“Working with Cheryl Heinrichs Architecture and JB Davis Construction was an excellent, well coordinated experience. Cheryl took the time to learn about how I live, what’s important to me and how I want my house to feel. Her meticulous planning and skillful design created a modern home designed to be comfortable, functional and elegant. The finished home exceeds my imaginings and is an inspiring place to live!”

– Owner of Rusty


“Since we’d never built a house before, we weren’t sure what to expect. Cheryl made the process easy, leading us step by step. She took the time to figure out exactly what we wanted and included all of our key objectives. We appreciate the “out of the box” ideas she dreamed up, that we never would have thought of ourselves. We are having fun building our home, love the way it looks and are still happily married!

– Owners of “Oasis” (coming soon)

Her interests in active & passive solar and using natural & reclaimed building materials aligned with ours. We wanted to be involved in the design of our home and Cheryl definitely encourages client interaction. The design process was a complete joy; it proceeded without delays. She helped us chose a contractor and continued to work with him during construction. Cheryl and our contractor gave us a wonderful home and a very pleasant experience.”                                                                                                                             – Owners of Criss Cross

“Cheryl’s enthusiasm was evident during the entire design process. Her knowledge of energy efficient, environmentally friendly alternatives was invaluable. Cheryl was able to listen to all of our ideas and think outside the box to create a very unique home that is proving to be everything we hoped it would be.”

– Brad & Annette Adkins, Owners of Twisted


“I have built two houses that Cheryl designed, and she was great to work with. She stayed involved during construction and was always available to answer questions. Furthermore, her environmental consciousness and knowledge of sustainable building techniques offer added benefits that most other building designers do not incorporate. I would not hesitate to refer her to anyone starting a project.”

– Doug Young, Owner of Young Construction Company
