getting started

This is the beginning of my blog page about thoughts regarding my 15 years of practicing architecture in Montana. Even in Montana our practice is changing in light of the falling economy and increasing desire from owners, clients and building users for energy efficient sustainably designed buildings. It is fortunate in many ways that our practice is being pushed to change by market economy and higher utilities. This is making building owners aware that they need to consider utility costs when altering or constructing new homes or buildings. My hope is to track this progress in my own practice and post thoughts about successes and my own education related to this ever changing area of our practice.
