Client Testimonials

Building a house can be a onerous, unpleasant task but NOT if you have Bill Wallace working for you. His attention to detail is legion, as is his work ethic. He returns all calls, answers all questions, works within budget, completes all tasks within the agreed upon time frame, and does so always with a smile! He has planned two beautiful and comfortable homes for me, a Cape Cod and a Craftsman, and both are a testament to his incredible abilities.

Bill is an outstanding architect, with deep knowledge of both design and engineering, but more importantly a very keen ability to understand and address his client’s needs. He is very hands on when needed, being present on-site and dealing directly with subs to ensure design integrity and to address and resolve issues quickly.

Rick M.

I highly recommend Bill Wallace as an architect and project manager. He is an excellent problem solver – he is very knowledgeable about zoning regulations, engineering, design as well as materials. He is sensitive to budget limitations, and worked within my budget. From the first day I met Bill – I felt we were partners in transforming my country house.
