“We had anexcellent experience with Neel. We used his Office of Architecture to design and follow up on the building of our new house. He was able to put in architectural plans our ideas plus suggest very good changes when needed. His initial questionnaire methodology was very helpful to envision the time line and the different things involved from beginning to end of the building process. His follow up with the builder and the different suppliers was very thorough making sure he matched the quality and price we had agreed on previously. Neel's fees were also very close to the original budget he had given us. For anyone trying to build a home with unique characteristics, we highly recommend him.”
“We hired Neel Morton and the Office of Architecture to design a contemporary home with a nod to Mid century aesthetics which we are building in in the Texas Hill Country. As home builders, we look for people who are aware of budget constraints, easy to work with, and well-versed in their field. Neel is all this and much more.Professional and talented, he understands the craft of building, as well as the artistry involved. He's creative, practical and also knows all about the latest products. The highest recommendation I can give is to say that I would use an individual again and that's definitely the case with Neel.”
“After talking to several architects, I selected the Neel Morton to design my new
home near Dripping Springs. From the initial planning discussions through construction,Neel and Dax Morton
were easy to work with, responsive to my ideas and suggestions, and very knowledgeable about the green
building techniques that were very important to me. Following our initial discussions and site visit to
develop the design program, they prepared a conceptual design that captured my“must have” features in a
layout and orientation that avoided damage to the numerous trees on the lot. Proceeding to final design,
Neel and Dax incorporated details and materials that addressed my desire for an open and airy feel taking
advantage of natural light and breeze. They also addressed my requirement for energy efficient with
excellent recommendations for doors and windows, lighting, insulation, on-demand water heaters and more.
The house has a thoroughly modern appearance while incorporating traditional hill country materials –
stone, wood, metal roof.
Neel recommended several local contractors and handled the bidding. During construction Neel and Dax worked with the contractor to promptly address any questions. Building went smoothly and the contractor commented that that Neel and Dax’s well-prepared plan set was instrumental in allowing him to complete the project on schedule.
I had a great experience working with Neel and Dax and watching the house progress from ideas to plans to move-in ready. Having lived in the house for awhile now, I can say that life flows and functions easily here. Everyone who has seen it agrees that this is a unique and beautifully designed home."
