AGAPP founder, Jim Felmlee, specializes in residential design. His desire to create homes started at an early age. His earliest memories include creating simplistic stick-figure plans for each member of his family. This desire blossomed when he started working for a small residential firm in 1998 while attending the University of Colorado in Boulder.

He has also worked on designs for club houses and community centers. In 2011 he started his own firm focusing on single family custom homes. His experience has given him greater understanding and working knowledge of building and accessibility codes. Because of the variations of those codes, as adapted and revised within different municipalities, and the many requirements of Home Owners Associations, he frequently studies and reviews requirements to ensure project compliance.

He can work within your busy schedule, get your design done in a timely manner, and help you create a home that can be your retreat. Put his knowledge, experience, and creativity to work for you.

He consistently held my project in regard and poured out his heart to maximize the use of small spaces, the flow of people patterns, and the aesthetic appeal. He coordinated with multiple builders and graciously incorporated cost-saving ch...
