"As a homebuilder of some volume myself, I have never seen anyone able to apply both the right brain of a builder and the left brain of an architect like Mike Tutmarc - the outcome has been extraordinary for both my wife and me."
- Peter and Laura Orser
"Mike has a creative talent for design. He combines the best use of the site, the exterior and interior with the desires of his clients. This, added to unique touches and finishes, sets his plans apart from the norm. He uses a very talented work crew; they were all friendly and easy to work with. We have been in our island beach house for 12 years and are still in love with it. We continue to get very nice unsolicited comments on it, from both friends and people passing by."
- Bob & Clodagh Ash
"We hired Mike to do a major remodel and a second story addition on our Laurelhurst home some years ago and have had him do multiple other projects for us ever since. It has been great to have someone in the architect/ build business that we can trust so we know that whatever we need will be done both creatively and efficiently. It has been a great relationship for my wife and I over the years."
- Jim and Janeen Mount
"We have worked with Mike about 15 years on a range of projects. One of the great things about working with him is the versatility of his team. We can count on him for the same attention to detail and great result whether it is an industrial strength concrete retaining wall, a new kitchen, or extensive updating of all interior flooring, fixtures and trim. And, we love the continuity and quality of his people. We have seen the same capable and pleasant folks over the years. That says something to us about how he runs his business and give us added confidence."
- J. Loux and Carol Sanders
"We hired Mike to design an extensive addition and complete remodel of our View Ridge home. A few years later he designed and built a new office complex for our law practice. We have been extremely happy with both projects and appreciate Mike's creativity, his practical approach, and the great attention to detail. As a result, we actually enjoyed the process both times."
