"I love your kitchen!" is usually the first thing someone says when they walk into my home.

It was a pleasure working with Will.  He was patient, easy to talk to, and accommodating to all of my thoughts and design requirements (he really listened to me).  His work was timely, his attitude was professional and I was very pleased with the quality of his work.  Will has aesthetic vision and with his knowledge and guidance he created an elegant and functional kitchen that fit all my needs.  The design and outcome of my kitchen truly went beyond my expectations.  I would highly recommend Will to anyone looking for architectural services.

We were looking for someone to take our ideas and turn them into working drawings.  Through a personal friend, Will Jones came highly recommended. When we started working with Will at Dwelling Resources this evolved into a collaborative effort with amazing results.

Will Jones transformed our aging 1950s ranch home into a newly reborn craftsman gem. With his creative abilities he was able translate our many ideas and challenges and transform them into the perfect design.

Our home is now complete and we love everything about it. Every space is well utilized and feels like it is a much larger home. After completion we realized many pleasant surprises that we did not anticipate. It was clear that these were the result of Will’s foresight.

Will did an excellent job working with our challenging planning and building  departments to create the dream home we were looking for while meeting the city’s stringent design guidelines.

Will Jones has our full and complete recommendation.

We are very glad we found Dwelling Resources to help us with our project.

We decided it was time to build a carport for our cars, but didn’t want the usual eyesore. We wanted an architectural gem, something that would make us smile every time we drove up. We also wanted to build a workshop that would relate to the house and carport, and we didn’t want these new buildings to block our views.

We depended on Will to help us realize our vision, to take our initial ideas and create something truly wonderful, and he did. From the curving, undulating retaining walls that flow along the hillside to the vaulted, sky lit ceilings of the carport and workshop, we are thrilled with the design. Our carport is so nice we use it to entertain!

We were also faced with the challenge of running the gauntlet at Sonoma County Permit & Resource Management Department, which was immensely frustrating.  Dwelling Resources was instrumental in streamlining the process and we were able to avoid considerable costs with their help by obtaining a septic waiver. Without that waiver we would not have been able to build!

Will listened to us and delivered what we wanted. We would recommend Dwelling Resources to anyone.

As a professional interior designer, I often work in tandem with architects.  Throughout my career, I have worked with many. The level of skill & professionalism they bring to a project is not only paramount to its success, but remains a direct reflection of me & my firm. Whenever Will Jones from Dwelling Resources is on a project, I can feel confident we have one of the best skilled and professional architects on the job.  He is and remains to be my first choice of architects to work with.

Will’s knowledge and skill stretches far beyond textbook architecture. He brings hands on experience from the field to his clients offering a plethora of know how & budgetary information. His ability to listen to our clients’ needs & desires putting that information to good use exceeds many of his colleagues. His design sensibilities are of the highest quality and I’m always more than pleased with our creative and unique, client inspired solutions.  Whether it’s a remodel or custom home, Will Jones produces the best in architecture & design.

I have had the pleasure of working with Dwelling Resources since 2004.  Will  is professional and reliable, and he is a straight shooter.  He is also fun to work with and most important to me, my clients love him!

Will’s passion and experience working on high end luxury homes is clearly seen in his designs.  His work is always elegant, whether it’s a client’s dream home or a budget conscious kitchen.

His experience in construction and the planning/permitting process have been a huge asset to me.  I use Will’s services during the budgeting process on most of my jobs.

I have been contracting since 1992 and Will is the best architect I’ve ever had the pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend Dwelling Resources to anyone.

Kathy and Jon Schieblich, Santa Rosa

Thank you so much for the great work you’ve done for us! We love our new kitchen and work center. You are quite the craftsman and architect!

Amanda and Michael Pearson-Lee, Santa Rosa

We hired Will from Dwelling Resources to convert an attic space into an office. It was just completed, and we are over the moon pleased with his work. Not only did he research and discover much unused space, but he made life so much easier by representing and coordinating with the City to attain all the permits and making sure stage inspections passed.

Will did it all---design, build, finishing touches. It was truly the most pleasant renovation we've ever done!
