Select an Architect / Landscape Architect

A consultation with a licensed architect is required for all homeowners who apply for the Home for Generations II program. This consultation, in your home, will help to ensure that all aspects of your project have been considered and that your remodeling project will fit seamlessly with your existing home.

AIA Minnesota A Society of the American Institute of Architects

Information regarding each of the participating architects is listed below.  Feel free to call or email any of the architects to ask further questions about their work before making your selection. Once you have selected your architect, call them to schedule your 2-hour at-home consultation. You will be required to pay $50 directly to the architect at the time of the consultation. The Coon Rapids Home Improvement Foundation will cover the remaining cost

We do not categorize our work by style – we work with many structures, each with a unique style born of the age in which it was constructed. By using our "Visual Listening" tool we establish the style our client prefers, and tempering that within the constraints of the existing structure, design to meet the expectations of our client.
