There was a house in the immediate area that had recently undergone an extensive renovation that transformed a pretty ordinary brick bungalow into the most charming house in the neighborhood. When we ultimately got to see the inside, we loved, loved, loved, and realized it was exactly what we were interested in for “senior living” and asked the owners – seriously – if they would consider trading houses with us. – They laughingly said “No thanks, but we will give you the name of our architect, Jane Ann Forney.”
The rest is history…Since the moment we met Jane Ann to discuss an addition to our house she has had our complete confidence. She is extremely attentive to detail which was exactly what we wanted. Our house was built in 1941 and has beautiful elements: millwork, moldings, room-size proportions. It has intricate brickwork, windows, gables, and angles. She was quick to know exactly what needed to be done to make sure we didn’t lose any of that and proceeded to design a totally separate wing adjacent and connecting to the original house which retained and enhanced those elements. The result is an addition that everyone says “which part did you add?!”
We have recommended her to several other friends, one who has already completed a project with her, two of whom are ready to begin.
If you want to work with a consummate architect, who will treat your project with the utmost attention and respect, you will find no one better than Jane Ann Forney.
