Jim was our architect and helped with the design work on a complete remodel. His in-depth knowledge and extremely high standard for producing quality work was always evident. He was very helpful in giving us suggestions as to what would work/look nice to allow for us to be involved in the decision making process of our home. Jim knows how to build a house correctly, professionally and is a fabulous with details. Even our subcontractors commented on how detailed he was with drawings. We also appreciated his flexibility in making adjustments to our plans so that we could stay within our price range. Jim got our plans drawn in a time efficient manner and made time to meet with us when we were in town (we live in another state). Finally, we must mention that Jim has an outstanding team that is very talented, knowledgeable and were a great pleasure to work with. They are professionals with expertise in design, both architecturally and for interior design. We would absolutely use him and his team again. They get the job done beautifully and they do it right! We recently finished this project and we have already had several people as us who our architect/designer was. Needless to say, we are pleased with the end product!
Jim and his staff are AMAZING…my husband and I love them. Jim designed our high-end, vacation rental home from the bottom up, and it’s a hit out of the gate — we are completely booked thanks to Jim! We have an ocean-view condo in San Clemente, CA, and our guests repeatedly gush over how beautiful and comfortable the space is, and they never leave without our design firm’s phone number. Jim completely understood our need to create a unique and special place, that sets us apart from the myriad of other vacation rentals. Our reclaimed wood doors alone accomplish that. Overall, Jim designed a contemporary and colorful, yet also fun and beachy space, that makes our guests feel special. Plus, it’s durable, functional and multifunctional, as it’s perfect for families, romantic retreats, or for a girl’s / guy’s getaway. I can’t say enough about this totally professional and dependable guy, who is forward-thinking and has his finger on the pulse!
When we purchased our house we knew that it needed someone with vision to turn it from an outdated building to a home that is not only beautiful but is a place where friends and family love to relax . Being fairly new to the area, we kept hearing the name James Glover as being responsible for transforming many of the beautiful homes in our area. After hiring James we realized how he could see the difference that even small details make in the total outcome of a project. He was able to blend his ideas with what we wanted and was so easy and pleasant to work with. He is so dedicated to what he does. He also was very conscientious and helpful in keeping the project cost effective. Everything turned out so much better than we imagined. One unexpected bonus was that because of how deeply respected and liked James is, every sub or vendor we contacted that knew we were working with James, treated us with special care. We will definitely turn to James for any future projects.
I consider James Glover to be a genius. We bought a 1936 Spanish style home that had been partially remodeled. With James help, we added about 1000 sq feet and made into our little Tuscan Villa. We were very impressed during our first meeting when he walked around the property and immediately started drawing idea’s. He had a vision right away. We not only needed help with the interior design but changing the entire architecture to flow with what was already remodeled without looking remodeled. I loved working with him. He listens to your ideas and then incorporates his own to create a home you love. James is extremely genuine, professional, creative, and talented. The sub contractors that he associates with are also amazing. We were very impressed with their quality of work and their level of professionalism. I’m so glad we found him to help with our project. I can’t say enough great things about him. He went above and beyond and made what could have been an extremely stressful remodeling job, really enjoyable. Thank you James!!! You’re the best!!!

James Glover has over 25 years experience in the architectural and home design field, His keen ability to quickly assess a client’s desire for a home project, envision a beautiful design, create and finish a project …..is nothing less than creative genius.
His scope of knowledge , current concepts and products, years of experience and excitement for beautiful home design are invaluable to his clients.
My husband and I are in the building field and have worked with Jim for our personal home as well as for/with many clients. I also have an art background. Our recommendations are very select .
James Glover is at the top of the list.
Jim did a beautiful job with our renovation, my husband and I absolutely love our home!! He was there every step of the project, from demolition to final clean-up and move in day!
He was very detailed not only with the plans and design, but during construction, as well. He was instrumental with the cabinet design, floors, ceiling, fixtures, plumbing, lighting, stucco and paint, just to name a few.
I especially loved how he was very accommodating with meeting us in person and responded immediately whenever we had questions or were confused about a detail. Since this was our first time, (building a home from the bottom up), communication was very important to us, and if not face to face, it was either on the phone or email. He would go out of his way with sending pictures of everything we were discussing or choosing, he would also supply samples (I’m a visual person) of materials and products, which made selecting and making final decisions much easier.
We wanted Jim to focus on an open floor plan, to look timeless, without obstructing the view, and he delivered!!
We worked with James Glover and his team in renovating our home in 2011 and 2012. James is an extremely dedicated professional who strives to design a home that is not only beautiful but functional. He is innovative, creative and a pleasure to work with at all times. I cannot say enough positive things about him. Anyone would be lucky to have the opportunity to work with James Glover.
James was hired for his creativity and vision to help create/design a one of a kind house. As the owner of the house remodel, he went above and beyond my wildest expectations. Not only did James design a great house but helped with furniture selection, paint colors, etc. and once again did an outstanding job. I would highly recommend his firm. Great guy too.
James Glover provided a complete design for a kitchen, dining room, family room remodel. James is so easy to work with and so creative. He brought to us his creative ideas, incorporating them into creating living spaces that complimented our tastes and life style. I LOVE my new kitchen. It is so attractive and yet so functional. I have had nothing but rave reviews from family and friends!
Jim Glover designed and supervised the building of our home. The project was handled from beginning to end with professionalism, efficiency and cost effectiveness. He always paid attention to the details and this home reflects his extraordinary design talent.
We have contemporary tastes and a non-traditional home. When did not realize the condition of the home we purchased and had to go down to studs. We were disenchanted with some of our original design work and contractors, and were referred to James Glover through a friend. The design work and professionalism were amazing. Our house is truly unique. Glass walls in bathrooms with views of Koi ponds and green screens, and fountains are a few of the design touches that set it apart. We love football and wanted three televisions in our living room, but did not want it to look like a sports bar. Two of our TVs can be hidden behind a beautiful stone wall and gorgeous concrete mantel. When finished my house could be one of the homes shown of Houzz thanks to James Glover. To top it off they are the nicest folks to work and interact with. You won’t be disappointed.
We have worked with James Glover on two separate projects – designing a new home and remodeling an existing home – and he is a creative genius. A savant! He comes with our highest recommendation. Plus he is a really great guy and fun to work with. With the length of time it takes to do a project right – that is important!
He not only designs the physical building, but also all of the building materials and furniture. He lays out the room around how you plan to live in the room and use it. His work is beautiful and functional. He does not waste space and is up on many of the latest “green” options.
We have gone to look at other homes that Jim has done for other clients and his work is incredible. They all open their doors for Jim and invite them to take his new clients in to their beautiful homes whenever he asks them. I think that says a lot about how other clients feel about him. I can’t wait until our current project is complete!!
Working with Jim was an amazing experience. I loved watching his creativity in action– What an eye for detail and design!!! We started with a kitchen remodel that spread throughout the house (my fault!!!). I couldn’t have been happier with our choices– from wall color to baseboard sizes to fixtures to design principles. We LOVE everything he did for us and HIGHLY recommend him to anyone looking for an artist who really listens to and performs for his client.
