Hi. I'm Jim

Architect. Remodeler. Professor. Author.

I spent decades helping clients achieve their remodeling dreams.

Now I help you remodel with confidence so you can fall in love with your home again.

Because I believe that everyone deserves a home that meets their needs and leaves them smiling.

Even as a kid playing with Legos I wanted to be an architect and to design people's dreams.


Well, with my three architectural degrees and my architecture license I have been showing families what's possible... and how remodeling right makes every day better!


I began designing remodeling projects so I could learn to estimating job costs well.

But then I fell in love with remodeling.


Now I love nothing more than helping folks improve their homes and improve their lives.


I taught architecture at Texas A&M. I have always loved teaching. Helping people to grasp new ideas is priceless.


Now I help homeowners plan and coordinate their dream projects so they have a stress-free experience and get results they love.


As I left the daily practice of architecture and remodeling, I wrote Remodel Without Going Bonkers or Broke to help folks learn to remodel right.

Remodel Your Kitchen Without Going Bonkers or Broke helps anyone get their dream kitchen.

Both books are Amazon bestsellers, and both were Readers Favorite Gold Medal winners.

Remodeling Coach & Guide

Remodeling projects can still spiral out of control, costing thousands extra and ending in lawsuits.


My 1-hour online classes and my live 1-on-1 coaching sessions help you remodel with confidence and eliminate costly mistakes so you get results you love and are proud to show off.
