We were fortunate to be able to collaborate with Jim on the design of our new home. When beginning the project, we thought we had an idea of what we wanted in a home; however, with Jim’s creative and unique design ideas we ended up with a masterpiece that we could never have initially envisioned. His attention to detail is evident in such things as the placement of our house on the lot, use of natural lighting, open feel and flow of the interior, and the distinguishing exterior details. Jim took ownership of the project from the beginning by attending Town meetings relating our build and developing a strong partnership with our builder. He listened to our ideas then translated them into a home that is not merely a design statement but a reflection of who we are.

Although we have done extensive remolding of one home and had another custom built they are far outside the climate and elevation of Grand County, Colo. Our criteria for a Grand county architect included: integrity within the community, extensive successful design experience in our type project, ease of communication both verbally and in electronic form, outlined service for set fee, willingness of the architect to utilize his/her expertise to design our dream while articulating monetary/structural pro's and con's and reputation of cooperation with local builders, inspector's and HOA's. During our two year plus relationship with Jim Pool he has met and exceeded our above expectations! Jim is a detailed man of integrity who meets his commitments.
Jim is now our Friend as well as architect.

From our first meeting with James K. Poole Architecture my wife and I knew that we had become a part of a team with one singular goal, a warm, inviting, harmonious living space that eventually we would call home. Jim was a fantastic listener who provided experienced guidance throughout the design and building process. We have now been in our home for all four seasons and weather it is just my wife and I at home, or if we are entertaining twenty friends, Jim’s designs have proved to make life easy. The comfortability in the flow of the home along with placement of windows capturing light and views truly makes our living here an enjoyable experience. Many of our guests have commented how well the structure fits into the environment taking advantage of Colorado’s beautiful landscape. We continue to call Jim a friend and recommend him to potential clients.

Jim designed a lovely house for us in Granby Ranch in 2010, and we have
enjoyed it immensely. His design was both practical and creative, and he
was immediately responsive to our ideas and requests in the design process.
Working with him was a pleasure, and the home he envisioned for us has
become a magical place for us and our family and friends.
