Jerry Gropp Architect AIA PS-
I'm a specialist in contemporary home design.
The updating of "*PNWC" homes, mine & other designers',
has become a very important part of my design practice.
By virtue of their careful design and detailing, these are
true "Craftsman" homes- (often available at a discount).
As I mention below, I've done many before-sale informal
surveys of under-consideration properties covering both
house condition as well as remodeling and/or updating
possibilities. This is especially good to know in advance of
completing the sale. Many people make the Earnest Money
"subject to the approval of Jerry Gropp Architect AIA".
As a native- born and raised in Seattle and a graduate of the University of Washington's highly-regarded School of Architecture, I thoroughly understand the climate and other localized considerations we home designers must take into account. Vaunted "Green Building" techniques are simply common sense, have long been an important integral part of my practice.
I’ve done a lot of low cost informal home surveys in my time. With my many years of experience as a “hands-on*” residential architect, it usually doesn’t take me long to evaluate a structure and to advise go- or no-go on a Real Estate deal. *By “hands-on”, I mean being out in the field overseeing my projects- or in some cases building them. When I do said informal survey, I take the prospective buyer all over the house- including the roof, comment on conditions encountered (no written report- no guarantee that we've seen any/all troublesome bad things). As we go, I explain the various updating, alteration/ addition possibilities/ideas as they become apparent.
