Founder, Managing Partner
Mason founded HVP in 1991 with a vision of integrating assessment, design and building knowledge while maintaining close client relation and communication. His passion for quality construction and historic preservation has been critical for HVP’s award winning recognition along with his combined knowledge of architecture, engineering, traditional trades and history gained from 30 years of experience with old and new buildings. Mason’s approach revolves around acquiring a thorough understanding of the existing conditions and future potential embodied within each structure.


Partner, Design to Production Coordinator
Dave is a high-energy, detail-oriented craftsman and a creative problem-solver, he is particularly good at figuring out the best way to build a design – using the right materials and techniques for the job. He skillfully balances the needs of client, design team, contractors, and construction crew and he is HVP’s secret weapon in completing building projects on time, while managing financial expectations for all parties – especially the homeowner.


Client Liaison
Dorothy’s experience as a customer support professional in the design industry working with architectural, contract and landscape designers, as well as fabrication and appliance suppliers along with her communication skills and a passion for design makes her ideal for helping to translate your ideas into reality. From first contact, she will you help assess your project’s scope, its must-haves and financials and will be your guide in navigating the building experience.


Residential Remodeling and Custom Home Designer
Joe has specialized in residential remodeling and custom home design for over twenty years. With his practical experience integrating design solutions and real world building methods (including green construction) he is key in helping clients manage remodeling issues while meeting their design expectations. He uses three-dimensional software that allows homeowners to visualize how their ideas will impact building and financial considerations before construction gets underway. All parties have access to this software and can engage in an interactive meeting process that promotes full participation.


Since we are only as good as the people we work with, we have over time carefully assembled a group of contractors, consultants, and suppliers whose professionalism and expertise we rely on for specialized knowledge in important areas like heating, air conditioning, lighting, plumbing, or preservation services like house histories. These professionals are critical in both the design and execution of a successful project. We work together to ensure that your project is given the attention it deserves every step of the way.
