“I have been meaning to write to say how much I benefitted from your workshop. You are an excellent communicator! Not everyone could hold people’s attention and keep so much fresh information flowing for so long. I just wish that I had known about you before engaging an architect for our new home in the Chautauqua historic district. My wife and I would have been very interested in considering some of your plans.

I knew next to nothing about building in an historic neighborhood before attending your sessions and was soaking-in every word. Thank you for teaching me so much about the elements that are important in preserving and enhancing a neighborhood. I liked your middle-of-the-road approach where your passion for historic preservation was blended with a pragmatic appreciation for the necessity for development.

I also learned a great deal about energy conservation although I hope I can make it to life’s finish line without ever venturing into a crawl space.

When you return to Norman, I hope to be on the front row to get a second dose.”

Best regards, Joe Foote | Norman, OK
