Background

Jeremy Jeffers is a licensed architect providing independent architectural consulting services. His work includes property and building systems analysis, residential design and small commercial projects. Jeremy is experienced in corporate and private retail/commercial architecture.

He is currently the AIA Idaho President-Elect, and serves on the Board of Directors for the Idaho Chapter Construction Specifications Institute. He is on the Advisory Board for the West Ada School District’s Renaissance High School Pre-Engineering and Pre-Architecture program. Jeremy is a graduate of the University of Idaho, and holds architectural licenses in ID, MT, NV, UT, WA and NB (emeritus). He is certified in Construction Documents Technology by the Construction Specifications Institute, and is also certified by the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards.

Jeremy has a deep passion for homes, reuse, and good sustainable design. He is committed to ease of maintenance and optimum cost value, and in the long term use of a building’s life cycle. He believes the practice of architecture is often expected to limit involvement to the simple design of buildings, but rejects these boundaries and believes that the practice has evolved to a wide range of influences, including both the built and natural environment.

Jeremy is fourth generation Idaho. He was raised in the timber country of Bonner County Idaho on a small tree farm and ranch located along the Clark Fork River. He started working in the forest when he was old enough to carry an ax and a cross-cut saw. Throughout his school days he cut fire wood and logged alongside his father, and worked on a cattle ranch to help pay for his architectural schooling. Through his work in the forest and on the ranch, he acquired a working knowledge and respect for the natural resources of Idaho. Today, he has brought these two worlds of Idaho and architecture together and is a supporter of the Idaho Forest Products Commission and the use of wood in construction.
