Architect

Karen Bellamy

520.326.3551

www.kb-arch.com

You won't find a better architect than Karen Bellamy! I have been enormously pleased with her work. She designed an addition for my home and it looks fantastic. It fits so nicely - it looks like it was part of the original 1946 plan! She offered great suggestions when I needed them. She also was very responsive to my ideas. She transformed my vague vision into reality! It was stressful for me to embark on this project. But Karen instilled much confidence and was a pleasure to work with. Working with Karen made the process fairly painless! Please feel free to contact me for more information!

Contractor

RD Hollenbeck DiamondTail Construction

R.D. Hollenbeck

52400-0473

I would like to recommend a high quality licensed contractor named R.D. Hollenbeck.

He can build anything from custom homes to studios, garages to sheds. He built my sister a beautiful art
studio/guest house in Blenman last year. He also remodeled her kitchen recently. He does very high quality work.

In 2007 he restored amd remodeled a 1920's home in the
Feldman's neighborhood, which was done beautifully.

R.D. is a very creative builder...he has an artist's soul and he works with precision. He is also very pleasant to work with.

Like all builders he needs more work right now, so if you need even a small remodel or addition, I highly recommend him.
