Following are testimonials from prior clients, additional refererences are available upon request.

When it eventually became clear that my dream home was going to be built according to an ancient Indian architectural philosophy or Vedic principles called Sthapatyaveda, finding a architect willing to listen, comprehend and follow through with the idea yet at the same time be economically viable proved to be a challenge. After much searching and interviewing a couple of architects, I finally found Charles Todd Helton Architect, Inc right in my own back yard. When Charles heard that my dream home incorporated green building principles and had a holistic approach towards the environment, he was very eager not only to learn more, but also be a part of this project. 

Working with Charles was a wonderful & pleasant experience; he would always his full attention to listen to your dreams & ideas no matter how ridiculous mine sounded at times. Never rushed you to make a decision but somehow managed to keep the project going and eventually delivering on schedule. Charles witty sense of humor and intellect at times fuelled some interesting conversations during our meetings. 

I saw the first glimpse of my dream come alive when Charles showed me the model of my dream home which he had built. I knew right then that I had made the right decision with going with Charles Helton as my architect. Today, many a people have commented me on the uniqueness of my home. I owe their appreciation & my pride of the Casa to the skill and talent of Charles Todd Helton. Without a minds hesitation, I will willfully recommend Charles for an architect. Especially if your dream home is radical like mine and no roll of the mill architect will want to touch.

I am pleased to be able to recommend Charles Todd Helton to anyone looking for architectural services. He did a fine job replicating my old Louisiana Victorian house into a modern steel frame design for Houston. He was always eager to listen and respond to suggestions and concerns in a prompt, courteous, and professional manner. You will like working with Charles Todd Helton.
