Concerned with making a mistake on your project?

There are countless pitfalls to navigate when designing, planning and building a home.

⇒ Architects who draft plans for a home you can’t afford to build

⇒ The project can & will consume your life without the right leadership protecting your time, money & best interests

⇒ Lack of detail & documentation in construction plans resulting in mistakes that leave you with a home full of flaws 

⇒ Contractors who promise the world but then balloon your budget with change orders

⇒ Tens of thousands of dollars (and more) wasted without the right process & clear leadership on the project

⇒ Designing, building & successfully finishing a new structure is a complex intimidating process with its’ own language & jargon

Plus lots more and plenty of ‘surprises’. If you’re going to make one of the biggest financial commitments of your life you deserve an advocate who will stand in the gap protecting you and your interests.

  • I highly recommend Janie and Studio 818 - we couldn't have made our dream home without her. Communication is very important to me when working with someone and Janie made sure she was in touch about upcoming timelines, decisions that had to be made and any troubleshooting.

  • My gorgeous new kitchen with 15-foot island puts my last kitchen in New York to shame. I'm retired now and absolutely love cooking and entertaining in this fabulous home. JP and Janie are a great find for a modern well-done design and renovation of a 1960's house.
