|Originally from Kansas, Dave Argo has spent the past 20 years living in the Colorado Rockies working as an architect on residential and commercial projects in mountain resort communities. Since founding his firm, No Name Architects, in 1994 (located halfway between Aspen and Vail), Dave has focused his efforts to provide personalized design services to clients interested in building high-quality, custom log and timber homes. One of the handcrafted log homes designed by his firm appeared in the March 2004 issue of Log Home Living.
Joseph Augitto owns Archibello LLP in Minocqua, Wisconsin, and has been providing architectural services deep in the Northwoods for nearly three decades. Through his firm, he focuses on energy-efficient log and heavy-timber residential designs as well as commercial projects. He designed the home featured on the Log Home Living July 2004 cover.
Jerry Locati graduated from the School of Architecture at Montana State University in 1984, and has focused his professional practice on work in the western United States ever since. His residential and alpine design firm based in Bozeman, Montana, specializes in using native sustainable materials that come from the regions where they?re implemented. Jerry?s numerous award-winning designs often incorporate log construction techniques as well as log elements.
Greg Steckler started building log homes in 1978 after spending five years as a residential appraiser and building inspector. By 1990, with 35 log homes completed and his company, Log Rhythms Inc. launched, log home design became his focus of attention. In 1998, Greg acquired Log Homes on the Internet (www.lohti.com), and now he divides his time equally between residential and Internet design projects.
