“Mike built our house 14 years ago and we still love it. In fact, we love it just as much today as we did when it was brand new. We think the world of his work. His attention to detail was very high and he completed it on time and he did it on budget. It’s a traditional home and was featured on “West Wing” as Jimmy Smits’ house. It was also Robert Duvall’s house in the movie “Kicking and Screaming” and we just had the house shot for a milk commercial with Salma Hayek. They all said the same thing – the designers work is impeccable.”
