Michael Malinowski FAIA covered the “Architect perspective” as part of a panel of experts who examined the present and future impacts of Technology in Homes across California and the United States. He pointed out that contractors, integrators, and design professionals have a lot of work to do to get ready for 100% Net Zero Energy by 2020 as mandated in California law.

From our Client today: Hello Dream Team!! We did it! We’re in the final stretch and Ronda, the kids and I couldn’t be any happier! We absolutely love our “old-new” Home! More to come of course once we’re all settled in and the final paint, staining and asphalt gets poured. Thank you all so much for your hard work, dedication and passion in making our ‘Oasis’ come to life! It wouldn’t have been the same or nearly as great without each of your professional and experienced input! (And I hope you’ve each already received several calls from those we’ve referred to you… the best compliment that can be given!) Wes, Ronda, Cole & Taylor

The 12th annual Code Conversation Event – founded by M.F. Malinowski AIA some 13 years ago – was another great success last evening with over 50 design professionals and building officials. There was a lively exchange of ideas, comments and forward looks, and best of all a continued development of the excellent working relationships between us all.

We LOVE customer feedback . Hi Alex and Mike. This is Mimi seconding Phil’s motion. The Corner Pocket is taking shape and it is a really wonderful design! It looks great on the property and will satisfy our needs. We met with the cabinet maker for the second to final time yesterday. It’s fun to have them made just the way we want. Finish electric next; insulation; sheet rock; etc. Thank you for making it look really special! I especially love the little finishing touches on the eaves …a piece of wood that forms a shape. I don’t know what you call them, but I love them. Also the dormer and upstairs loft are really a wonderful design. We love Ralph and Kyle. They are good listeners and very responsive. Ralph’s experience is very confidence inducing. They have kept us on track. All the subs are great too! All very personable and talented. We couldn’t believe the framers up there in the 103 degree heat those few days. Whew!-Of course, the back yard is a pretty big mess and we’ve tracked in plenty of dirt! But we’ve learned how to deal with it. No pain no gain.—- J Thanks again to you both. Feel free to drop by anytime you want to see how it’s taken shape. Mimi PS Lots of admiring neighbors (even if we do wake them up early!!)
