Eric Chez, Client

"We hired Eric Miller after an exhaustive search for the right architects for our needs. Eric listened intently, and created a design that is spectacular, and suits our needs, not his.  The office staff and Eric are great to work with, and their excitement to build a fantastic home is palpable."

Harvest Construction, colleague

"I give Eric and his firm the highest marks for Both Design and Construction Documents along with Construction Administration. The attention to detail during the construction phase are what sets Eric apart from many other firms."

Lisa & steven schatz, client

"Eric is very easy to work with, diplomatic and gets along well with contractors and others involved in the project. We recommend Eric without reservation."
