Sam worked with me step by step on the design, permitting and construction of a new athletic center for our small private school. Having never been involved with new construction there was a great deal for me to learn. With Sam’s patience and guidance, the end result was a highly functional, efficient and attractive (inside and out) facility.

We worked with Sam on the renovation of a house in VT and we were really pleased with the whole process; it was a very enjoyable experience. He is extremely skilled, straightforward , creative and incredibly collaborative. We came to the table with lots of ideas (good and bad) and Sam worked to create the best possible result, while also providing input and guidance on ways to achieve our ultimate goals. He kept us to a great timeline and we were always making progress towards the finished project. Sam also created a great team, recommending a builder and designer who made the process seamless.
We originally found Sam through friends who had worked with him on a large project; now we recommend him to all of our friends! He is a true gem.

We have had the pleasure of working with Sam on a custom home and two large scale commercial projects in Stowe. Sam has worked very well with our customers in helping them bring their visions to completion. The projects included a large custom home, a new restaurant with two expansive commercial kitchens and multiple apartments upstairs as well as an athletic facility for a private school. He has worked on these complex projects and executed designs and construction details in a thorough and thoughtful manner taking into consideration all the necessary elements and potential challenges. The customers were quite happy with their completed project and we as a builder, found the projects successful as we were provided with detailed drawings that kept the projects on schedule and on budget. We enjoyed working with him and continue to recommend his services to prospective customers.

Sam is an incredible architect, I give him my highest recommendation. He combines real design and creativity with a practical sense that has made our home in Stowe our favorite place in the world. We continue to use Sam as a resource when we are thinking about things big and small, he has done two projects for us, and he has become a great friend. If you are thinking about building a new home or a renovation, there is no one I would trust more than Sam. Happy to be a reference at any time.

I hired Sam Scofield to design a modern cabin with efficient use of space and the potential to be off-the-grid. As an initial matter, he is quite knowledgeable of both design and construction, and was able to anticipate and modify a number of design features that were likely cause complications during construction. He also has deep experience with the northeastern climate, and suggested several helpful design accommodations for the cold winters and warm summers we experience here. The design itself was quite thoughtful, and captured exactly what I imagined for the cabin. I was impressed with his work on the details, like window size and placement, as well as his arrangement of the floor plan (which was different than I had originally envisioned). The process was iterative and he was always receptive to my ideas (although some were quite misguided and I benefited from Sam’s foresight). Sam came highly recommended, and now I can personally recommend him as well. He was a pleasure to work with.

We always had older homes so when we decided to make the move to Vermont seven years ago we decided to build new. Our experience with Sam Scofield could not have been better. Not only did we see him in Vermont during the design stage but he came to see our current home in Brookline, Ma to more fully understand what we were looking for in Vermont.
He guided us to the right builder from the four we interviewed knowing the builder’s and our personalities.
He figuratively held our hand throughout the building process often meeting us on site. He is incredibly knowledgeable on all aspects of the process.
From the day the foundation was started to us moving in our home took a month less then expected.
It has been seven years and we still love our home in no small part to our great architect!

Sam is very creative architect. He is also really responsive to feedback and takes your suggestions and ideas into consideration. He understands VERMONT environment and designs to make sure that the house is suited for the snow and the winters. He is fun to work with as well!

1. He is knowledgeable and experienced with construction practices, builders, and contractors in the area.
2. Sam worked for us to implement our wishes and needs, not to make a statement about any ego-driven vision of his own.
3. He is down to earth and user friendly.

We hired Sam Scofield to design our house on the recommendation of our realtor. We couldn’t have been happier with the results. Sam was very responsive to our ideas and our vision of what we wanted in our new home and designed us the home of our dreams. He had excellent design ideas and helped us keep costs down with his helpful suggestions. We cannot say enough about how painless this building process was with Sam and we had no surprises. We are thrilled with the results.

Sam designed a garage/barn/apartment for me as well as doing some additional (and complicated) work in the house. I thoroughly enjoyed working with Sam and everyone involved in the project. Sam was very helpful in navigating through the options and explained all parts very clearly. I was very happy with both the process and outcome.
