Client Testimonials

Professional, knowledge based, creativity. Attention to detail. I won’t use anyone else.


I find Mr. Sparkle very thorough, great attention to detail and knowledgeable. He also is extremely good at communicating detailed information to the average non-engineering-skilled person. I hope to use him on many future projects as well.


Bucky’s experience and acumen allow him to efficiently hone in on the project information, extrapolate a number of engineering solutions, then carry the project from final design to BUILT with integrity!


Bucky is very professional. Accurate drawings. Thorough understanding of project. Flexible design options. Responsive to clients. Integrates design with other disciplines well. He’s able to figure individual site needs based on natural resources, human concerns and economic efficiency.


I am incredibly pleased with my experience with Bucky Sparkle. Beyond the design that met a tricky set of constraints, his work was critical in moving the entirety of my building project forward. Had it not been for his gentle assertiveness, I don’t think we would have received the green light to proceed. I was also pleased with how he worked with contractors to ensure that the project was completed to the specifications of the design. I recommend him with my highest regard.


Nice looking plan—it’s nice to look at something that is done well, with attention paid to detail. You’d be surprised at some of the plans I see….
