Mike Beganyi Design + Consulting, LLC

I have wandered through the design, woodworking, and timber framing world for the past 25 years and have played sculptor, carpenter, architecture student, instructor, barn restorer, timber framer, designer, project manager, and mover of heavy objects. I live and work in Vermont pushing pixels as an independent designer and consultant.

I trained as a sculptor and designer at the Cleveland Institute of Art, followed by a stint in New York at the Graduate School of Architecture Planning and Preservation at Columbia University.

Along the way I have worked in marketing, graphics, carpentry, woodworking, and as a studio assistant to a pair of artists. The core of my work revolves around using wood for building – timber frame, heavy timber, and small building design. As a designer and problem solver at heart I also take on work that has ranged from graphics and web to product and furniture design.

I frequently travel throughout New England and beyond to work with my timber frame clients and teach basic and advanced SketchUp and SketchUp Pro and LayOut classes to craftsmen, designers and architects.
