We are renovating and building up on our 1935 Tudor Rival (or whatever they are called) house in HP.  I was wondering if you have a short list of architects that you would recommend.  We spoke with David Oswalt this week who had worked with a neighbor, who really liked him.  Any thoughts from the Candy Community?

This is good information to keep on this blog as a reference. A big recovery for the remodeling industry is expected in 2011, according to the Leading Indicator of Remodeling Activity (LIRA) and the  Remodeling Futures Program at the Joint Center for Housing Studies of Harvard University. LIRA projects annual growth in home improvement spending of 6.5% in the third quarter of 2011.
