“This is a testimonial letter for Garry Baker. I had the pleasure of working with Garry as the architect for the Valley of the Moon Teen Center. It was a long and difficult process and Garry’s support, dedication and creativity was critical to our success. Garry dedicated almost 6 years to see the project through. His willingness to contribute pro-bono a significant part of his effort and to accept a reduced fee for much of his work was central to the project being completed. Please visit the teen center web site at vomteencenter.com for more background. For more information on the building of the teen center, read my story of the journey at vomteencenter.com/village.html.
The Teen Center merged with the Boys and Girls Club of Sonoma.

This is a letter of reference for Garry Baker. He served as our architect during the addition of our dining room and remodeling of our kitche, from 9/02 till completion of the project 6/03. From the very start of the project right through to the end, we found him to be a pleasure tow ork with. He was responsive, available, receptive, creative, professional, and respectful of our ideas and budget. We love the rooms he designed for us. He took our general ideas and added useful and attractive modifications to improve flow, view, and other factors that we have very much appreciated. H e presented various options, exhibiting flexibility as we made our decisions. He offered resources from which to narrow difficult choices, and offered opinions where requested but honored our preferences. His communication with us throughout the project was excellent. He also worked well with our contractor, and he stepped in quickly whenever there were questions. Overall, we would gladly choose him again for another project and would highly recommend him to anyone consider his work.
