The process of conceptualizing the design of a new home is complex, especially for the homeowner. Steve Arnn truly takes this process to an art form. He works very collaboratively with his clients, always trying to bring the clients ideas to the surface (sometimes hard to dig out) and interactively present the ideas in a concrete form by hand drawing the ideas. At first, I thought we should use state of the art software for producing the ideas, but as we went through the process, it became clear that we could innovate and collaborate more effectively and interactively while Steve put the ideas directly on paper in real time. Steve is well versed in historical styles, however does not let them become a limit in conceptualizing the client's ideas — as a result, the design that Steve developed for our house was truly original in concept, while holding to classical style. While conceptualizing the design is a key attribute of Steve's approach, he shines even more during the implementation of the design. He holds communication as a key to making sure that issues are addressed in a timely fashion (as they invariably develop) and works together with the clients to find effective solutions. He maintains this attention to detail for the entire duration of the project. Steve works in a very self-effacing style focused on providing maximum value to the client and while not completely his role, he truly becomes the client advocate in the building process. –William J.

Steve Arnn is a special designer. His attention to detail is exceptional. In our situation, he designed our remodel and it could not have come out better. Everything he does is first class and he envisions design attributes that others fail to see. Our home is now a special place for our family. Our guests often comment on how beautiful our home is. Steve is a special talent and he never disappoints. –George & Darlene Shaheen
