About Trudi

  I believe architectural design is equal parts of creativity and problem-solving. Listening is the most important skill to understanding how I can help you. Once a problem has been solved then the beautiful personality can come together.      


     My formal education is in Architectural Design & Fine Arts. My informal education comes from over 20 years of working with clients and contractors. Seminars and continuing education keep me on top of the latest materials, trends, and regulations. All of this combined with my keen ear, attention to detail, creativity, and talent for understanding you and your needs, provide a formula for success.

Another reason I chose Trudi is her CAPS certification. Given that this is our retirement home, Trudi was able to incorporate creative designs that will better allow us to stay in the home.
