JLA Design

Engineering and Architecture

We believe in living simply, growing our own food and tiny houses.  We believe in working less so that we have more time to spend with the people we love.  We believe a building should serve the people who live and work there; the people should not serve the building.  We apply sound engineering and architectural principles to designing custom homes, agricultural and commercial buildings and sites.  

JLA Design was born out of the desire to learn about and apply the natural physical resources that God has given us, like the sun, wind and rain, to design buildings that interface with His creation, rather than deface it.  We aspire to be more dependent on God and His resources.

JLA Designs helped us with our addition and remodel plans. They were great to work with. They were responsive, knowledgable, and went the extra mile for us. When the plan needed to change due to the survey information we received, they helped us modify the plan so we could continue to move forward.

Josh and Lyndsay were great to work with on our home project. We had specific requests and wants, and Josh worked until we had exactly what we imagined. We also have confidence that the new design will be stable and watertight, unlike what we’re replacing! They were very professional, responsive, and thorough.

Josh and Lyndsay are wonderful to work with and we are very grateful to have them help with our garage design and site plan. They were very responsive and attentive to our needs and made all the changes we requested until we were satisfied with the outcome. Their professional input was invaluable when we were faced with making design decisions and their knowledge was helpful to us as first time home builders. Their fees are also very reasonable. I would definitely recommend JLA Design for your residential architectural and engineering needs.
