From Homeowners

Hilary has a talent for fitting a house to its site and she is gifted in including both aesthetics and practicalities in her designs. Her leadership was valuable throughout the building process.

She listened carefully to us and we continue to be pleased by how well our house suits our needs, and our site, and by its timelessness. —Diane

From Builders

I’m a general contractor in the Portland area and first met Hilary in 2004, through a mutual friend and client. I quickly realized the authenticity and experience Hilary possessed. I had an opportunity to begin working with Hilary, Initially being one of her trusted contractors, and soon after, hiring her firm for my own projects, personal and professional.

My working relationship with Hilary over the last twelve years has always been rewarding. We have worked together on numerous successful projects, and I always have her as my ‘go-to’ professional when I have the opportunity to work with an architect. Her eye for design and its potential come from many years of success, and I’ve always considered her to be a valuable asset to my team.

I’m thankful for my relationship with Hilary. She’s always demonstrated a first class approach to getting things done. Her easy-going, ‘can-do’ and thoughtful attitude, are key in making it easy to navigate through the many challenges that come by nature to the world of design, remodeling and building.
