Hendricks Architecture already ahd a website when they approached Playforward. Their existing site was basic HTML and lacked some highly desired features to boost search engine rankings and usability.

The existing site had a good design so that didn’t change much, but the site had to be recoded from the ground up to integrate WordPress as the chosen publishing platform. Images were replaced with text where possible so search engines could see more of the site, and a blog was added so articles could continually be added.

About Hendricks Architecture:

Hendricks Architecture is dedicated to innovative design solutions and focuses on quality client service. The bulk of our experience lies with custom designed mountain homes and lodges. Whether it’s a modest rustic cabin, a ranch home, a waterfront chalet, or a luxury ski lodge you seek, we will devote our time and energy to your specific goals. This is your dream, your vision, and we are simply linking your dream to reality.

Having designed residences throughout the Northwest, including Washington, Idaho and Montana, we understand the unique issues that rugged terrain poses, such as heavy snow loads, steep slopes, and difficult soil conditions. We are also familiar with diverse local building codes and neighborhood restrictions.  We are a full service architecture firm, offering architectural design, planning, construction management and interior design services.

Hendricks Architecture seeks creative and innovative design solutions that harmonize with the natural environment. We are well versed in the different technologies that can be incorporated into a sustainable, or “Built-Green” home, whether it is achieving a LEED rating, or simply saving on utility costs.  Some of these aspects include longevity and efficiency of tasteful materials, as well as high-performing and cost-effective solutions. We have also been incorporating such elements as reclaimed timbers from old buildings to give the structures a more rustic and lived-in look.

John Hendricks’ profound appreciation of the mountain and ranch vernaculars brings a quality of timelessness to his work. He creates buildings that are both elegant and casual, capturing at once the romance and the reality of mountain life. From the overall scope to crafting the finest details, the architects at Hendricks Architecture treat every project as a work of art, while at the same time keeping in tune with the client’s functional and personal wishes.  We work with a small number of clients at any given time to devote our full attention to their needs.

As parents we want something absolutely unique for our babies. Be it the baby’s nursery or the stroller or the babies bedding. As parents we think it should reflect the personality of the baby.
