“His design skills are unquestionable. Jack designed and built a timeless and unique custom home that gave us everything we wanted. His design took advantage of our property in a way that gave us even more usable space than we had hoped for, all within the budget we gave him.”
- Chris Twomey, CEO of Arctic Cat
“Jack Smuckler doesn’t build homes… he creates masterpieces!”
- Jim Reynolds, CEO J R Reynolds, Inc.
“I would like to thank you very much for the beautiful articulate and caring job you put into designing and building our new home. There is no way we could summarize all of the wonderful custom ways that you made our dream home happen, because there are just too many! We walk from one room to the next still in awe of the different ceilings in almost every single room! The skylights, the vaults, the frayed ceilings, the custom crown moldings, the windows… so incredible. Above all, the design and forethought that you put into every part of the project has proven to us that you built a home that we are so very proud of and so very happy to live in. The sheer fact that you accomplished all of this in less than thirteen months looking at a design and completion of project of a ten thousand sq. ft. house really had us wondering in the beginning if this was even possible - but you made it happen! A great big additional thank you to your wonderful wife Margaret, who keeps it all together in your busy office.”
- Barbara & Ray Zehr, Edina
“I wanted to thank you for bringing the pictures of our new home we carried in our minds eye for so long into reality. Your vision, experience, imagination, and attention to all of the many details truly shine through in a beautiful result. You have surpassed our expectations in creating a wonderful home for us. It is truly our “dream home”.”
- Dr. Trudy Bonvino, Edina
"Jack Smuckler designed and built our house 20 plus years ago...His designs are timeless and absolutely insure future real estate values plus positively give the owner a design that they can be proud of....If we built again today there is no question who would design and build it!
His construction of our present home is superb with virtually no issues ever. He is an outstanding talented architect and a great construction firm. Our home is a soft contemporary which is what we like and Jack delivered more than we ever expected both in design and a trouble free home that truly is timeless!"
- Larry Reid, CEO Bloomington Chrysler, Jeep, Arrow Pontiac
"Lisa and I began the design process with you just shy of two years ago. We did so because we admired your architecture and we believed you to be an honorable gentleman. With our closing tomorrow, the construction process is nearing the end. We are fortunate to still consider you an honorable gentleman after the process. Not many homeowners can say that about their experience with a builder. We look forward to enjoying our new home with family and friends. Margaret and you are considered part of this group."
- Benjamin & Lisa Rubin
"My husband and I followed and admired Jack Smuckler's architecture for 20 years! We always loved Jack's imaginary designs and quality workmanship. He did not disappoint us when we were fortunate to have him design and build a home for us!
The design process was flawless. Jack guided us as we planned the home of our dreams. He is an amazing and talented architect; always giving us creative suggestions.
We also hired Jack to build our home. As the builder, he treated the project as if it was his own home, was on site often and was a tireless advocate for us.
We have now lived in our home for 8 years and are still excited to come home every day. We are honored and proud to say we live in a Jack Smuckler home!"
- Jimmy and Helain Pesis
"It was like handing your dreams over to someone you trust to make them come true."
- Elonn & Dr. Thomas Harmon of Rochester Mayo Clinic
“We are very delighted we let the architect who designed our home also be the builder of our home. As the architect and builder you clearly understood all of our needs and budget. The design and building process was seamless with no interpretation and the result was magnificent!”
- Dr. James Knoblaugh
"I have worked with Jack for nearly 30 years on multiple projects. He has such an attention to architectural detail in whatever genre he is working. His homes are always sited to maximize the use of the property and the view angles. And the exterior elevations are always elegant. But it is his treatment of the interior spaces that makes his work truly shine. There is always a rhythm to the spaces and there is a serenity about them. Even in expansive homes with large spaces, the rooms always seem accessible and never overwhelming. Jack's blueprints present real challenges for the trades people. To compress his complex three dimensional visions into two dimensional prints make his plans dense and full of information. He, therefore, only works with very skilled trades people. His completed projects remind me of that duck floating languidly on a pond, but is furiously paddling underneath. The homes are always warm, comfortable, elegant, and not fussy. But the complex thought and difficult details that went into making such an inviting home are not noticed."
