Ron Navratil owned his 11+ acre lot outside the town of Santa Fe for twenty years before he decided to build a retirement home.  I was commissioned to design the home, assist Ron in managing the owner-builder style of construction, and get involved on site as conditions and my abilities allowed, up to certificate of occupancy. We quickly conceived a basic design which then evolved over the two-year course of construction into the massively built 3-level home/studio/gallery/local landmark. I used the Autocad 3-D model to generate construction and contract documents, material take-offs, and to document and communicate design changes with the owner and the trades.
