An Architectural Design Firm
Hammers and Associates have been practicing architecture since 1990 and working for resort area homes and unique log home architecture and design since 1976. We have been committed to green architecture and practical elegance for the last 30 years, specializing in Rustic Craftsman, Alpine, retro Lodge, and related styles. Evolving from a one-man consulting business in the mid-80s, through the purchasing of Hart Engineering Group, we became an architectural, and minor structural design, consulting, and, drafting firm. We also have experience in civil engineering, as we provided these services in the late 1990s for many residences and a major project for the Lahontan Golf Course Community Resort in Truckee. Though currently less of a focus, through our prior years, our association with our engineers in Couer d'Alene, Idaho, we can do projects in 11 states in the Western region of the United States.
Following The “Can Do" Approach
The firm has gained a reputation for taking a "can do" approach to solving common, complex, or demanding architectural and engineering tasks. As evidenced in our Mission Statement, commitment to excellence and owner satisfaction is paramount. We believe the extra time and thoroughness to do the job right the first time pays for itself in the long term. We ensure that there is direct principal involvement with all projects and site observations/decisions.
Remodels & Additions
We have recently dramatically expanded into the field of major remodels/additions and have completed projects in Palisades Tahoe, Tahoe Donner, and Northstar-at-Tahoe. The construction costs of these projects have ranged from $425,000 to $1,250,000, and they are genuinely extreme makeovers, recycling the core structure, revising the exterior look and feel, and updating the mechanical and insulation components to meet or exceed today's new energy standards. As stated previously, we consistently deliver designs where the finished residences look like they have always been that way and/or where the additions are a cohesive and integral part of the architecture.
