BIOGRAPHY

Cheri Belz grew up surrounded by architecture, design and real estate development.   After beginning her career as an artist/art & architectural historian, she turned to architectural design in 1979.  In addition to working one-on-one with clients to help them obtain their "dream home", she also designs, build and sells "custom spec" homes.  Each home is designed specifically for its site with a concern for the incorporation of passive solar design, integration to site in form and scale, utilization of a mixture of natural materials and a unique flow of forms and spaces.
