Ryan Group Architects (RGA) is by far the best architectural firm in the entire Truckee/Tahoe region. I've been buying land and building homes in the area for the last 15 years. We are currently building our dream house in Martis Camp. We selected the RGA team after extensive due diligence and having worked with many other architects. As we are nearing completion, we could not be happier. The team we are working with, Scott, David, Jen and Annie are all great and true professionals. David was our lead architect and did a masterful job designing our dream home. Jen is the master planner. Annie is a fabulous interior designer. With Annie's help, my wife has not even had to hire an outside interior designer. Scott runs the show and provides wisdom to everyone at RGA.
RGA worked with us early on to develop a budget and help select a builder. Through their help, we selected Tony Hardy Construction (THC), just a terrific organization made up of master craftsmen and top-notch subs. RGA and THC work closely together and jointly manage to our strict budget.
I strongly recommend the RGA as you consider building your dream home.

Ryan Group exceeded our expectations with regard to design, respect for our budget and ease of communication. They are a pleasure to work with and repsected our budget by alerting and informing us about budget increases, so we could make informed decisions about changes we decided to make to our design or materials. They took on quite a challenge with our lot, because it includes an unbuildable zone right in the middle of the lot. Their solution took maximum advantage of the sun exposures and view, resulting in a home we never imagined and are delighted with. I recommend them without reservation.
Designed a great house that was way overbudget (so far over budget that builders in the most desperate economy wouldn't bother spending time to give a bid!). So they do not seem to know their profession and would not re-design the house, so they do not honor their own contracts either. To top it off, both partners became insulting toward us when we tried to work this out with them. Avoid unless you want headaches!

This group designs a good house, but cost and budget is lightly if at all considered by them. So unless cost is no object avoid them. They went so far over our budget builders in the worst economy would not spend the time to put together a bid - these guys do not seem to know their business. Plus, just for good measure when we tried to get them to perform to their own contract both partners insulted us.
