He also had patrons, who became friends, like Mr. Steven Ross, owner of PolyAmerica Inc. who consulted Tom on his industrial and residential projects for the next 25 years. This was a level of service provided and over a long period of time and this type of "relationship" and this became the basis on how Tom consults to his clients today.

This need has allowed his design talents on many north texas homes. This experience is full of more design opportunities as most of the residences have swimming pools, patios, grading and drainage issues, fountains, special paving and steps, walls, fences and designed gates for auto and pedestrians. So the quality of the design and the amount of ideas continue to provide Tom with the Life experience he so desires.
