We're glad you are checking out our blog! This is the place we share stories, jokes, and helpful advice on building in Colorado. As an engineering consultant, we see the good, bad and ugly. Hopefully you learn something useful here before starting your own project.
We want God to be our source of life - spiritually, emotionally, and also physically. JLA Design was born out of the desire to research and apply the natural physical resources that God has given us, like the sun, wind, and rain, to design houses, pole barns and buildings that interface with His creation, rather than deface it. We aspire to be more dependent on God and His resources.
We believe in living simply, growing our own food, and tiny houses. We believe in working less so that we have more time to spend with the people we love. We believe a building should serve the people who live and work there; the people should not serve the building. We apply sound engineering and architectural principles to design custom homes, agricultural and commercial buildings, and sites.
