Metropolitan Custom Homes has been using Rice Residential Design for several years now and we are more than satisfied with their outstanding work. Todd and his staff have always worked well with us and our home buyers. He has the remarkable ability to put a vision on to paper and every customer leaves knowing they are going to get the house of their dreams. I would recommend Rice Residential Design to any and all that asks for a great architect.
