Tim is AWESOME SAUCE! The building inspectors in Livonia really had us in a jam and Tim came in and handled everything. I called him right after having a heated talk with the city and Tim was so understanding and had such a soothing spirit he instantly made me feel 10x better. He met us the same day and we never had another bad experience with the city again. We would definitely recommend and hire him again!

Home Business Owner, Southfield

When I was confronted with the fact that my entire home was jeopardized by catastrophic stream-bank erosion, I was devastated. Everyone I called, including leading environmental engineers in the state of Michigan, told me that my house could not be saved. I did not think the problem could be solved until Tim Nichols Architect developed an affordable solution to stabilize the stream bank and permanently reinforce the foundation of my house. Thank you Tim!
