Ed has been involved in all phases of construction and remodeling for 50 years. Ed has physically demolished, built, wired, plumbed, nailed, and finished in every conceivable trade. Ed has been designing by pencil on a drafting board since 1967. In 1997, Ed got his first computer, and has become certified with the architectural design CAD program Chief Architect. His wealth of hands-on knowledge and experience with structural elements lends itself well to the efficient blueprints he designs today. Ed has built everything from custom furniture to an 11,000 SF residence and has owned four cabinet shops over the years. By working under Licensed Architects over the years, Ed has seen the good, the bad, and the ugly, and he knows which two to stay away from. Ed has a knack for implementing our needs/wants assessment for each of our clients to create functional spaces within a minimum of square footage, while optimizing structural integrity.  Building additions that seamlessly integrate into the home’s architectural style is paramount. Ed utilizes our “Online-Design” concept as an efficient, interactive design process, allowing Owners to take part in and make informed decisions regarding all design elements. In all cases, client enthusiasm and satisfaction is our overriding goal throughout the design process. Savings realized by efficiently optimizing space planning and creating ease-of-construction details offset the design fee, resulting in a significant overall cost-of-project savings.

Bob Blood

Project Manager Bob has spent his entire life living in S.E. Michigan. He retired from General Motors in 2007. The last 15 years at GM he was an Experimental Vehicle Builder in Truck Engineering. He believes that there are many similarities between the process of building a vehicle and the process of remodeling a home. There is a certain progression of assembly that has to be adhered to. Building an experimental vehicle continuously involves problem solving and at GM Bob was engaged in solving build problems as well as problems with the build process itself. Bob has found that using the knowledge he acquired at GM in the home remodeling industry can smooth out this process, making it less stressful for the home owner. Bob enjoys spending time with his 3 kids and their families, going up north to do anything, and hotrods. His current projects are a 1966 Chevy and rebuilding his 1988 Glastron Carlson CVX 23.
