  1. Laraine, I’m in the Spicewood Spgs. Bk. Club , and wonder if you can supply me with names of reputable architects’ names for a small job: redesigning an atrium into a TV/Reading area. Thanks, Frances Gibich

    • Hi,

      I would recommend Oliver Custom Homes if the design issues are not extensive and/or work with ELLEN HUNT AIA and I can talk to you about how to tell if you need an architect or not.
      Laraine Barbara Lapwing has my phone number
