“Our family has been thrilled to work with FFA! They listened to our dreams for our house and designed the perfect home for our family to live in. Every step in the process was handled professionally and excellently while making us feel cared for personally. We’re recommending FFA to everyone we know!”

“After losing our home in the Tubbs Fire, we took our dated architectural plans to Farrell Faber. Jeff Farrell was the first to convince us to think about building our dream home rather than trying to replace what we lost. Lead Designer Matt Taylor listened attentively to our scattered ideas and transformed our fragmented vision into our dream home. The team at Farrell Faber turned the complex process of designing our new home into a dream come true!”

“We had recently engaged with Farrell Faber Associates  after the October 2017 Tubbs wildfire during which we lost several homes.

We called Kevin Farrell, who along with his staff, went to work immediately to locate and produce our house plans, first for insurance purposes but later for the rebuild process.

Our interaction and meetings with Kevin were frequent .  He was accessible and available to meet regularly.  He was always willing to correspond by phone or email.  Despite frequent changes and questions throughout the design process, Kevin was  always polite and seemed to enjoy the process, which made us feel good and we likewise seemed to enjoy the process.  Kevin took his Friday afternoon, normally a half day off for him and his staff, and met with us at our builders office for consultation.

We would highly recommend FFA to anyone!”

“We have had the distinct pleasure of working with Farrell/Faber involving the rebuilding of custom homes impacted by the Tubbs Fire. Their team of professionals led by Kevin and Jeff Farrell have made the design/ permit journey postive and expeditious. When one’s professional success is gauged by the style and architectural design of a home there is no equal to them. Their attention to detail coupled with their years of experience create an invaluable roadmap for success. Undoubtedly, as opportunities arise from the ashes the members of Farrell/Faber are the only firm to turn to for anyone’s architectural needs.”
