considered! She is a great listener, always available to answer our questions and made changes and further suggestions as needed.  Amy also masterfully dealt with the entire planning process! She communicated with planning officials and met every requirement that arose. A true gem. Thank you, Amy for your visions. We could not have done this project without you."
