Yeary Lindsey seeks to provide the highest level of personal service to our clients and create architecture of enduring quality. We believe that what makes us successful is our ability to be responsive to the needs of our clients. 

We are able to achieve excellence through insightful and sensitive design solutions that are reinforced with a constant refinement of detail. 

At Yeary Lindsey Architects, we focus mainly on the design of large and small custom residences, new additions, and renovations of existing homes. We have completed several small commercial and institutional projects as well.
