    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!

    A New Computer and Help From the computer Dude

    For many years, Al has been helping me tape together a vintage computer. He has managed to keep it running and to to keep me from losing my mind. After much badgering from our son, I purchaased a new all-in-one computer with a fabulous monitor so that I can see everything. The only drawback was a narrow window to get it up and running and many files, images, etc to transfer. Truthfully, I really didn't have time to do all this, and I'm sure Al didn't, but he managed to work me into his schedule. Everything is working beautifully now, and I only wish that I had been pressured by our son (an succumbed to it!) earlier.

    Thanks Al for the expertise and the teach/re-teach that occurred.

The other week he managed to help me rid my computer of a virus by using a program that allowed him to see my computer, see what I was entering, and reprogram my computer, all from his home, all while explaining what he was doing on the phone. He is always patient and helpful and his charges are very reasonable.

    He set up a double monitor display for my new laptop (a boon to writers like myself!) and most importantly, graciously, with much patience, but always with clarity, and for a most reasonable fee, taught me a thousand new tricks I need to know to get my new system up and running.

    And he always stands ready to answer my questions by phone or email. We are fortunate indeed to have him here in Sam Hughes!

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

    I would like to make everyone aware of an excellent house sitter who has looked after our home this summer. As her other references we checked could attest, Aria has proven to be an extremely conscientious, reliable and fastidious choice. I would recommend her highly to anyone who is seeking a house sitter for an extended period of time.
