Firm Profile

Ellis and Sharon
Ellis and Sharon Nunn
Ellis Nunn & Associates is a member of the American Institute of Architects (AIA) and the National Council of Architects Registration Board (NCARB). Established in 1978, the firm has looked toward the future and maintained the position of long term client relations. The firm has an experienced professional staff composed of architects and technical personnel. Their combined experiences range from residential and commercial to historic preservation, timeless styles and mountain modern design. We strive to give each client our personal attention from the schematic design concept throughout construction documents to ultimately final completion. We look forward to working with you to create a home for your family and friends or just a small cabin in the woods. We can do it all.

Both Ellis and Sharon grew up in the Spokane, Washington and Coeur'dAlene, Idaho area of the Pacific Northwest. Keeping with their love of mountains and lakes took them back to the mountain region for their practice. Experience in high-end mountain-style, log and timber frame architecture has positioned Ellis Nunn & Associates as a leader in the field throughout the Rocky Mountain region as well as the entire United States. Many of the firm's projects have been featured in Log Homes Illustrated, Log Home Design Ideas, Log Home Living, The Log Home Book, Luxury Log Homes and Timber Frame, Timber Homes Illustrated, Country’s Best Vacation Log Homes, Big Sky Journal, Homestead Magazine, and the recently published coffee table book Leading Residential Architects. Ellis' homes have been featured on the Travel Channel in a special on Luxurious Log Homes. The Destination Channel is currently running a special called "Epic Log Homes" that features Thunder Ridge, a custom 25,000 square foot plus hybrid log home we designed in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

Ellis Nunn & Associates staff has kept up-to-date with the best energy efficient home technology and takes pride in providing the service our clients expect to receive. Please review some of our Testimonials that show the strong architect/client relationships we have attained through the years.
